Clinical Studies

SoLo Clinical Studies

SoLo Bar has become the low glycemic index benchmark nutritional supplement; used in more independent and peer reviewed studies by leading scientific institutions than any other snack. Researchers recognize SoLo Bar’s high nutritional value, SoLo CarbControlTM Technology, very low glycemic clinical validation and great taste for use in numerous ongoing low GI studies.

Pregnancy & SoLo Bar

Gestational diabetes: Glycemic load and infant birth weight in pregnant overweight/obese women. Randomized trial finds low glycemic diet with SoLo Bars helps prevent gestational diabetes, better cardiovascular profile, longer gestational period, larger infant head circumference – suggestive of early brain development.

Inflammation, Obesity, Cancer & SoLo Bar

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center: Overweight and obese adults; a diet rich in slowly digested carbohydrates significantly reduces markers of inflammation associated with chronic disease and increases a hormone that helps regulate the metabolism of fat and sugar. A Low-Glycemic Load Diet Reduces Serum C-Reactive Protein and Modestly Increases Adiponectin in Overweight and Obese Adults.

Diogenes & SoLo Bar Profile

Genetic predisposition to diabetes and obesity (Diogene study). The world’s largest diet study concluded that a “low glycemic diet” with slightly more protein is the best diet to prevent weight re-gain, according to researchers at the Faculty of Life Sciences (LIFE) at the University of Copenhagen. More than 900 adults from eight European countries took part in the study. While SoLo’s formula is consistent with these findings, SoLo did not take part in this study.

Canadian Diabetes Association 2013 Clinical Practice Guidelines Expert Committee Says...

Choosing food sources of carbohydrates with a low glycemic index, rather than a high glycemic index has a clinically significant effect on glycemic control in people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
