Do You Want To Conceive ? Try Vitamins!

Nov 15, 2007
In spite of the tall claims of advertisement campaigns, vitamins available in the market do not increase the possibility of conception. It is not as if, vitamins do not exist for conception. In the pre pregnancy period, it is always advisable to have a wholesome diet, prenatal vitamins, and carry out all the necessary things that you would do if you were pregnant. Most specialists and doctors strongly recommend consumption of prenatal supplements, right from the time the decision to start to conceive a child has been taken.

Let us discuss some commonly used vitamins from the getting pregnant family. First, folic acid is a vital vitamin for every woman, particularly for women who are pregnant by now or attempting to conceive. Consumption of a regular dosage of folic acid before conceiving is a fine way of getting your body used to the compound, thereby building the ideal short-term dwelling place for your baby. Studies indicate that maintaining sufficient folic acid supplies in the body helps lessen the threat of neural tube abnormalities, by about 70%, in still to be born children. Therefore, it is quite simple to grasp why folic acid qualifies as an essential component of pre pregnancy care.

Iron is another significant member of the vital vitamins family, recommended for conceiving. All through the pregnancy, iron is indispensable and more often than not, most women are unable to receive sufficient doses of iron from only the food that they consume. Iron has a major influence on blood production, and because women tend to produce more blood during pregnancy, sufficient iron intake is important. Taking iron supplements assists in preventing pregnant women from becoming anemic, an iron deficiency, during pregnancy. Usually the iron requirement of a woman goes up by fifty percent, when she is with child.

There are some essential vitamins and nutrients for conceiving, which cannot be located in prenatal vitamins. Now, calcium can be located in prenatal vitamins, although it is not present in adequate quantities. A majority of prenatal vitamins contain 100 to 200 mg of calcium. Taking into account that women require about 1000 mg of calcium daily, regardless of them having conceived or not, there is a vital need to source it from the food they consume. All through the pregnancy, it is vital to replace calcium taken from the bones to sustain the growing child. Essential fatty acids, too, are not present in the prenatal vitamins. These help in the growth of the child's brain, nerve system, and eyes. Fish such as salmon, is certainly an excellent source of essential fatty acids.

Though no vitamins for conceiving exist, as such, it is a always a great idea to prime the body for the forthcoming pregnancy test by eating healthy food and consuming prenatal vitamins of excellent quality.
