Folate, also called vitamin B9, is a nutrient that helps to produce and maintain new cells, and it’s especially important during cell division . Folate is not folic acid what is technically synthetic form of folate.
It is an important nutrient for women who are pregnant, or trying to conceive. Research on women suggests that folate deficiencies may lead to an abnormal number of chromosomes in cells.
According to research, there is substantial evidence to support the role of the micronutrient folate in the maintenance of normal sperm development and maturation.
The men with a high total folate intake experienced 18–30% lower frequencies of several types of sperm aneuploidy (abnormal number of chromosomes) compared to men with lower folate intake.
Women who don't get enough folic acid in their diet are at a higher risk of having a baby with a neural tube defect.

A lower the risk of congenital heart defects.
A lower risk of preterm birth and a lower risk of low-birth-weight babies.
