Folate is found in dark green leafy vegetables, beans, peas, and nuts. Fruits rich in folate include oranges, lemons, bananas, melons, and strawberries. The synthetic form of folate is folic acid. It is in an essential component of prenatal vitamins and is in many fortified foods such as cereals and pastas.
Folate deficiency can occur when your diet lacks rich foods in folate or folic acid and also in people who have celiac disease. A deficiency in folate can lead to higher levels of homocysteine, neurological diseases, and mood disorders. This water-soluble B-complex vitamin is essential for the maintenance of cellular functions and health.
It is recommended that adults consume 400 micrograms a day. Pregnant women should get 400 to 1,000 mcg of folic acid a day, for one month prior to conception and for the initial 12 weeks.
Birth Defect Prevention
Taking a folic acid supplement before pregnancy and continuing it during pregnancy reduces the risk of some birth defects. Since the body does not naturally absorb folate found in foods as easily as supplements of folic acid, experts recommend this supplement before and during pregnancy.
Better Mood Overall
A deficiency in folate has been linked to increased risk of depression, and studies show that a supplement could help treat low moods.
A Healthy Heart
Folic acid supplements have been proven to lower homocysteine levels, which are connected with cardiovascular disease. That being said folate could lower the risk of stroke.
Benefits for Women
If you do not have enough folate, your body cannot make enough red blood cells, therefore it doesn't work as well. Women with periods are replacing red blood cells more frequently than other groups. For this group of women folate and iron are important to take daily which might be difficult to achieve through just food.
This B-complex vitamin is essential for maintaining cellular function and good health.
Some people by nature have a higher chance of folate deficiency due to a lack in their metabolism. Our supplement provides the active form of folate, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, which is naturally present in the body.
