Folic Acid is one of the lesser known vitamins but which is vital for every day mental health, intestinal health and pregnancy.

NRF FolaVite helps to boost the lack of Folic Acid in diets with each tablet containing 800 mcg of Folic Acid and 25 mcg of VitaminB12.   When taken in large doses, Folic Acid can minimize the absorption of Vitamin B12 which is an important vitamin the body requires for the mental and physical maintenance of the body.

Folic Acid deficiency can be caused by poor eating habits, the increased vitamin requirement necessary during pregnancy, whilst taking certain medications or when one is suffering from certain illnesses.  A lack of Folic Acid in the body can result in poor growth, a painful tongue, stomach and intestinal problems and a lack of appetite.  Folic Acid is also helpful with the prevention of heart disease, anaemia, strokes and certain forms of cancer.  It helps greatly with memory problems so taking it regularly, may even lessen the chances of developing dementia.

Folic Acid is significantly involved in the production of new cells and the maintenance of existing cells making it therefore an important vitamin to be taken during pregnancy.  It is the key Vitamin for proper foetal development and it may help to reduce the risk of spine deformation, suboptimal brain development and other foetal development problems.  

Many foods, notably bread, cereal and other staples are routinely fortified with Folic Acid which has a very low toxicity level, even at very high dosage.

NRF FolaVite tablets are pleasant tasting and absorbed easily when dissolved under the tongue.  All NRF Health supplements are manufactured from pure and certified raw materials with optimally balanced quantities of ingredients and NRF FolaVite tablets are gluten free, yeast free and do not contain colorants or preservatives.

*Always consult your health care practitioner before taking any products if you are pregnant or lactating.
