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 developmen, 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 borth 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)
