Folic acid is one of the most important vitamins during pregnancy. Folic acid is especially important during the first 3 months of pregnancy, as it contributes to the function of the cerebral cortex and the prevention of spinal fissure in the fetus. In addition, it helps prevent disturbances in the development of the fetal palate.
It is especially important to take vitamins B6 and B12 with folic acid. They contribute to the normal functioning of nervous and muscle tissue and the maintenance of skin health. The lack of B vitamins can lead to depression, dry skin, and gastrointestinal upset.
Vitamins B6 and B12 are also important for the regulated function and hematopoiesis of blood vessels and the development of red blood cells.
Vitamin A is important for strengthening the immune system and preventing iron deficiency and birth defects. Vitamin A helps strengthen vision and teeth and ensures healthy skin.
In addition, vitamin A is needed for the normal formation of both female and male gametes and to prevent a poorly developed placenta.
Insufficient amounts of vitamin E in the body can lead to fertility problems in both women and men. Vitamin E deficiency also accelerates cell aging.
Zinc contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system and increases fertility. It helps to strengthen the hair and make the skin cleaner. Insufficient amounts of zinc in the body can slow wound healing and lead to mental disabilities.
