Vitamins you need if you’re looking to get pregnant

Vitamins to get pregnant

Let’s learn more about the vitamins needed to achieve pregnancy and the foods in which we can find them.

– Vitamins of group B
Although each one has a different function (B1, B2 … B12, etc.), in general we could say that the B group of vitamins is responsible for transforming carbohydrates, fats and proteins into energy for our cells. Hence its great importance!

Among all of them, if we talk about getting pregnant we must focus on vitamins B12 and B8 (folic acid) because they help the correct formation of the baby in the belly of its mother (especially its nervous system). It is recommended to start consuming folic acid before pregnancy, something in which Femibion 1 can help you, always as a complement to a healthy lifestyle.

By eating a balanced and varied diet, you will be able to access the B vitamin that your body needs. It is present in some green leafy vegetables, yeast, rice, whole wheat, fruits (such as citrus or bananas), lean meats, organ meats, nuts …

– Vitamin C We have heard a lot about vitamin C
. But do you know why it’s so important if you want to get pregnant? Vitamin C or ascorbic acid helps maintain optimal progesterone levels so that the eggs maintain their cycles and, therefore, fertilization is more successful.

The main source of vitamin C is found in fruits and vegetables, especially in: citrus fruits, strawberries, kiwis, tomatoes, spinach, peppers …

-Vitamin d
Surely you know someone who has been diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency. This helps our body absorb calcium, so important for bones, so its lack can lead to diseases such as osteoporosis.

Did you know that our own body generates vitamin D through sun exposure? On the other hand, it is also present in foods with milk and other dairy products such as butter, eggs, blue fish …

-Vitamin E
Vitamin E is an antioxidant, helps your immune system, is essential at the cellular level, contributes to the regulation of the hormonal system… You can find it in foods such as nuts, egg yolks, olive oil, etc.

If you’re looking to get pregnant, there are also other nutrients you need to make sure you’re ingesting at the right levels. These are some such as zinc, iron, monounsaturated lipids…

* Supplemental intake of folic acid increases maternal folate level. A low maternal folate level is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects in the fetus. Therefore, it is recommended that women take 400 μg of supplemental folic acid daily for at least one month before conception and up to three months afterward. There are many risk factors in the development of neural tube defects. Alteration of a single factor may or may not have a beneficial effect.
KS et al. MTHFR 677C-T genotype is associated with folate and homocysteine concentrations in a large population-based, double-blind trial of folic acid supplementation. Am J Clin Nutr 2011;93(6);1365-1372. 2 Yan L et al. PLoS One 2012;7(10):e416892012.
Femibion® is always by your side, from family planning to breastfeeding. With nutrients selected for a tailor-made contribution in each phase of your pregnancy: they provide folate* (folic acid and Metafolin®) and other selected nutrients; and Femibion 2; 3 also provide DHA**.

WARNINGS: Femibion 3 should not be taken during the first trimester of pregnancy because of its vitamin A content.
*Supplemental intake of folic acid increases maternal folate level. A low maternal folate level is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects in the developing fetus. Therefore, it is recommended that women take 400 μg of supplemental folic acid daily for a period of at least one month before conception and up to three months afterward. There are many risk factors in the development of neural tube defects. Alteration of a single factor may or may not have a beneficial effect. Folate also contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy.
**Maternal intake of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) contributes to normal brain and eye development of the fetus and breastfed infant. Beneficial effects are obtained with a daily intake of 200 mg of DHA, in addition to the recommended daily intake of 250 mg of omega-3 fatty acids for adults (DHA + EPA).
