Distance For Consumption Of Folic Acid And Pregnancy Milk At 3 Weeks Pregnant?
Tonight I want to ask, I am now 3 weeks pregnant and I am taking folavit medicine, how much distance can I take after drinking folavit with prenagen milk, thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The two products that you mention are both supplements that can be consumed to maintain pregnancy. Ideally, the long-term consumption of any drugs and supplements during pregnancy should only be done on the recommendation and supervision of a doctor. This is because the nutritional needs and health conditions of each person can be different. It is feared that consumption of supplements can lead to malnutrition or, on the contrary, excess nutrition. In addition, improper consumption methods can also trigger interactions (both strengthening or weakening) or other health problems, for example nausea, diarrhea, and so on.
Folavit has an active content of 400 mcg of folic acid. Folic acid plays an important role in making genetic material from cells (DNA), so it is useful for regulating growth and development. Folic acid also plays a role in the maintenance of a healthy nervous system, the formation of red blood cells, and various other body functions. By consuming enough folic acid during pregnancy, the risk of defects in the fetus, for example anencephalus, spina bifida, or cleft palates, can be significantly reduced. Consumption of folic acid is also beneficial in preventing anemia. In fact, apart from taking supplements, you can still meet your folic acid needs through daily food sources, such as nuts, lentils, lettuce, avocado, asparagus, beets, broccoli, spinach, and so on. Even so, if you are not sure that you can meet your nutritional needs through food alone, then giving folic acid supplements should be considered.
Like folavit, prenagen milk for pregnant women also contains high levels of folic acid. In addition, milk for pregnant women also contains other sources of nutrients that have various other functions, such as:
Calories, for an energy source
Protein, to support cell growth and increase fetal weight
Calcium, to support the growth of muscles, heart, nerves, blood, and fetal enzyme systems
Iron, to form red blood cells, builds up the enzyme system in breast milk
AHA and DHA, to support the development of brain cells
Zinc, to increase immunity
Vitamin A, to help the growth of skin cells, bones, eyes
Vitamins B1, B2, Niacin, B12, C, phosphorus, iodine, and so on
You should go directly to a gynecologist so that you can be evaluated further, whether it is true that you need these supplements. If so, then how to consume it properly so as not to cause interactions with one another will also be explained directly by your doctor. In general, you need to give at least 2 hours between taking your medication and consuming milk. But back again, this may vary depending on the content of the drug and milk, as well as the health condition of each person.
Hope this helps ..
