Vitamins prevent birth defects, says research

This has been known for a long time, but it doesn't hurt to hear a reminder from time to time: vitamins prevent birth defects. Sadly, most expectant mothers don't pursue optimum nutrition, so they inevitably suffer from nutritional deficiencies.

The solution? Make vitamins and nutritional supplements freely available to pregnant women. If you enjoy this article, you may also be interested in an article entitled 'Mandatory mental health screening program would dose pregnant women with prescription drugs that cause birth defects.'


A birth defect intervention project began on Tuesday in North China's Shanxi Province, targeting a reduction in the high rate of birth defects in some parts of the province, according to Friday's China Daily.

An ample vitamin supply has been shown by scientists to be important to proper embryonic development, which can reduce the rate of some birth defects and improve the quality of births.

"However, previous surveys show the population in Shanxi Province has a prominently lower acquirement rate of vitamins than the national average," said Professor Zheng Xiaoying, director of the Institute of Population Research at Peking University/WHO Collaborating Centre.

The nutrients to be added will be provided by various international organizations, said Chen Chunming with the International Life Science Institute's branch in Beijing.


Absorption of Liquid Vitamins

"Liquids, aside from offering the obvious benefit of being easy to swallow, have another very important trait. According to the Physicians Desk Reference,

Liquid is absorbed at a 98% rate, versus

Only 10 – 20% in hard capsules or tablet forms.

This very important distinction is extraordinarily important. It is not uncommon to have [hard] capsules pass right through the body in a way that the product name is still visible after the pill has left the body completely. This does not happen with liquids, as they are absorbed completely and are not wasted."

The National Advisory Board states that:

'100 mg consumed in tablet form translates to a minute stabilized 8.3 mg or 8.3% concentrated in the blood.'

This is simply not the case with liquids!"

"Pills and capsules may cost less, but in reality you get far less absorption for your money. No wonder they cost less!

Liquids are fast--you do not even have to wait for them to dissolve. They start working as soon as you swallow and

Many have very pleasant flavors."
