Vitamin C deficiency  in your Pregnancy...2
Posted in 2015

The recent findings reiterate the importance of pregnant women getting enough vitamin C while pregnant, and show that when fetal brain damage is already in effect, it is impossible to reverse it, even if vitamin C is given to the baby after he/she is born. 

The experts analyzed guinea pigs for the purpose of their study. When the vitamin C deficient guinea pig pups were born, the researchers placed them in two separate groups. One of the groups was given vitamin C supplements. The experts found that after two months, there was no improvement in the guinea pigs that were given the supplements. 

Now, the experts are setting out to determine at what point in the pregnancy vitamin C deficiency affects the development of fetal brains. Early findings indicate that the damage is done very early in the pregnancy, because the fetuses were analyzed during the second and third trimesters. The researchers hope that they can eventually use population trials to highlight the problem among humans, not just guinea pigs. 

Lykkesfeldt continued:

"People with low economic status who eat poorly - and perhaps also smoke - often suffer from vitamin C deficiency. Comparatively speaking, their children risk being born with a poorly developed memory potential. These children may encounter learning problems, and seen in a societal context, history repeats itself because these children find it more difficult to escape the environment into which they are born."
