Folic acid vitamin

«Folate, distinct forms of which are known as folic acid, folacin, and vitamin B9,[7] is one of the B vitamins.[4] It may be taken by mouth or by injection.[4] The recommended adult daily intake of folate in the U.S. is 400 micrograms from foods or dietary supplements.[8] Folate in the form of folic acid is used to treat anemia caused by folic acid deficiency.[4] Folic acid is also used as a supplement by women during pregnancy to reduce the risk of neural tube defects (NTDs) in the baby.[4][9] Low levels in early pregnancy are believed to be the cause of more than half of babies born with NTDs.[8] More than 80 countries use fortification of certain foods with folic acid as a measure to decrease the rate of NTDs.[10] Long-term supplementation is also associated with small reductions in the risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease.[11]
