Indications & Use:

The prevention and treatment of folic acid deficiency in the following cases:
  • Inadequate nutrition or intestinal malabsorption.
  • Pregnant and nursing mothers.
  • Women before and during early pregnancy for the prevention of fetus neural tube defects (NTDs).

Composition and mechanism of action:

  • Folic acid, after conversion to its active form (tetrahydrofolic acid) by dihydrofolate reductase, is necessary for normal erythropoiesis, synthesis of purine and thymidilates, metabolism of amino acids such as glycine and methionine, and metabolism of histidine.
  • Folic acid helps in breaking down homocystein which may promote atherosclerosis.
  • It is almost completely absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and eliminated renally.
