Is your prenatal vitamin enough?
The medical community has set a standard for expectant mothers to follow and the best example of that is the accepted routine of taking prenatal vitamins.
We can all agree that vitamins are meant to help our body improve day to day functions. Different vitamins are meant to improve every separate organ system in our body from immunity, to mental function, to energy, to blood count and the list goes on and on.
However, when it comes to pregnancy there is a strict guideline to follow regarding your vitamin supplements and that is solidified in the prenatal vitamins found at every store.
Vitamin D deficiency in the general population.
Vitamin D is one of the most important vitamins in your body. Every cell in your body has a receptor for vitamin D and it is considered more of a pro-hormone than a vitamin. Its function may be as important as such hormones as Estrogen or Progesterone.
The body requires routine sun exposure for production of Vitamin D in the skin. However, with the modern work schedule, prevalent use of sun blocks and poor nutritional status the overall vitamin D deficiency in some areas of the United States can reach up to 50% during the winter months. The problem with this is that a newborn is very much dependent on the mother’s womb and breast milk as its source of vitamin D before and after birth. Low vitamin D levels in the mother and child have been associated with many diseases in children such as ADHD.
Prenatal vitamins follow a strict guideline, but is it enough?
When a mother takes her prenatal vitamins, it is a process that should make the mother and the physician feel at ease that her vitamin needs have been met.
However, the reality is very different. Standard prenatal vitamins usually have a vitamin D dose of 400IU. New studies are finding that these doses may be too low, and expectant mothers need to be supplemented by much higher daily doses.
It is best to obtain your actual blood levels of vitamins, especially vitamin D, and discuss results with your doctor prior to starting on a prenatal regimen. A very close relationship with your gynecologist will best guide your vitamin needs during this important time in your life.
