Summary

Folate plays an important role in the synthesis of purine & pyrimidines in the body and is important for the maturation of erythrocytes. It is widely available from plants and to a lesser extent organ meats, but more than half the folate content of food is lost during cooking. Folate deficiency is commonly prevalent in alcoholic liver disease, pregnancy and the elderly. It may result from poor intestinal absorption, nutrition deficiency, excessive demand as in pregnancy or in malignancy and in response to certain drugs like Methotrexate & anticonvulsants.
