To help prevent Spina Bifida and other Neural Tube Defects.

The development of the neural tube is one of the critical early stages in the development of a baby in a mothers womb. It is at this stage that defects such as spina bifida can occur. It has been shown that a supplement of folic acid taken during this critical period, can help protect the baby and ensure the correct development of the neural tube.

Single vitamins Folic Acid and Vitamin D have been shown to be more effective than multivitamins during pregnancy*.
