Metagenics Ultra GI Replenish Chocolate 14 Serving Pouch
Ultra GI Replenish is a medical food formulated to provide specialized macro and micro-nutrient support for patients with compromised gut function with digestive disorders including malabsorption. This is not your ordinary meal replacement or protein shake. UltraGI is specifically formulated to address gastrointestinal (GI) issues such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBD), Leaky Gut, Crohns and has scientifically proven nutrients. You can learn more about medical foods and their uses from our recent article "Medical Foods Part 1: Science, History and Application". Ultra GI Replenish has both Chocolate and Vanilla flavors in both 14 and 30 serving pouches.
Ultragi Replenish is specially designed for maximum absorption utilizing a proprietary formula called Sustamine. Sustamine is an advanced form of L-Glutamine that is highly absorpable and in studies it shows a 224% increase in abosorption compared to standard L-Glutamine. L-Glutamine is a fuel source for your mucosal cells and this critical amino acid works hard to improve those intestinal mucosal cells so they can work properly. Many of the symptoms of Leaky Gut are resolved once these cells have healed and can perform their basic functions so absorption into those cells is key to ensuring they are functioning optimally. It's 15 grams of pea and rice proteins are easily digestable and provide needed sustenance. Ultragi Replenish utilizes zinc to support the integrity of the intestinal mucus membranes.
Metagenics Ultra GI Replenish - The Leaky Gut Solver
Pathogens most commonly enter the body across the epithelial barriers of the mucosa lining the respiratory, digestive and urogenital tracts. In English that’s your nose to your lungs, your mouth through to your digestive system and your private woman and men parts. Your skin is the other place where pathogens most commonly enter the body. For this video we’re focusing on the digestive system and as we’ve talked about a lot of the pathogens which can include chemicals, bacteria, parasites etc…. are coming in via the mouth and getting into our intestinal tract.
If you think about all the toxins and bad bacteria out there and I think about COVID and us all in our houses snacking on highly processed foods that either have chemicals in them or were treated with chemicals to produce them, we’re bound to have things in our intestines that aren’t good for us. Forget even about all that bad stuff and think about the fact that bad bacteria feed on sugar. If you’ve been loading up on the on the holiday cookies, sneaking pieces of fudge or working to rid the world of candy canes one lick at a time you may not be doing your gut any favors.
When enough pathogens, chemicals, bad bacteria or other bad actors get in the intestinal tract they cause inflammation in the intestinal lining. As you can see from the image below small cracks form in that lining allowing the toxic substances to easily enter the blood stream evoking an immune response. If this continues usually the person will experience health issues over time. Because UltraGI replenish works to heal the cells that compose the lining it can play a key role in closing the gaps and absorb nutrients across the epithelial cells.
So how does it taste? We hear a lot from our customers that they like the chocolate taste of this product and specifically that's its sweet but not too sweet. It's always helpful when something you are taking tastes good and is also effective. So what makes Ultragi Replenish sweet but not too sweet? IMO, L-glutamine and L-glycine are each naturally sweet nutrients and they are low glycemic too. It's also sweetened with organic cane sugar and Lo Han Guo otherwise known as monk fruit. When mixing it with water or non-dairy milk it has a smooth consistency and is not grainy.
Please see the following benefits from the manufacturer.
