Folic Acid by Natural Factors
Natural Factors - Folic Acid 1 mg. - 90 Tablets
Natural Factors Folic Acid is used for the production of DNA and red blood cells, making it essential during pregnancy for normal fetal development. It supports brain and nervous system function and benefits mental health. Folic Acid is also needed for protein metabolism and may support cardiovascular health.
What is folic acid?
Folic acid is a B vitamin needed for cell replication and growth. Folic acid helps form building blocks of DNA, the body’s genetic information, and building blocks of RNA, needed for protein synthesis in all cells. Therefore, rapidly growing tissues, such as those of a fetus, and rapidly regenerating cells, like red blood cells and immune cells, have a high need for folic acid. Folic acid deficiency results in a form of anemia that responds quickly to folic acid supplementation.
Where is it found?
Beans, leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits, beets, wheat germ, and meat are good sources of folic acid.

A quality herbal product starts with the highest quality fresh organic plant material. The efficacy of herbal products has always been affected by growing conditions, harvesting, processing and storage. At Factor Farms in beautiful Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada our quality can be guaranteed as we control the entire process from seedling to finished product.
To grow herbs organically no chemical fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides or pesticides are allowed. We use only natural substances that have been approved by the organic industry. You can be assured that the fresh herb extracts contain no traces of unwanted chemical. Even the seed and plant sources are organic.
To be organically certified, certification inspectors work closely with growers to ensure that the organic standards are adhered to. We must keep detailed records of what we use on our farm. Even after harvest, processing is regulated so that no harmful chemicals are used to manufacture the fresh herb extracts.
Local cultivation of medicinal herbs at Factors Farms ensures that the herbs are picked, processed, and extracted at just the right time when the active ingredients are at their peak.
Natural Factor knows that the natural habitats of many herbs are shrinking and that over-harvesting from the wild can endanger native medicinal plant populations. So organic cultivation of herbs is preferred over "wild crafting".

Seems to work ok, and my dr (who prescribed folic acid to me) said it was fine. The thing I don't like about it, they dissolve quicker than I can swallow. I'm going to be looking for something else and I hope with all my allergies I can find something as well suited as this product.
My doctor recommended that I take 1mg Folic Acid. Lucky Vitamin had fast processing and shipping and at a real good price.
THIS PRODUCT IS IDENTICAL TO THE PRESCRIPTION FOLIC ACID I HAD BEEN TAKING, EXCEPT THE LUCKY VITAMIN PRICE PROVIDES A CONSIDERABLE SAVING TO ME. THANK YOU AGAIN
Very good wish it would be in capsule form
This product is a good one and saves me money on my Drug Insurance policy. I am required to take one tablet a day.
