ExtendBar is a low-carb, low-sugar snack food tailor-made for managing your weight and controlling your diabetes

    TORONTO, ON, June 29 /CNW Telbec/ - Auto Control Medical is pleased to
announce that ExtendBar is now available in Canada. ExtendBar is an innovative
snack food bar that has proven to reduce people's appetite by up to 21% and to
help control blood sugar for up to nine hours, longer than any other snack on
the market today. Credited with 14 patents, ExtendBar was developed in the U.
S. by Dr. Francine R. Kaufman.
    As an internationally respected endocrinologist, she has authored over
150 medical articles and has been one of the guiding forces in the fight
against obesity and diabetes. Dr. Kaufman is the head of the Center for
Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism at Children's Hospital Los Angeles; the
past president of the American Diabetes Association; author of 'Diabesity';
and a distinguished professor of pediatrics at the Keck School of Medicine of
University of Southern California (USC).
    By helping to stabilise blood sugars for up to 9 hours, ExtendBar helps
prevent the drops in blood sugar that trigger appetite and therefore keep your
hunger in check, so you snack less and eat an average of 21% fewer calories at
the next mealtime. The key ingredient that makes ExtendBar so effective is
uncooked cornstarch which is a very complex, low glycemic carbohydrate that
digests and converts to blood sugar very, very slowly. That means that insulin
levels won't spike, so the body will be more likely to burn fat for fuel and
be less likely to produce and store fat.
    ExtendBar is a healthy snack for anyone wishing to improve or maintain
their health and energy. It does not contain any ingredients that that
chemically suppress the appetite like ephedra, caffeine or guarana. Few
low-carb snacks contain sufficient long-acting carbohydrates to help maintain
a healthy blood sugar level throughout the day or night. ExtendBar naturally
controls your hunger by helping to prevent one of the key triggers of appetite
- your blood sugar dropping too quickly or too low. Also, they contain no
cholesterol or trans-fats, so they're deliciously heart healthy. Unlike most
snack bars, ExtendBar has no chocolate coating that would melt in the heat, so
it's easy to carry in your pocket as a snack during the summer months.
    Dr. Kaufman is endeavouring to build a strong product brand that people
with diabetes, dieters, healthy actives, and their children will recognize as
helping them in managing their blood sugar levels and maintaining a healthy
lifestyle. Robert Burgy, President of Auto Control Medical, ExtendBar's
Canadian distributor, has personally been successful in using ExtendBar to
lose weight and control his diabetes. 'After weight loss surgery and better
eating habits, plus eating at least one ExtendBar every day as a snack or a
meal, I've been able to shed over 130 pounds so far, without ever feeling
hungry. That they taste great is an added bonus.'
    ExtendBar will be on store shelves at key retailers such as Rexall Pharma
Plus, Loblaws/Superstore, London Drugs, Lawtons Drugs, Safeway, Metro, Jean
Coutu and others, in either the diabetes or nutritional product sections.
