Pregnant women have an increased need for folate. A sufficient supply of the essential vitamin ensures that the baby develops normally during pregnancy. However, many women cannot completely absorb synthetically produced folate (folic acid) in their bodies. In contrast, natural folate can be better utilised by the body.

What is folate?
Folic acid plays an important role in all growth and development processes in our body. It helps in the production and repair of our genetic material (the DNA). All rapidly dividing cells therefore have a special need for folic acid. These include cells of the mucous membranes (e.g. intestinal mucosa) and bone marrow as well as all cells of a newly developing organism, such as a baby.The name folate is derived from the Latin word folium = the leaf. Leafy vegetables and green vegetables have a very high content of folate. Whole grain products, pulses, nuts, potatoes, oranges and eggs are also good sources of folate.
Folate for pregnancy and brest feeding
During pregnancy and lactation our need for folic acid increases, because a lot of cell division takes place during the formation of the organs, development of the body and washing of the embryo/baby. In order for this to function properly, we need more folic acid.
An adequate folate supply is therefore particularly important in the first trimester (the first three months of pregnancy). However, due to its effect on homocysteine metabolism, an adequate folate supply is recommended throughout the entire pregnancy.

Folate vs. Folic acid
Folate is a water-soluble vitamin that the body cannot produce itself. We are therefore dependent on a sufficient and regular supply. Folate is the natural vitamin found in plants and other foods. Leafy vegetables, whole grain products and nuts are good natural sources of folate.In contrast, folic acid is the synthetically produced form of the vitamin.
