Happy Women’s Week Wednesday! In celebration of women’s health, we’ve released our new public service announcement on YouTube. “Before You Know” focuses on how folic acid can prepare women now for better birth outcomes later on in life.
Taking folic acid everyday 3-12 months before pregnancy can lower the risk spina bifida, anencephaly and other neural birth defects by 70% (1) . It may also lower the chance of pre-term labor and low infant birth weights. So remember to check those vitamins for 400mcg of folic acid B9! To see if you’re getting 400 mcg from your food, there’s a cool App available for iPhone from vitatrack that will help calculate your intake.
