Earlier research hag underlined the significance of high Vitamin D for pregnant women.
Researchers recommend that getting at least fifteen minutes of sunlight a day is very important in maintaining body's levels of vitamin D. It is especially important for pregnant women.
Pregnant women with elevated levels of vitamin d may have a reduced risk of developing autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS).
Researchers also discovered that women with increased levels of vitamin D in their blood experienced a 61 percent lower risk of developing MS, though this protection did not extend to the child.
"In our study, pregnant women and women in general had a lower risk for MS with higher levels of the vitamin, as expected," explained study author Jonatan Salzer, M.D., a physician with Umeå University in Sweden.
"Since we found no protective effect on the baby for women with higher levels of vitamin D in early pregnancy, our study suggests the protective effect may start later in pregnancy and beyond," said Salzer."
