For the second straight year, a Twinlab Corporation manufactured product has been recognized for innovation in the natural products industry
NEW YORK – April 22, 2014 – After winning a 2013 Expo West NEXTy award for Twinlab’s launch of the standard-setting CleanSeries “super-certified” sports nutrition line, the company has again been recognized as an industry trendsetter after this year’s NEXTy award nominations.
For 2014, Mommi 3-in-1, a prenatal protein and vitamin supplement containing DHA developed to meet the nutritional needs of pregnant women, has been nominated for the Expo West NEXTy Award. Mommi 3-in-1 is manufactured by Twinlab Corporation for Mommi, LLC, and Twinlab is the exclusive retail distributor of Mommi 3-in-1. Twinlab played an early role in helping to develop the formula based on Mommi 3-in-1’s business model and is a part owner of the company.
The coveted NEXTy Award nominations are bestowed upon select exhibitors identified by New Hope Natural Media as key leaders and influencers in elevating dietary supplements and health food products to new, higher levels. Nominees are also cited for “being poised to bring change” to the industry with innovative ideas and strong leadership.
“This latest nomination marks yet another Twinlab milestone – strengthening our reputation in the natural products industry as a company that brings innovative, trendsetting product lines to market,” says Tom Tolworthy, CEO of Twinlab. “We are honored that a product we manufacture is being nominated for a second straight year. This is the type of recognition that really drives home our mission of being industry leaders, providing innovations and superior products.”
One of the first supplements of its kind to deliver this combination of essential prenatal vitamins to pregnant women, Mommi 3-in-1 includes 15 grams of premium whey protein, 200 milligrams of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and 14 essential prenatal vitamins in every serving. DHA is an Omega-3 fatty acid and is important for the nerve- and brain-cell development of developing babies.*
Created by Erin Schurtz with the design and development support of Dr. Yvonne Bohn OB/GYN, nutritionist Rachel Jones and Twinlab “sciences,” Mommi 3-in-1 offers additional advantages over competing supplements for new or soon-to-be mothers:
- Mommi 3-in-1 uses a whey protein blend because it is more easily digestible and has a better amino acid profile and is a higher quality protein than most vegetable based proteins;
- Mommi 3-in-1 is backed by Twinlab in its development;
- Mommi 3-in-1 is non-GMO tested and certified gluten-free by NSF International;
- Mommi 3-in-1 is economically sold in single-serving bags for $2.99 (MSRP) or 15-serving bags for $36.99 (MRSP)
“As a fit and active woman, I had always supplemented my diet with a protein shake – but in all my research I could not find a protein supplement without a warning label advising against the use by pregnant or nursing women,” says Erin Schurtz, Mommi creator and CEO. “I developed Mommi 3-in-1 so it is easier for active, healthy mothers such as myself to achieve the recommended daily intake of protein, which also included the essential prenatals and DHA needed during pregnancy.”

Inspired by founder Erin Schurtz’s struggle to find a simple nutritional solution during her own pregnancy, the Mommi 3-in-1 prenatal supplement was created by an OB/GYN and top nutritional scientists to ensure women get the best nutrition possible during pregnancy. In harmony with the FDA’s recommended daily intake levels, Mommi 3-in-1 combines all three beneficial components to support a healthy pregnancy into a single, great-tasting product. When prepared with 10 ounces of milk, each serving contains 25 g of protein, 100% daily value of 14 essential prenatal vitamins and 200 mg of DHA, helping provide for the extra nutrition a woman needs during a typical pregnancy.
