FOLIC ACID IS AN IMPORTANT ESSENTIAL VITAMIN REQUIRED DURING PREGNANCY

Folic acid is a vitamin found in many foods. It is especially important for women who could become pregnant because folic acid can help prevent birth defects. Begin each day with Folic Acid by drinking a large glass of orange juice and eating a bowl of fortified cereal. This is an easy breakfast to fix. It is also a healthy way to start your day. That is because this breakfast will give you half the recommended daily amount of folic acid. It is easy to be sure that your diet contains folic acid. You will be surprised at how many foods and juices contain folic acid: green, leafy vegetables, like spinach and broccoli; citrus fruits and juices; enriched breads, cereals and grains; and beans.

Folic acid is good for all ages. No matter what your age, foods rich in folic acid are good for you. Even young girls should try to include foods with folic acid in their snacks and meals. Start eating them now. That way, when you are older and planning to become a mother, folic acid will already be a part of your diet.

Folic acid can help prevent birth defects. All women need folic acid because it works best for you and your baby early in the first month of pregnancy, a time when you may not even know you are pregnant. Continued use of folic acid after the first month of pregnancy, and throughout your life, ensures the future good health of you and your family. Folic acid can reduce certain birth defects of the brain and spinal cord by more than 50 percent. These birth defects are called neural tube defects (NTDs). NTDs happen when the spinal cord fails to close properly. The most common neural tube defect is spina bifida. This occurs when part of the baby's spinal cord remains outside the body. The baby may have paralyzed legs and, later, may develop bladder and bowel control problems. The most serious neural tube defect is anencephaly. The baby is born without part of its skull and brain, and eventually dies.

MoonDragon's Pregnancy Information: Spina Bifida

Folic acid is in vitamin supplements, too. Taking a multivitamin that has a minimum of 0.4 mg (400 mcg) of folic acid is another way of getting the recommended amount. A good natural prenatal vitamin is recommended. Recommended dosage for pregnancy and lactation is 0.8 mg (800 mcg) folic acid. Avoid over-the-counter or prescription, drug store varieties. Most multivitamins contain the recommended amount of folic acid. However, avoid taking more than one multivitamin per day, unless recommended by your midwife. Too much of the other vitamins, especially vitamin A, could cause serious health problems. Do not be confused by labels. Read food and vitamin labels carefully to be sure you are getting enough folic acid. On the labels, folic acid is also called folate. The amount of folic acid or folate in a vitamin or food may be given as either 400 micrograms or 0.4 mg. They are the same amounts.

PRENATAL & FOLIC ACID SUPPLEMENTS

  • Prenatal Vitamin Supplements provide general nutrition, which is very important for fetal development and to support pregnancy. Prenatal vitamins usually contain some level of folic acid in their formulae.


  • Folic Acid helps prevent birth defects and supports pregnancy. Folic acid is necessary precursor for the manufacture of genetic material like RNA and DNA. Folic acid also assists in the growth and repair of tissues and in the conversion of fats and amino acids into other useful products in the body.


  • Some women need more folic acid, especially women who have had babies with NTDs and want to become pregnant again. If you have had a baby with an NTD, speak with your midwife before planning your next pregnancy. she may recommend a prenatal vitamin that contains a higher dose (4 mg or 4000 mcg) of folic acid. Other women need more folic acid include frequent dieters, drug or alcohol users, smokers, women on "the pill", and women who consistently do not eat well-balanced meals. These women should pay close attention to their diets if they are considering becoming pregnant and bring their concerns to their midwife or health care provider.

    VITAMIN B-9 - FOLIC ACID (FOLATE) SUPPLEMENT PRODUCTS

    Folate / Folic Acid (Vitamin B-9) is a member of the B-Complex family. It is found in abundance in leafy green vegetables. Folic acid participates in a coenzyme reaction that synthesizes DNA needed for cell growth and new cell formation, and helps convert vitamin B-12 to one of its coenzyme forms. Helps promote healthy DNA function, Maintains already normal homocysteine levels, which is important for heart health, Promotes healthier skin, Helps maintain a healthy GI tract, Is part of a healthy immune system, Maintains healthy endothelial function, Improves mild memory loss associated with aging, Optimal levels of folate are necessary for healthy cell division and protein synthesis and are especially important for the maintenance of a healthy GI tract. The systemic need for folate increases in certain states in which increased cell multiplication is needed. Chronic use of medications such as aspirin in therapeutic doses and antacids can interfere with the metabolism of folate. Cyanocobalamin is a synthetic and inexpensive form of vitamin B12 that is converted in the body to its bioactive forms, methylcobalamin and cobamamide. Like beta-carotene, some evidence suggests that folate (also known as vitamin B-9) deficiencies may contribute to the development of cancerous or precancerous lesions in the cervix. Researchers also theorize that folate consumed in the diet may improve the cellular changes seen in cervical dysplasia by lowering homocysteine (a substance believed to contribute to the severity of cervical dysplasia) levels. The benefit of using dietary folate to prevent or treat cervical dysplasia has not been sufficiently proven.

    Methyl Folate ((6S)-5-methyl tetrahydrofolate or 5-MTHF) is the most biologically active form of folic acid. Quatrefolic is the 4th generation development in folate delivery. With certain inherited errors in metabolism and under a variety of physiologic stresses, the transformation of folic acid into the active form of folate either does not properly take place or is inadequate. Unlike folic acid, this form of folate can cross the blood-brain barrier. Methyl Folate is needed to support cardiovascular and neurologic health and proper cell division. Folate supplementation during pregnancy has been shown to reduce the risk of neural tube birth defects.
