Folic acid and iodine tablets Sunny Well are nutritional supplements that are essential for women before pregnancy and during egg cell formation. This supplement prevents fetal neural tube defects, so it is recommended that women who plan to become pregnant start taking folic acid and iodine at least one to three months before pregnancy and continue to do so during pregnancy. Note that the amount and duration of use of this supplement should be done under the supervision of a nutritionist.
Iodine is one of the most important building blocks of thyroid hormones. This substance has a vital effect on the growth and development of the fetal and neonatal cognitive system. Deficiency or not receiving enough iodine during pregnancy can have side effects in the mother and cause developmental disorders of the nervous system of the fetus and baby. Studies on iodine deficiency during pregnancy have shown its role in the development of the nervous system during fetal and neonatal life and the development of delayed physical-neurological, cognitive-behavioral development as well as the development of cretinism. During normal pregnancy and lactation, many changes occur in the function of the thyroid gland. These include increased thyroid hormone production, increased urinary iodine excretion, iodine secretion in breast milk, and fetal iodine requirements. Therefore, mothers need more iodine to maintain the body’s normal metabolism as well as transfer iodine and thyroxine to the baby and fetus during pregnancy and lactation. This deficiency can be treated with folic acid and iodine tablets.
Folic acid is one of the B vitamins in water solution. It plays an important role in mental health as well as brain function. It is important to use enough folic acid before and during pregnancy. Its deficiency causes some abnormalities in the neural tubes and spinal cord of the fetus. Many of these problems can be prevented by taking adequate and timely folic acid supplements in the reproductive years, so women who are planning to become pregnant are advised to take folic acid before and during pregnancy.
