Birth Complications May Be Lowered Through The Use Of Vitamins

This article has just been released on press tv, as always do your own research and remember Body Balance Liquid is being used during pregnancy but always check with your doctor before taking any supplements.
A new study says women who take multivitamins around the time of conception are less likely to experience premature birth or deliver a low-birth-weight baby.

Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh, US, found that normal-weight and underweight women who consumed daily multivitamins had a 16 percent lower risk of preterm delivery (before 37 weeks of pregnancy) compared to peers who didn’t take vitamins.

Researchers studied nearly 36,000 pregnant Danish women and their multivitamin use around the time of conception, four weeks before and eight weeks after their last period.

According to the lead author Janet M. Catov, the study could not find the reason why the same association was not seen in over weight mothers.

Regular multivitamin use in the weeks before conception was also associated with a 10 to 20 percent lower birth weight, regardless of mother’s weight while consuming the supplements in the weeks after conception was associated with a 33 percent lower risk.

Since the multivitamin used by the studied mothers contained 200 micrograms of folic acid, researchers believe that the micronutrient might have a significant role in preventing preterm birth.

Previous findings showed that other micronutrients such as zinc, vitamin C and E may also have a role in preventing premature birth.

Despite recent findings, official guidelines do not suggest pregnant women or those who plan to have a baby take daily multivitamins because the supplements may harm the babies.

Studies have shown that tablet form vitamins are not as efficiently absorbed in the body as Liquid Vitamins

    Sorry to bring this here but I dunno where I should leave suggestions? Anyway your pages seems to load slow from time to time and I noticed that you have a few Javascripts in your sourcecode. You should let them load last. After the whole page has loaded. That will greately benefit the ones that don’t have internet with a gazillion mb download line. Thanks! Jennifer.
