Folate is essential for the healthy growth and development of your baby as it reduces the risk of brain and spinal cord birth defects.

It is best taken one month before conception and throughout the pregnancy, as many women planning pregnancy may not obtain adequate levels of folic acid in their diet.

Folate is an umbrella term used to describe all forms of vitamin B9, including folic acid.

The terms folate and folic acid are often used interchangeably. However, despite both being forms of vitamin B9, the two compounds are quite different.

Folate is the natural form of vitamin B9 that is found in whole foods such as dark leafy greens, citrus and beans. Folic acid is a synthetic (man-made) form of folate commonly found in fortified foods and supplements. Interestingly you would have to eat four cups of cooked green beans a day to get 300mg of folate.
