Vertical Pharmaceuticals, LLC Introduces OB Complete® Gold — First and Only Egg-Based DHA Prenatal Vitamin

New OmEGGa DHA® Technology Marks Major Advance in Prenatal
Supplements

SAYREVILLE, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–OB Complete® Gold is a breakthrough innovation in prenatal
vitamin supplements that contains the advanced technology of OmEGGa DHA®,
providing a novel egg-based DHA that comes from cage-free hens. DHA, or
docosahexaenoic acid, is an Omega 3 fatty acid that is believed to play
an important role in the development of the brain, retina and central
nervous system.


“What makes OB Complete® Gold such a breakthrough product is
the egg-based OmEGGa DHA® that contains a bioefficient form
of DHA found naturally in the brain, eyes and breast milk,” said Nurse
Barb Dehn, a San Francisco-based nurse practitioner. “This particular
form of DHA is more easily absorbed, digested and distributed into the
body’s tissues.”

The DHA found in other prenatal vitamin supplements is developed from
marine sources such as fish or algae, which can give women side effects
including bad breath, a fishy taste and burping. The OmEGGa DHA®
in OB Complete® Gold does not cause these same unpleasant
fishy side effects.

“Besides OmEGGa DHA®, what I really like about OB Complete®
Gold is that it also includes the biologically available forms of folic
acid and iron as Quatrefolic® and Ferronyl® Iron,
and high levels of Vitamin D3,” says Jay M. Goldberg, MD,
FACOG, a Los Angeles based obstetrician. “During pregnancy a woman’s
body undergoes many physical and hormonal changes and she can experience
things like fatigue, loss of appetite and upset stomach which can make
it difficult to maintain the proper levels of essential nutrients needed
for a healthy pregnancy. OB Complete® Gold helps replenish
lost nutrients and provides everything I want for my patients,” he added.

What Makes OB Complete®
Gold Different

The DHA found in other prenatal vitamins is a triglyceride form of DHA,
which goes through a series of long physical and biochemical reactions
before it can be used by the body. The OmEGGa DHA® found in
OB Complete® Gold is different. It contains a bioefficient
form of DHA that is delivered by a phospholipid instead of a
triglyceride. As a result, the DHA found in OmEGGa DHA® may
be absorbed by the body in fewer and simpler steps; including a more
direct route to the brain.

OB Complete® Gold is a prescription prenatal vitamin
providing proprietary OmEGGa DHA® technology in a
comprehensive formulation of key vitamins and minerals for mom and baby
in a small, easy to swallow softgel taken once a day. It’s gluten free,
sugar free and lactose free.

OB Complete® Gold features on-the-go packaging designed to
help busy moms-to-be keep track of their daily dosage, while offering
cost-savings coupons and helpful insights on baby’s development during
each trimester.

“In today’s world, expectant moms have a lot on their mind. Our goal is
to provide these women with a revolutionary prenatal vitamin supplement
so they have the confidence that they made a great choice in selecting
OB Complete® Gold for a healthy pregnancy,” says Pam Remash,
Women’s Healthcare Marketing at Vertical Pharmaceuticals, LLC.
