The most important supplements to consider for pregnancy include vitamin B6 and vitamin B12, which are vital for fetal development, according to a new study.
Researchers at Harvard Medical School found that the B vitamins and B12 in infant formula and a pregnant woman’s daily intake of vitamin B2 were the best predictors of the child’s IQ scores.
The study looked at nearly 200,000 children in the United States between 2007 and 2016.
Researchers found that mothers with the highest daily B vitamins had a 2.3-point higher chance of having a child with a high IQ, the New York Times reported.
The researchers also found that children with higher B vitamins also had lower IQ scores and were more likely to be obese, have low IQs and have autism.
The researchers also noted that B vitamins may also help prevent certain health conditions, such as hypertension and diabetes.
The findings have not been replicated by other studies.
However, the findings are encouraging, according a report in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Researchers say that the new study adds to growing evidence that the importance of prenatal vitamins is growing, and it’s a reminder that they need to take the right supplements for the right baby, according the paper.
