How it works:
Recent studies reveal that the iodine status of Australian and New Zealand pregnant women appears to be declining and inadequate iodine intake is re-emerging as a widespread problem in the general population.
Optimising iodine levels before pregnancy can take up to 5 months. Sufficient iodine levels are essential for good health for pre-conception, pregnancy and into childhood.
Low levels of folic acid are strongly linked with an increased risk of neural tube defects. Supplementation with 400-500mcg of folic acid daily is recommended for healthy development of the foetus.
