CEDARTOWN, Ga., April 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Superior Supplement Manufacturing is doing its part to make the world a healthier place by contributing to the work of Vitamin Angels, a nonprofit organization delivering vitamins to mothers and children at risk for malnutrition.
"At Superior Supplement Manufacturing, we believe in the power of giving back," explains Christine Roberts of Media Relations. "Vitamins are a simple yet extremely effective way to reduce disease and death around the world, and we're proud to be helping make a difference. We encourage everyone to support the mission of Vitamin Angels."
2015 was a record-setting year for Vitamin Angels, and it wouldn't have been possible without the contributions from companies like Superior Supplement Manufacturing. The organization reached 48 million children and mothers in 54 countries, including the U.S.
Throughout the world, malnutrition is the leading cause of preventable death in children. A child need not be starving to be malnourished, and the symptoms of many nutrient deficiencies are not always obvious. Vitamin Angels has developed a multi-pronged approach to reversing malnutrition that addresses the most common risk factors for the condition.
Vitamin Angels provides prenatal vitamins to hundreds of thousands of women across the globe, as well as advocating for breastfeeding. These vitamins offer health benefits to both mothers and babies, and can be taken even after birth and passed through breast milk. In the poorest communities, mothers often continue to work hard while lacking adequate nutrition during pregnancy. Prenatal vitamins contain the minerals and vitamins most frequently lacking from their diets – folate, vitamin A, iron and iodine.
Once a child is born, continuing proper nutrition is absolutely essential for healthy body and brain development. To that end, Vitamin Angels delivers children's multivitamins to combat the effects of malnourishment. The first three years of a child's life are a critical phase. Beyond those first years, the effects of poor nutrition cannot be reversed.
Among the most common vitamin deficiencies anywhere is vitamin A deficiency. Foods containing this essential micronutrient are often expensive or not always grown in particular regions. The effects of vitamin A deficiency include a compromised immune system, blindness and even death. Vitamin Angels can combat this deficiency with just two doses a year of Vitamin A.
In addition to its ongoing charitable efforts, Superior Supplement Manufacturing has recently expanded its production capacity to serve even more clients.
