Folimec AH Tablet contains Folic acid, Vitamin B12 and DHA.
Folic acid is used for dietary management of low blood cell folate level in certain patients. Folic Acid is proven to reduce the risk of neural tube defects (NTDs) and birth defects such as spina bifida and anencephaly by as much as 70 percent if taken at least 1 month before pregnancy. Significant reduction in the amount of folate made available to the body limits the ability to build and maintain healthy reserves of folic acid and significantly increases the risk of birth defects. Folic acid and vitamin B12 is also proven to lower levels of homocysteine - an amino acid linked to cardiovascular disease and more importantly, pregnancy complications. Such pregnancy complications include: preeclampsia, low birth weight, miscarriage, recurrent pregnancy loss and placental abruption. DHA is a vital ingredient in brain and retinal tissue, so it's essential for proper brain growth and eye development in fetus and young babies.
