HEALTHY FOOD CHOICES - FOLIC ACID

 

ALICE MERRITT: Now I'm going to talk to you about folic acid. Folic acid is the synthetic or supplement form of Folate. Healthy foods that are high in folate are things like broccoli, spinach, asparagus, oranges, bananas, and a lot of breads, pastas and cereals are fortified with 100% of your daily need for folic acid. Folic acid is very important in generating new cells and maintaining healthy cells. This makes it very important during stages of big growth, such as infancy and pregnancy.
 It's recommended that you get a minimum of 400 micrograms of folic acid daily. So, the important things to remember about folic acid is, 1, eat foods that are high in folate, such as broccoli, asparagus, spinach, oranges, bananas. And if you're a woman of childbearing age, make sure you take a multivitamin with a minimum of 400 micrograms of folic acid.
 Folic acid is also important in preventing anemia and making good red blood cells. Folic acid is very important and a very great vitamin for both men and women to get daily. These are all great tips on why folic acid is healthy.
