The story of Innova Nutrition began in 2004 when Riley Livingston, Dr. David Wood, and Dr. Rick Posmantur took on the challenge of formulating a bar that would meet the nutritional needs of individuals with unstable blood sugar levels.
They had noticed that almost every nutrition bar on the market contained high amounts of carbohydrates, refined sugars, poor-quality oils, artificial preservatives, and they didn’t taste great. Dr. David Wood (who also was the co-founder/co-owner of BioGenesis Nutraceuticals) and Dr. Rick Postmantur, two naturopathic physicians with extensive experience formulating products, together with Riley Livingston (who was also a co-founder/co-owner of BioGenesis Nutraceuticals) developed a bar that was beneficial not just to individuals with unstable blood sugar levels, but for everyone interested in managing their sugar intake. The end result was the high-quality, delicious, nutrient-rich Diabeteze bar.
Introducing the bar to the general public
In 2012, Innova Nutrition changed the name of the bar to Stabilyze. This name not only reflects the benefits of the bar being diabetic friendly, but also represents that it supports stable blood sugar levels.
Every bar provides high-quality protein amounts, 8 grams of a prebiotic fiber, high levels of 21 vitamins and minerals, and low net carbs. The bars are also certified gluten free to provide a nutritious snack for individuals who need to avoid consuming foods that contain gluten.
Our focus – is you
At Innova Nutrition, we are focused to provide products comprised of only the highest quality ingredients. Our bars can be used in many ways: as part of a weight management program to help support appetite control, athletes, and individuals with diabetes or to help manage hypoglycemia, those with a gluten intolerance, and anyone on the go who needs a quick, healthy and balanced meal.
