Vitamin B6, found in Morning Relief, plays a vital role in serotonin synthesis and amino acid metabolism, potentially reducing the severity of morning sickness, including Hyperemesis Gravidarum, as supported by scientific research.

Pregnancy is a magical journey, but for many, the enchantment can be accompanied by the not-so-magical symptoms of morning sickness. Enter Vitamin B6, a superhero in the realm of pregnancy nutrition. As the Founder of Daisy and someone who personally navigated the challenges of morning sickness, I want to shed light on why Vitamin B6 is gaining acclaim as a go-to remedy for this common pregnancy woe.

The Neurotransmitter Connection:
Behind the scenes, Vitamin B6 plays a crucial role in synthesising neurotransmitters, including the mood-regulating serotonin. Studies suggest that maintaining optimal serotonin levels can contribute to reducing the severity of morning sickness.[1]

Metabolism Matters:
Vitamin B6 is a key player in amino acid metabolism, the process essential for protein building. Disruptions in amino acid metabolism have been linked to nausea and vomiting, making the proper functioning of Vitamin B6 a vital component in managing morning sickness.[2]

Guarding Against Hyperemesis Gravidarum:
For those grappling with severe morning sickness, known as Hyperemesis Gravidarum, studies have suggested that Vitamin B6 supplementation may offer relief. It's like a shield against the storm, helping to reduce the intensity of these challenging symptoms.[3]

As you embark on this incredible journey, remember that every pregnancy is unique. While Vitamin B6 can be a valuable ally, it's essential to consult with your healthcare provider before introducing any supplements into your routine. Your health and the health of your baby are of the utmost importance.
