Supplements before getting pregnant

Taking a folic acid supplement is one of the most important things that a woman can do in preparation for getting pregnant.
Many women do not realize how important folic acid is not only after you get pregnant, but before you conceive as well. Doctors say that taking folic acid supplements for one month before getting pregnant can reduce the risk of neural tube defects by up to 70 percent.

Once a woman gets pregnant, her recommended daily dose of folic acid jumps up to 600-800 mcg per day. It is always a good idea to talk to your doctor before beginning a folic acid supplement when you are trying to conceive, so that he or she can tell you what the best dosage recommendation is for your particular situation.
