Don't store avocado like this: it's dangerous

Folic acid (vitamin B) is essential for production of new cells, red blood cells and for the proper functioning of the brain. Having said that, we understand very well why it is of importance fundamental in pregnancy, and it has been proven by several studies including that folic acid helps prevent birth defects such as spina bifida.





There are many plant foods particularly rich in B9 (precisely folic acid) among these: brewer's yeast, avocado, green leafy vegetables, rice and legumes. At certain times of life, however, there may be a need for an intake greater than folic acid (for example pregnancy but also the months preceding conception), so it may be advisable to supplement.

We have selected some folic acid supplements for you which can be useful in case of greater need for this vitamin of group B. However, we always remind you that, as reported on the packaging: "Supplements are not intended as a substitute for a varied, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle". Always read the leaflet to know all the characteristics of the product and take it under indication and following the advice of your doctor to avoid contraindications and obtain the desired results.

These products could in fact cause side effects if you suffer from certain diseases or interact with ongoing drug therapies. Here then is what is more important than ever consult a doctor before taking any product, although natural, to avoid problems.
