Generally speaking, folic acid must be supplemented by pregnancy and early pregnancy.However, although many women know that folic acid should be supplemented during pregnancy, they do not know if folic acid should be supplemented after pregnancy.
Folic acid is a water -soluble vitamin. The popular name is vitamin B9. It is an element that pregnant women need to supplement during pregnancy and the entire pregnancy period.The first three months and three months of pregnancy are the most critical stage of fetal growth, development, and placental formation. If women consume insufficient folic acid, it will cause the fetal nerve tube deformity and may cause abortion.
According to the requirements of science, pregnant women should consume 0.4 mg of folic acid daily in the preparation and early pregnancy. It should not be too little or too much.In the middle and late pregnancy, a large amount of folic acid is also needed to maintain the normal development of the placenta. Otherwise, it is easy to occur in premature birth, which will affect the normal development of the body and intelligence of the newborn.Therefore, from the first three months of pregnancy to breastfeeding, expectant mothers should supplement enough folic acid.
Will pregnant women take folic acid tablets with side effects? Can pregnant women use diet to replace western medicine to consume folic acid?
Generally speaking, too much intake of folic acid tablets will affect the metabolism of pregnant women and is not conducive to the development of the fetus.But as long as you take the doctor’s order and instructions strictly, there will be no major negative effects.Although many animals and plants also contain folic acid, these are natural folic acid. Under the action of light and heat, it is easy to oxidize, and it is difficult for pregnant women to get enough folic acid from the diet.The folic acid in western medicine is synthetic folic acid, which is more stable and easy to absorb.Therefore, diet is difficult to replace western medicine as the main source of folic acid for pregnant women.
Is male supplementation of folic acid?
Studies have found that folic acid is not only conducive to women’s pregnancy, but also has great obvious quality of men’s sperm, which will affect the health of newborns.Studies have found that the higher the sperm quality, the higher the sperm quality, and the chance of the quality of sperm is greatly reduced.Folic acid in the body does not meet the standards. Men who lack folic acid, the chance of chromosomal abnormalities in sperm is much higher than that of a male with sufficient folic acid, which means that the more likely the fetus will have diseases.Therefore, men should also supplement folic acid during pregnancy, and cooperate with their wives to help the baby’s health.
In addition, for the normal healthy development of the fetus, expectant mothers must develop good living habits and eating habits.Scientifically supplement folic acid and prepare for the foundation for healthy babies.
