What are the benefits of Absorb Plus?

  •  Easy and gentle on your stomach and digestive system
  •  Helps maintain or gain solid weight (not fat)
  •  Daily nutritional support
  •  Delicious taste - and all natural!
  •  Feel more energy and sleep better

Used exclusively to provide bowel rest (reduced fecal matter), or along with other foods to provide a low residue diet, or high quality nutrients and healing substances in liquid form. Absorb Plus has been carefully formulated to meet the unique needs of people who have problems chewing, swallowing, digesting or absorbing their food. This includes people with Crohn's, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome, cancer, AIDS, anorexia, people pre and post-surgery, and the elderly. There is currently NO product on the market that matches Absorb Plus in nutritional value or the extremely high quality of our ingredients. One of our customers (who researched the market extensively) put it like this: "The other liquid diet or elemental products are like going to McDonald's, whereas Absorb Plus is like a home-cooked meal!"

 
Contains cold-extracted whey protein isolate (casein-free and lactose-free), so protein is not denatured by heat or chemicals. Whey isolate is an alkaline food, ideal for counteracting hyper-acidity.

Custom-blend of 10 additional targeted amino acids, specially selected for chronic illness and gut repair, for example:

• Over 1000 mg of L-Glutamine per serving to rebuild mucosal cell lining in intestines
• L-Serine for production of immunoglobulins and antibodies
• L-Threonine to aid formation of collagen and elastin
• L-Cystine to aid wound healing
• L-Tyrosine to aid function of pituitary, adrenal and thyroid glands
• L-Aspartic Acid to protect the liver
• L-Proline to heal cartilage, strengthen joints, tendons and heart muscle

Our vitamin and mineral panel:

• Full panel of trace minerals – trace mineral deficiency is common in chronic illness.
• Also contains 10 mcg Vitamin K2 (as MK-7; first identified by Dr. Weston A. Price as “Activator X”) and 100 mcg of potassium iodide per serving – since almost all people with chronic illness have adrenal and/or thyroid insufficiency.
• Contains full electrolyte panel.
 
Formulated to allow people to add their own amount of good fat – since everyone’s fat tolerance level varies. We suggest adding 1 tbsp. organic flax or Udo’s Choice oil (which brings total calorie count to approximately 480 calories per shake).

Please Note: We strongly advise you purchase a few Sample sizes of Absorb Plus, or just 1 tub, before buying the volume needed to do a full elemental diet. This will allow you to check for allergies or intolerance to any of the ingredients. Signs of intolerance or food allergy include: brain fog, grogginess, sore joints, headaches, nausea, skin rash, blurred vision, asthma, chest pains, edema, etc. 
 
You can also purchase the Vegan Elemental Diet Kit, which uses sprouted rice protein and allows you to adjust the amount of carbohydrates per serving.  

 

How To Mix Absorb Plus:

Pour 1 cup (8 ounces) of cold water* into a blender, then add:
1 tsp. - 1 tbsp. organic flax or Udo's Oil (as much as you can tolerate)
4 level scoops Absorb Plus
Whip on low speed for 10 to 15 seconds
Pour into a glass over ice and drink slowly.

*Use cold or room temperature water (spring or filtered recommended). Do not use hot water. You can use liquids other than water (raw milk, almond milk, rice milk) but then the shake will no longer be elemental. We do not recommend you use soy milk (depresses thyroid function, inhibits mineral absorption) or pasteurized milk (mucous-producing and irritating to the gut).

The Absorb Plus formula was developed by colon and bowel disorder expert Jini Patel Thompson to provide maximum nutrition to help build and strengthen your immune system and allow you to maintain or gain solid weight (muscle, not fat). Absorb Plus provides nutrients, supplements, protein (cold-extracted, lactose-free whey protein isolate) and carbohydrates (tapioca maltodextrin and natural fructose) in the most desirable forms and proportions, and in ratios that allow for optimum use and absorption. The liquid diet whey protein shake includes an extensive array of free-form amino acids (over 1000 mg L-Glutamine per serving!), with a superior vitamin and mineral profile (including trace minerals). Finally, Absorb Plus tastes so good, you can consume it up to 12 times a day if necessary!

There are approximately 10 servings per jar - sometimes a little bit more, sometimes a little bit less as Absorb Plus is packed by weight and there can be some settling during shipping and storage. Start with half a serving and build up gradually, allowing your body time to adjust to this unique (elemental) food source.

Here's What Jini Says

Absorb Plus is an elemental shake product that I formulated to use for an elemental diet, or a half-elemental diet, or just to supplement your diet with highly nutritious, easily absorbed nutrients - for those who cannot digest or absorb the nutrients from whole foods.

What Is An Elemental Diet?

An elemental diet is also referred to as a bowel rest diet. An elemental diet is a liquid diet that contains all the basic nutrients your body needs. The nutrients are in pre-digested form so they require very little digestion and the nutrients are easily and quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. In this way an elemental diet supplies your nutritional needs whilst giving your digestive system a rest. It is effective for people with colitis, Crohn's, diverticulitis, severe IBS, AIDS, the elderly, and some forms of cancer.

The stool that results from an elemental diet is greatly reduced in volume and usually liquid, therefore, it also gives your colon a rest from passing normal stool and thus allows colonic wounds to heal faster.

I used an elemental diet to recover from a bout of hemorrhaging that left me weighing 99 lbs (I'm 5'7"). In six weeks I weighed 135 pounds and was working out at the gym 3 times a week (my complete story and instructions on the type of elemental diet I used are in my book The IBD Remission Diet.)

What Is A Half-Elemental Diet?

A half-elemental diet is used when someone's IBD is still active and they are having difficulty tolerating foods and eating or absorbing adequate nutrition. But for whatever reason, they cannot (or do not want to) do a full elemental diet. So, instead, they consume half their daily calories as elemental diet shakes and the other half is comprised of easily tolerated foods.

In a 2006 clinical trial, doctors assessed 26 patients with Crohn’s Disease, who used a combination of an elemental diet for half of their food intake (900 – 1200 calories per day) and then whatever they wished for the other half (”free diet”). The control group consisted of 25 patients with Crohn’s Disease who just consumed an unrestricted diet, whatever they wanted to eat (100% free diet).

Then, they measured the recurrence of relapse (symptom flare-up) over a two year period. The relapse rate in the half elemental diet group was significantly lower – only 34.6% – versus a relapse rate of 64% in the free diet group.

Important: All elemental diet shakes are VERY sticky on the teeth. So be sure to brush after each shake - pay particular attention to the gum line - to avoid tooth decay.

Transitioning Off Elemental Shakes

Please know that when your digestive system has healed to the point where you can absorb nutrition and you are no longer underweight, then it is likely time to transition off Absorb Plus and onto a whey or veggie protein shake, or easily tolerated foods.

Not only is this cheaper, but it's better for ongoing gut health to avoid simple carbohydrates (like tapioca maltodextrin) when you are able to use superfoods like chia seed and flax seed instead. I have sourced excellent ones for you here, so be sure to check them out when you are ready.

After healing myself of serious Crohn's disease, consulting with people with all types of colon and bowel conditions for over ten years, and answering thousands of questions on my online forum, I have become internationally recognized as an expert on natural remedies for gastrointestinal disease. Even if you have tried every Crohn's, colitis, or diverticulitis treatment available without success, don't give up hope; my natural remedies for bowel and colon disease have helped tens of thousands of people worldwide and my books are sold in over 40 countries.

  1. Great Shakes 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Feb 2017

    The Berry Fusion has the best flavor. Easy to drink. I love also adding unsweetened cocoa.


  2. I'm finally gaining weight! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Nov 2016

    I added two shakes a day to my diet and have been able to gain 6 pounds in the last couple of weeks. I'm just under 5'7" and was under 100 pounds, so I'm REALLY grateful that I found Absorb plus. I'm also following the diarrhea diet and protocol from Listen to Your Gut which is also helping. Thanks so much for this product and your book!


  3. too sweet and gave me a stomach ache 1 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Oct 2016

    I bought 2 tubs of the berry and I had to throw them to the garbage. I tried to take it 4 times, but every time it gave me a stomach ache. It is too sweet and it tastes awful, chemicals.
    So sorry I bought them.

    RESPONSE FROM LTYG:

    Thank you for your feedback. If the berry is too sweet then you can cut it with the Unsweetened Vanilla (2 scoops of each) or blend it with fruit juice, or Fresh peach (skinned) if you're not on exclusive elemental diet to get exactly the amount of sweetness and strength of flavor you desire. I'll be happy to send you some samples of the other flavors, if you're willing to give it another try.

    Kind regards,
    customer service


  4. not appealing to my body 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Sep 2016

    I've given teh berry fusion another try this week - after having had it in an earlier batch. Again I feel sense of dread when I smell it and when I taste it. Even in small amounts it does feel no good to me - don't know maybe whatever gives it the taste that is supposed to resemble berries is not figured out yet - or something else in it


  5. Awesome 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th May 2016

    having just started an elemental diet, I was surprised by how good this tasted. I will be ordering this again!


  6. Super Sweet Candy Taste - HORRIBLE TASTE 1 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th May 2016

    If you have a sweet tooth, then this is the mix for you. Otherwise, it tastes horrible. Too sweet for me. I hate that I can't return it after having only ONE serving. It's the only food I'm eating other than bone broth. I wish there was a single serving to have tried it out prior. I'm grateful, nonetheless, for food, even if it tastes like I'm eating candy.

    The best for lack of sweetness is the Unsweetened Vanilla, which I like.


  7. Doesn't Taste Good at all - Pretty Disgusting 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Apr 2016

    I was disappointed with the taste.

    RESPONSE FROM LTYG:

    Hi there,

    We're sorry to hear that you aren't pleased with the taste of the Berry Fusion flavored Absorb Plus. Some people love it, some people hate it... But we urge you to try the French Vanilla and Chocolate Royale (if you haven't already) because we're confident that you'll like one of those! Thanks for the feedback.


  8. Berry Fusion 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Feb 2016

    The taste is different than I remember. I don't really like it. I hope you start carrying the Chocolate one again.


  9. Best protein shake available 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jun 2015

    Best taste, most natural, everything you want in shake and makes elemental diet tolerable and doable. I like this flavor best.


  10. Absorb plus (Berry Fusion) Nutrition Drink 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th May 2015

    This stuff is a life-saver. I somehow developed a problem with digesting my regular foods (dairy milk) and some food allergies (soy and gluten, it looks like), and was losing muscle weight until I got this stuff, and it is saving me. I can digest it just fine, and it's not causing any problems in me like my other regular foods were doing. I just wish I could afford to buy more of it.
