Importance of folic acid in pregnancy

Folic acid or folate is a B vitamin that can be found in green leafy vegetables including some bread and breakfast cereals. You can also buy over the counter folic acid supplements as studies shown that women who take folic acid daily prior to conception and during early pregnancy reduce the risk of neural tube defect in the baby.

It will also reduce the risk of having a baby born with cleft lip or palate and congenital heart disease, it also plays a large role in cell growth and development as well as tissue formation.

Ideally, you can start taking folic acid supplement even before getting pregnant but if pregnancy is unplanned then start taking folic acid as soon as you found out that your pregnant.
