Vivitas Woman Folic Acid
An exciting time in your life is when you and your partner begin to plan on having a baby, and, of course, you want the best for your child. One of the greatest concerns for women of child-bearing age is that they get enough folic acid. This nutrient is needed for normal cellular development, and is crucial within the first weeks of pregnancy to ensure the proper formation of your unborn baby’s brain and spinal cord. You can get folic acid from your diet by eating liver, dark green leafy vegetables, green vegetables, dried beans, oranges, avocados, and fortified cereals.
