Folate is considered to be a golden nutrient of pregnancy, though, it’s not everyone knows about its importance and how to provide the nutrient for the body rightly. The followings are 5 important things about folate that future mothers need to take notice of.

1.     Reducing 50-70% the risk of neural tube defect

Folate (vitamin B9) plays an important part in producing blood cells and the direct effects on neural tube developments of fetuses. According to The American Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), women who are well-provided with Folate before and during pregnancy will have 50-70% the risk of fetal neural tube defect decreased. Neural tube defect is a defect that happens in the incomplete neural tube, which leads to abnormal brain and spinal cord developments. Besides, to pregnant women, Folate helps prevent the risk of anemia, premature birth, hemorrhage during labor and reduce casualties in pregnancy like pre-eclampsia…

2.     Many women at reproductive age are lacking in Folate

According to National Institute of Nutrition that is in co-operation with the research team of Prof. Dr. Tim Green from Otago University (New Zealand), there’re many women at reproductive age have the level of Folate in blood under 905nmol/L which is the lowest standard which prevent them from the risk of neural tube defects.

Folate is a substance that is important to fetal formation and mental development in the first stage of pregnancy. If you start adding Folate when discovering that you’re pregnant, which means you’re in the 3rd-4th week, you’ll have missed the most essential period of time. Therefore, women should daily provide 400mcg for your body in about 24 weeks before getting pregnant. It’s also necessary to add Folate continuously in pregnancy (600 mcg a day) and the breastfeeding period (500 mg a day).

4.     The daily diet doesn’t provide the essential amount of Folate

Adding Folate can be done by increasing eating foods that are rich in Folate, such as red meats, egg york, beans (cowpea, green bean, soy bean, peas...), dark-green vegetables (spinach, convolvulus, broccoli…), citrus fruits such as orange, lemon, cumquat, grapefruit... However, Folate is a vitamin that is very soluble in water and hardly preserved during food processing so the daily diet can’t provide enough the essential amount of Folate for the body.          

5.     Optimizing the process of adding Folate

Women who are about to have a baby or already pregnant are often recommended to add Folate by eating natural foods and using Folate supplement such as pregnant drugs or formula. Additionally, to optimize the ability of absorbing Folate and other necessary nutrients, pregnant women also need to have foods that provide Probiotics – a good bacterium for digestion and better absorption.
