Nutarniq is founded on the clinical research of Dr. Evan Lewis who has spent over 5 years researching nerve health, function and regeneration. He is leading the development of targeted nutritional therapy for chronic diseases and disease complication. These breakthrough nutrition options are now available in Canada and coming soon to countries around the world.
Dr. Lewis has focused his research on developing a nutrition therapy for neuropathy. His first clinical trials showed that after 1-year of therapy, people with diabetes and neuropathy showed 30% nerve regeneration. Diabetic neuropathy is the most prevalent and pervasive neuromuscular disease facing the world. Diabetes is a global pandemic that affects over 415 million people and is expected to increase by 40% by 2040. Over 50% of all diabetics will develop diabetic neuropathy within 10-years of diabetes diagnosis.
Dr. Evan Lewis PhD - CEO & Chief Scientist
Evan’s passion for nutritional science and human performance developed from his time training as an athlete on the Canadian Sailing Team. Evan completed his MSc at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Kinesiology where he investigated the hydration and energy requirements for Canadian Sailing Team athletes in preparation for the 2012 Olympics. He completed his PhD at the University of Toronto, Department of Nutritional Sciences, Faculty of Medicine where he investigated the effects of target nutritional supplementation with pro-nerve omega-3s to enhance nerve function in athletes. The positive results from this research lead to investigating the same solution as a targeted nutritional therapy for diabetic neuropathy.
