Good Vitamin For Pregnant Women?
Good afternoon ,
Hello Nurfitriya, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically during pregnancy, there are a variety of nutrients you need in more quantities than when you are not pregnant. Most of these nutrients most likely cannot be fulfilled only from food alone, so women who are pregnant are strongly advised to consume pregnancy vitamins. The following are some important nutrients that are needed for women who are pregnant:
Folic acid. Based on the latest recommendations, pregnant women are advised to get at least 600 µg of folic acid every day to prevent birth defects in infants.
Iron. Pregnant women are recommended to get at least 27 mg of iron every day to prevent anemia in pregnancy.
Calcium. Pregnant women are recommended to get at least 1000 mg of calcium every day. The best source of calcium is milk and its processed products.
Vitamin D. To ensure good calcium absorption, pregnant women are recommended to get at least 600 IU of vitamin D every day.
Other nutrients, such as vitamin B6 to help reduce nausea and vomiting in early trimester pregnancy, omega 3 fatty acids (which contain DHA and EPA) which are important for brain growth and vision of infants), and so forth.
In addition to the nutrients mentioned above, of course you also have to meet your macronutrient needs such as carbohydrates, protein, and fat from the food you eat.
Pay attention to the content in the vitamin that you want to consume. You may have any brands of pregnancy vitamins, as long as you can meet the important nutrient requirements mentioned above. You can also consult your obstetrician if you have problems eating and are worried that your nutrition will not be fulfilled.
