Folic Acid 30 Tablets

What is Folic Acid?

Folic Acid aids in combatting fatigue, the production and maintenance of new cells in your body as well as the prevention of DNA alterations that can result in cancer.

Folic acid is used to treat anaemia (loss of red blood cells) brought on by folic acid deficiency. Red blood cells transport oxygen from your lungs to your body’s tissues. When there aren’t enough healthy red blood cells to deliver oxygen to your body’s organs, anaemia develops. As a result, feeling cold and signs of fatigue or weakness are frequent. Anaemia comes in a variety of forms, but iron-deficiency anaemia is the most prevalent.

Your risk of anaemia rises if your diet persistently lacks iron, vitamin B12, folic acid and copper.

 People with a higher risk of Folic Acid deficiency are:

  • Those who suffer from ailments like celiac disease and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) interfere with nutrient absorption.

Take 1 tablet per day after a meal. Take 2 hours before or after any medication. Other medications’ efficacy may be impacted by folic acid too. Avoid taking your folic acid within two hours of having aluminium- or magnesium-containing antacids, since this may prevent the folic acid from being effectively absorbed.
