Folic acid plays an essential role in cell multiplication and is critical for the formation of DNA and RNA, and is therefore especially important in fetal development. It is currently widely accepted and established that the lack of folate during the first trimester of pregnancy, increases the risk of defects in the neural tube during fetal development. Folic acid is also known for taking part in an important way the body regulation of homocysteine, a similar to amino acid compound implicated in cardiovascular well-being imbalances.
