VitaminE Deficiency linked to increased Risk of Miscarriage

Maternal vitamin E status in the first trimester may influence risk of early pregnancy loss

Team @JohnsHopkinsSPH found that maternal vitamin E status in the first trimester may influence risk of early pregnancy loss.

Vitamin E is found in a variety of foods. It is required for the proper function of many organs in the body. It works as an antioxidant, which means it helps to slow down processes that damage cells.

Researchers from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found that pregnant women in Bangladesh with low levels of the most common form of vitamin E are nearly twice as likely to have a miscarriage than those with adequate levels of the vitamin in their blood.

  1. Good article. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies are one of the many culprits as we read regularly online and off.

    Wish everyone health and longevity – learn from Dr. Wallach talking about what he has discovered. I have benefited with his advice.
