Re 330 Folic acid

Hi

Regarding anon' s que, I was wondering the same thing. I have bought folic acid 5mg. Would it be sufficient to take these by themselves? Do I need to buy B12 or B vitamins as well or anything else? and how many do I need to take each day?

How many months before can I start taking them before I fall pregnant?

Astro,

The little yellow 5mg folic acid are ideal, but you should preferably combine them them with pregnancy/prenatal vitamin like Filibon, etc. You can start taking them as soon as you are planning to have a(nother) little one.
