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.
|Suggested Use:||Take 1-2 tablets a day, with meals. A daily multivitamin is also recommended. Do not exceed recommended daily intake, unless directed by a healthcare practitioner.|
|Caution:||This level of folic acid should only be taken for short periods, unless pregnant or planning pregnancy. It is advisable to consult your healthcare practitioner before taking this supplement. Individuals taking any prescription medications or who are under medical supervision should consult a doctor before taking any supplements. Keep out of reach of children.
