A growing baby will take all the supplies it needs from its mother, often leaving her desperately short of vital nutrients. This is why BioCare FolGuard Capsules also contain the additional aforementioned vitamin, B12. Vitamin B12 is particularly important for pregnant women because it contributes to normal homocysteine & energy-yielding metabolism, red blood cell formation, to the normal functions of the immune & nervous systems, and to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
