Marmite Could Prevent Miscarriage And Birth Defects, Says 'Breakthrough' Study

By taking the dietary supplement vitamin B3 which also known as niacin could have treated (what is vitamin niacin?).

A study at the Victor Chang Institute in Sydney is hailing the effects of B3 and calling their findings "a double breakthrough, as reported by the BBC".

Professor at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute Sally Dunwoodie told Mike Hosking more research needs to be done to determine just how much B3 is needed.

They found that expecting mothers are more likely to lose the baby if they have extremely low levels of a molecule called NAD - or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. The article also reports on studies showing that NAD deficiency in pregnant mice caused pups to be born with severe birth defects and that those defects could be prevented by vitamin B3 supplementation during pregnancy.

But while many pregnant women take dietary supplements, research has shown that up to one third of women in the United States have low levels of vitamin B3 during their pregnancy.

"The promise is that this could significantly reduce the number of miscarriages and babies born with defects".

When you consider that nearly 8 million babies are born each year with a birth defect, this study could have a big global impact in the future.

'After the dietary change, both the miscarriages and birth defects were completely prevented, with all the offspring born perfectly healthy'.

They will also make the release schedules more visible and certain, allowing devs extra time for testing. Kaspersky had also filed complaints with the European Commission and German Federal Cartel Office.

The scientists then removed the two genes associated with these defects from mice, using CRISPR, to see if this would cause birth defects in mice.

Researcher Professor Sally Dunwoodie said the study had identified a major cause of miscarriages as well as heart, spinal, kidney and cleft-palate problems in newborn babies. "It bypasses the genetic problem", she said.

"The Australian population is not considered to be deficient in niacin", she says.

The study provides "no evidence" to support this recommendation, he said.

"The doses used in this research were 10 times the recommended daily doses for supplementation in women".

Dr. Sarah Stock, senior clinical lecturer at the University of Edinburgh who also was not involved in the study, said it is "exciting" in that it increases our understanding of birth defects.

"But, we're not all the same in how we absorb nutrients", she said, adding that body mass index and diabetes can influence how a woman produces NAD.

To that end, the researchers say the next step will be developing a diagnostic test akin to a pregnancy test, sampling either urine or blood, which could easily show which women could be low in NAD.
