Why is folic acid so important during pregnancy?
Folic acid is an important building block for healthy embryonic development. It is essential for smooth, unproblematic cell division and new cell formation. A healthy folate level contributes to the natural and controlled growth of maternal tissue during pregnancy.
Folate is the natural form of vitamin B9 occurring in food. Folates are readily converted to the active form of vitamin B9 in the gut and absorbed by the body for various metabolic purposes. 89% of German women are undersupplied with Folates, due to a general nutritional deficiency of B-Vitamins or simply gut problems. One out of two women have the MTHFR defect which means that Folate though available cannot be utilised by the body. As during pregnancy the female body needs an additional amount of approximately 400µg of Folate per day, this should be substituted.
The synthetic form of Folate available is called Folic Acid.
Studies have shown that it makes sense to start taking sufficient folic acid 2-3 months prior to becoming pregnant. For pregnant women, the DGE recommends an additional 400µg of Folic Acid per day. Our Caneafem 2 phase products are specially adapted to the different phases during pregnancy. They ensure an optimal supply for those who are trying to become pregnant, during pregnancy and also during the important breastfeeding period.
