10 Feb Pregnant? Here’s a List of Foods that Contain Vitamin B3 (Niacin)
Can you believe it!? A breakthrough in potentially preventing recurrent miscarriages has been discovered and the key can be found in a jar of one of Australia’s national treasures, Vegemite.
Ed’s note – The Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute has since released new information on this topic. Read it here.
Miscarriage is one of the biggest concerns for women who are expecting. But thanks to Professor Sally Dunwoodie and her team from the Victor Chang Cardiac Research, they have discovered that recurrent miscarriages may be able to be avoided by ensuring maternal B3 AKA Niacin levels are optimised.
You can read all about it here.
Here are some foods that contain Vitamin B3 Niacin that might aid in helping baby’s development and strengthen NAD molecules: (Notice all the Aussie foods?)
- Vegemite! The National treasure that keeps giving!
- Green vegetables; asparagus, peas, brussel sprouts, bok choy, kale, parsley, cabbage
- Turkey + chicken breast
- Grass-fed beef
- Sunflower seeds
- Wheat bran
- Red kidney beans
- Dried and frozen peaches
- Grapefruit and orange juice
- Muesli, natural or toasted
- Sundried tomatoes
- Cocoa powder
- Tahini (ground sesame seeds)
By boosting expecting mother’s B3 levels, it can potentially help treat deficiencies in Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) – one of the most important molecules in all living cells that is essential for energy production and DNA repair.
Not only could this miracle vitamin potentially help to prevent multiple miscarriages but it may also reduce some birth defects. We couldn’t be more thankful for this amazing breakthrough!
