Folic Acid is a simple formulation offering an extract of lemons standardised to guarantee a fixed amount of folic acid in every capsule. 385 lemons are used to produce one kilogram of the lemon extract providing the folic acid. Folic acid (folate) contributes to a reduction in tiredness and fatigue, the normal function of the immune system, normal psychological function, and the processes of normal homocysteine metabolism, amino acid synthesis, cell division and blood formation.
Folic acid is a water-soluble B Vitamin and member of the B Complex. Folic acid intake is important for pregnant women and helps promote heart health. Folic acid helps maintain healthy levels of homocysteine by helping convert homocysteine into methionine. In addition, it plays a significant role in the health of red blood cells, and helps support a healthy nervous system.
Supplemental folic acid intake increases maternal folate status. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects in the developing foetus. The beneficial effect is obtained with a supplemental folic acid daily intake of 400ug for at least one month before and up to three months after conception.
The lemons are grown on organic farms ensuring that the fruit is uncontaminated with pesticides or other chemical sprays. The organic status is fully certified from the seed to the final ingredient by the Soil Association, the world’s gold standard of organic certification. The accuracy of the folic acid content is meticulously checked in analytical and microbiological laboratories ensuring its safety and reliability for use in food supplements.
As a food supplement, take one to two capsules daily with food, or as directed by your healthcare professional.
