Folic Acid

  • Folic acid is a water-soluble, B-complex vitamin that is available orally and parenterally. This vitamin is found in a variety of foods including liver, kidneys, yeast, and leafy, green vegetables. A deficiency in folic acid can cause a variety of hematologic complications including megaloblastic and macrocytic anemias. In addition to treating megaloblastic and macrocytic anemias as well as tropical sprue, this vitamin is also used as a diagnostic aid for folate deficiency. In recent years, it has been discovered that adequate folic acid intake can substantially decrease the risk of congenital neural tube defects.
