folic acid is not methylated
The folic acid in Nature's Own does not contain methylated folic acid so it is more difficult for the body to use it. Stress and other factors can inhibit the bodies ability to use folic acid. I would recommend using folic acid that specifies methylated folic acid is included.
this is a good value supplement. folic acid is essential for preventing spina bifida in babies. this is a good value way of ensuring that you get this level of folic acid in your day. Although it doesn't provide the other supplements that may benefit at the very least it is a good baseline and start to assisting you to have a healthy baby. I love that I can buy it at the supermarkey

no other vitamins or minerals provided. but jsut getting folic acid is better than not getting folic acid at all.
This tablet is small so can be easily swollowed by those like me who have trouble taking tablets. And better still, it can be dissolved very easily in water. Folic acid is recommended to be taken at least 1 month (or even 3 months) before planning pregnancy to prevent spina-bifida in newborns. There's 100 tablets in this brand, so it will last you at least 3.5 months. The only problem is that this only contains folic acid, so if you need to take other supplements such as iron and calcium, then you'll have to take these separately. Or alternatively, take a supplement which includes all these.
