What is the neural tube?
The neural tube is a tube in the embryo that develops into our central nervous system which includes the spine and the brain.
Folic acid and the neural tube
A well-known B vitamin, folic acid is the man-made form of folate.
It plays an important role in the synthesis, repair and stability of our genetic material and is crucial for our cells to be able to divide properly. It is this action that makes it is so vital during pregnancy, as it is necessary to support the rapid cell division that occurs during a foetus’ continuous growth.
Folic Acid 500mcg may help reduce the risk of a neural tube defect in your baby, when taken daily for one month before conception, and then during pregnancy.
A vital nutrient for all of us!
Folic acid has other, non-pregnancy related benefits too! For older individuals – both male and female, folic acid may be particularly useful for the support and maintenance of healthy cognitive function. It may also assist with lowering homocysteine levels in healthy individuals and support a healthy cardiovascular system.
