PREGNANCY
1st TRIMESTER

Folate is probably the most important nutrient when it comes to pre-conception. It is most well-known for its role in preventing neural tube defects such as spina bifida, when trying to conceive and during the first trimester of pregnancy.

What is the difference between Perdays Preconception Activated Folate & B Vitamins and a conventional folic acid supplement?

Perdays Pre-conception Activated Folate & B-Vitamins is different to conventional folic acid supplements. It features Quatrefolic®, which is an active form of folate called 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (or 5-MTHF for short). This is important for people with a genetic difference in the enzyme that activates folic acid, known as MTHFR, to be able to properly utilise folate. Synthetic folic acid found in conventional prenatal vitamins requires a number of steps to be converted into 5-MTHF.

Perdays Pre-conception Activated Folate & B-Vitamins can help support adequate folate levels in those who require the active form of folate, 5-MTHF, in pre-conception and during pregnancy.

How should I take Perdays Pre-conception Activated Folate & B-Vitamins?

Take 1 tablet daily in the morning with or after food, or as directed by your healthcare professionals.

When should I start taking Perdays Preconception Activated Folate & B-Vitamins?

Perdays Preconception Activated Folate & B-Vitamins can be taken before, during and after pregnancy to prevent dietary folate deficiency. It is recommended to start taking a folate supplement 1-3 months before trying to conceive, to help ensure your levels are optimised before conception. You should continue folate supplementation throughout pregnancy where folate demands increase from 400 mcg per day to 600 mcg per day.

Already pregnant? Congratulations! It is recommended to start our Pregnancy Key Essentials & DHA that contains folate right away, it’s not too late to start nurturing you and your baby!

Whilst breastfeeding, folate demands remain elevated compared to pre-conception requirements, however lower than pregnancy demands at 500 mcg per day. Always advise your doctor of any medicine you take during pregnancy, particularly in your first trimester.

Can I take Perdays Preconception Actived Folate & B-Vitamins instead of a prenatal multi-vitamin like Perdays Key Essentials + DHA?

Great question! We designed our Activated Folate & B-Vitamins to be a simpler and easier to tolerate formula for those who experience significant nausea and gastric upset during pregnancy. Sometimes, even the most advanced formulas of prenatal multivitamins may be too difficult to stomach in the throes of morning sickness, nausea and even vomiting in the early stages of pregnancy.

Ideally, you would want to take the most comprehensive prenatal supplement, like our Perdays Key Essentials + DHA. If that’s not practical, due to pregnancy symptoms, switching to Perdays Pre-conception Activated Folate & B-Vitamins can be an option, to ensure you still meet your folate demands in pregnancy.”.

How do I switch from another folate vitamin to Perdays?

It’s always best to advise your healthcare professionals when taking pregnancy vitamins. If you need to stop taking the previous vitamin, you may start taking Perdays Preconception Activated Folate & B-Vitamins the next morning, 1 tablet per day, or as directed by your healthcare professionals.

Why does Perdays Pre-conception Activated Folate & B Vitamins contain other B-Vitamins?

Biologically, folate works best with a couple of friends, including B vitamins which is why we have included vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B6 (pyroxidine) and vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) which helps to maximise the absorption of folate.

I am a vegetarian or vegan, is Perdays Pre-conception Activated Folate & B-Vitamins suitable for me?

Yes, our pregnancy vitamins ingredients and capsules are vegetarian and vegan friendly. It contains 500 mcg of vitamin B12 to help support your requirements on a plant-based diet too. Always check with your healthcare professional for any medicine you take during pregnancy.

    These are perfect for women such as myself who struggle to swallow large pregnancy multivitamins. I have peace of mind knowing that my folate intake is where it needs to be prior to conceiving.

    Super small and easy to take. Haven’t noticed any weight gain like I have with other brands

    I bought this pre-natal folate after trying a couple of other pre-natal vitamins which made me really sick and had so many more ingredients. I decided to try this instead, as it is quite basic in comparison to other pre-natals, and I hoped I would be able to tolerate it.
    It didn’t make me sick, and I love that it has very little ingredients, and the tablet is tiny compared to other pre-natals probably because there are few ingredients.
    So easy to take! Thank you Perdays 🙂

    I’m so happy I found this product! While going through my IVF treatment, I got tested for my Folinic Acid Absorption, and they discovered that my body wasn’t absorbing it properly. So I needed to take folinic acid instead. I showed this product to my specialist, and she gave me the green light, I am very glad, I’ve been taking it for 3 weeks and feeling great!
