Expecting Moms Can Protect


Against Autism Mothers that take folic acid or multivitamins before and during


pregnancy can significantly lower a child’s risk of autism, according to the latest research published in theJournal of the American Medical Association Psychiatry.


Take Magnesium to Metabolize


Vitamin D Vitamin D can’t be metabolized without sufficient magnesium levels. Thus, it remains stored and inactive for as many as 50 percent of Americans on nutrient-poor diets, reports a research review in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association. “Without magnesium, vitamin D is not really useful or safe,” says study co- author Mohammed S. Razzaque, Ph.D., a professor of pathology at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, in Erie, Pennsylvania. As a consequence, taking


vitamin D supplements can increase a person’s calcium and phosphate levels, even if they remain vitamin D deficient, he explains; and that can lead to vascular calcification if their magnesium levels aren’t sufficient. The magnesium factor may ex-


plain why vitamin D supplementation doesn’t necessarily help vitamin D deficiency-related disorders such as skeletal deformities, cardiovascular diseases and metabolic syndrome. Natural sources of magnesium in- clude almonds, cashews and other nuts, bananas, beans, broccoli, brown rice, egg yolks, fish oil, green vegetables, mushrooms, oatmeal, soybeans, sweet corn, tofu, whole grains, and pumpkin, sesame, sun- flower and flax seeds.


Researchers from Canada, Israel and the School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, in New York City, studied 45,300 children, at the age of 10 on average, correlating children’s autism spectrum diagnoses with records of


mothers’ supplementation. They found that women that took the


supplements prior to pregnancy were 61 percent less likely to have a child diagnosed with autism. Taking supplements during pregnancy was linked to a 73 percent reduced risk. The overall likelihood of autism was 1.3 percent of the children.
