Calcium against Hypertension in Pregnancy

Apparently, take a supplement of calcium during pregnancy reduces potential hypertension problems in the MOM. According to the publication in the Cochrane Library, benefit most women are which are more likely to suffer this type of alterations or those having a very low contribution in their diet of this mineral.

Gestational hypertension tends to affect up to 22% of pregnancies and is one of the disorders responsible for about 40,000 deaths per year in the world, threatening the life of the future baby and mother. For this reason, it is very necessary to treat this alteration in order to avoid fatal outcomes.

This conclusion was obtained after reviewing various studies which showed that calcium supplements are important to prevent this type of alterations. Just one daily gram of calcium to reduce by 50% the chance of pre-eclampsia (rise of tension caused by pregnancy) in women at risk, but also it is beneficial for women not presenting any alteration, to reduce possible risk 38%.
Also happens with hypertension during pregnancy, calcium intake comes to reduce up to 30% the chance of it. Calcium brings many benefits for the health of the baby and the mother, it is important to manage daily dose of calcium to the body, this will prevent health problems and the baby may have a proper development.

At the moment these data must be supported by new studies, since until not long ago the College of Obstetricians and gynecologists in the United States denied that calcium could provoke this effect.

Same happens always, always there are contradictions in the medical field, it would be interesting studies thoroughly before determining a verdict. Already there are several occasions in which we have seen as they indicated that a particular product was not advisable or not produced any effect and finally another study showed otherwise.

We will have to wait for that finally more research be carried out to verify that calcium helps reduce the chance of pre-eclampsia / hypertension.
