Folate and folic acid help prevent birth defects
Folate is a B vitamin that helps prevent serious abnormalities of the brain and spinal cord called neural tube defects.1-4
Folate occurs naturally in green leafy vegetables like spinach and collard greens. Oranges, lemons, and other citrus fruits are also high in folate. Folic acid, the synthetic form of folate, can be found in fortified foods such as cereals, bread, flour, pasta, crackers, and orange juice.2,5
