Pil Minyak Ikan Tidak Membantu Kehamilan


Pil minyak ikan

Berlawanan dengan kepercayaan popular, mengambil pil minyak ikan selama hamil tidak melakukan keduanya meningkatkan otak bayi atau menghalang ibu dari depresi postpartum, kajian mengatakan.

Menurut kajian yang diterbitkan dalam Journal of American Medical Association, skor kognitif secara keseluruhan bagi anak-anak yang ibunya manfaat dari asid docosahexaenoic (minyak ikan kaya DHA) hampir identik dengan ibu-ibu yang tidak mengambil pil.

Juga tidak ada variasi besar dalam terjadinya gejala depresi postpartum pada enam bulan pertama antara kedua-dua kumpulan ibu.

Kumpulan kajian menunjukkan bahawa hasil tidak menyokong pengambilan suplemen DHA secara teratur untuk wanita hamil.

Penelitian ini difokuskan pada 2.399 wanita dengan kehamilan tunggal kurang dari 21 minggu di lima rumah sakit bersalin Australia “di kerapkan  untuk rawatan double-blind dengan kapsul yang mengandungi DHA atau minyak sayur sebagai plasebo sampai saat kelahiran,” lapor ABC News.

Dr Emily Oken dari Harvard dan Dr Mandy B. Belfort dari Children’s Hospital di Boston mengatakan dalam sebuah tajuk rencana bersama, “Ini mungkin bahawa n-3 asid lemak tak tepu pada ikan lebih bioaktif atau yang lain yang bermanfaat nutrisi dalam ikan, seperti seperti selenium, vitamin D, dan yodium, juga penting. ”

Namun mereka mencatatkan bahawa kes tersebut harus ditindaklanjuti dalam jangka panjang untuk mengetahui apakah keuntungan dari tambahan DHA muncul bakal muncul  kemudian, seperti di tahun-tahun persekolahan.

Contrary to popular belief, taking fish oil pills during pregnancy does neither boost the infant’s brain nor prevent the mother from postpartum depression, a study says.

According to the study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, overall cognitive scores for those children whose mothers benefited from Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA-rich fish oil) were almost identical with those mothers who did not take the pills.

There was also no major variation in the occurrence of postpartum depression symptoms in the first six months between the two groups of mothers.

The study group points out that the results do not support the consumption of DHA supplements on a regular basis for pregnant women.

The research focused on 2,399 women with single pregnancies of less than 21 weeks in five Australian maternity hospitals “randomized to double-blind treatment with capsules containing DHA or vegetable oil as a placebo up until the time of birth,” ABC News reported.

Dr. Emily Oken of Harvard and Dr. Mandy B. Belfort of Children’s Hospital in Boston said in an accompanying editorial, “It may be that the n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in fish are more bioactive or that other beneficial nutrients within fish, such as selenium, vitamin D, and iodine, are also important.”

They noted however that the case must be followed up in the longer term in order to find out if advantages from extra DHA show up later, such as in the school years.
