PKD and Kidney Disease – Santa Barbara Nutrients

Welcome to Santa Barbara Nutrients

We are a “Benefit Corporation” headquartered in Santa Barbara, California. Our focus is on developing science-backed products that enhance kidney health and resilience against disease using patented and patent-pending technology established at the University of California Santa Barbara. Our first product, for polycystic kidney disease, was launched in November 2021.

Science breakthroughs require time, commitment, and dedication, but we are motivated to develop solutions for problems that matter.

Santa Barbara Nutrients was founded by experienced kidney researchers and many industry professionals including team members affected by kidney disease who bring in a unique perspective.

The FIRST non-prescription product specifically designed for polycystic kidney disease (PKD), KetoCitra®, has been launched!

KetoCitra® is a medical food for the nutritional management of polycystic kidney disease (PKD)

A mission is one thing – a purpose is another
