Can Folic Acid Be Used For Pregnancy Programs?
Can folic acid be used for a pregnant program? If you can take a day how many capsules, yeah? And the right time to take folic acid at night or in the morning? Thank you.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Folic acid is a very important nutrient for pregnant women and those who are planning a pregnancy. In the pregnancy program, folic acid plays a role in increasing fertility, improving egg quality and ovarian function. Not only in women, men can also benefit from the consumption of folic acid. Consumption of folic acid can increase sperm count and thus, increase the potential for pregnancy.
Regarding your question, how many times a day will consume folic acid depends on how many micrograms (mcg) or how many milligrams (mg) of folic acid are contained in each folic acid product. So what is more important for you to know is the need for folic acid.
The need for folic acid in women who are undergoing a pregnancy program is 400 mcg or 0.4 mg per day. This you can get from food or from supplements. If you want from supplements then you can see for yourself, if it is more than 400 mcg, it is enough to be consumed once a day.
As for consumption at night or morning, there is no significant difference in its benefits. You can consume it either at night or in the morning. All you need to make sure is to not only depend on folic acid, but also to meet your vitamin and other mineral needs by eating fruits and vegetables, then avoid smoking, regular exercise, and managing stress well. So, hopefully answering your question.
