SAYREVILLE, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OB Complete® Gold is a breakthrough innovation in prenatal vitamin supplements that contains the advanced technology of OmEGGa DHA®, providing a novel egg-based DHA that comes from cage-free hens. DHA, or docosahexaenoic acid, is an Omega 3 fatty acid that is believed to play an important role in the development of the brain, retina and central nervous system.
“What makes OB Complete® Gold such a breakthrough product is the egg-based OmEGGa DHA® that contains a bioefficient form of DHA found naturally in the brain, eyes and breast milk,” said Nurse Barb Dehn, a San Francisco-based nurse practitioner. “This particular form of DHA is more easily absorbed, digested and distributed into the body’s tissues.”
The DHA found in other prenatal vitamin supplements is developed from marine sources such as fish or algae, which can give women side effects including bad breath, a fishy taste and burping. The OmEGGa DHA® in OB Complete® Gold does not cause these same unpleasant fishy side effects.
“Besides OmEGGa DHA®, what I really like about OB Complete® Gold is that it also includes the biologically available forms of folic acid and iron as Quatrefolic® and Ferronyl® Iron, and high levels of Vitamin D3,” says Jay M. Goldberg, MD, FACOG, a Los Angeles based obstetrician. “During pregnancy a woman’s body undergoes many physical and hormonal changes and she can experience things like fatigue, loss of appetite and upset stomach which can make it difficult to maintain the proper levels of essential nutrients needed for a healthy pregnancy. OB Complete® Gold helps replenish lost nutrients and provides everything I want for my patients,” he added.
What Makes OB Complete® Gold Different
The DHA found in other prenatal vitamins is a triglyceride form of DHA, which goes through a series of long physical and biochemical reactions before it can be used by the body. The OmEGGa DHA® found in OB Complete® Gold is different. It contains a bioefficient form of DHA that is delivered by a phospholipid instead of a triglyceride. As a result, the DHA found in OmEGGa DHA® may be absorbed by the body in fewer and simpler steps; including a more direct route to the brain.
OB Complete® Gold is a prescription prenatal vitamin providing proprietary OmEGGa DHA® technology in a comprehensive formulation of key vitamins and minerals for mom and baby in a small, easy to swallow softgel taken once a day. It’s gluten free, sugar free and lactose free.
OB Complete® Gold features on-the-go packaging designed to help busy moms-to-be keep track of their daily dosage, while offering cost-savings coupons and helpful insights on baby’s development during each trimester.
“In today’s world, expectant moms have a lot on their mind. Our goal is to provide these women with a revolutionary prenatal vitamin supplement so they have the confidence that they made a great choice in selecting OB Complete® Gold for a healthy pregnancy,” says Pam Remash, Women’s Healthcare Marketing at Vertical Pharmaceuticals, LLC.
