The names Folate and Folic Acid have long been used interchangeably. Liquid Health’s Liquid Prenatal Vitamin, just released this month, contains Folate which studies have shown is more favorable than Folic Acid.

Folate is clearly more beneficial than Folic Acid for pregnant women, that’s why we decided to use it in our liquid prenatal vitamin.

Folic Acid and Folate are both names for a group of water soluble vitamins. While the names are sometimes used interchangeably, they are really quite different. Folic Acid is the synthetic acid form of the naturally occurring Folate. Liquid Health’s brand new Liquid Prenatal Vitamin contains Folate.

Studies over the last decade have shown that an increased intake of Folic Acid can lead to various health problems such as an increased decline in cognitive function, anemia and an inability to detect a Vitamin B12 deficiency. On the other hand, taking supplemental Folate does not carry these same risks. Folate is necessary for the formation of red blood cells as well as healthy nervous system function.

Additionally Folate is extremely important during pregnancy because of its ability to prevent neural tube detects in the developing fetus. Women who are pregnant or trying to become pregnant should take between 800-1200 mg/day of Folate.

“Folate is clearly more beneficial than Folic Acid for pregnant women, that’s why we decided to use it in our liquid prenatal vitamin,” says Brandon Siggard, CEO of Liquid Health, Inc.
