Folic Acid 1 mg
Natural Factors Folic Acid delivers 1 mg of folate per tablet, and is more bioavailable in supplemental form than from food. Folate plays an important role in the prevention of neural tube defects when taken prior to conception and during early pregnancy. It helps in the production of red blood cells and factors in the maintenance of good health.
Each tablet contains:
Folic acid (folate) .................................1 mg
Calcium phosphate, micro- crystalline cellulose, vegetable grade magnesium stearate (lubricant).
1 tablet daily or as directed by a health care practitioner. Keep out of the reach of children.
- Estrogens, alcohol, various chemotherapy drugs (especially methotrexate), sulfasalazine (used in the treatment of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis), barbiturates, and anticonvulsant drugs all interfere with folic acid absorption or function.
- Oral pancreatic extracts may reduce folic acid absorption, so they should be administered away from folate supplementation.
Children: Suitable for children at the adult dosage.
Pregnancy and Nursing: The importance of folic acid supplementation (400 to 1,000 mcg) during pregnancy cannot be overstated.
Seniors: No special precautions are known.
Take 1 Tablet Once Per Day
