Worldwide, more than 300,000 babies are born with Neural Tube Defects (NTD) each year, serious birth defects of the brain and spine. 

Neural Tube Defects are a significant cause of infant death and lifelong disability, and most are preventable.

Development of the neural tube and its closure occurs in the first 3-4 weeks of embryonic development, before woman realizes that she is pregnant.

Recent case control studies suggest that maternal diets that have adequate amounts of Choline and Folate are linked to a lower risk of certain birth defects.

Good folate and choline status are associated with higher birth weight, improved placental function and weight, and fewer pre term-births.

Research has shown that taking 400 micrograms daily of folic acid before and during early pregnancy reduces the risk of neural tube defects.

All women, from the moment they begin trying to conceive untill 12 weeks of gestation, should take a folate supplement (400 mcirogram/day) and adequate choline (450 mg per day).

Folate & Choline

Good Folate (Quatrefolic®) and Choline (Vitacholine®) status are associated with higher birth weight, improved placental function and weight, and fewer pre term-births.

Folic acid use reduced occurrence of NTD (Neural Tube Defects) by 50 to 70%.

Prenatal use of Folic Acid leads to lifelong improvement of visuospatial memory in children born of the pregnancy.

Supplementation with Choline (Vitacholine®) during infancy and childhood leads to improved lifelong memory.

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA Plus) For brain and eye development

DHA is the predominant fatty acid in the central nervous system and found in the structural walls of brain cells. Amazingly, the fetal brain is made up of 60% fats of which 40% is DHA. There is a large increase in DHA uptake by the fetus and a corresponding increase in cerebral DHA content during the last trimester of pregnancy and the first post natal months. At birth the baby’s brain weight is about 70% of an adult’s brain weight; 15% of brain growth occurs during infancy and the pre-school years.

Vitamin B12

Is important in preventing neural tube and other neurological defects in infants. People with vitamin B12 deficiency are at risk for nerve damage, anemia and degeneration of the spinal cord. Relatively mild deficiency can affect brain functions and the nervous system, and even nerve damage may develop into permanent debilitation if left untreated.

13 symptoms of B12 deficiency

• Anemia

• Fatigue and muscle cramps

• Bleeding gums and bruising

• Depression

• Tingling and numbness in extremities

• Stunted growth and development in children

• Abdominal pain

• Appetite loss and weight loss

• Tender or sore tongue

• Eczema

• Rapid heartbeat

• Hair loss

• Mental confusion or forgetfulness
