Fasting has been a fascinating human practice across millennia. Its humble beginnings date back to early times when humans foraged and were forced to fast while finding food sources. Eventually, fasting took shape as a spiritual practice for forgiveness, soul or body cleanse, or even sacrifice and meditation. Medically speaking, fasting has been used to help relieve symptoms of specific conditions based on scientific breakthroughs of fasting in cell metabolism. At present, fasting rises as a powerful health and wellness trend to help our bodies stay healthy and enhance cellular function.
L-Nutra, our founding company behind Fast Bar®, commercializes the Fasting Mimicking technology using the potential cellular renewal power of fasting and researched for over 20 years at the University of Southern California (USC). Exciting and promising scientific discoveries about fasting led L-Nutra to introduce the very first 5-day Fasting Mimicking Diet® (FMD®) under the brand ProLon® in 2016.
Today, L-Nutra is proud to announce the launch of Fast Bar®, the first nutrition bar in the world specifically formulated to allow you to fast while you eat. Based on the nut bar included in ProLon®,Fast Bar provides essential micro- and macro-nutrients as a delicious, non-GMO, plant-based bar which allows you to extend your fasting window* or eat a healthy snack while on-the-go.
