Dear Tabie
Folic acid (vit B 9) is necessary for the production and maintenance of new cells especially during infancy and pregnancy and it is also necessary to make normal red blood cells and prevent anemia. It prevents defects of the spinal cord in developing foetuses so is an important supplement to be taken while pregnant.
