around the clock glucose control program.
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) April 28, 2009
"The Doctors", a popular TV program syndicated throughout the U.S. and Canada by CBS Television Distribution will be featuring ExtendSnacks in a segment focusing on the use of ExtendBar as a great snack choice for consumers looking to avoid the energy crash associated with unhealthy snacking throughout the day. For the past six years, ExtendSnacks have built a loyal following across the country and are now commonly recommended by doctors and registered dieticians to assist patients with issues related to blood sugar control and weight management.
CBS will air the segment Friday, May 8 as Francine R. Kaufman, MD, a world-renowned endocrinologist, past president of the American Diabetes Association, and inventor of ExtendBar will discuss this cutting edge product and its usefulness as a healthy snack to prevent the "ever-too-common" spike, crash and crave cycle associated with most snack choices.
"The Doctors" TV segment will focus on Dr. Kaufman advising a viewer, concerned with her energy crash after a mid-day snack, on healthy snacking and the importance of maintaining blood sugar balance. ExtendBar is the perfect example to demonstrate a "good choice" snack as it has been clinically proven to help control hunger, avoid blood sugar lows and highs, and provide energy that lasts - benefits that are of great value for diabetes, weight management and fitness-minded consumers concerned with sustaining energy throughout the day. ExtendSnacks are backed by multiple clinical studies published in peer reviewed journals and have earned 17 patents worldwide to date.
ExtendSnacks are the first and only healthy snacks clinically proven to help control blood sugar for up to 9 hours. ExtendSnacks (including ExtendBars, ExtendCrisps, ExtendShakes), is the first ever brand to offer an "around the clock glucose control program." This offers tremendous benefits and a new alternative for the millions of people who struggle with energy, weight management and diabetes issues on a daily basis. The best part is the program is simple -- just eating 3 snacks throughout the day as part of a healthy meal plan will help keep blood sugar stable and in control, around the clock.
"No other snack food brand is backed by such in-depth and credible science; yet, is presented as such a simple glucose and hunger control program. This simplicity makes a real difference in our everyday lives," says Vijay Chauhan, President of ExtendSnacks. "This high-profile exposure on "The Doctors" will no doubt have a profound impact on consumer awareness of the need for people of all ages to snack properly and monitor and stabilize blood sugar," says Chauhan. He added, "Moreover, the credibility of Dr. Kaufman will further reinforce that ExtendSnacks are the most effective and convenient healthy snacks on the market from the standpoint of patients, physicians and nutrition professionals."
