Sambazon Press Release:
We are excited to share that our first human clinical trial has been completed and we had very promising and positive results.
We funded Medicus Research to conduct a pilot study with 10 adult male and female participants where each participant consumed 100 grams of Sambazon Açaí Pure packs twice daily for one month. After 30 days of consuming Sambazon açaí, participants’ fasting glucose, insulin, total cholesterol, and LDL (bad cholesterol) were significantly reduced, as compared to the baseline. In addition, post-prandial (between meals) increases in blood glucose levels were significantly reduced.
To date, more than 175 media outlets have picked up our press release, so it’s receiving great coverage so far!
This study was presented at the Scripps Integrative Health and Alternative Medicine Conference on January 23 and we won third place for our presentation and findings.
This is a big win for us and we look forward to doing more research to prove the benefits of consuming our products.
