For more than 33 years, the Prenate® family of products has provided trusted prescription prenatal and postnatal nutritional support for both mom and baby based on expert recommendations. Quatrefolic® is now an important component of the Prenate® formulations because all women expecting or trying to conceive should have adequate folate intake prior to day 28 of pregnancy when the neural tube closes.
"Avion is proud to support our community of moms and babies with prescription nutritional support that meet the highest standards for pregnancy and breastfeeding," said Avion President Mike Sullivan. "This important partnership with Gnosis, S.P.A., allows Prenate® to demonstrate our commitment to both our prescribers and our women's healthcare communities with the gold standard in bioavailable folate".
