Mumabi, May 21 (TIWN): While we all know that breastfeeding has innumerable health benefits for children, a new study now finds that the mother may also benefit from such an experience especially when they choose to breastfeed for a period longer than 2 years.

The findings revealed in a report presented in the recent European Society of Endocrinology event, say, women who have opted to breastfed at some point in their lives are less likely to develop heart complications. This benefit is amplified to those who breastfed longer.

Researchers opine that women who choose to breastfeed their offspring enjoy regular weight loss, better blood sugar regulation as well as reduced risks for particular types of cancer, including breast cancer. The new study found that increased levels of prolactin hormone in breastfeeding women save them from the risks of developing cardiovascular problems.
