June 17, 2020, Toronto, Ont. – SP Nutraceuticals (SP) has launched a natural supplement called Metavo that contains avocatin B (AvoB), a powerful bioactive naturally found in avocados that helps maintain normal blood glucose levels and supports healthy metabolism.

In collaboration with a team of nutritional scientists from the University of Guelph, renowned nutraceutical expert and researcher Dr. Paul Spagnuolo conducted extensive research and identified and isolated the new bioactive.

AvoB can be used to maintain a healthy metabolism, blood sugar levels and weight in adults naturally, effectively and safely. It is particularly beneficial for those who are looking to manage blood sugar levels, and those who are pre-diabetic, obese or overweight.

“AvoB has been scientifically proven to target a root cause of ineffective metabolism which leads to high blood sugar,” said Dr. Spagnuolo. “After years of researching, we understand how natural compounds target various diseases; this creates a significant opportunity to develop natural products that can help improve the health of people struggling with disease.”


Based on this discovery, SP Nutraceutical’s product development experts formulated Metavo to support healthy metabolism. Metavo is available in convenient on-the-go powder sachets and soon-to-be-released capsules. Each lot of avocado powder used to formulate Metavo is tested to ensure a standardized dose of AvoB.

“We know that an imbalance of something as simple as blood sugar levels can have a profound and negative impact on our health so the ability to rebalance blood sugar levels naturally, effectively and safely is critical,” said Christina Barbato, CEO of SP Nutraceuticals. “After years of research, Paul and I are proud to launch Metavo and share our discoveries with those who can benefit from them.”
