Treatment for Folic Acid Deficiency Anemia: What You Should
Folic acid, one of the B vitamins, is important for health and well-being, especially
for women who are pregnant or planning to get pregnant. In the past, not having
enough folic acid often led to folic acid or folate deficiency anemia, one of many dietrelated types of anemia. Today, however, it is highly unlikely that anyone could
become anemic from this deficiency.
For the small number of people who have folic acid deficiency, a change in diet is
usually the answer. Folic acid is very easily absorbed from food, so even people who
have chronic health conditions that make it hard for them to absorb many nutrients
will probably get enough folic acid this way.
Foods to eat to get your folic acid requirements include: Leafy greens, such as
spinach or romaine lettuce, Broccoli, Asparagus, Oranges or orange juice, Sprouts,
Barley, Lentils, Beans, Peanuts, Soybeans, Wheat germ, Fortified breakfast cereals,
Fortified or enriched bread, pasta, or other grain products.
