Another important B vitamin that is found in XFactor is Folate. Folate has been shown to be important for cell growth and metabolism. WebMD says that it has been shown that there are plenty of Americans that are deficient in Folate.
Folate and Folic Acid supplements are common for pregnant women and for women who are trying to conceive. Folate “reduces the risk for birth defects of a baby’s brain and spine -- spina bifida and anencephaly -- by 50% to 70%” says WebMD. The same article also relates that Folate can also lower the risk of preeclampsia and early labor. It is commonly recommended that any woman at childbearing age should take a multivitamin or a Folate supplement, because they can help protect against birth defects that may form before a woman knows she’s pregnant.
Folate can be used as a measure to treat and prevent deficiencies that can cause types of anemia and other problems as well. When trying to treat these deficiencies it is recommended to use Folate along with Vitamin B12, another vitamin in XFactor.
