Metagenics Ultra GI Replenish Vanilla
UltraGI 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".
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.
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. We've found that about twice as many customers prefer Chocolate over Vanilla but there is certainly no judgement from us whatever your flavor preference is. 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.
- Formulated with prebiotic fibers— isomalto-oligosaccharides (IMOs) and structurally identical to human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs), such as 2’-fucosyllactose (2’FL)
- 2’-fucosyllactose (2’FL) may support production of short chain fatty acids and butyrate
- Contains a total of 15 g protein per serving—12 g of pea/rice protein blend and 3 g of added essential amino acids and Sustamine®
- Sustamine® is an advanced alanineglutamine dipeptide designed for enhanced absorption, stability, and solubility
- Provides essential nutrients to address malabsorption, including:
- Methylated vitamin B12 and calcium L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate, a bioavailable folate
- Zinc as zinc gluconate to support gastrointestinal mucosa integrity
