SAN DIEGO, Oct. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In the U.S., 30 million people are affected by liver disease or chronic liver conditions. Until now, there has been no ready-to-eat food option that delivers the necessary vitamins and minerals liver patients need to feel better and be more active. Just in time for October Liver Awareness Month, Amsety, a health-focused nutrition company, has introduced the Amsety Bar - the first-ever nutrition bar that supports liver health.
"For more than 20 years, I've been treating liver patients who have had no access to convenient food options specifically formulated for their health conditions," said Dr. Tarek Hassanein, M.D., medical advisor to Amsety. "There are hundreds of products available for diabetes patients, for example, yet no options for the 30 million people suffering from liver disease. The Amsety Bar is an easy, convenient solution that provides nutritional support for their liver health."
The Amsety nutrition bar is the first of its kind to support liver health and was developed by liver health specialists to provide the optimal nutrition to maintain 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.
The liver is the powerhouse for filtering all nutrient intake and re-distribution throughout the body. Without it working properly, people living with liver disease are often malnourished and this causes additional devastation to the liver. Many liver patients are also living with other diseases, such as diabetes, celiac disease and drug and alcohol addictions, and the Amsety Bar meets the nutritional guidelines for these conditions as well.
"During Liver Awareness Month, my objective is to give liver patients hope that their quality of life can be improved," continues Dr. Hassanein. "Ready-to-eat solutions can help patients regain control of good dietary habits and these solutions serve as an excellent complement to a meal plan rich in grains, proteins, fruits and vegetables."
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. They are made in the U.S. and available for purchase at www.amsety.com.
