Vitamin E is dangerous during pregnancy

Baby Health Add comments

Many doctors advise pregnant women to be sure to take vitamin E. However, recent studies indicate that future mothers should better refuse from this vitamin.

Specialists believe that taking vitamin E during pregnancy is the cause of a baby’s heart problems.

They surveyed 276 women whose children had problems with heart at birth, and 324 women whose children were born perfectly healthy.

It was found that women whose children were born with heart defects, consumed a large dose of vitamin E during pregnancy, than others.

The study showed that children of women who, during the first two months of pregnancy took more than 14.9 mg of vitamin E per day, were born with congenital heart defects 9 times more often.

Recall that the recommended dose of vitamin E for an adult woman is considered to be 20 mg per day.
