Product Information

Folic Acid is well known for the important role it plays in the health and development of an unborn baby. The Department of Health now recommends that all women planning a pregnancy as well as those during the first 3 months of pregnancy take a supplement of 400µg of Folic Acid daily. This is good advice as official data shows that 47% of women have dietary intakes below the NRV level (Nutrient Reference Value) of 200µg per day.

More recently folic acid has been in the news as it contributes to normal homocysteine metabolism which is a compound implicated in the build up of plaques within blood vessel walls. Folic acid is therefore an important nutrient in all adults’ diets, not just in pregnancy, which is one good reason to eat plenty of green leafy vegetables, a rich source of this important nutrient. All our multis contain folic acid, and the ones listed below have 400µg, (Multimax® Advance has 200µg).
Daily Intake
Take 1 tablet daily with a meal. Do not exceed recommended daily dose.
Food supplements should not replace a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
The Department of Health recommends that all women planning a pregnancy as well as those women during the first 3 months of pregnancy, take 400µg of Folic Acid daily.

"No obvious change in my well being since taking it - a number of years"

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

We would normally suggest trying a supplement for three months before reassessing. However, we can appreciate that if you are taking a supplement for preventing a condition or for general support, it may be more difficult for you to assess the benefits of the product.

"Taking this with B12 to aid better sleep."
By Sylvia Mallion , 15 Jun 2020
Verified Purchase
Bought this to take alongside vit b12. Partly because I''ve been a vegetarian for most of my life and I''m almost 66, partly due to my age and the fact I rarely get any sleep. Always been a poor sleeper but research showed me the two together could possibly aid better sleep. Can''t say I''m getting a full 8,6 or even a solid 4 but I''m falling asleep most of the time a lot faster than before and I am sleeping better and for a good bit longer. It''s not a miracle cure but within 48hrs I noted I was sleeping better,didn''t jump to conclusions but waited a full four weeks. After that time I could truthfully say,it''s got to be the folic acid and bit b12 together that are helping.

Planning to get pregnant sometime soon, and I''ve heard it''s good to start taking folic acid at least a couple of months before or while trying getting pregnant.
