CARLSBAD, Calif., Nov. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Amsety, the developer of the Amsety Liver Nutrition Bar, and the Community Liver Alliance (CLA) are proud to announce a new collaboration to support people with special liver conditions. Amsety will donate a percentage of proceeds from the sale of Amsety Bars to the CLA and will support the CLA with sponsorship of their special events and educational initiatives.
"Proper nutrition for people with special liver conditions is a significant challenge," said Suzanna Masartis, executive director of the Community Liver Alliance. "Education about proper nutrition to support liver health is imperative for this group of individuals. We are dedicated to supporting the community through liver disease awareness, prevention, education and research."
In the U.S., approximately 30 million people are affected by liver disease, yet the role of proper nutrition for people with special liver conditions is largely ignored. Recommended dietary restrictions for liver patients can leave patients with limited choices and challenged to achieve adequate nutrition.
"Our collaboration with the Community Liver Alliance is an important part of our continued mission to support people with special liver conditions and to provide them with information about liver health along with convenient and complete nutritional options," said Michele De Motto, director of business development for Amsety. "We designed the Amsety Liver Nutrition Bar as a meal replacement or snack in a ready-to-eat nutrition bar for people who need to eat better to support liver health."
The Amsety Liver Nutrition Bar is the first of its kind to support liver health and was developed by leading liver specialists to provide optimal nutrition and promote liver wellness. Through extensive research and development, a team of liver specialists devised the Super 16™, a proprietary blend of 16 vitamins and minerals clinical studies show maintain liver health.
Amsety Bars are available in two flavors – Peanut Butter Superstar and Dark Chocolate Bliss. They are made with natural ingredients and contain no sodium, no gluten, no added sugars and are non-genetically modified. Amsety Bars are certified organic, kosher, gluten-free and vegetarian.

About the Community Liver Alliance
The focus of the Community Liver Alliance (CLA) is to provide support and education to those experiencing liver illnesses and to their caregivers. The CLA also provides resources to local health care professionals. The Community Liver Alliance builds bridges connecting patients to health care providers and services; creates and conducts screenings, educational workshops and seminars; coordinates support groups; works with local media and community groups to increase awareness of liver wellness and liver disease; and meets with local, state, and federal policy makers to initiate positive change.
The Allegheny Tri-State region includes Western Pennsylvania, Western Ohio and Northern West Virginia and lacks a stable, community-focused organization that can consistently support and meet the needs of the local liver community. In discussions with patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals it became clear there is a need for this type of nonprofit organization.
After further consultation, a concerned group of 17 individuals representing the stakeholders listed above came together in the fall of 2012 to form the Community Liver Alliance (CLA). The individuals representing these organizations, patients and caregivers have come to a clear understanding of the importance and the mission of a local, liver-related nonprofit organization.
