Folic acid is a nutrient that is recommended to be taken not just during pregnancy, but also preconception when a woman is of childbearing age. Folic acid is a synthesized version of naturally available B Vitamin known as “Folate” and prevents Neural Tube Defects in the baby and plays an important role in Red Blood Cell production.

Benefits of Folic Acid During Pregnancy 

The supplementation of Folic Acid during pregnancy is crucial. This is because the Neural Tube forms in the first few weeks of pregnancy, often before the pregnant woman even knows that she’s pregnant. This makes adequate supplementation of Folic Acid during pre-conception very important. Some benefits of Folic Acid during pregnancy are –

  • Folic Acid can prevent Neural Tube Defects such as Spina Bifida and Anencephaly
  • Folic Acid can protect the baby from Cleft Lip and Palate
  • Folic can prevent Low Birth Weight in babies, Miscarriage, and Poor Growth in the womb.
  • Folic acid during pregnancy can reduce the risk of pregnancy complications, heart disease, stroke, some types of cancers, and Alzheimer’s Disease.

Folic Acid’s proven & suggested benefits make this nutrient a must-have during pregnancy to prevent diseases & complications.

Sources of Folic Acid

Consuming L-Methyl Folate ensures that the pregnant lady can effectively absorb & utilize the Folate, even if she has an MTHFR mutation. Additionally, L-Methyl Folate is 7 times more bioavailable than Folic Acid, making it much better & safer for Indian Pregnant Ladies.
