Benefits of Folic Acid In Diet
Folic acid is indicated for the prevention of some birth defects and appears, as well, to confer significant protection against cardiovascular disease and some forms of cancer. While available evidence suggests significant preventive/protective effects against various cancers.

It has been hypothesized that folic acid supplementation might help prevent Alzheimer’s disease and recurrent spontaneous early pregnancy loss.
