If you are thinking about having a baby it is essential you know about folic acid. This B vitamin is crucial to the healthy development of the baby and it is recommended to start taking folic acid for at least one month before conception and to continue taking it for three months after conception.
During the first weeks of pregnancy your baby develops at a rapid rate. The baby's neural tube starts developing very early on in pregnancy, often before you even know you are pregnant. This tiny tube will eventually form the baby's brain and spinal cord. A defect can occur where the tube may not close properly causing a neural tube defect. By week 12 of pregnancy, the whole formation of the neural tube is complete.
Folic acid plays an integral role in helping to prevent neural tube defects and with the addition of iodine for healthy foetal and brain development, you can be assured you are providing the best nutrients at this time.
Iodine is an essential trace mineral that is a vital in helping to maintain and support healthy thyroid gland function. Folic acid has the added benefit of supporting healthy cardiovascular system health and maintaining red blood cell health.
Folic Acid + Iodine Complex for Preconception and Pregnancy provides nutrients that are fundamental to the healthy development of your baby and to help support a healthy pregnancy.
