Folic Acid - An Overview
by Whitney Lasseter
since these births defects begin in the first month of pregnancy. Folic Acid also helps
prevent other birth defects such as cleft palate, low birth weight and helps in the
production of additional red blood cells needed to support the growth of the fetus.
Other studies have show that Folic Acid helps in the prevention of heart disease,
stroke and anemia. The Center for Disease Control recommends that all women of
childbearing age consume 400 micrograms of Folic Acid daily and that once
pregnancy is confirmed increase to 800 micrograms daily. The normal diet does not
provide a sufficient amount of Folic Acid so supplementation is required.

Prenatal Blessings provides prenatal diet and nutrition products especially formulated
to meet the increased nutritional needs of Moms2B including their Oatmeal/Raisin
Cookie fortified with Folic Acid.

Folic Acid, also know as Vitamin
B9, assists in preventing certain
birth defects of the spinal cord
and brain known as neural tube
defects (NTDs). Without a
sufficient amount of Folic Acid
the cells that form the baby’s
brain and spine become deficient
resulting in spina bifida (open
spine) or anencephaly
(undeveloped brain). There are
over 4,000 births defects
annually as a direct result of
insufficient Folic Acid in the
Mother’s body. Folic Acid should
be taken prior to conception
