The two words ‘weight gain’ can produce a subjective topic with different people having different opinions. It can be a blessing to some people while it can also be a major problem to others at the same time. It is a common observation to notice few people carrying excess weight while others finding it quite hard to gain a little. You will get a clear picture if you visit your nearest gym.
However, if you want to put on few pounds, you will find several helpful vitamins at your nearest medicine store. But you need to understand the working of the vitamins to put on the way you want them. Proper understanding will not only help the teenage girls and boys to regain their desired weight without skipping meals, but will also help the mothers to include adequate vitamins in the diets of their underweight children.This simple nutrition knowledge will maintain steady weight gain in infants without inviting obesity or overweight problems.
Back in November 2008, Richard Kremer with the help of few of his colleagues brought to the forefront the vital information related to increase in body fat through his journal. His journal was related to metabolism and clinical endocrinology and in this very issue he highlighted the relation between vitamin D and body fat.

A sample observation of around 90 Hispanic and Caucasian girls revealed an enormous increase in body fat followed by significantly low vitamin D levels. Comparing this data with the other sample comprising of teenage girls with normal vitamin D level in their body showed no excess weight gain at the time of puberty. The general physicians can prevent obesity in young generation and encourage steady weight gain through proper vitamin D evaluation.
The prenatal vitamins are taken by the pregnant mothers to increase the body weight of their baby. Low birth weights of the babies are associated with several complicated issues and for this reason these vitamins are used to reduce the risks. Before entering into the pregnancy phases, you should consult your general physician to get an idea about the beginning of the prenatal vitamin routine. Level of folic acid and vitamin B9 in the mother’s body are highly responsible for the birth weight of the baby. Including folic acid of 600 mcg into the diet of a pregnant woman will certainly ensure an adequate birth weight for her baby.
Vitamin A helps in weight gain, but according to a study conducted in University of Maryland Medical Centre, it is also responsible for the excess gain in weight around the waist. This is a very serious side effect of vitamin A. Ouliana Ziouzenkova and her associates, through their journal ‘Nature Medicine’ introduced retinaldehyde, a derivative of vitamin A, to the masses.

This not only showed the degree of seriousness of this matter, but also revealed that the roots of this problem lie deeper. Lack of retinaldehyde causes obesity. While converting the beta carotene to retinoic acid and retinaldehyde, your body first transforms it to vitamin A or retinol before oxidizing it to achieve the final results.
