FAQs

What is the Benefit of Taking Folic Acid?

Folic acid, the synthetic form of vitamin B9, offers numerous health benefits, crucial for DNA synthesis and repair, cell division, and growth. It is especially important during periods of rapid growth, such as pregnancy and fetal development, to prevent birth defects of the brain and spine, like neural tube defects. For adults, folic acid aids in the production of red blood cells, reducing the risk of anemia, supports heart health by helping to lower homocysteine levels (an amino acid linked to heart disease), and may reduce the risk of certain cancers and memory loss diseases.

Is it OK to Take Folic Acid Every Day?

Yes, it is generally safe for most people to take folic acid supplements daily, especially for women of childbearing age, who are recommended to take 400 micrograms (mcg) daily to prevent neural tube defects. The daily intake should not exceed 1,000 mcg unless prescribed by a healthcare provider, as excessively high amounts may mask vitamin B12 deficiency symptoms and have other adverse effects.

Is B12 the Same as Folic Acid?

No, B12 (cobalamin) and folic acid (vitamin B9) are different, although both are B vitamins and work closely together in the body. They both play roles in red blood cell formation and the proper functioning of the nervous system. A deficiency in either can lead to similar types of anemia. However, vitamin B12 has additional roles, particularly in brain health, nerve tissue health, and the synthesis of DNA and RNA.

What are the Symptoms of Low Folic Acid?

Symptoms of low folic acid (folate deficiency) can include:

  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Headaches
  • Paleness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Irritability
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Mouth sores and swollen tongue (glossitis)
  • Changes in hair, skin, or nail pigmentation

Folate deficiency can lead to megaloblastic anemia, where red blood cells are larger than normal and not as effective in carrying oxygen. This condition can cause symptoms of tiredness, weakness, and more severe complications if not addressed.
