Could fish oils help prevent miscarriages? 20 Jan 2019
The bacteria, Fusobacterium nucleatum lives in the mouth. However in pregnant women the hormonal changes can cause their gums to bleed, which allows the bacteria to spead through the body. Fuscobacterium nucleatum can tavel to the uterus where it causes infection in the placenta. Infection and inflammation in the placenta is responsible for miscarriage and stillbirths say researchers at Columbia University Irving Medical Center.
Omega-3 fish oils could reduce the rate of preterm babies and miscarriages by up to 30 percent. Omega-3 oils have anti-inflamatory properties and they block bacteria growth that is associated with 10% to 30% of preterms biths.
The oils are already recommended for pregant women, but researches estimate the amount should be higher than the daily recommended dose to protect against infection.
I would recommend seeing a nutritionalist before taking higher doeses of any Omega 3 oils.
