EL Folic Tablets ( Folic Acid )

Folic acid is a form of the water-soluble vitamin B9. Folic acid is a key factor in the making (synthesis) of nucleic acid - nucleic acid is one of a family of large molecules including DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and RNA (ribonucleic acid). 

The human body does not store folic acid, we have to consume it every day in order to make sure we have adequate amounts. Vitamin B9 (folic acid and folate inclusive) is vital for several bodily functions, including synthesizing of DNA, RNA and to repair it, aiding rapid cell division and growth & to produce healthy red blood cells. It is important for pregnant women to have enough folic acid to prevent major birth defects of her baby's brain or spine (neural tube defects, including spina bifida and anencephaly). It enhances brain health. Spirulina has a very high concentration of bio-available iron and is excellent during pregnancy and for those with anemia and it will not cause constipation. Spirulina may also help manage your blood cholesterol and improve your health if you have Type 2 diabetes. Bilberry extract includes a compound called anthocyanidin, which is really a strong antioxidant. Anthocyanidin enhances the flexibility of blood vessels and helps you to build strong capillaries. With their potent antioxidant activity anthocyanins protect body tissues, particularly blood vessels, from oxidizing agents circulating in the blood. 


Folate acts as a cofactor for enzymes involved in DNA and RNA biosynthesis. Folate is also involved in the supply of methyl groups to the so-called methylation cycle, which uses methionine and makes homocysteine. The folate cofactor, N5-methyltetrahydrofolate, donates its methyl group to a vitamin B12-dependent enzyme, methionine synthase, which recycles homocysteine back to methionine. The cell's ability to methylate important compounds such as proteins, lipids and myelin will be compromised by deficiency of folate or vitamin B12, resulting in impaired cellular function. Methionine synthase plays another role: it converts circulating N5-methyltetrahydrofolate into tetrahydrofolate. The latter but not the former can act as a substrate for polyglutamate synthase, thereby becoming retained in the cell as polyglutamate. Interruption of DNA biosynthesis or methylation reactions could prevent the proper closure of the neural tube. Such inhibition could be caused by simple deficiency of either folic acid or vitamin B12. Studies comparing serum folate and vitamin B12 status in women who have had an affected pregnancy to those in control women indicate no difference between the two groups and show that most cases are not clinically deficient in either vitamin. A small number of studies using the level of folate in red blood cells, which is a better reflection of tissue stores, confirm this, suggesting instead a metabolic impairment in the biochemical functions of one of these vitamins. The trials using folic acid to prevent neural tube defects thus seem to be effectively overcoming a metabolic block rather than treating folate deficiency.



How many tablets does one pack of EL FOLIC tablet?

How many tablets does one pack of EL FOLIC tablet?

Some Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA)* levels are above 100%, is this safe? 

How many tablets does one pack of EL FOLIC tablet?

It contains 30 tablets per pack. It is recommended to take 1 or 2 tablets per day. 

How long does it take to experience any benefit?

Results vary amongst individuals. There is no maximum length of time over which EL FOLIC tablet may be used. A regular intake is recommended. 

Some Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA)* levels are above 100%, is this safe?

Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the RDA, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the RDA. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level. 

*The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the RDA, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health.
