Benefits And Effects Of Taking Blood Booster Supplements During Menstruation?
Hello, I want to ask if the tablet is added with ferrous fumarate folic acid, is it good to drink during menstruation? please explain the benefits and effects during menstruation
Thank you for the question.
Ferrous fumarate supplements are good for consumption in order to prevent and overcome iron deficiency. Iron deficiency itself can cause a variety of complaints, such as weakness, fatigue, tightness, dizziness, headaches, palpitations, frequent sleepiness, difficulty concentrating, pale, and so on. There are many factors that can cause iron deficiency, mainly due to unhealthy eating and drinking patterns, bleeding, celiac disease, post-intestinal surgery, pregnancy, and so on. Excessive bleeding during menstruation also risks causing iron deficiency. Therefore, it is not forbidden to consume this supplement while menstruating.
Meanwhile, folic acid is a vitamin that is useful in helping the process of DNA production, regulating the formation of red blood cells, while preventing fetal defects. Like ferrous fumarate, consumption of folic acid during menstruation can also help overcome excessive blood loss if you experience menorrhagia (heavy and / or excessive menstrual bleeding). So, consumption may be done during menstruation.
Although it is not dangerous to take these two supplements during menstruation, but you should still not carelessly take supplements without the advice of your doctor, especially in the long run. If you want to take certain supplements, you should first check with your doctor to be taught the best way to consume them. Meanwhile, if indeed you experience symptoms of iron deficiency and folic acid, you better try first to fulfill them by consuming lots of natural foods, such as dark green vegetables, beans, whole grains, fruits, fortified cereals, bread, red meat, tofu, tempeh, and so on.
I hope this helps.
