USANA Health Sciences Now Offering Prenatal Product

SALT LAKE CITY, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/-- USANA Health Sciences Inc. (NYSE: USNA) recently announced the addition of a prenatal product to its already extensive line of quality nutrition products. The new product, BabyCare Prenatal Essentials, includes USANA's Prenatal Mega Antioxidant vitamin supplement and Prenatal Chelated Mineral supplement with added iron to help support a healthy pregnancy for mom and healthy growth and development for baby.*


"It's a well-known fact that the typical diet is low in micronutrients, and this is a special concern during pregnancy, because a pregnant woman's nutritional needs increase," says USANA CEO Dave Wentz. "Pregnant women and women who want to become pregnant can reap huge health benefits for themselves as well as their children by eating sensibly and taking a well-designed, quality prenatal supplement. Our BabyCare Prenatal Essentials provide a comprehensive range of vitamins and minerals that are needed for a child's healthy growth and development."*

In addition to delivering the most advanced levels of nutrients, BabyCare Prenatal Essentials ensures high levels of vitamin A, vitamin D, iron, biotin, magnesium, and high-potency iodine to give women who are pregnant, want to become pregnant, or have just given birth the best nutrition on the market. The product is also an excellent source of folate. According to the FDA, healthy diets with adequate folate may reduce a woman's risk of having a child with brain or spinal cord defects.

USANA expanded in 2010 by acquiring China-based supplement manufacturer BabyCare Ltd. The name BabyCare integrates USANA's business in China more fully into the USANA brand. "We are pleased to incorporate the BabyCare logo on our U.S.-made prenatal products," says Dan Macuga , USANA's chief communications officer. "As a USANA company, BabyCare shares our mission of improving the health of mothers and developing children and fully complements our vision of helping current and future generations live full, happy, healthy lives."*

The product will be featured in the Physicians' Desk Reference for 2014, the authoritative source on prescription drugs.
