Why Take Folic Acid 400mcg? Folic Acid, also known as Vitamin B9, is an essential part of the diet for both women and men. Most recognisably it promotes the growth of healthy maternal tissue during pregnancy and lowers the risk of birth defects. However, folic acid also offers many other health benefits. It is thought that folic acid can support the performance of neurotransmitters that carry messages to and from the brain, which helps to maintain normal psychological functioning. It can also help to reduce symptoms of tiredness and fatigue.  A Key Vitamin During Pregnancy Several vitamins are crucial during pregnancy, one of which is folic acid. The Department of Health advises all women who are trying to conceive to take a daily 400µg folic acid supplement. This essential B vitamin is required for the formation of DNA and the development of the neural tube into the brain and spinal cord. Without sufficient levels of folic acid, the foetus may not develop fully and birth defects such as spina bifida can occur. The beneficial effect in relation to this action is obtained with a supplemental daily folic acid intake of 400μg for at least one month before and up to three months after conception.  The above health claims have been authorised by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).  UK Made and Quality Assured Our folic acid tablets are manufactured in the UK by our supplier to meet the strict standards of quality and regulations outlined by the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).
