There is no evidence to confirm that taking fish oil during pregnancy reduces the risk of post-natal depression, according to a new study from the University of Adelaide. Professor Maria Makrides, who is Professor of Human Nutrition at the University of Adelaide and Deputy Director of the Women`s and Children`s Health Research Institute, said that the results also contradict existing recommendations that fish oil capsules taken in pregnancy help newborn babies` language and cognitive development. Over a five-year study wherein women were half the women in the latter stages of pregnancy were given fish oil capsules and the other half vegetable oil capsules, the team found no significant difference in either the incidence of post-natal depression or neuro developmental outcomes of their children.
The study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. ANI
