Blackmores Folate is a rich source of folic acid. Taken daily for one month before conception and during pregnancy, Blackmores Folate may reduce the risk of birth defects of the brain and/or the spinal cord.
Folate (folic acid) plays a critical role in cellular division and DNA and RNA synthesis. Cells need adequate folic acid in order to divide properly. The development and growth of a foetus can put increased demands in the mother for folate, since cell division is constantly happening.
Supplementing folate for at least one month prior to conception and during pregnancy is highly recommended and may reduce the risk of neural tube defects in your unborn child.
Consider taking Blackmores Conceive Well Gold if you are trying to conceive: it is especially formulated for pre-conception care and supplies nutrients that are needed in preparation for conception and pregnancy (including iodine and folic acid).
Once pregnant consider changing to Blackmores Pregnancy and Breast-Feeding Gold. This is a premium, comprehensive formulation which contains vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids beneficial for both mother and baby.
