The Latest News About Miscarriage

Folate

A study of nearly 1,500 Swedish women found that those with the lowest levels of folate (a nutrient that also helps prevent neural-tube defects) had a 50 percent higher chance of having a miscarriage. Researchers note this B vitamin is crucial for proper cell growth and embryo development. Women can easily reach the government recommendation of 400mcg a day by taking a prenatal vitamin or by eating folate-fortified breakfast cereals or other grains and leafy greens.
