Folic Acid is a type of vitamin B and is found naturally in the foods we consume such as asparagus, beets, broccoli, brussels sprouts, and spinach. We carry this medication in 1mg and 5mg!

Folic acid is important as it helps your body with producing and maintaining new cells while also preventing DNA from changing and possibly becoming cancerous. This medication is prescribed to those who do not consume enough folic acid in their diet and have a lack of red blood cells (folic acid deficiency). Those who have lack red blood cells often times develop anemia, a condition causing you to become weak with brittle nails, pale skin, cold hands and feet, and headaches.

Folic acid is effective for the treatment of folic acid deficiency as it is a direct substitute for the missing folic acid causing the deficiency.

If you are unsure how to take this medication, call your healthcare professional and they can give you proper and accurate directions based on your condition.
