Therapeutic Class: Water-soluble Synthetic Folate
Folic acid or vitamin B9 is a water-soluble synthetic folate. Naturally occurring folate is found in many foods. Folates have an important role in nucleoprotein synthesis, homocysteine metabolism, cellular division, erythropoeisis, neural development, and the synthesis of neurotransmitters. Folic acid is absorbed primarily by carrier-mediated diffusion within the proximal small intestine. Folic acid supplementation frequently is prescribed in humans during pregnancy and when animals or humans are taking drugs that may interfere with folate absorption. There are multiple drugs that may affect folate levels due to competitive, reversible inhibition of the enzyme dihydrofolate reductase.
