HOW FOLIC ACID WORKS

Our Folic acid contains the right amount of 400 mcg folic acid, as recommended by US Food and Nutrition Board and USRDA, for women who are planning to get pregnant.

WHAT THE RESEARCH SAYS

Folic acid helps to reduce the risk of NTD in new-borns, which affects the foetus’ brain and spinal cord[1]. It is important to consume folic acid 3 months prior to conception[2,3].
