New Research: Children's brain and poorer cognitive performance linked with low-folate status in mothers' early pregnancy

DESIO, Italy - February, 8th 2016

Newly results about association between prenatal folate status and children's brain anatomy have been showed in a research published in the British Journal of Nutrition in early 2016 (Ars et al 2016 - Prenatal folate, homocysteine and vitamin B12 levels and child brain volumes, cognitive development and psychological functioning.)

The research suggests that prenatal maternal folate deficiency in early pregnancy has a long-lasting global effect on brain development in offspring and has been associated with smaller total brain volume, poorer language and visuo-spatial performance in children aged between 6 and 8 years.

Quatrefolic®, as a source of the active form of folate, the (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), can be the first choice in the folate supplementation. Quatrefolic® maximizes the benefit of folate supplementation without incurring in fruitless effect of other sources of folate, protecting mothers in pregnancy and, according to the study above, young children.
