A Note on Folic Acid & Pregnancy Multivitamin Formulas:The NZ Ministry of Health (MOH) restricts the amount of folic acid available in non-pharmacy nutritional supplements to 300mcg. Some sources, including the†MOH's own guidelines, indicate that a higher daily intake (e.g. 800mcg plus) of Folic Acid is more appropriate, especially in the early stages of pregnancy. We stock a range of quality, stand-alone†Folic Acid supplements.
