Folic acid is recommended for normal foetal growth in pregnancy. It should be taken at least six months before pregnancy begins and continued throughout the pregnancy.
Folic acid is needed by the body to make nucleic acids – the genetic material of cells – and so is required for the processes of cell division, growth and reproduction. It is also vital for the formation of red blood cells by the bone marrow and for the development and proper function of the central nervous system.
Designed for women of child-bearing age, this product provides 400µg Folic Acid daily.
Supplemental Folic Acid intake increases maternal folate status. Low maternal folate
status is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects in the developing baby*.
Folic Acid also plays a role in cell division and also contributes to normal psychological
function and normal blood formation.
