ATLANTA, Aug. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Avion Pharmaceuticals, LLC, a specialty pharmaceutical company, is pleased to support the United States Breastfeeding Committee's (USBC) designation of August as National Breastfeeding Month. Avion applauds the efforts of the USBC and recognizes that not all women are able to breastfeed but for those women who can, there are many positive benefits for both mom and baby. As a show of its support, Avion has donated $500 to the USBC to help fund further research efforts.
This year's National Breastfeeding Month theme focuses on the progress made since 2011, when the Surgeon General released a call to action to support breastfeeding (SGCTA). The USBC is commemorating the successes of the past five years and working to continue to increase the number of women who adopt healthy behaviors before becoming pregnant, throughout their pregnancy and post-partum.
Prenate® Restore is Avion's first and only prescription post-natal supplement designed for breastfeeding that includes probiotics. The 15 vitamins, minerals and nutrients included in Prenate Restore are designed to restore moms' reserves and support infant growth. The probiotics help support the gastrointestinal and immune health of both baby and mom. Prenate Restore also includes high levels of DHA (400 mg), vitamin D, folic acid, iron, and calcium.
"Avion is proud to support the mission of the USBC and is committed to support our community of moms and babies with prescription nutritional support that meets expert recommendation for pregnancy and breastfeeding," said Avion President Mike Sullivan. "Our mission is to develop products that deliver maximum benefits along the continuum of care in women's lives. These products are driven by a desire to improve the lives of both moms and babies."
