Vitamins: Good or Bad?
Iron is vital to the growth and brain development of a baby, and he or she will tap into the existing iron supply of its mother to furnish their own need. If an expectant mother is deprived of iron long enough, she can become anemic: a condition very dangerous to the mother and child alike. It is imperative for a mother to increase her vitamin intake during pregnancy, as most of the nutrients she consumes will go the mental and physical health of her unborn child. With liquid iron supplements , mothers are finding an alternative option to typical anemic treatments.

Vitamins & Minerals For Hair That’s Healthier, Stronger And Shinier
(All we knew is that the edible versions of our favorite stone-age characters would somehow make us big and strong). Now that we’re older and wiser, we’ve switched Pebbles out for biotin and prenatal vitamins in hopes of growing healthier, stronger and shinier hair . But is it really working? According to Dr. Melissa Piliang , a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic, we shouldn’t be too quick to assume that vitamins are the be-all and end-all for hair loss, brittleness and dullness. “One of the biggest misconceptions is that vitamins will help with these problems, but in fact, they may be linked to internal issues stemming from the thyroid or chronic anemia,” she explained. “Daily multivitamins or prenatal supplements help to fill gaps found in our diets,” said Dr.
