Folic acid is an important vitamin essential for cell multiplication. Our diet doesn't have the required amount of folic acid. Deficiency causes a specific anomaly called open neural tube defects. Risk is 5 percent. By taking folic acid suresh supplements open neural defects can be prevented. Risk become 0 percent. Better to take till 3 months of pregnancy
