Vitamin C deficiency in your Pregnancy...1
Posted in 2015

Vitamin C deficiency among pregnant women can result in serious health complications in the fetus' brain. Although women can make a conscious effort to take vitamin C supplements, if damage is already done to the baby's brain, it can not be fixed, according to a new study conducted by researchers at the University of Copenhagen and published in PLOS ONE

According to the recent report, between 10 and 20% of all adults in the developed world do not get enough vitamin C, and pregnant women should make sure they are getting enough of this vitamin. 

Professor Jens Lykkesfeldt, the lead scientist involved in the study, said, "Even marginal vitamin C deficiency in the mother stunts the fetal hippocampus, the important memory center, by 10-15 percent, preventing the brain from optimal development."

Lykkesfeldt continued: 

"We used to think that the mother could protect the baby. Ordinarily there is selective transport from mother to fetus of the substances the baby needs during pregnancy. However, it now appears that the transport is not sufficient in the case of vitamin C deficiency. Therefore it is extremely important to draw attention to this problem, which potentially can have serious consequences for the children affected."
