Q. What is folic acid?
A. Folic acid is a water soluble vitamin in the B group which occurs naturally in many foods and is also produced synthetically. Folic acid which occurs naturally in food is called "folate". Synthetically manufactured folic acid is used in food supplements, is contained in fortified foods or is used in medicinal products. Here the term "folic acid" refers to both forms of the vitamin.

Q.In which foods does folic acid occur naturally?
A.Folates occur naturally in foods of animal and plant origin. Liver, green vegetables like spinach or broccoli, pulses, wheat germ, wholegrain cereal products, yeast, egg yolk, citrus fruits and juices are particularly rich in folates.

Q.Why does the body need folic acid?
A.Folic acid is involved in a large number of metabolic processes and is, therefore, important for all cell division and growth processes. If too little of this vitamin in present, then metabolic processes cannot take place normally. This may lead to disease symptoms like anaemia, dyspepsia and changes in the mucous membranes. The unborn child needs folic acid for the neural tube to close properly.

Q.Why should women wishing to start a family and women in the first three months of pregnancy take folic acid tablets as well?
A.The neural tube of the unborn baby closes in the first four weeks of pregnancy, a stage at which many women do not realise they are pregnant. In around one to two out of 1,000 pregnancies the spine does not close at all or not completely. This leads to a neural tube defect. The most well known is spina bifida, which is referred to popularly as "open back". There are various causes for neural tube defects. Studies have shown that the incidence can be reduced by increasing folic acid intake during the critical phase of neural tube closure. For precautionary reasons intake should commence four weeks prior to conception and continue up to the end of the 12th week of pregnancy. Even now we still do not know how folic acid works. We simply know that it does.
