FOLIC ACID, A SO VERY IMPORTANT PART OF PRECONCEPTION AND PREGNANCY

Women who are pregnant or might become pregnant should take folic acid to prevent miscarriage and “neural tube defects,” birth defects such as spina bifida that... occur when the fetus’s spine and back do not close during development.

Foods that are naturally high in folate include leafy vegetables (such as spinach, broccoli, and lettuce), okra, asparagus, fruits (such as bananas, melons, and lemons) beans, yeast, mushrooms, meat (such as beef liver and kidney), orange juice, and tomato juice.
