What is Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is also known to have a number of biological functions. It is required for growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. It is also necessary to form collagen, an important protein used to make skin, scar tissue, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels.
What is Folic Acid?
Folic acid is the term used for the synthetic form of Folate (vitamin B9). Folic Acid is available as a supplement, whereas folate is naturally found in foods -- but the terms Folic Acid & Folate are used interchangeably.
Folic Acid is a B-Vitamin, B-9. Vitamin B-9 is a water-soluble vitamin so gets cleared from your system on a regular basis. As the body cannot store much of it, it is a regular dietary requirement.
Food sources of folate include fortified breakfasts, enriched rice and breads, fruit and green leafy vegetables. The body absorbs 100 % of folic acid, but only two-thirds of folate from food.
Together with the other B vitamins, Folic Acid helps the body to break down and convert the food that we eat into energy.
What is Iron?
Iron which is an essential mineral for the body. It is part of haemoglobin (the red blood cells oxygen-carrying component). Those who suffer from Iron deficiency tend to tire easily which may be due to their bodys levels of oxygen being reduced. Iron is also an element of myoglobin which helps muscle cells store oxygen. Without an ample amount of iron, adenosine triphosphate (otherwise known as ATP which is the fuel the body runs on) cannot be properly made. As a result, some iron-deficient people become fatigued even when their haemoglobin levels are normal. Iron deficiency generally occurs in pregnant women, young women during their reproductive years, and children.Take Folic Acid with Vitamin C & Iron tablets if you:
