The supplement Olimp folic acid contains 400mcg of folic acid per tablet.
Olimp Folic Acid is a dietary supplement containing 400μg of folic acid per capsule. Folic acid (vitamin B9) has many functions in the body and is indispensable for its proper functioning.
The active form of folic acid is a cofactor in enzymes involved in the synthesis of essential substances for the functioning of cells, such as DNA and RNA. It is precisely for this reason that sufficient intake of folic acid is particularly important during the development of the fetus when there is a formation of numerous tissues and bone marrow. In addition, folic acid provides a substrate for the synthesis of adrenaline, noradrenaline and thyroxine.
The use of folic acid in the form of a dietary supplement is recommended primarily for pregnant women, who are particularly vulnerable to its shortage. Many studies have shown that the use of folic acid before pregnancy and during pregnancy prevents embryogenic diseases. In addition, folic acid deficiency can be seen as reduced fetal weight, problems during pregnancy and an increased risk of abortion.
Folic acid also prevents the occurrence of megaloblastic anemia, as it is essential for the production of erythrocytes. The lack of folic acid can thus lead to the formation of megalocytes, i.e. erythrocytes with impaired structure and function. Megalocytes are larger than normal erythrocytes and have a shorter lifespan. Due to the increased need for folic acid, pregnant women are all the more exposed to the occurrence of megaloblastic anemia
Olimp Folic Acid is therefore a dietary supplement designed to supplement the increased needs for folic acid, especially for future mothers.
