Folic Acid


My pregnant wife by davhor
Women of child bearing age and specifically those women trying to
conceive need to include folic acid in their daily meal plan.  All women who could become pregnant should
take a daily vitamin containing 0.4mg of folic acid.  Taking a daily supplement does not replace
healthy eating.   Consuming foods
containing folic acid have other benefits, including promoting heart health and
reducing the risk for stroke.  Foods high
in folic acid are whole grain breads, liver, spinach, broccoli, brussel
sprouts, orange juice, beans, lentils and foods fortified with folic acid such
as cereals.
