According to the NHS:
“Adults need 200mcg of folic acid a day. It can't be stored in the body, so you need it in your diet every day. But if you're pregnant or trying for a baby, it's recommended that you take 400mcg folic acid supplement daily from the time you stop using contraceptives until you're 12 weeks pregnant. This is to help prevent birth defects, such as spina bifida, in your baby. Make sure you speak to your doctor if you have a family history of conditions like Spina Bifida (known as neural tube defects) as you may need to take a higher dose of 5mg of folic acid each day until you're 12 weeks pregnant.”
But Folic Acid offers far more than support to those looking to conceive; it's an important vitamin for men and women of all ages.
The following claims are approved by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA):
Folic Acid contributes to normal psychological function and to the normal function of the immune system - Helps the body create amino acids - Contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue - Has a role in the process of cell division.
