+ Beans

+ Lettuce
+ Asparagus

The chemical structure of Folic Acid

Vitamin B9 is essential for human growth and development, encourages normal nerve and proper brain functioning, and may help reduce blood-levels of the amino acid homocysteine (elevated homocysteine levels have been implicated in increased risk of heart disease and stroke). Folic acid or folate may also help protect against cancers of the lung, colon, and cervix, and may help slow memory decline associated with aging.

Creative Diagnostics provide a series of Vitamin B9 antibodies and conjugates for new detection method development.
