When it comes to restoring the immune system and supporting cardiac and vascular health; folic acid (or B9 vitamin) proves to be far more effective than any other vitamin. It supports all organs and systems, promotes normal growth of hair, and makes skin supple and beautiful.
Folic acid will supply your body with the necessary amount of this key vitamin and will help prevent vitamin B9 deficiency.
The Department of Health recommends that women should take a daily supplement of 400 micrograms of folic acid while they are trying to conceive, and should continue taking this dose for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, when the baby’s spine is developing. However, it is safe to continue taking folic acid supplements after 12 weeks.
