In recent years, preeclampsia has become a much more common evil among pregnant women and it is very risky for both the baby and the mother… The lack of vitamin D worsens this scenario, that is how important it is.

THAT DURING YOUR PREGNANCY YOU DO NOT LACK VITAMIN D

Deficiency of this vitamin is also a further risk factor in addition to restricted intrauterine growth and gestational diabetes, as well as deficiencies associated with fetal and neonatal development.

Vitamin D is related to various physiological processes in our bodies, metabolic, endocrine and immunological. Some studies suggest that its deficiency is linked to the development of tumors.

VITAMIN D BENEFITS

This vitamin can help…

  • Prevent diseases like rickets
  • Eliminate added risk factors in metabolic diseases such as type 2 diabetes
  • Avoid immune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis
  • Avoid the development of some malignant neoplasms such as cancer of the breast, colon or pancreas.

WHERE TO FIND VITAMIN D

Not many foods contain vitamin D naturally, so many are enriched by chemical processes.

Fatty fish such as tuna, sardines, and salmon are considered very good sources of vitamin D. To a much lesser extent is egg yolk and some mushrooms.

Remember that this vitamin is produced in the body when the sun touches the skin, so that taking regular sunbaths is healthy, always with sunscreen.
