Also known as vitamin B9, folic acid or folate, folacin is one of the B vitamins essential to the formation of red blood cells. Folacin is also necessary for the production of nucleic acids in the synthesis of DNA and RNA. Folate helps regulate the embryonic and fetal development of nerve cells. Therefore, it is vital for normal growth and development. Taken regularly, VitaMist Folacin can increase energy and enhance wellbeing.
A Healthy Start for Unborn Babies
Your baby's health not only depends on what you eat or don't eat during your pregnancy, but it also depends on eating nutritious foods before you become pregnant.
If you're thinking about becoming pregnant, make sure you're getting enough folic acid in your diet. Folic acid is an essential nutrient that may help prevent common birth defects*. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about folic acid.
"What is folacin?"
It's a B vitamin that can help prevent neural tube defects in the fetus when taken before and during pregnancy.
"What are neural tube defects?"
Neural tube defects are common birth defects, which include:
Fact: In the U.S. alone, approximately 2,500 newborns each year have a neural tube defect. About half these cases are considered related to inadequate folic acid intake by the mother.
"Why should I take folacin before I become pregnant?"
Taking folic acid before you're pregnant is essential in reducing the risk of birth defects. It's important to absorb folic acid in your blood so that when you do become pregnant, your baby will have a healthy start. Since neural tube defects develop 18 to 30 days after conception - often before you even know you're pregnant - taking folic acid is important both before conception and throughout your pregnancy.
"How can I get folacin in my diet?"
You can get adequate levels of folic acid by eating the following foods:
In addition, women can get this essential vitamin by taking dietary supplements containing folic acid. See your doctor or healthcare provider for advice.

VitaMist, founders of vitamin spray technology and the leading distributor of spray supplements, announced today that it had been named the 2016 Product of the Year by the massage therapy community at the World Massage Festival. Company president William Deihl was in Atlantic City to accept the award. He spoke with those attending about the positive benefits of nutrition and promoting the concept of "diet support," the idea that changing your diet should not be painful, and should be for life, rather than harmful weight loss plans that involve drugs, unreasonable menus, and questionable supplements.
VitaMist is honored to be named the 2016 Product of the Year," Mr. Deihl said. "The highly complementary combination of massage therapy and nutrition work in concert to improve health and support our bodies. Through a whole body view of health maintenance, addressing diet, nutrition, exercise, and rehabilitation we are better able to support our customers, promote healthy habits and prevent health issues."
Nutrition can be an endlessly confusing science, full of contradictory information — Does expensive really mean healthier? Is a vegan diet actually good for you? What does moderation even mean, anyway? — but every so often, you run into a decision that seems like a no-brainer. Like, for example, whether it’s better to satisfy your sweets craving with a handful of gummy vitamins or a handful of actual gummy candy. Both are made pretty much entirely of substances you can’t pronounce, but one is actually good for you. Obviously, you go with the vitamins.
