Folic Acid

Also referenced as: Vitamin B9, Folate, folic acid, folacin

A significant member in the family of B-complex vitamins is folate, or as it is most commonly known, folic acid. Folate occurs naturally in a variety of foods. Vitamin supplements, enrichment processes, and the consumption of fortified foods (mainly cereal grains) make Vitamin B9 readily available for utilization. These food processing standards have brought folate (particularly folic acid) supplementation into mainstream consciousness. The modern inclusion of folic acid into dietary sources may prove to be one of the most important links in understanding the role of vitamin supplementation in chronic disease and illness prevention.


Like B12, the coenzyme form of B9 is tetrahydrofolate (THF). This important coenzyme assists the body in performing a variety of functions. By assisting in the synthesis of coenzymes purine and pyrimidine, THF is responsible for processing DNA and activating its overall mapping capabilities. Folate also assists DNA in the transmission of genetic code from cell to cell. This intricate process is critical for the formation and proper growth of various systems located throughout our bodies.


Folate, in assistance with B12, is also exceptionally important in amino acid synthesis and the development of cells; primarily red blood cells. The processes dependant on folate may be among the most complex of any relating to the B-compound family of vitamins.
