Folic Acid 5mg Tabs 28’s
A vitamin essential in the production and maintenance of new cells. Folic acid is a vitamin used to prevent or treat a deficiency (lack of) folic acid in the body. Folic Acid 5mg Tablets are used in the treatment and prevention of certain types of anaemia (low red blood cells), e.g. megaloblastic anaemia or pernicious anaemia caused by folate and/or vitamin B12 deficiency. Adequate amounts of vitamin B12 (Hydroxocobalamin) need to be given along with folic acid. Folic Acid 5mg Tablets are also used when there is deficiency of folic acid, for example when ?phenytoin? a drug used for epilepsy (fits) is taken. Folic acid Tablets can also be given to some women before and during pregnancy to prevent spina bifida (an abnormality of the spine) in babies, which can be caused by deficiency of this vitamin.
