GORDONSVILLE, Va., Oct 28, 2004 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- PBM Products, Inc., makers of Bright Beginnings(TM) infant formula with DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), has recently launched a nutritional drink containing DHA. The patent-pending product offers the combination of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, amino acids, and other desirable nutrients essential for good health.
"We are pleased to offer a one-of-a-kind nutritional supplement with DHA that helps manage blood glucose levels and supports both eye and heart health," said Paul B. Manning, president and CEO of PBM Products.
PBM formulated its DHA nutritional drink to help diabetics manage their glucose levels and maintain a healthy cardiovascular system. The drink also contains lutein, which may have a beneficial effect on the human eye, and L-arginine, an amino acid that has been found to reduce inflammation. Meijer(TM) is already selling the drink in its supermarkets, and other retailers will be offering it as a store brand product in the near future. Current flavors include vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry, and PBM is creating butter pecan and toffee flavors.
The launch of the first diabetic product with DHA reflects PBM's commitment to improving the diabetic way of life with state-of-the-art nutritional offerings. PBM has already donated over $1 million to diabetes research with the aim of giving everyone with diabetes the opportunity to live a life free from the constraints of insulin management. Additionally, Manning created the Islet Replacement Research Foundation, a voluntary nonprofit grant maker and supporter of diabetes research. The goal of the foundation is to bring together dedicated scientists who support ambitious research projects to find a cure for diabetes and eradicate insulin dependence.
