Preeclampsia and Probiotics

The bottom line is that it seems that probiotics are safe, and even beneficial to take during pregnancy and may have a dramatic effect of lowering the chance of preeclampsia in pregnancy.

You have probably heard about Probiotics, and the great benefits that they can offer us when we take them regularly. Many people reap the benefits of probiotics, which include things like improved digestive function, balanced body processes, and even helping babies with colic! We are just beginning to realize all of the benefits of probiotics at this point. However, now doctors are seeing that probiotics can offer yet another benefit: a reduced risk of preeclampsia in pregnant women. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

What is preeclampsia?

Preeclampsia is a condition that occurs in around one in twenty pregnancies. The condition usually develops at around the 20 week mark, and is marked by an increase in blood pressure. The blood pressure increased is usually followed by sometimes dramatic swelling in the woman’s hands, legs, face and feet. If not dealt with immediately, preeclampsia can turn into toxemia, which can be extremely harmful or even fatal. It is a very dangerous condition that affects many pregnant women, so any way that can reduce the risk to pregnant women is helpful.

How probiotics can help

The most recent study on probiotics and preeclampsia was done on a group of 33,000 Norwegian pregnant women, and followed them throughout their pregnancies. The portion of the group who took probiotics every single day during pregnancy had a lower rate of developing preeclampsia. The risks were lowered by a significant amount too! The study showed that the group that took probiotics daily had a twenty percent lower risk of preeclampsia than the group that did not take probiotics. That is a huge number!

The bottom line

The bottom line is that it seems that probiotics are safe, and even beneficial to take during pregnancy. They have a helpful effect on all sorts of body processes, and are easy to consume in our daily lives. Of course, more research is needed on this subject, but it looks like we are just beginning to figure out all of the benefits of probiotics! If you are interested in increasing your probiotic intake, you can find them in yogurt, keifer, some cheeses, and from fermented food sources. You can also find them as a supplement at your local drug store or health food store. If you have questions about probiotics and how they can help you, ask your doctor for advice or recommendations.

    Hi well me and my partner are trying kinda to have a baby we don’t use
    condoms. And my period came early this month. And we couldn’t figure out
    why. We have intercourse everyday and some times 2 to 3 times a day and
    I had some early pregnancy signs of tender breasts and cramping then
    all of a sudden my period started. I’m 20 so I don’t see the problem.
    Any ideas? Please help:)

     There are some PMS (pre-menstrual syndrome) signs that are similar to pregnancy symptoms such as cramping and breast tenderness. I suggest that you take a home pregnancy test to make sure if you are pregnant or not. If you still have not conceived, don’t worry, there are lots of things you can do to get pregnant faster. You can try using an ovulation prediction kit to help you know when your ovulating days are so that you can boost your chances of getting pregnant.
