Essential Oils and Pregnancy
Supplements of Omega 3 oils during pregnancy may reduce the risk of food allergies and eczema in children, according to a new study from Sweden. The occurrence of eczema and food allergies was significantly lower in infants of mothers receiving the fish oil supplements during pregnancy and the early months of breast feeding compared to placebo, according to findings published in the journal of ACTA Paediatrica.
“This randomized placebo controlled double blind study shows that omega 3 supplementation during pregnancy and lactation may reduce the risk of developing allergic sensitization to the egg, IG E-associated eczema and food allergy during the first year of life,” wrote the study authors, led by Catrin Furuhjelm from Linkoping University.
