Folic Acid 950mcg
The B vitamin Folic Acid is an important vitamin for everyone. Folic acid works with Vitamin B12 to form healthy red blood cells. Not having enough Folic Acid can cause you to have a type of anaemia (different from the common type which is a lack of iron).
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 foetus. The beneficial effect is obtained with a supplemental folic acid daily for at least one month before and up to three months after conception for women of child bearing age.
