Every woman planning to get pregnant should take 400 micrograms (400 mcg or 0.4 mg) of folic acid daily.
Folic acid is a form of the B vitamin that aids in the regular cellular development and regeneration, and is especially crucial within the first weeks of your unborn baby’s development. It helps to ensure proper formation of the brain and spinal cord. Without folic acid, there is a higher chance of miscarriage, and a 1 in 1000 chance that the child will end up with a Neural Tube Disorder (NTD).
Before and during pregnancy. Start using Folavit 4 weeks before conception and keep this up to 8 weeks after conception.
1 tablet daily with plenty of water, preferably during meals. Folavit is not suitable for children up to the age of 1 year.
On 14/12/2012, a new European law has been introduced concerning health claims. This law prohibits manufacturers of food and nutritional supplements to mention health claims which aren't scientifically proven on the packaging of their products.
All the products that don't meet the new claim-legislation must be taken off the market. Websites and information sheets for consumers must also meet the new legislation. That's the reason why you will find less information about the functioning of certain nutritional supplements on our website.
