BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthy Directions LLC, a subsidiary of Adaptive Health, LLC, is proud to announce its corporate sponsorship of Vitamin Angels, a global public health nonprofit that distributes lifesaving vitamins and minerals to women and children in need around the world.
Healthy Directions' mission, "to provide a better path to better health" with nutritional supplements and education, aligns with the Vitamin Angels objective to end global malnutrition by distributing life-changing vitamins and minerals to at-risk pregnant women and children under five in the U.S. and around the world. Vitamin Angels provides prenatal multivitamins, minerals, vitamin A, and deworming supplements, as well as nutrition education to undernourished communities in low and middle-income countries. Through these programs, Vitamin Angels is working to eliminate preventable childhood illnesses, blindness, and decrease infant mortality rates.
"We are thrilled to be partnered with Healthy Directions as we continue our fight to end global malnutrition," said Howard Schiffer, President & Founder of Vitamin Angels. "With their support, we will reach even more at-risk mothers and babies with life-changing vitamins and minerals."
Vitamin Angels recently received its 8th 4-star rating from Charity Navigator (CN), the premier charity evaluator. This puts Vitamin Angels in the top 4% most trustworthy charities in America.
Consistent with Vitamin Angels, Healthy Directions believes health education, adding key micronutrients to the diet, and overall nutrition can prevent many diseases associated with malnutrition. Healthy Directions is a premier source of health education and nutritional supplements.
"While our customers are improving their own health, they will also be able to contribute to the wellness of others in need," said Ben Teicher, President of Healthy Directions. "The Healthy Directions family wants to do everything we can to make a difference in as many lives as possible. Everyone deserves access to better health and the ability to control their own wellness to the greatest degree possible."
