Product Info

Active Folic provides Folic Acid in its natural folate form to support greater absorption.

400µg of Folic Acid is recommended one month prior to conception and for the first 12 weeks to increase maternal folate status. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects (NTD) in the developing foetus.

Folic Acid is the most common form of folate supplement. However, increasing evidence suggests that reduced folate (methyl folate) is a better option. This is a result of the inability of up to 67% of the world’s population* to be able to effectively convert Folic Acid from food or supplements into a form that is usable in the body.


Supplemental folic acid intake of 400µg for at least one more before and up to 3 months after conception, can help reduce the risk of neural tube defects in a developing foetus.

Folate contributes to:

  • Maternal tissue growth during pregnancy
  • Normal blood formation
  • Normal function of the immune system
  • The reduction of tiredness and fatigue
How To Use

Adults, pregnant women, and children over 12 years: Take one Active Folic capsule daily (or two capsules per day if advised by your Healthcare Professional).

Take with water. Do not exceed the daily dose without consulting your Doctor or Pharmacist.
