Description

What is Folic Acid? When your granny told you to eat your greens, she knew what she was talking about. Green leafy vegetables such as kale, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and spinach are high in folate, also known as folic acid or vitamin B9. It?s important for healthy cell formation, especially for red blood cells, which carry oxygen around our bodies. Because it?s water-soluble, we can?t store it, so if levels drop too low, you could be at risk of folate deficiency anaemia, when there aren?t enough healthy-functioning red blood cells to carry oxygen around your body. These tablets not only help you avoid folic acid deficiency, they also support immune health, psychological functions, and help reduce tiredness and fatigue. But for women who are planning a baby or in the early stages of pregnancy, this vital vitamin is doubly important, as it supports foetus development. Low levels of folate, the natural form of folic acid found in our bodies, is a risk factor for birth defects, such as spina bifida, in the unborn baby. Therefore, The Department of Health recommends that women take a folic acid 400?g supplement from at least one month before conception until the 12th week of pregnancy to prevent this. What makes Healthspan?s better? Healthspan have created a high strength formulation to safeguard your body levels and packed 400?g into one daily tablet. Who is this for? These vegan folic acid tablets are especially important for all women of child-bearing age or those in the early stages of pregnancy.
