The timing of folic acid supplement usage is critical to preventing pregnancies affected by neural tube defects (NTDs) because the neural tube closes by Day 28 post-conception. We investigated compliance of pregnant women with current folic acid recommendations (400 µg/day from preconception to 12 weeks) in relation to achieving a folate status associated with lowest risk of NTDs.
