Why Women Should be taking a Folic Acid Supplement

Blood is important, we have a lot of it in us. Thanks to Folic acid (the man-made version of folate acid), our bodies are able to produce the extra red blood cells that your body needs when you are trying to become pregnant and while you are pregnant. Folic Acid is very important during pregnancy due to its ability to help up production of red blood cells that help to keep the baby healthy and developing normally.

Understanding Folic Acid

The CDC has said that if you plan on becoming pregnant or are pregnant the average woman needs at least 400 mcg of folic acid daily. It is important to take folic acid daily due to it being a water soluble vitamin (a water soluble vitamin means that it passes through the body very quickly, so taking it everyday helps to keep you healthy).

Folic Acid is Important

According to the British Dietetic Association folic acid plays a major role in the synthesis and repair of DNA and RNA, rapid cell division and growth, hearing loss due to aging and the enhancement of brain health. The most common birth defect associated with folic acid deficiency is spina bifida also known as split spine, this is where the spinal cord is unable to form properly.

Other Benefits

There are certainly more reasons other than just trying to become pregnant or being pregnant to up your folic acid intake. Another important reason to be making sure you are getting enough folic acid is that folic acid also works to keep our blood healthy. Folic acid deficiency can result in a certain type of anemia known as folate-deficiency anemia.

Folic Acid is Important

Folate rich foods that have a high concentrate of folate are leafy greens, beans, breads, rice and citrus. Sometimes it’s hard to plan your meals around every vitamin you may be needing or to even get enough of it when you do have it. Fortunately, we have made the perfect prenatal vitamin supplement for women who plan on becoming pregnant or currently are.
