Prenatal Vitamins - Important for Healthy Pregnancies
Vitamins Vital for Pregnancy - Prenatals
Vitamins deliver healthier babies. The first few weeks of pregnancy are especially crucial to the developing embryo. Yet many women only begin to eat right and take necessary vitamin supplements once they know they are pregnant. This is weeks or even months too late. We all know that nutrition needs rise during pregnancy. Even the RDA's are higher. As we know, many of us eat really poor diets in general. In an attempt to "get all the nutrition they need from a balanced diet" while "eating for two," we tend to eat more of that same poor diet. Our modern diet of highly refined and highly processed food, with chemical additives, is mostly nutritionally deficient.
Researchers decades ago show a direct connection between some of the nutrients found in prenatal vitamins and increased chances for healthy pregnancy.
For example, Vitamin C ( L-Ascorbic Acid) in fact helps hold a healthy pregnancy right from the start. Dr. Lendon Smith, ("The Children's Doctor"), is quoted as saying:
"Vitamin C is our best defense and everyone should be on this one even before birth. Three thousand mgs daily for the pregnant woman is a start. The baby should get 100 mg per day per month of age."
Good prenatal vitamins are made to ensure that the mother's nutrient level is not depleted during a taxing pregnancy, also to ensure the healthy growth of the baby.
We always say that Vitamins are never meant to replace a healthy diet with fruits, vegetables and healthy proteins.
Most vitamins in fresh food are absorbed more efficiently by the body ( especially organic juice) , than those found in supplements (with some exceptions). But we have to also bear in mind that some fresh food ( Like some Corn and Soy) are not what they used to be.
GMOs as a cause
In 2008, Austrian Health Ministers presented research showing how fertility rates have dropped sharply since the introduction of GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Countless studies on animals have shown that reproductive systems are damaged when GMOs are ingested.
Testing showed High rates of infertility, premature births, and mortality rates. GMOs have allowed us to make cheap food and feed massive populations, but messing with the original design is now taking its toll, particularly with fertility, and other scary affects.
Genetically engineered foods are now coming out as a major contributor of certain diseases, especially among children. Gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, inflammatory diseases, and infertility are just some of the problems implicated in humans, pets, livestock, and lab animals that eat genetically modified soybeans and corn.
Overall what you eat, age, genetics, and biology have an impact on fertility, but so do lifestyle factors, like being significantly overweight, stress and sleeping patterns, these also affect fertility by creating a hormone imbalances and nutrient deficiencies.
Don't rule out Male infertility. A Man’s fertility is also linked with his hormone health. Changes in virility, often governed by hormones, could indicate issues with fertility.
If you are a male, that feels like you could use a boost to your system, consider a natural men's health formulation like Ultra Tribido.
