You must eat folic acid, but do you know folic acid?

Preparation couples and expectant mothers know that they should start eating folic acid from three months before pregnancy, and have been eaten until three months after pregnancy or throughout pregnancy.You may just roughly know that it is important to replenish folic acid before and during pregnancy, but it is not very well understood by what is folic acid, what functions, and so on.

Folic acid is a kind of water -soluble B vitamin, which is purified from spinach leaves, so it is named as folic acid.Folic acid is a substance necessary for body cell growth and reproduction, and can promote the maturity of young cells in the bone marrow.If the lack of folic acid can cause giant red blood cell anemia and leukocyte reduction, so folic acid is important to the human body, especially pregnant women.

What is the specific effect of folic acid on pregnant women and fetuses?

1. Prevention of fetal defects

Women can prevent fetal neural tube development, Tang family syndrome, congenital heart disease, and rabbit lips in the first three months of conception and taking folic acid every day before or the entire pregnancy.Natural abortion and giant cell anemia during pregnancy.

2. Reduce the risk of expectant mothers to suffer from pregnancy hypertension syndrome

Studies have shown that taking folic acid can reduce the risk of pregnant women with hypertension syndrome.

How much is the most suitable content of folic acid?

After research, 0.4 mg of folic acid is used to prevent fetal nervous tube deformities.Specific mothers should take 0.4 mg of folic acid every day during pregnancy and pregnancy.The best time to take folic acid is in the early morning, half an hour to one hour after breakfast, at this time the body’s absorption of folic acid is relatively high.

Of course, in addition to taking folic acid directly, expectant mothers can also consume folic acid from food, such as:

2. Fruit: Orange, strawberry, cherry, banana, lemon, peach, Li, apricot, bayberry, begonia, jujube, pomegranate, grapes, kiwi, pear, apple, etc.

But I also want to remind pregnant mothers and expectant mothers that although folic acid is an element that must be supplemented, it cannot be blindly added.After taking too much folic acid, it will affect the absorption of zinc, which will cause pregnant mothers to deficient in zinc. The fetus will not replenish enough zinc and will develop slowly.In addition, too much folic acid will also interfere with anticonor drugs and induce the seizures of patients.

Taking folic acid must be used under the guidance of a doctor or health care personnel. Do not abuse it. In particular, you must not use folic acid tablets instead of folic acid supplements.Oral folic acid (0.4 mg/day) is an oral prevention medicine approved by the China State Drug Administration except vaccine. It is also the only medicine approved by the State Drug Administration to prevent fetal congenital neurophastin.The "folic acid tablets" sold in the pharmacy contain 5 milligrams of folic acid.
