For MOM Folic Acid

 

Your body needs four times the amount of folic acid during pregnancy than in everyday life.
Since we cannot produce such great amount organically, it is advised to take 0.4 mg folic acid supplement daily, starting three months before conception, until the end of the first trimester.


Folic acid is especially important during periods of rapid cell division and growth such as infancy and pregnancy.
Sufficient dosage of folic acid prior to and during pregnancy prevents neural abnormalities in the fetus and ensures the formation of intact body systems and organs.

 

Folic acid is crucial for the creation of new body cells.


Folic acid has an important role in producing new red blood cells and prevent anemia.


Folic acid is needed to make DNA and helps prevent changes to DNA that may lead to cancer.
