|Folic Acid is the parent compound of a large group of naturally occurring, structurally related compounds collectively known as the folates. It is also sometimes referred to as Vitamin B9.
The department of health advises that a supplement of 400µg folic acid should be taken by all women planning a pregnancy, up to the 12th week of pregnancy. It is important for healthy nervous system and RNA/DNA development in unborn babies.
Folic Acid can become depleted in those who smoke, drink lots of alcohol or who are stressed.
