SAN ANTONIO— Mission Pharmacal Company on Thursday announced the availability of a new, patented dual-iron version of its prenatal vitamin, CitraNatal Harmony, a single-pill prescription supplement with calcium citrate. The product features Ferr-Ease, a patented blend of ferrous fumarate, a rapidly absorbing iron salt, and carbonyl iron, known for its gentle, prolonged absorption.
“The dual-iron formulation used in the new CitraNatal Harmony formulation helps women get the iron they need, yet is gentle on the gastrointestinal system,” said Nancy Price, senior product manager, CitraNatal, Mission Pharmacal. “This improved product is significant because all supplements in our CitraNatal family of vitamins now offer the patented dual-iron formulation that gives women added comfort throughout their pregnancies.”
CitraNatal Harmony is now available in the United States as a prescription supplement to improve nutrition for women prior to conception, throughout pregnancy and in the postnatal period. CitraNatal Harmony is safe for use by mothers who are breastfeeding their babies, the company stated.
