Description

Folic Acid is essential for the healthy growth and development of your baby. Reduces the risk of brain and spinal cord birth defects.

It is best taken one month before conception and throughout the pregnancy as many woman planning pregnancy may not obtain adequate levels of folic acid in their diet. It may take approx 4 cups of cooked green beans each day to obtain the equivalent 300ug of folic acid through diet alone.
