Mom's Vitamin D Status During Pregnancy and its Effects on the Child

A study looking into the consequences to children born to vitamin D deficient mothers has given more weight to the need for vitamin D supplementation (as if there wasn't already enough).

This study found that exposure to low vitamin D concentrations in utero was associated with less muscle mass and higher insulin resistence in children.

In my opinion, I feel pregnant women should supplement with at least 2000 IU (50 mcg) daily of vitamin D3. I also highly recommend vitamin K2 as an excellent complementary nutrient.
