Do Folic Acid Supplements Harm a Child's Cognitive Development?

Folic acid supplements during pregnancy are important to prevent neural tube defects and allow for normal brain development. However, researchers determine whether folic acid over a certain level could be associated with lower levels of cognitive development in children.

Folic acid supplements have been recommended for pregnant women and previous studies have confirmed their necessity for the baby’s well-being and development. Folic acid, also referred to as vitamin B9, is important for cell division and fusing together amino acids and DNA. Furthermore, it is important for forming red blood cells which are needed for fetal tissue and blood volume. Also, folic acid supplements help with the development of the spine, brain, and skull of the baby and can prevent serious neural tube or birth defects in the spinal cord.It can be found in some foods and can be taken as a multivitamin supplement. However, recent studies show that there is a certain tolerable level of folic acid supplement dosages and too high of a dosage can cause a reverse reaction where it can affect the cognitive development in children.

Breastmilk = perfect nutrition (no matter what mom eats!)

And yes, 6 months is a good time to start solids. You can skip cereal as it has no nutritional value. Go with fruit

Is taking multivitamin supplements accually bad for your health?

I am just wondering if taking supplements are accually bad for your health in long term useage.

Frank, can you post a link to some of these multiple studies that suggest Vit C suppresses the immune system??

I'd like to evaluate them, because everything I've read (and I've read extensively) suggests quite the opposite.

I take a multivitamin because I have unstable iron levels and don't eat enough sometimes. It's been a benefit to me and I feel more energetic, and my doctor has never mentioned the possibility of harm. That is, make sure you are consulting a doctor and

The research is clear that unless someone has an unusual deficiency (seen in third-world countries or first-world eating disorders), supplementing many vitamins has been shown to not improve health. Excessive doses (often practiced by people who believe
