ATLANTA, Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Avion Pharmaceuticals, a specialty pharmaceutical company, recently announced its partnership with The Balancing Act®, a daily morning talk show on the Lifetime® Television Network devoted to supporting women. At 7 a.m. EST on Monday, Nov. 26, 2012, The Balancing Act® will re-air a segment on the importance of proper nutrition during pregnancy and will feature information about the innovative new prenatal vitamin, the Prenate Mini™. Prenate Mini is the smallest prescription prenatal vitamin with a comprehensive formulation that contains 350 mg of DHA.
The Balancing Act® segment features information shared by a women's healthcare expert about the importance of taking 1 mg of folic acid daily before and during pregnancy to help prevent neural tube defects. Prenate Mini from Avion Pharmaceuticals contains 1 mg of folic acid in the form of Quatrefolic®. The fourth generation folate that is found in the Prenate Vitamin Family, Quatrefolic, is the active form of folate that is beneficial to women – including the 50 percent of women who have an impaired ability to break down folic acid.
"Avion is thrilled to support the Balancing Act® and other important women's health programming designed to help women make informed decisions in life related to health & nutrition, fitness, parenting and other important topics," said Mike Sullivan, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, for Avion Pharmaceuticals. "Prenate Mini is the first of many innovative nutritional offerings that Avion will be offering women. Prenate Mini is unique in its size and nutritional value, using the next generation folate (Quatrefolic), DHA and essential vitamins and minerals – all in one easy-to-swallow gel cap. We couldn't be more proud to feature this product on Lifetime Television Network."
