So, what is folsyre?

Folsyre, also known as folic acid or vitamin B9, is an essential nutrient that plays a critical role in various bodily processes. It helps to create and repair DNA, produce red blood cells, and support fetal development during pregnancy. Folsyre is commonly found in leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits, beans, and fortified cereals. While rare, deficiency in folsyre can lead to anemia, birth defects, and other health issues. Supplementation with folsyre may be recommended for pregnant women, individuals with malabsorption disorders, or those who do not consume enough through their diet.
