The choice of extra folic acid may be appropriate for those wishing to maintain a healthy heart and arteries and an active mind through the years. Folic acid is important in helping maintain low homocysteine levels and is especially important before and during pregnancy. The British Government's Chief Medical Officers advise that all women planning a pregnancy should take a 400µg folic acid supplement daily, from the start of trying to conceive to until at least the 12th week of pregnancy. It is also important for supporting an active brain, essential for growth and red blood cell development. Best taken with Vitamin B12 or a multi-vitamin.
