Product Family

While SciMar NuPa Daily is a supplement that almost everyone can take, the future of the NuPa product line is dedicated to meeting people's needs at all stages of Type 2 diabetes progression.

Through this research, SciMar has developed novel products to diagnose, support, and reverse any damage to the hepatalin* hormone along with a synthetic version of the hormone itself.

SciMar NuPa Daily

A nutraceutical for metabolism, immunity, and mood balance that is believed to protect the production of hepatalin.

SciMar NuPa Test

Measures the body's ability to produce hepatalin, thereby detecting Type 2 diabetes earlier than ever possible before.

SciMar NuPa Renew

A prescription drug that activates the production of hepatalin.
