Folate For Fertility & Pregnancy


A premium folate supplement to support both men and women during preconception and women during pregnancy.

The NHS recommends 400μg folic acid per day during preconception and pregnancy, to reduce the risk of neural tube defects in the developing foetus. 

While sometimes used interchangeably, folic acid and active folate are not the same. Folate is the more bioavailable form of folic acid. We use Quatrefolic® for our folate supplements, which is more readily absorbed by the body and we therefore recommend this over folic acid.

Folate can support ovarian function and embryo quality during preconception. During pregnancy, folate is recommended to reduce the risk of neural tube defects in the developing foetus. 

In men, folate contributes to the normal production and maintenance of sperm.

Who is it for?

The NHS recommends taking a folic acid supplement throughout fertility and pregnancy.

Research suggests that folate can positively affect ovarian function and may even improve the efficacy of fertility treatments like in vitro fertilization (IVF). Adequate folate levels have also been linked to improved embryo quality, which is a key factor for successful implantation and a healthy pregnancy.

During pregnancy, the body also needs to produce extra blood and tissue for the growing foetus. Folate is essential for this process, aiding in the division and growth of cells. Proper levels of Folate help the body effectively absorb nutrients, which is increasingly important during pregnancy when nutritional needs are higher.

In men, folate contributes to the normal production and maintenance of sperm. Folate also plays a role in the creation and repair of DNA. Therefore, it contributes to the genetic quality of the sperm, which is crucial for a healthy pregnancy and baby.

Take one capsule per day or as directed by your healthcare professional

"Folate may improve egg quality, maturation and implantation. There is evidence of association between paternal folate status and sperm quality, fertility, congenital malformations and placental weight.”

- Isabelle Obert (Fertility Nutritionist)
