“I created Muniq in honor of my late sister, Monica, who suffered from diabetes and other chronic health issues,” said Washington, who also has an extensive background as a health and wellness executive. “It’s always been my aspiration to help people regain control over underlying conditions, with products that can literally transform their health and that actually taste good.”
Muniq offers products like nutritional shakes formulated with scientifically-proven ingredients that include prebiotic resistant starch. They have the ability to drastically improve digestive health, weight management, blood sugar control, and more.
“I am inspired every time I hear about the life-changing impact Muniq is having on our customers’ lives,” Washington said in a press release. “And personally, as a Black founder, I am passionate about Muniq being part of the solution to help address the vast health disparities affecting Black and Brown communities.”
With COVID-19 significantly impacting Black and brown communities, Muniq is on a mission to cater to the underserved — specifically the multi-cultural diabetic community who is being highly impacted by the pandemic. According to the release, ultimately, Muniq’s goal is to close the health disparity gap for our community overall.
