Are multiple micronutrient supplements superior to the traditional iron-folic acid supplements taken during pregnancy?

agosto 04, 2020

It is common in low- and middle-income countries for women to experience micronutrient deficiencies as a result of poor diet. This becomes a particularly acute issue in pregnancy due to an increase in the nutrient requirements of both mother and fetus.
