Pregnant Women Advised to Get More Vitamin D

British researchers have concluded pregnant women should be advised to take vitamin D, saying that there is a “strong case” to support the vitamin’s benefits.

The researchers wrote in the British Journal of Nutrition that vitamin D will benefit pregnant women and reduce the risk of diseases such as infantile hypocalcaemia and rickets.

NutraIngredients reports:

“[The researchers] said the UK was the only country in 31 that did not officially recommend vitamin D ...  the UK was the only one of 31 countries examined which did not recommend that women of reproductive age took a vitamin D supplement.”
