Preeclampsia and vitamin D

Vitamin D deficient women are at a higher risk of developing severe preeclampsia during the first 26 weeks of pregnancy gestation. Preeclampsia is potentially life-threatening disorder that happens with an increase in blood pressure along with elevated protein in the urine. Vitamin D is critical for bone health, immune function, cancer prevention, strong muscles, heart disease prevention, cold and flu prevention and so much more. If you are already healthy you need about 600-800IU a day. If you are deficient and are sick, it will take a lot more than that to catch up. Vitamin D is fat-soluble so you can dose a whole week’s-worth once a week if you like. Always avoid GMO soybean oil in vitamin D products.
