Upsher-Smith Laboratories Launches to Support Prenatal Nutrition and Health

Upsher-Smith announces the launch of, a web site devoted to PreNexa™, the first and only single capsule prenatal vitamin with more plant-based DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) than any other prenatal vitamin.

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) December 9, 2008 -- Upsher-Smith announces the launch of, a web site devoted to PreNexa™, the first and only single capsule prenatal vitamin with more plant-based DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) than any other prenatal vitamin.(1-6)

Some of the attractions on include:

Advantages of Plant-Based DHA

Plant-based DHA is derived directly from algae grown in fermentation tanks. This avoids the worries you may have about oceanborne contaminants or toxins, which may be associated with fish-based DHA.(7) Fish-based DHA is obtained by extracting DHA from fish oil after fish have eaten algae and are processed in variable filtration.(8)

PreNexa™ DHA eliminates the risk of fish and shellfish allergies--one of the most widespread allergies in the US.(9) PreNexa™ DHA contains no fish oil, unlike many other prenatal vitamins, which can leave a fishy smell and taste.(10)

Free Samples for Healthcare Providers includes a vehicle for healthcare professionals to request and receive PreNexa™ samples to support patient trial and use. Visit to obtain free samples.
