Composition Of Fe Tablets For Pregnant Women?
, I want to ask why the composition of 1 Fe tablet for pregnant women on each trademark is different and is there a standard mg of iron in Fe tablets for pregnant women? Thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Nutritional intake for pregnant women is indeed an important thing. This is because the intake is not only intended for himself, but also for the health of the development and growth of the fetus in his womb. Good and correct intake can even prevent pregnant women from the various complications and complications that they may get during pregnancy.
Iron (Fe) is a nutrient that pregnant women must fulfill. Adequate iron content in the blood helps increase blood volume and prevents red blood cell deficiency or anemia. If the blood volume is sufficient and not deficient, blood flow throughout the body including to the fetus will be sufficient and pregnant women will feel fresher and the fetus is healthier.
Regarding your question, about why the composition of Fe tablets is different, actually this is the right of each drug manufacturer, it has nothing to do with pregnant women themselves. As needed, every day pregnant women only need approximately 27 milligrams (mg) of iron intake which can be obtained from green vegetables such as spinach, lettuce, cabbage, nuts and lean meats. Larger doses are usually reserved for those who are seriously deficient in iron. Taking large doses in normal people can give the effect of black bowel movements.
You can also read other nutrients that pregnant women should meet, such as folic acid, calcium, fat, protein, and various vitamins and their sources by clicking this link. So, hopefully it answers your question.
