So you should have it again if you liked it fried because it's very healthy and rich in folic acid.

I am new to the SB community, trying to find out as much as I can because friend's daughter has it. What is the benefit of folic acid on SB? Does it improve the symptoms in a significant way?

Default Folic acid and neural tube defects

Folic acid can reduce the risk of neural tube defect (NTDs) such as spina bifida and anencephaly by as much as 70%. NTDs happen in the first four weeks after conception, therefore it is recommended that women who can become pregnant take a multivitamin containing at least 0.4 mg of folic acid every day. A diet rich in vitamins and minerals along with a healthy diet containing foods high in folate cannot supply all the daily folic acid that you need. That is why it is important to take a folic acid supplement.

Default Spinach

Everyone should include a lot of leafy greens in their diet by habit.
Iron deficiency can cause just as many development problems as folic acid deficiency.
Magnesium deficiency also.
Take your prenatals. Some women can't stomach them, but I can't stress enough how bad your baby can be severely injured without these vitamins.

I believe that taking some very enriching food like beans and greens should certainly go a long way in boosting the folic level content in an individual and just like a couple of us would agree the folic acid level in the body of the child is very important.
