Dietary intake of vitamin B2 and other B vitamin member are associated to the reduced risk of postpartum depression, a Japanese study suggested.

The prevalence of antenatal depression are found as high as 20%, while approximately 12% to 16% of women experience postpartum depression.

Women who consume a typical western diet often expressed an inadequate intakes of n-3, folate, B vitamins including vitamin B2, iron, and calcium in pregnant women inducing depletion of nutrient reserves and increasing risk for maternal depression.

Vitamin B2 also known as Riboflavin, is a water-soluble, yellow-orange organic compound found abundantly in milk, meat, eggs, nuts, enriched flour, green vegetables, etc. The vitamin is essential for normal cellular growth and function and best known for converting energy from protein, fat, and carbohydrates during metabolism and its antioxidant effects in oxidation-reduction reactions.

Postpartum depression is depression of a mother following childbirth due to hormone change and other psychological factors, including fatigue.

According to the dietary data obtained during pregnancy from a validated self-administered diet history questionnaire in 865 Japanese women, women with postpartum depression developed found in 121 subjects (14.0%) 2 to 9 months postpartum are associated to lower plasma levels of vitamin B2.

Dr. Miyake Y, the lead researcher said, "Compared with riboflavin intake in the first quartile, only riboflavin consumption in the third quartile was independently related to a decreased risk of postpartum depression (multivariate odds ratio: 0.53, 95% CI: 0.29-0.95, P for trend=0.55)".

Other researchers in the study of longitudinal relationships between maternal red-cell folate status and dietary intakes of vitamins B(6), B(12) and folate before and during pregnancy and subsequent postpartum depressive symptoms, also supported the role of vitamin B2 in reduced risk of symptoms of postnatal depression.

There is no doubt that oral injection of vitamin B2 may have a direct role in reduced risk postnatal depression in women when used conjunction with other micro nutrients or alone, but intake of large amount should be taken with care.
