Jan 2-8 is National Folic Acid Awareness Week. Folic Acid is an important B vitamin that is used everytime your body makes new cells. Enough folic acid may help give you healthier hair, nails, and skin, support heart health, and aid against depression. It’s especially important for growing teens and women who might become pregnant. Go Folic! is celebrating FA Awareness Week by spreading the word at San Francisco Farmers Markets. This Saturday, we will be at the Alemany Farmers Market and the Fillmore Farmers Market from 9am-noon.
