folate

It is a water-soluble vitamin found naturally in a variety of foods (green leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, legumes). It helps in the production of red blood cells and the synthesis of DNA. Its role in preventing congenital diseases and birth malformations is known, but it has been shown that it has a significant role since the formation of the ovules in women.

We use folate, the natural form of Vitamin B9 instead of folic acid (synthetic source) because it is the optimal form for availability to the body and does not present the same potential risks of accumulation.

According to the Spanish Society of Gynecology, the recommended daily intake of folic acid in women is 200 micrograms a day, between 400 and 800 micrograms a day if they are planning to become pregnant or if they are already pregnant, and 300 micrograms a day if they are breastfeeding. .
