vitamin B3

When those two little red lines pop up on a pregnancy test, it does not take long for most mothers to shift into full ‘operation healthy pregnancy’ mode. The standard list of things to do to shift the odds in your favor of having a healthy baby have not changed much over the decades and it's rare that a new recommendation gets added. However, a new study may do just that - adding take vitamin B3 (also called niacin) to the list.  It is rare that an entire story gets neatly wrapped up in one paper, but that is the case with this new report in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Many people take multivitamins "just to be safe." That may not be a good idea, and now a new paper suggests that people who consume too much vitamin B3 might be at higher risk of developing eczema.
