So, what is folíc acid?

Folic acid is a B-vitamin that plays a crucial role in the formation of DNA and red blood cells. It is particularly important during pregnancy, as it helps prevent birth defects in the developing fetus. Folic acid can be found naturally in many foods, such as leafy greens, beans, and fortified cereals, but it can also be taken as a supplement. In addition to its benefits for fetal development, folic acid has also been linked to a reduced risk of heart disease and certain types of cancer. Adequate intake of folic acid is essential for overall health and well-being.
