Vitamin D duirng pregnancy

Whether you are pregnant or not, Vitamin D is very important for health.  Since women are outside less during the colder months, It is especially important to continue taking your vitamins during winter and along with it your calcium too.  The best place to get Vitamin D is from the sun, but the lack of sunlight and exposure to the sunlight can prevent everyone from getting enough vitamin D.

This vitamin is incredibly important as it helps the body absorb other minerals better, like calcium. These two things work together, but lack of natural sunlight can prohibit the two from working together. Extensive research supports Vitamin D's  role in immune function, healthy cell division and bone health. Vitamin D is necessary for the absorption and metabolism of calcium and phosphorus. Many studies are finding a connection between low serum vitamin D levels and an increased risk of certain types of cancers, autoimmune disease, neurological disease, insulin resistance, and cardiovascular disease. Vitamin D deficiency may be related to an increase in risk of Pre-eclampsia ( Increased Blood pressure and proteins in the urine) 

Taking an extra vitamin can help. Pregnant women are more prone to develop osteoporosis. The reason for that is that the baby and placenta are sucking various vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids to support the growing baby.
