Folic Acid Awareness Week – Happy New Year from Go Folic!


   

Need a New Year’s Resolution that’s easy to keep?

Make sure to get at least 400mcg of folic acid every day!

It’s easy to do:

  • Take a multivitamin every day with the recommended dose of folic acid, or…
  • Increase the amount of folate your diet by eating enriched cereals and grains, or lots of leafy greens.

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. 

Start 2011 off on the right folic-foot.  Come by to get a free supply of multivitamins with folic acid!
