Mannatech Enhances Omega-3 Supplement with Vitamin D
COPPELL, Texas, Aug 31, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --
Mannatech, Incorporated(NASDAQ: MTEX), the leading innovator and provider of nutritional supplements and skin care products based on Real Food Technology(R) solutions, recently announced the reformulation of its omega-3 supplement to now include vitamin D.
The new Omega-3 with Vitamin D3 capsules now contain 830 IUs of vitamin D3 and continue to provide more than 1,000 mg of highly concentrated EPA and DHA fatty acids. The omega fatty acids help promote healthy brain function, support a healthy inflammatory response and maintain cardiovascular health.* With the addition of vitamin D, daily intake of Omega-3 with Vitamin D3 provides further benefits, supporting bone, immune and nervous system health. Vitamin D has also been shown to improve mood during the winter months.
"Research has shown that a large portion of the population is deficient in both omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D, which can significantly affect long-term health," said Dr. Robert Sinnott, co-CEO and chief science officer of Mannatech. "Many experts recommend that higher levels of intake are suitable for individuals with such deficiencies. By adding vitamin D to our omega-3 supplement at no additional charge, we are making it easier for consumers to meet the recommended intake of the essential nutrients their bodies need but often don't receive through a modern Western diet."
Mannatech's decision to add vitamin D to its popular omega-3 supplement was prompted by rapidly expanding scientific research documenting the extensive health benefits of vitamin D. In addition to the ease of obtaining both essential nutrients from a single capsule, vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that can be better absorbed when taken or combined with another fat or oil-based food or supplement, such as omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil.
