The Use Of Preservatives In Vitamins For Pregnancy?
Good morning. I’m pretty 24w pregnant. Previously because I moved house automatically I moved the midwife to control pregnancy. In the previous midwife my vitamin f * lamil. But at the midwife now my vitamin has been replaced by the trade mark pren * tal. In the vitamin pren * tal there is methylparaben as a preservative. My question is whether the vitamin can and is safe for consumption by pregnant women? Because I stopped Paraben in cosmetics too since I was pregnant. Thank you

Methyl pareben is one of the natural and synthetic substances that is useful for preserving and preventing the growth of bacteria and fungi in beauty products, as well as food.
The use of methylpareben in food and beauty products has a threshold that should not be excessive. In addition, methylpareben is one of the substances that has a low-moderate level of potential hazard (risk).
Based on the health literature, parabens can affect pregnancy because they are able to penetrate the placental barrier. However this generally happens if a pregnant woman is exposed to a large amount of the substance. In addition, pareben can also affect the quality of sperm and egg-producing follicles in the ovary so fertility is difficult to achieve and difficult to get offspring.
The content of metylparaben in vitamins certainly has a safe threshold for consumption. Although pregnancy vitamins are best taken during pregnancy, if you are in doubt you should consult an obstetrician to get more complete and relevant information.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
