Folic acid is one of the most important vitamins to take when you’re trying for a baby and throughout the first 12 weeks of pregnancy as it increases maternal folate status, meaning a lower risk of neural tube defects.
But Folic Acid offers far more than just supporting those looking to conceive; it's an important vitamin for men and women of all ages, as it supports normal blood function and a healthy immune system.
Folic acid has got a lot of media attention in the last few years, and for good reason. Without supplementing, it’s unlikely we’re getting enough Folic Acid in our diets – especially if you are trying for a baby or pregnant. According to the NHS:
“Adults need 200mcg of folic acid a day. It can't be stored in the body, so you need it in your diet every day. But if you're pregnant or trying for a baby, it's recommended that you take 400mcg folic acid supplement daily from the time you stop using contraceptives until you're 12 weeks pregnant.
This is to help prevent birth defects, such as spina bifida, in your baby. Make sure you speak to your doctor if you have a family history of conditions like Spina Bifida (known as neural tube defects) as you may need to take a higher dose of 5mg of folic acid each day until you're 12 weeks pregnant.”
Whilst a folic acid supplement is a vital vitamin for those looking to conceive, it’s also extremely beneficial for all adults to be taking daily. It is otherwise known as vitamin B9, and together with b12 it is needed for your body to create red blood cells.
