Vitamin C during mouse pregnancy promotes future fertility of the fetuses
We recently published an intriguing link between maternal Vitamin C levels during a female fetus’ growth and development, and the future fertility rates of the fetus when it becomes adult. This research has revealed the importance of maternal nutritional environment on fecundity of female embryos.
