You probably mean FOLIC ACID, and the best natural sources of this vitamin are dark green leafy vegetables, especially sprouts and spinach, green beans, peas, oranges, fortified breakfast cereals and bread, yeast extract, and nuts.
Most health shops can also provide specific supplements, but be careful not to exceed recommended dosages as this can in turn can mask a deficiency of vitamin B12. If you’re planning on taking folic acid supplements, you should be aware of this – to be on the safe side, ask your family doctor for advice.
