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.

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.
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.

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!

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.
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.
Formulated to provide optimum nutritional delivery, each spray provides the active ingredient in micro-sized droplets that permeate the soft-tissue of the inner cheek, delivering the essential nutrients into the rich vein system below. This allows the formulation to quickly enter the bloodstream for optimal absorption.
