One-day-dose of folic acid and iodine for preconception and pregnancy

Blackmores I-Folic™ is a combination of iodine and folic acid, both important preconception & pregnancy nutrients.

Why use

Optimises folic acid and iodine levels

Provides iodine to promote the development of baby's brain, eyesight & hearing

Provides a daily dose of 500 µg of folic acid that may reduce the risk of birth defects of the brain &/or spinal cord such as spina bifida if taken daily for 1 month prior to conception and during pregnancy

Iodine is important for a baby’s brain development


The Blackmores difference
Blackmores I-Folic™ is a convenient one-a-day dose of folic acid and iodine, in a small, easy to swallow tablet.

One bottle will provide you with a 5 month supply of these two essential nutrients.

If you are trying to conceive, consider taking Blackmores Conceive Well™Gold which is formulated for preconception care. It supplies nutrients that are important to support normal conception and pregnancy, including iodine and folic acid.

Once pregnant consider changing to Blackmores Pregnancy & Breast-Feeding Gold. This is a premium, comprehensive formulation which contains vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids beneficial for both mother and baby.

Active Ingredients:


Potassium iodide (iodine 150 µg) 196.2 µg
Iodine is an essential trace element and is an integral part of the thyroid hormone, thyroxine, required for normal growth and metabolism.

An adequate intake of iodine is particularly important for pregnant and breastfeeding women when infants are entirely dependent on their mother's intake of iodine for normal growth and brain development.

Foods containing iodine include seawater fish, shellfish, seaweeds and iodised salt.


Folic acid 500 µg
A water-soluble B group vitamin, folate is involved in the synthesis of DNA and RNA and the activation of vitamin B12 into it's active form.

Folic acid is found in fresh green leafy vegetables, broccoli, mushrooms, legumes, nuts and fortified cereals.

Dosage

Adults – Take 1 tablet a day with a meal, or as professionally prescribed

Contraindications and cautions
Do not exceed the stated dose of folic acid except on medical advice. If you have had a baby with a neural tube defect/spina bifida seek specific medical advice.

Not to be taken with Blackmores Conceive Well Gold, Blackmores Pregnancy & Breast-Feeding Gold, Blackmores Folate, or other folic acid containing supplements

Consult your healthcare professional before use if suffering from a thyroid condition
