  • Vitamin Tips:
    -Do not take any vitamins/supplements that you really do not need to take - talk with your physician for advice on this.
    -A proper diet can eliminate the need to take vitamins (fruits, vegetables, etc.)
    -Some vitamins need to be taken - for example folic acid 400 mcg daily for all women of child bearing age. This is a crucial vitamin to prevent the occurrence of neural tube defects during pregnancy (spina bifida is an example of a neural tube disorder) in children born of women who do not consume this quantity daily. Again all women of child bearing age (females-----teens through menopause) need this.
