Hi.Just wondering what's the original color of these folate tablets..because mine seems a bit yellow and got a few red spots on some of them..

Hello, I've been took folate for almost a month, and I found this product contain 90pills per bottle but the suggestion said took only a month before conception. What make me a bit confused is do I have to finish one bottle or just I took it 30days only?

Hi, it said that the Folate could not to be taken with Blackmores Conceive Well Gold and Blackmores Pregnancy & Breast-Feeding Gold. I'm wondering does it only because it will exceed the stated dose of folic acid for taking both tow?

Hi why can't you have this and the Blackmores folate? I'm currently taking just the folate but was wondering if there's anything I should be including in my preconception vitamins?

Dear Blackmores - like 30% of people I cannot absorb folic due to MTHFR SNPs genetic issues. Neither can my 2 kids. As a Blackmores' shareholder I am pretty disappointed that I need to order folinic and methylfolate from overseas suppliers. Is Blackmores working on this issue? It is a big issue as shown in scientific literature and clinical studies...

Do you have methylfolate or folinic acid? 1 out of 3 people are estimated to have genetic SNPs that prevent them from absorbing folic acid...the MTHFR mutation. I currently have to buy folinic and methylfolate from overseas. As a Blackmores shareholder and mother of 2 children also with this mutation I would really like to know when Blackmores will look into supplying this more bio-available form. Please?
