Folic acid is a nutrient required for the production of normal blood cells. Without folic acid, cells do not divide properly and so it is critical to the development of the nervous system of the unborn baby.
Folic acid may reduce the incidence of neural tube defects in the unborn child. Folic acid may reduce the risk of women having a child with birth defects of the brain and/or spinal cord, such as spina bifida.
Precautions / Contra-indications
Folic Acid may mask a Vitamin B12 deficiency. Please consult your healthcare professional.

Conception, take one tablet daily with food or as

have previously had a baby with neural tube defects/
spina bifida consult a health professional.
