Thanks for using the HCM. I am happy to address your questions, Emfolic DHA contains folic Acid (Vit B9)-5 mg , DHA (Decosahexanoic Acid)-200 mg, and supplementation with the omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) during pregnancy could boost the problem solving abilities of the children, as per research. Many studies have shown that women who get 400 micrograms (0.4 milligrams) of folic acid daily prior to conception and during early pregnancy reduce the risk that their baby will be born with a serious neural tube defect (a birth defect involving incomplete development of the brain and spinal cord) by up to 70%. That's why it's so important for all women of childbearing age to get enough folic acid and not just those who are planning to become pregnant. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks
