What is folic acid?
Folic acid contributes, among other things, to a normal cell division, cell growth and genome. Therefore, the vitamin plays an important role in fetal development during pregnancy. Folic acid also contributes to a normal immune system and to the formation of red blood cells, which in the long run can reduce fatigue and exhaustion.
Folic acid for pregnant women
Folic acid, or folate, belongs to the B vitamins and is usually referred to as vitamin B9. Folic acid is found naturally in food and is found in, among other things, egg yolks, legumes and spinach. Folic acid is a water-soluble vitamin that can not be stored in the body, and it is therefore important that we get it in us regularly through the diet. A dietary supplement with folic acid is a flexible way to ensure the intake of folic acid. Especially women of childbearing age who are planning to become pregnant and pregnant women in the first trimester are usually recommended an extra intake of folic acid. This is because the effect of folic acid on a normal fetal development takes place in the beginning of pregnancy. The recommended amount is then 400 micrograms per day.
Does folic acid have any side effects?
A normal intake of folic acid does not cause any side effects. Because it is a water-soluble vitamin, it cannot be stored in the body. At very high doses, certain side effects such as itching and rash have been observed. It is best to always follow the product recommendation when using and avoid combining several different supplements with the same substance to avoid side effects. Overdosing folic acid does not improve its effect in the body, and therefore serves no purpose.
