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 bodybuilders.
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.
