<p>Anyone hear of liquid folate helping for down syndrome prevention?  I am 42 and trying to conceive our third child and am afraid of down syndrome due to my age....Anyone taking this supplement?</p>

<p>Any source of folic acid is supposed to reduce the risk of birth defects. If at an increased risk, talk to a pharmacist about the amount you could take - the amount in prenatal vitamins isn't enough. Never heard of liquid folate but imagine it is similar to any other folic acid supplement?</p>
