Prenatal Vitamins- A Nutritional Insurance Policy for All Women, Not Just For Expecting Mothers

Did you know that the U.S. Public Health Service and the March of Dimes Foundation recommend that all women of childbearing age get a minimum of 400 micrograms of folic acid each day?

With today’s fast-paced diets, most women do not get all the nutrition their bodies need from their diet alone. It is a smart idea to start taking a good prenatal vitamin whenever there is a chance that you may become pregnant. The main reason is because of the ingredient folic acid. Folic acid is extremely important to help prevent birth defects. Neural tube defects develop in the first 28 days after conception, which is before many women realize they are pregnant. And, since about half of all pregnancies are unplanned, taking a prenatal vitamin before you become pregnant is a great nutritional insurance policy for your future baby’s health.
