Sciele Pharma launches multivitamin-based pregnancy supplement
Sciele Pharma of Atlanta, Georgia in the US has launched Prenate DHA, a prescription multivitamin nutritional supplement with essential minerals, Omega-3 fatty acids/DHA and Metafolin.
The supplement is indicated for use in improving the nutritional status of women throughout pregnancy and in the postnatal period for both lactating and non-lactating mothers. Prenate DHA can also be beneficial in improving the nutritional status of women prior to conceiving.
Prenate DHA, an easy-to-swallow, soft-gel capsule, contains 365 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids, of which 300 mg are DHA from purified fish oil, the highest amount available in a prescription prenatal vitamin. This new formulation also provides nine important vitamins and minerals, including a unique 1 mg folate combination with 400 µg of folic acid and 600 µg of Metafolin - the active form of folate, and calcium docusate, a gentle stool softener - for extra comfort during pregnancy.
Patrick Fourteau, ceo of the vitamins company said: "Sciele is a leader in Women's Health and Prenate DHA is an important addition to our Prenate product line, a highly recognised and trusted prescription brand of prenatal vitamins in the United States."
