FOLINAL PLUS contains IRON and FOLIC acid.
The amount of blood in your body increases during pregnancy until you have almost 50 percent more blood than usual, so you need more iron to make more hemoglobin.
You need extra iron for your growing baby and placenta, especially in the second and third trimesters.
Many women need more because they start their pregnancy with insufficient stores of iron.
during pregnancy is associated with preterm delivery, low birth weight
, and infant mortality
Folic acid is one of the B vitamins.
Your body needs folic acid to produce red blood cells and DNA (the body's genetic material). Folic acid is also important for the brain, nervous system and spinal fluid. It can prevent your baby from developing a neural tube defect
(NTD) such as spina bifida
I hope you understand the importance of iron and FOLIC ACID now.
