    Details

    Folic Acid Oral Spray is an essential B vitamin (B9) that is essential during conception and pregnancy but has many other health benefits.

    Scientifically formulated to deliver methylfolate, the most active form of folic acid, directly into the bloodstream, bypassing primary processing of the gut.

    The tiny droplets within the spray absorb quickly into the buccal membrane of the inner cheek, providing fast nutrient uptake.

    The dosage of this oral spray is customisable to support the recommended daily uptake of this essential pregnancy vitamin during conception, pregnancy and most importantly, the foetal development stages.

    For use during conception or pregnancy, use 4 sprays (400μg) daily. For regular use for adults, we recommend 2 sprays (200μg) daily.

    Importance of Folic Acid

    Folic Acid, or Folate is an essential vitamin during conception and pregnancy contributing to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy, helping reduce the risk of neural tube defects in the developing foetus.

    It also has several wider health benefits including contributing to normal blood formation, normal psychological function, the normal functioning of the immune system and even contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

    Folate also supports normal amino acid synthesis, making it great for athletes and body builders.

    Active Methylfolate - Quatrefolic®

    Traditional folic acid supplements and food folate are not biologically active and need to be converted via a multi-step process before they can be metabolised by the body. Our Folic Acid Oral Spray uses Quatrefolic® a form of methylfolate in its most active form so it can be utilised easily by the body.

  • FAQs
      How do vitamin oral sprays help with morning sickness?

      Most women will experience some form of morning sickness during pregnancy. It’s a completely natural part of the process but it can make it difficult to keep vitamins and supplements down. When taking traditional tablets, you rely on absorption directly through the gut. However, during bouts of morning sickness, you may end up expelling a lot of these nutrients before they are absorbed.

      By using an oral spray, the nutrients are quickly absorbed via the soft-tissue of the inner cheek, delivering the nutrients quickly into the rich vein system within the mouth, bypassing primary processing by the digestive system.

      Plus, they all have great-tasting, natural flavours!

      What is the difference between folic acid, folate and methylfolate?

      Folic Acid is a form for Folate (B9). Methlyfolate is the most active form of folate. It is naturally preferred by the body and does not need to be converted before it can be utilised.

      Is the Folic Acid Oral Spray suitable for those with special dietary requirements?

      Yes. It is completely vegan and officially approved by the Vegetarian Society. It is also suitable for those following a coeliac or diabetic diet, as well as those with digestive issues such as IBS.

      Are there any contraindications with folic acid?

      There are no interactions with any other products or medications when using our Folic Acid supplement.

      Do I need to take the spray with food or drink?

      No. The oral spray delivery mechanism avoids primary processing by the digestive system, meaning it can be taken at any time of day with or without food. The active ingredients are delivered directly into the bloodstream via the mucosal membranes in the mouth.

      What time of day should I use the spray?

      The spray can be taken at any time of day, the key is to make it part of your daily routine.

      Many people find it is easiest to take it first thing in the morning as part of their morning routine, but as the sprays are easy to use, portable and don’t need to be taken with food or drink, they can be used any time of day.
