Research that was published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation suggests that sufficient intake of vitamin C may prevent late-term miscarriage and increase early survival rates in infants.
Using a mouse model, researchers examined the effect of the antioxidant and a protein that controls its levels in the body and found that absorption of vitamin C in the kidneys appeared to reduce risk of perinatal death.
While pregnant women should always consult with their doctor before taking any new medications or vitamins, the results of the study suggest that vitamin C supplementation may promote fetal health.
The National Institutes of Health reports that vitamin C is critical in tissue growth and repair processes. Also, as with other antioxidants, the nutrient helps eliminate disease-causing free radicals in the body.
