Folic acid is a B group vitamin that is very important for the normal growth process of maternal tissues in pregnancy and for the process of cell division.
Folic acid also contributes to the normal function of the immune system. Food sources rich in folic acid are green leafy vegetables such as spinach, chard, and thistles.
Other good sources are legumes, broccoli, citrus fruits, whole grains, and liver. Cooking and food handling reduce folic acid content. Folic acid, like all B vitamins, is water-soluble and is rapidly eliminated in the urine.
Regular introduction of it through the diet is therefore essential. The demand for this vitamin increases particularly during pregnancy. Signs of a folic acid deficiency are depression, insomnia, irritability, fatigue, weakness, and macrocytic anemia.
Jamieson's Folic Acid tablets are made through a process called "Dry Compression" whereby the ingredients are mixed dry, avoiding the use of alcohol, other chemical solvents, high and prolonged temperatures.
This system prevents the folic acid from being altered and ensures the integrity, full efficacy and absolute purity of the product.
