At home folate test to monitor levels of folate serum in the body with online results in 5 days.
Folate or folic acid, known as vitamin B9 works in conjunction with vitamin B12 and vitamin C to help the body break down, use and make proteins. Folate generates red and white blood cells. It helps to produce DNA and RNA and sets out the building blocks for the rapid growth of cells during infancy, adolescence and pregnancy. Folate helps the development of a baby's neural tube develop into their brain and spinal cord during gestation.
