Folic acid, also known as folate, is a B vitamin that can be found in a variety of fruits and vegetables. It can also be chemically synthesized. Folate, a watersoluble vitamin, helps the body form red blood cells and aids in the formation of genetic material within every body cell. Folic Acid is a hematopoietic vitamin present, free or combined with one or more additional molecules of L- (+)-glutamic acid, in liver, kidney, mushrooms, spinach, yeast, green leaves, and grasses.
A nutritional delivery form of folate. Folic acid and its derivatives are essential mediators of one-carbon metabolism within cells.
