Global folic acid market: High medical value of folic acid
Folic acid is a fully oxidized monoglutamate form of the folate. It is a water-soluble vitamin and is used in dietary supplements and fortified foods. Folic acid is needed in the human body for cell replication and growth. It helps in the formation of DNA and RNA. RNA is needed for protein synthesis of the cells, which is very important for the body. Therefore, rapidly growing tissues such as fetus and rapidly generating cells such as red blood cells and immune cells have a very high need for folic acid.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on life science research tools, “Folic acid supplements are essential for pregnant women and also for the women who are planning to become pregnant. Folic acid reduces the risk of congenital disabilities of a baby’s brain and spine such as a spina bifida and anencephaly by 50% or more.”
