Folic acid (400 mcg)
Folic acid is a type of vitamin B complex called vitamin E-9. As a result, folic acid is a water-soluble vitamin that does not accumulate in the body like a fat-soluble vitamin. Therefore, it is imperative to ensure an uninterrupted supply of folic acid during pregnancy.
Folic acid 400 mcg requirement during pregnancy –
Abnormal neural tube abnormalities are caused by a lack of folic acid in the fetus during pregnancy. As a result, various problems may arise after the child’s birth. According to experts, regular intake of folic acid 400 mcg reduces abnormalities in the fetus’s neural tube by 50 percent. Studies have shown that taking at least 400 micrograms of folic acid daily at the onset of childbearing reduces the risk of congenital disabilities in the unborn child. Most congenital disabilities occur in the first three to four weeks of pregnancy. Therefore, folic acid should be taken regularly at the beginning of the pregnancy. The US CDC, or Center for Disease Control, recommends taking 400 micrograms of folic acid tablets daily, at least one month before childbirth, and continuing for the first three months.
