  • Why take Folic Acid in Pregnancy?

    It's recommended by the NHS that all women who could get pregnant should take a daily supplement of 400 micrograms of folic acid before they're pregnant and during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy when the baby's spine is developing. If you did not take folic acid supplements before getting pregnant, you should start taking them as soon as you find out you're pregnant. 

    Folic acid and folate help the body make healthy new red blood cells. Red blood cells carry oxygen to all the parts of your body. If your body does not make enough red blood cells, you can develop anemia. Anemia happens when your blood cannot carry enough oxygen to your body, which makes you pale, tired, or weak. Also, if you do not get enough folic acid, you could develop a type of anemia called folate-deficiency anemia.

    Folic Acid with Folate Complex Vitamin serves many important functions in your body. For example, it plays a crucial role in cell growth and the formation of DNA. Folic acid protects unborn babies against serious birth defects.

    Everyone needs folic acid to be healthy. But it is especially important for pregnant women or women trying to conceive : 

    Folic acid protects unborn children against serious birth defects called neural tube defects. These birth defects happen in the first few weeks of pregnancy, often before a woman knows she is pregnant. Folic acid might also help prevent other types of birth defects and early pregnancy loss (miscarriage).

    Folic Acid supports the blood to be healthy by helping red blood cells form and grow. Not getting enough folic acid can lead to a type of anemia called folate-deficiency anemia. Folate-deficiency anemia is more common in women of childbearing age than in men. 

    Folic Acid vs Folate

    Folate and folic acid are both forms of vitamin B9 but they are different

    Folic acid is the synthetic form of folate - folic acid has to be converted in the body. When we consume folic acid it has to undergo a process to be converted to the active form of folate that then our bodies can use. Yet, this process is slow and inefficient in some people.

    Folic acid is much cheaper to put into a vitamin than the active form, thus you will often see folic acid in most conventional prenatal and multivitamins.  

    Folate (Calcium L-Methylfolate) is the naturally occurring form of vitamin B9 and under goes less steps for the body to process. 

    Methylfolate supplements are generally recommended for people with a common genetic mutation called MTHFR. By taking a folate (methylfolate) supplement instead of folic acid, they are bypassing the defective enzyme and providing the body with active folate that it can use right away.

    What The NHS Says About Folic Acid

    Highly recommended for pregnant women and those trying to conceive. You should take a 400 micrograms folic acid tablet every day before you're pregnant and until you're 12 weeks pregnant. Folic acid can help prevent birth defects known as neural tube defects, including spina bifida. If you did not take folic acid before you conceived, you should start as soon as you find out you're pregnant.
