Vitamin D improves birth outcomes

In a recent study, 1,064 pregnant women between the ages of 18 and 45 who later gave birth to a single child were offered free vitamin D supplements.

Women who took vitamin D and achieved levels of 40 ng/mL were 62 percent less likely to have a preterm birth compared to women not taking vitamin D whose levels were below 20 ng/mL.
