Abbott Laboratories Research Reports
On July 24, 2014, Abbott Laboratories (Abbott) launched new Similac® Breastfeeding Supplement, which is specially designed to enhance the levels of DHA, lutein and vitamin E in breast milk. Abbott studied the diets of more than 80 lactating women to assess their nutritional intake compared to dietary recommendations. The study revealed that few lactating women consistently consume enough key nutrients, like DHA, lutein and vitamin E, through their diet. ″Moms are first encouraged to focus on food to obtain ideal nutrition," said Christina Sherry, Abbott Research Scientist who led the study. Christina added, "But as demonstrated by our study, the reality is that many women find it difficult to eat a well-balanced diet while adjusting to caring for a newborn. And even though many women may continue to take a prenatal vitamin during this time, many prenatal vitamins do not have, or have enough, DHA, lutein and vitamin E.″ The full research reports on Abbott are available to download free of charge at:
