Studies have shown how Folic Acid can help the body to produce healthy red blood cells, whilst supporting our body's immune system. Folic Acid is also often supplemented throughout pregnancy.

This B vitamin is normally found in a variety of food, including lentils, liver, broccoli and spinach. Taking 400µg of folic acid daily for at least one month before and 3 months after conception increases maternal folate status. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects in the developing foetus. Folic Acid also has many additional benefits including supporting normal blood formation,

function of the immune system, reduction of tiredness and fatigue and may support cell division.

The 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 until the 12th week of pregnancy.

Folic acid is important during pregnancy because levels fall in the mother due to increased red blood cell production in the early stages of pregnancy.
