Default Craving Is Okay, But Don't Forget Pre-Natal Vitamins

It's okay for pregnant woman craving. Cravings is some kind of
momentary desire for a particular food or flavor and often times there
is no rhyme or reason to why some women crave certain things and
others crave different things. Popular foods that pregnant women have
been known to crave include: sausage, peanut butter, popcorn, potato
chips, ice cream, pickles, M&Ms, French fries and Mexican entrees. Of
course, this short list is nowhere near comprehensive!

Craving to some foods for pregnant women is naturally common, but they
still have to fulfill the balance substances for their baby and their
self. Pre-natal vitamins supplement during pregnancy are important to
the health of a growing baby and the mother. The mother needed pre-

vitamins. One deficiency that has been found is the lack of enough
folic acid, one of the B vitamins. That's why to set up vitamin

be difficult to take in enough of those key vitamins and minerals
during pregnancy, most doctors recommend that you also take pre-natal
supplements.

Pre-natal vitamins supplement contain several of ingredient such as
folic acid, which is the synthetic form of the naturally occurring
folate, which is taken in the first four weeks of pregnancy. By so, it

neural tube defect by up to 70% which effect baby's development in the
womb.

Folic acid is most useful very early in the pregnancy; most doctors
recommend that women trying to conceive begin supplementing their diet
with 400 micrograms (mcg) of folic acid per day. Eating spinach and
chicken liver are great natural sources of folate which are
recommended throughout pregnancy. Folate is often added to breakfast
cereals and breads; this addition will be written on
