Vitamin Fact

Sneaky Multi-Vitamins.

Ladies, everyday, off the shelf  multi-vits are not suitable during pregnancy. You may think you're doing your baby a favour by taking vitamin supplements but you could be doing a lot more harm than good.

Did you know that taking vitamin supplements containing high doses of vitamin A (greater than 10,000 international units per day (1 IU = 0.3 mcg ) has been shown in studies to be harmful to the developing fetus and should be avoided.

So always check the label. To avoid any mishaps it is best to take vitamins designed especially for pregnancy, which are easily accessible.

Also, I'm sorry to all you offal fans but high vitamin A intake from eating liver should also be avoided during pregnancy.
