Dietary supplement protects against pre-eclampsia

20th May 2011

A study in the British Medical Journal has indicated that a dietary supplement given to pregnant women at high risk of pre-eclampsia can reduce the likelihood of the disease occurring.

Researchers say that the presence of an amino acid and antioxidant vitamins in the supplement helps to combat abnormally high blood pressure, though it has been acknowledged that more research is needed into the subject. Pre-eclampsia is a serious condition where abnormally high blood pressure and other problems develop during pregnancy.
