Got Vitamin D?

By KateTietje |

A new study has shown that vitamin D deficiency is highly correlated with gestational diabetes risk.  Not good news for pregnant women, especially given that almost half the women in this study were deficient!

In fact, vitamin D deficiency in pregnancy is actually correlated with many different problems that pregnant women experience, both for themselves and for their babies (including asthma and diabetes!).

Are you getting enough?

With more and more studies coming out all the time about the miracles of vitamin D, it’s crucial that pregnant women in particular are getting enough.  But there’s a lot that many don’t know about vitamin D.  What’s the best source?  Can you get too much?  How do you make sure you’re actually reaping the benefits?

Today, I’m answering all those questions — and more — over at Modern Alternative Mama.  Don’t miss it: Monday Health&Wellness: Vitamin D!

    Why do we have to link to you personal blog for you perspective? Either post here or just write on your personal blog. If I wnated to read Modern Alternative Mama, I’d do so.

    I do agree its important for pregnant women to stay on top keeping their vitamin intake up to par with having to provide for a second little human in their tummys. But I recently came across this article on how supplements may not be as good as most think? Whether in-taking too many vitamins is actually BAD for you or not, it could be a waste of money if your body stops absorbing the extra?
