Folate or Folic Acid in Your Prenatal Vitamin? 

Most pregnant women are aware of the need for either folate or folic acid during pregnancy to prevent neural tube defects in babies. Both are shown to be beneficial, so what's the difference? 

Folate is the natural form of the vitamin otherwise known as B9. It is found in dark leafy greens, black-eyed peas, lentils, and other foods. Folic acid is its synthetic counterpart (it was invented in a lab in the 1940s) and is added to fortified grain products. Some studies suggest that folic acid can negatively impact health in the long run.

Smart Science For Smart and Healthy Babies

Alpha GPC for Baby's Brain 
Choline is a critical nutrient during pregnancy, since it is required for healthy fetal brain development.* The amount of choline a pregnant mother gets can influence her baby's future learning, cognitive function, and memory.* Research suggests that insufficient choline can have negative, lifelong effects on brain function. The adequate intake (AI) for pregnant women for choline is 480 mg. (Lactating moms need even more; their AI is set at 520 mg. Research shows that babies who breastfeed exclusively for 6 months get 120 mg per day from their mother's milk.) Alpha GPC is a potent source of highly bioavailable choline.* It provides more choline than phosphatidylcholine or soy lecithin, two more common forms of this nutrient. The choline in Alpha GPC penetrates the blood-brain barrier to nourish baby's rapidly developing brain.* 

Alpha GPC is in phospholipid form, the same type of phospholipid that is a major component of cell membranes. This makes it easy for the body to recognize, and is thus more absorbable.* In addition, it amplifies the amount of omega-3 absorbed by the body.* 

Omega-3 Fats For Motor Skills And More 

Numerous studies demonstrate the importance of omega-3 fats during pregnancy. Here's a quick roundup of some of them:

 

Omega-3 fats, especially DHA, are concentrated in the brain. The brain has the greatest need for omega-3 during the fetal growth period and until age two.

 

Women who take supplemental fish oil during pregnancy have higher levels of omega-3 in their breast milk for weeks after delivery. Breastfed infants have higher DHA levels at age 1 compared to formula fed babies; higher DHA levels in infants are associated with better hand-eye coordination.

 

The DHA advantage lasts for up to 7 years. Children whose mothers took fish oil had better hand-eye coordination at age 2. Children who had higher levels of DHA in their cord blood at birth achieved higher motor skill scores at age 7.

 

Women who supplement with fish oil during pregnancy are less likely to have premature or underweight babies. Women with a history of pregnancy complications show the most benefit.

 

FAQs

Yesterday. If that's not possible, it's a good idea to start taking UpSpring Prenatal+ as soon as you learn you're pregnant. In fact, if you are planning to become pregnant in the next few months, it's not too soon to start. 

Iron is a nutrient that's pretty easy to get in food, such as red meat or spinach. It's easy to overdo the iron, since an individual's need for supplemental iron can differ greatly. Rather than assuming a standard amount is safe for everyone, we suggest you work with your health care provider to determine if you need supplemental iron. 

Folate is the natural form of a vitamin otherwise known as B9. Folic acid is its synthetic counterpart (it was invented in a lab in the 1940s) and some studies suggest folic acid can negatively impact health in the long term. Folate, however, is found naturally in foods and is beneficial. It is one of the best-documented ways to prevent neural tube defects during pregnancy.* Women who are pregnant (or planning to become pregnant) should get at least 800 mcg of folate per day from diet and supplementation. 

Alpha GPC has only become available for inclusion in supplement formulas very recently. When it comes to brain health, Alpha GPC is a game-changer, because not only does it cross the blood-brain barrier to help nourish the rapidly developing fetal brain, but it also boosts absorption of omega-3 DHA. 

The challenge in formulating a prenatal multi is that you have to fit a lot in without causing nausea. The pleasant tasting mango-peach gummies contain the multivitamin portion of the formula and don't upset sensitive tummies. The three-gummy serving lets you take them all together, or spread throughout the day - your choice. We paired up the omega-3 and the Alpha GPC (choline) in a small, easy-to-swallow softgel because they work together to enhance the beneficial effects of both. (And because, to be honest, they would have spoiled the taste of the gummies.) 

UpSpring Prenatal+ gives you a great start on your daily choline requirement. You get 100 mg Alpha GPC per day. Choline is another one of those nutrients like iron that is fairly easy to get in food. If you're eating well and choosing choline-rich foods every day (such as eggs, shrimp, cod, salmon, beef, dairy products, certain legumes, and cruciferous veggies) you should have no trouble getting the recommended adequate intake.
