A variable diet during pregnancy supports the growth and development of fetus and mother’s well-being. The intake of iron and folate from a diet is low in many women before pregnancy, in consequence; the body stores of iron and folate are already insufficient at the beginning of pregnancy. Many women have lowered blood hemoglobin level in pregnancy due to natural physiological change of blood amount. Therefore, iron supplement is often needed to maintain adequate hemoglobin level and to ensure the growth of fetus.
A sufficient intake of folic acid is important even when planning pregnancy and in the early weeks of pregnancy. Folic acid contributes to cell division of the fetus and development of neural tube to brain and spinal cord which occurs at early weeks of pregnancy. In Finland the recommended intake of folic acid during pregnancy is 500 μg daily, this amount many mothers can’t get only from the diet.
FerroFol-C has been developed especially for pregnant women to increase the intake of iron and folic acid in addition to the intake from a diet. In the supplement iron is in well absorbable form of ferrous(II)bisglycinate which is non-irritable in the stomach. Iron content of 25 mg is well tolerated. Folic acid of 400 μg ensures the sufficient intake of folate during pregnancy. Vitamin C enhances the absorption of iron.
