( — November 15, 2017) Orlando, FL — Pregnancy is a delicate stage in a woman’s life. This is why it is vital for pregnant women to nourish their bodies with the needed nutrients.

Experts reveal why folic acid may be essential during pregnancy. Folic acid is the synthetic form of vitamin B9, which is otherwise called folate.

According to some experts, folic acid aids in the reduced risk of neural tube defects (NTDs), which pertains to serious birth defects of the spinal cord such as spina bifida. When it affects the brain, it is called anencephaly.

The neural tube is the part of the embryo where the baby’s brain and spine develop. In the United States, NTDs affect around 3,000 pregnancies every year.

It is at a very early stage of development that neural tube defects develop. It is also when many women are still not aware that they are pregnant. This is why it is important for pregnant women to take folic acid even before they conceive.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also reports that folic acid was able to reduce the risk of neural tube defects by 70%. It was taken at least a month before conception and in the first trimester of pregnancy.

According to researchers, this B vitamin aids in reducing a baby’s risk of other defects, which include cleft lip and cleft palate. It may even help in fighting certain types of heart defects. Preeclampsia, which is a serious blood pressure disorder that affects around 5% of pregnant women, may also be potentially reduced by folic acid.

Getting adequate amounts of folic acid has also been found to be particularly essential in the rapid cell growth of the placenta as well as the baby’s development.
