What's Folic Acid (Folate)?
Folic acid or Vitamin B9, is a water-soluble vitamin that is

nucleic acids (DNA and RNA), synthesis of red blood cells
as well as supporting the functioning of immune and nervous systems.

dairy products, eggs, meat, poultry foods, seafoods and grains
become the prime sources for acquiring it.
