MORNING SICKNESS CURES-Vitamin B6 at the Top of the List!!Contact Us
Amazingly 50-90% of pregnant women get mild to severe morning sickness in their first trimester.
Luckily, studies began back in the 1940's, examining ways to stave off the nausea and vomiting.
They turned to vitamins for the answer and found Vitamin B6.
How to Help Morning Sickness
A more recent study conduced at the University of Iowa School of Medicine in Iowa City discovered that pregnant women who took 25 mg of Vitamin B6 every 8 hours had less incidence vomiting and nausea during the day.
Even only 10 mg/hr of Vitamin B6 worked at dropping the onset of sickness all day.
The vitamin is safe, with no risk to the mother or any chance of birth defects at doses as high as 25 mg/hr.

So far there is no a clear understanding to what causes morning sickness.
Their best guess is the rise in hormonal levels during pregnancy.
Morning sickness cures can encompass drugs as well.
During my second pregnancy I had horrible nausea and found it difficult to walk.
I'd get dizzy easily.
My doctor proscribed Benedictine, it worked.
However, if I had known Vitamin B6 worked as well.
I would never have taken a drug.
Although, it was many years ago, I can still see me heading for the bathroom minutes after my husband started cooking breakfast.
I couldn't eat sausage or look a a can of Pepsi for years later.
Dr. Jennifer Niebyl of the Iowa School of Medicine recommends taking 10-25 mg tablets of Vitamin B6 before getting out of bed in the morning.
Take no more than 75 mg/day.
Breaking the doses up into 3 consumptions a day, or once every 8 hours.
