Folate, also known as folic acid or folacin, is a water-soluable B-vitamin. It is especially important during pregnancy, as it helps to reduce the risk of some birth defects. Folate is also used by the body to make red blood cells. In this way, it helps to prevent certain types of anaemia – low red blood cell count – which can cause you to lose concentration or feel weak or tired.1
1 large omega-3 egg provides 20% recommended daily requirement of folate. You’d need to eat 2 regular eggs to get the same amount.
