Taking 1mg or less a day of folic acid supplements is unlikely to cause any harm, says the health body.

According to the NHS, most people should be able to get the amount of folate they need by eating a varied and balanced diet.

But if you’re pregnant, trying for a baby, or could get pregnant, it’s recommended that you take a 400 microgram folic acid supplement daily until you’re 12 weeks pregnant, notes the health body.

Folate is found in small amounts in many foods.
