Vitamin D during pregnancy improves offspring bone health


A new study, published in JAMA Pediatrics, found that high-dose vitamin D supplementation during pregnancy significantly improved bone health in children.

The researchers did a prespecified analysis of a double-blinded, randomized clinical trial to evaluate the effects of a 7-fold increase intake of vitamin D during pregnancy on offspring bone health.

When compared with the regular dose, researchers found that the effects were most significant in children with vitamin D-deficient mothers.
