Folic acid

Folic acid


It is especially important in aiding rapid cell division and growth, such as in infancy and pregnancy. Children and adults both require folate to produce healthy red blood cells and prevent anemia.

In the 1950s and 1960s, scientists began to discover the biochemical mechanisms of action for folate. In 1960, experts first linked folate deficiency to neural tube defects. In the late 1990s, US scientists realized, despite the availability of folate in foods, there was still a challenge for people to meet their daily folate requirements.

Adequate folate intake during the preconception period (which is the time right before and just after a woman becomes pregnant) helps protect against a number of congenital malformations, including neural tube defects (which are the most notable birth defects that occur from folate deficiency). Neural tube defects are severe abnormalities of the central nervous system that develop in embryos during the first few weeks of pregnancy resulting in malformations of the spine, skull, and brain; the most common neural tube defects are spina bifida and anencephaly.

In order to prevent the folate deficiency we present you the most bioavailable form of biologically active folate: Quatrefolic, available only in Femosun.

Femosun also contains: Folic Acid, Vitamins B(1,2,3,5,6,7,12), Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Iodine, Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and a special form of Iron.

Use Femosun during pregnancy to decrease the risk of baby malformations with just 1 capsule per day
