Folic acid is a water-soluble B vitamin essential to cell growth. Healthy red blood cells need folic acid in order to mature properly‚ and not having enough folic acid can cause you to become anemic (a condition resulting from an iron deficiency). Babies grow very rapidly before they are born‚ so pregnant women require even more folic acid than normal. Folic acid is also required by your body to efficiently utilize vitamin B-12‚ which plays an important role in a wide range or processes such as the production of red blood cells and the maintenance of your nervous system.
Folic acid is found in beans‚ citrus fruits‚ green leafy vegetables‚ meat‚ and wheat germ. Unfortunately‚ even with a nutritious diet‚ many people take in less folic acid than they need. This is due to the fact that your body may find it difficult to absorb the folic acid found in foods. If you’re concerned‚ your doctor can measure your folic acid levels by testing your blood; if you’re found to have a folic acid deficiency‚ your doctor may advise you to take folic acid supplements.
Folic acid deficiency is common in alcoholics‚ women taking birth control pills‚ people with liver or kidney disease‚ and those suffering from problems with intestinal absorption. A range of prescription drugs can also interfere with your ability to absorb folic acid from your food. If you’re pregnant or planning to conceive‚ you should also take folic acid supplements in order to reduce your baby’s risk of developing birth defects.
