PBM Products, makers of Bright Beginnings infant formula with DHA
(docosahexaenoic acid), has launched what it claims to be the first
diabetic nutritional drink containing DHA.

The company said the patent-pending product is the only diabetic beverage with omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, amino acids, and provides 25 percent of the RDIs for 24 key nutrients.

"We are pleased to offer a one-of-a-kind nutritional supplement with DHA that helps diabetics manage blood glucose levels and supports both eye and heart health,"​ said Paul Manning, president and CEO of PBM Products. "This is a great drink for diabetics, but it can also benefit people who are not suffering from diabetes."

The drink was formulated to help diabetics manage their glucose levels and maintain a healthy cardiovascular system, but according to the company, it also contains lutein for eye health and L-arginine, an amino acid that has been found to help diabetics by reducing inflammation.

Indeed the company added that it could be used as a nutritional snack or be recommended by a physician or dietician for non-diabetics.

The DHA used in the drink is manufactured by Martek Biosciences Corporation, one of the companies that helped petition the FDA to issue a health claim for omega-3.

The drink is currently being sold by Meijer in its supermarkets and other retailers are set to offer it as a store brand product in the near future. Flavors, at present, include vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry, butter pecan and toffee flavors are under creation.
