Folic acid is also known as folate or vitamin B9, but they are different forms. More precisely, vitamin B9 is found in two forms: folate and folic acid. Folate is its natural form, while folic acid is the synthetic form and is not found naturally in the body, but exists only as a food supplement.

Folic acid is one of the essential nutrients for the body and is part of the B complex, along with eight other water-soluble vitamins (soluble in water). Inside the body, folic acid undergoes transformations and becomes vitamin B9, so that it can be assimilated. It contributes in several ways to the proper functioning of the body.


Folic acid has a role in the production of DNA, in regulating the functions of the nervous system, it contributes to the transformation of proteins and lipids, it is involved in the production of energy in the body and in the metabolism of carbohydrates.

This is also important for future mothers, because it can contribute to reducing the risk of congenital malformations. The doctor can recommend the additional intake of folic acid depending on the needs of each person. As a rule, pregnant women require a higher intake of folic acid.

Folic acid has multiple benefits, including the fact that it helps prevent congenital malformations. In the early stages of pregnancy, low folate levels have been associated with an increased risk of malformations in the brain, bone marrow and spine.
