Vitamin B9 Supplements

Vitamin B9 or Folic Acid, also called Folacin and Folate plays important role in the synthesis of the nucleic acids (which constitute the chromosomes). It is also needed for the normal development of blood cells.

Folic acid occurs in food in two forms: free folates and bound folates. The total folates represent both the groups. In man, free folate is rapidly absorbed; primarily form the proximal part of small intestine. The availability of bound folate is uncertain.

Folic acid gets destroyed with overcooking and thus creates deficiency in our body. It undergoes fast destruction on heating in neutral and alkaline medium.
