Folic acid is the synthetic form of folate, a B vitamin that can be found naturally in certain plant foods 

Cell reproduction is among folate’s most important duties. Folate is necessary for making the nucleic acids DNA and RNA and, as such, folate helps to produce and maintain cells, a role that is critical during times of rapid growth, such as pregnancy and infancy. This also explains why folate/folic acid is so important in maintaining normal brain function. 

Folic acid is necessary during pregnancy to help prevent certain birth defects. Folic acid is a nutrient needed for women in their childbearing years who are capable of becoming pregnant.

That being said, in everyone, folate helps to produce healthy red blood cells capable of transporting oxygen to each and every cell.
