Do you need iron and folic acid?

Iron and folic acid are essential nutrients for the human body throughout life.



Iron deficiency is the most common nutritional deficiency, which is responsible for 50% of cases of anemia.

One in two women aged 18-50 years old is iron deficient. A common cause is increased menstrual blood loss combined with reduced dietary iron intake.

In addition, during pregnancy, iron requirements increase significantly as do those of folic acid.

Iron is associated with the normal development of the fetus and the preparation of the mother for childbirth, while folate is involved in the formation of RNA and DNA which makes it essential during periods of rapid growth.

Simultaneous iron and folic acid deficiency is also frequently observed in elderly people...

due to reduced intake or absorption or other causes. In this case, low levels of folic acid have been associated with an increase in the blood of a substance called homocysteine, which is dangerous for the heart.

The treatment is simple iron supplementation.

In practice, however, iron supplements often have unpleasant side effects: nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, diarrhea or constipation, etc., and many patients discontinue treatment. In addition, in some patients, the effectiveness of these preparations may be limited due to reduced absorption of iron by the body.
