Folic acid or folate is a B complex vitamin needed by the body to manufacture red blood cells. B complex vitamins are essential to properly metabolise fats and proteins and play an important role in maintaining muscles and the health of the digestive tract. B complex vitamins promote the health of the nervous system, skin, hair, and other body tissues. Folic acid aids in the production of DNA and RNA, the body's genetic material and is especially important during periods of high growth, such as infancy, adolescence and pregnancy. It works closely with vitamin B12 to regulate the formation of red blood cells and the function of iron in the body. A deficiency of this vitamin causes certain types of anaemia (low red blood cell count).
