  1. Prevention and Treatment of Folate Deficiency

    • Usage: Folic acid is used to treat and prevent folate deficiency, which can result from poor diet, malabsorption syndromes, certain anemias, and conditions that increase the need for folate (such as pregnancy and lactation).
  2. Megaloblastic Anemia

    • Usage: It is used to treat megaloblastic anemia, a type of anemia characterized by the production of abnormally large and immature red blood cells due to folate deficiency.
  3. Pregnancy and Preconception Care

    • Usage: Supplementation with folic acid is crucial for women who are planning to become pregnant and those who are pregnant. Adequate folic acid intake reduces the risk of neural tube defects (NTDs) such as spina bifida and anencephaly in the developing fetus.
  4. Certain Medical Conditions

    • Usage: Folic acid is used in the management of certain conditions associated with increased folate requirements or impaired folate metabolism, such as chronic hemolytic anemia, liver disease, and kidney dialysis.
  5. Methotrexate Therapy

    • Usage: It is often prescribed alongside methotrexate therapy to mitigate the drug's folate-lowering side effects, commonly used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and certain cancers.
  6. Hyperhomocysteinemia

    • Usage: Folic acid helps in lowering elevated homocysteine levels, which are associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Mechanism of Action

Folic acid is converted in the body to tetrahydrofolate, which is a coenzyme involved in the synthesis of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) and the metabolism of amino acids. It plays a vital role in cell division and growth.
