Folate Explained 0

Folate is a B vitamin and is otherwise known as Pteroyl Glutamic Acid, or PGA. It is an important coenzyme, necessary for DNA production and new cell creation and is known to be particularly important for the prevention of neural tube defects in infants, causing conditions such as Spina Bifida. Deficiency of folate also leads to a type of anaemia, leading to symptoms such as fatigue, irritability and heart palpitations.
