BetterYou Folic Acid Oral Spray is a great-tasting, highly bioavailable, active form of folate. Folic acid has several health benefits and is an essential vitamin for pregnancy.
Ideal for those suffering from morning sickness or struggling to take traditional folate supplements.
Scientifically formulated to deliver methylfolate, the most active form of folic acid, directly into the bloodstream, bypassing primary processing of the gut.
The tiny droplets within the spray absorb quickly into the buccal membrane of the inner cheek, providing fast nutrient uptake.
The dosage of this oral spray is customisable to support the recommended daily uptake of this essential pregnancy vitamin during conception, pregnancy and most importantly, the foetal development stages.
For use during conception or pregnancy, use 4 sprays (400μg) daily. For regular use for adults, we recommend 2 sprays (200μg) daily.
Importance of Folic Acid:
Folic Acid, or Folate is an essential vitamin during conception and pregnancy contributing to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy, helping reduce the risk of neural tube defects in the developing foetus.
It also has several wider health benefits including contributing to normal blood formation, normal psychological function, the normal functioning of the immune system and even contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Folate also supports normal amino acid synthesis, making it great for athletes and body builders.
Active Methylfolate - Quatrefolic®:
Traditional folic acid supplements and food folate are not biologically active and need to be converted via a multi-step process before they can be metabolised by the body. Our Folic Acid Oral Spray uses Quatrefolic® a form of methylfolate in its most active form so it can be utilised easily by the body.
Water, diluent (xylitol), preservative (potassium sorbate), acidity regulator (citric acid), folic acid [as (6S)-5-methyltetrafolic acid, glucosamine salt (Quatrefolic®)], flavouring (natural blueberry).
Proudly British made. Never tested on animals.

Founded by Andrew Thomas in 2006, BetterYou was the first company in the world to develop a topically applied magnesium and nutritional oral spray and has been pioneering product development in this area ever since.
Our commitment to developmental science and absorption research has led us to partner with some of the finest research institutions in the world, including the universities of Cardiff, Ulster and Sheffield, St Mark’s Hospital in London and Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust.
With each new innovation, we continue to meet the growing needs of our customers’ nutritional requirements. Providing scientifically formulated products that use the highest quality ingredients and the most effective and convenient delivery methods possible.
As BetterYou continues to grow, our commitment and passion for developing exceptional natural health supplements remains unwavering, and a cornerstone of the BetterYou brand.
BetterYou specialises in the supplementation of those nutrients that have become underrepresented or simply omitted due to our modern diet and lifestyles.
Today we understand that traditional tablet and capsule supplementation relies upon a digestive process that has evolved exclusively for food intake, and absorption cannot be universally guaranteed. Add to this, the dramatic increase in digestive malabsorption issues such as IBS, Crohn’s and coeliac disease and an effective alternative delivery mechanism has become essential.
Each and every product is developed and formulated to overcome absorption challenges typically presented by traditional delivery methods.
BetterYou provides a range of nutritional supplements developed in conjunction with the Pharmacy and Pharmacology Research Team at Cardiff University, led by Dr. Charles Heard.
BetterYou products maximise nutrient delivery and subsequent uptake in the body, for greater benefit.
