|Vitamin B12 in pregnancy could lead to quieter babies: Study|
|Women who eat a diet rich in vitamin B-12, during the first three months of their pregnancy are up to eight times more likely to have babies who cry less, according to a new study published in the journal Early Human Development. The babies of mothers whose blood contained the least amount of B12 at the three-month test were up to eight times more likely to cry for prolonged periods than those with the highest levels.The sleep hormone melatoninmay not be released fully causing longer crying episodes than exhibited by babies whose mothers had high levels of B12. Also a lack of B12 may reduce the brain’s production of myelin, which protects nerve cells, leading to more sleeplessness.Occurring naturally in red meat, fish and dairy products, vitamin B12 is known to help the development of the brain and nervous system in unborn children. In later life, the vitamin also helps prevent dementia, heart disease and fertility problems.
