As you know, new and ongoing research on PKD is not only critical to the health of those with PKD, but also to their families, and their future generations

In the above video, Dr. Weimbs emphasizes that these findings provide actionable hope for PKD patients. Ongoing and future studies at UCSB and other institutions aim to further validate these promising options for patients.

Santa Barbara Nutrients has made a commitment to scientific PKD research, and you have an opportunity to join us and make a difference in the lives of those who suffer from this incurable disease.
