Current Estimate of Vitamin D’s Influence on Fertility and Miscarriage Rate

We have reviewed many previous studies on the why the hormone referred to as Vitamin D is so important to pregnancy. However, a new analysis resulted in a news release from the National Institute of Health. Simply put they stated the following findings:

  • Women with adequate vitamin D levels were 10% more likely to become pregnant
  • Pregnant women with sufficient vitamin D were 15% more likely to have a live birth

Simply put, now that we fully appreciate that vitamin D is a hormone produced in our skin—it makes even more sense that women insure that they have sufficient levels during their reproductive years.

 

If you’ve never had your levels tested, consider consulting your provider to discuss this simple life hack.

Shine on,
