Lamberts Folic Acid 400mcg (100 tablets) Information

Small easy-to-swallow tablets

Folic acid is especially important in foetal development with the Department of Health advising that all women planning a pregnancy should take a supplement of 400µg daily from the start of trying to conceive until the 12th week of pregnancy. Yet, despite the importance of folic acid, a recent poll found that only 56 per cent of women aged 15-55 were aware of its benefits and that just 15 per cent took a supplement both when trying for a baby and during the pregnancy.

This nutrient is now also known to help heart health by its role in reducing homocysteine, a harmful chemical present in blood that is linked to heart disease. Indeed one team of researchers has estimated that increasing folic acid intake could reduce the risk of ischaemic heart disease by 16 per cent, deep vein thrombosis by 25 per cent, and stroke by 24 per cent. Still nine out of ten adults consume too little folic acid.

These small, easy to swallow, tablets are made in the UK to pharmaceutical GMP standards and deliver the level of folic acid recommended by the DoH.

Folic Acid is well known for the important role it plays in the health and development of an unborn baby. The Department of Health now recommends that all women planning a pregnancy as well as those during the first 3 months of pregnancy take a supplement of 400µg of Folic Acid daily. This is good advice as official data shows that 47% of women have dietary intakes below the RNI of 200µg per day.

More recently Folic acid has been in the news as it contributes to normal homocysteine metabolism which is a compound implicated in the build up of plaques within blood vessel walls. Folic acid is therefore an important nutrient in all adults’ diets, not just in pregnancy, which is one good reason to eat plenty of green leafy vegetables, a rich source of this important nutrient. Folic acid also contributes to the normal function of the immune system and to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
