Supplemental folic acid intake increases maternal folate status. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects in the developing foetus. In order to prevent defects of the neural tube, an additional daily intake of 400 µg folic acid over a time period of at least one month before and up to 3 months after conception is recommended.
In the body, folic acid is converted into the bioactive folate form in several steps. However, some women cannot completely convert folic acid into the needed folate form. Thus, Cefavit® natal contains a combination of folic acid and the calcium compound of the folate which is active in the body.
