Vitamin B9, also called folic acid, vitamin Bc and vitamin M, is odourless yellow or orange-yellow crystal or power. It is composed of 3 parts; pteridine connected to paraaminobenzoic acid (PABA), which forms Pteroic acid. Finally, Pteroic acid is connected to glutamic acid to form folic acid. Folate and folic acid are both forms of B9. Folate occurs naturally in fresh foods, whereas folic acid is the synthetic form found in supplements. Body needs folate to produce red blood cells, as well as components of the nervous system. It helps in the formation and creation of DNA and maintaining normal brain function, and is a critical part of spinal fluid. It has also been proven to reduce the risk for an NTD-affected (neural tube defect) pregnancy by 50 to 70 percent. Folic acid is vital for proper cell growth and development of the embryo.

As Health News stated, "Folate delivers head-to-toe health advantages." We offer high quality vitamin B9. It helps in the metabolism of several amino acids such as histidine, glycine, serine, and methionine. Folic acid is essential for cell division, production of DNA and RNA, and assists the prevention of changes in DNA, which may lead to cancer. It is especially important in aiding rapid cell division and growth, such as in infancy and pregnancy. Children and adults both require folic acid to produce healthy red blood cells and prevent anemia.

Deficiency of folic results in anemia, depression, dementia, increased rate of heart disease and cancer, loss of appetite, weight loss and so on.
