Blackmores Folate 500mcg provides a daily dose of
500mcg of folic acid which if taken daily for one month before
conception and during pregnancy, may reduce the risk of
women having a child with birth defects of the brain and/or
spinal cord, such as spina bifida or anencephaly. Folic Acid can
also assist in maintaining normal blood.
Foetal formation increases the mother's need for folic acid and
deficiency is common during pregnancy. Supplementation of
folic acid is recommended for at least one month prior to
conception and for the duration of the pregnancy, and may
reduce the incidence of neural tube defects in the unborn child.
Deficiency of folic acid is common in the general population,
resulting from prolonged stress, chronic alcoholism, viral
infection and liver disease. When folic acid is lacking, red blood
cells become enlarged and oxygen carrying capacity is reduced,
resulting in symptoms of breathlessness, headache, pallor,
muscle fatigue and exhaustion. Additionally, deficiency of folic
acid (along with vitamin B6), is associated with elevated plasma
levels of homocysteine.
