Vitamin B12 Promotes Healthy Babies

Eggs are a good source of vitamin B12A recent study has showed another important reason to maintain high levels of vitamin B-12.

Pregnant women who don’t get enough vitamin B-12 may have a greater risk of delivering a baby with birth defect, according to the study published in the March issue of Pediatrics.

The lack of vitamin B-12 in the human system may cause several health issues, including anemia, stress and depression.

Women should be extra careful as they may face a different problem particularly if they plan to have babies.

In the study of nearly 1,200 women, the results showed that women with the lowest B-12 levels were five times as likely to have a baby with a neural tube defect compared with mothers with the highest levels.

People should be able to get enough vitamin B-12 from their diet. Rich sources of B-12 include many animal foods, such as meat, cheese, eggs, fish and milk.

However, vegetarians could be lacking this important vitamin because vegan sources do not provide sufficient quantities of B-12. Vegans could become deficient after many years of low intake of B-12.

In addition, women with intestinal problems may also struggle to absorb nutrients and could have vitamin deficiency.

The solution may be pretty simple: take a vitamin B12 supplement, B-Complex or a multi-vitamin. Most products supply significant amounts of vitamin B-12 and can boost your energy levels as well.
