If you've ever found yourself confused by just exactly what a medical food is and how it differs from a supplement or pharmaceutical drug, this article is a must read.

This article extensively discusses research from Santa Barbara Nutrients and the use of KetoCitra® for polycystic kidney disease.

As Thomas Weimbs, PhD, a Professor of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and Chief Scientific Officer for Santa Barbara Nutrients, explained, “Medical foods consist of substances ‘generally recognized as safe’ or GRAS by the United States Food and Drug Administration.” So, what’s designated a medical foods should not have to go through as extensive regulatory processes as drugs do."
