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. Good product, but did not like the French Vanilla Flavor 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Feb 2017

    Originally I tried the berry flavor, it wasn't bad, certainly palatable, but the French Vanilla is just terrible. I've been having a nasty flare up and have been unable to tolerate any food so having only the French vanilla has been torture! Hopefully Chocolate arrives today!


  2. I like the vanilla and chocolate 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Aug 2016

    I like both of the chocolate flavors and the vanilla too. They taste good.
    I usually have one of these for breakfast and I put a banana in there too.


  3. I don't recommend this for gastric bypass patients with Crohn's. 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jun 2016

    I had a proximal gastric bypass 15 years ago. I was diagnosed with Crohn's 7 years ago. I cannot recommend this product for anyone with a gastric bypass. I just finished a 4-week elemental diet consisting of protein shakes because I could not find anything that absorbed better. Unfortunately, after drinking the Absorb Plus, I saw a lot of it come out in the toilet as white and foamy.

    I realize there are very, very few gastric bypass patients with Crohn's, so there probably will never be another issue with this. Moreover, there was not nearly enough protein in the Absorb Plus for my needs.

    On the positive side, it does taste good and mix well.


  4. Delicious! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st May 2016

    I love all things vanilla and this flavor does not disappoint. I have already ordered this flavor multiple times. I seriously wake up in the mornings looking forward to drinking it! Very yummy and I personally have had no negative side effects while drinking the shake mix. Would highly recommend ordering this flavor if you can't decide which one to get.


  5. I love vanilla, it taste great 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Apr 2016

    Hello there, This is my 1st order of Absorb plus and I can tell you it taste great
    I've diagnosed with IBD 1 year ago but suffered last three years with lots of bleeding, pain and can't eat regular diet anymore
    My GI doctor prescribed some meds and they don't work, I'm on Jini's Absorb plus for a week now but still bleeding at times I guess it's too early to see the desire results so I will update later


  6. tastey not too sweet 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Mar 2016

    I like this flavor second to Chocolate Royale and way better than Berry Fusion.


  7. Great tasting :) 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Feb 2016

    Feel energized after drinking this! Surely these are the benefits of all of the great vitamins in this mix.


  8. Tastes great 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2016

    This is a very good tasting supplement and very satisfying as well. I often add a little organic cocoa powder if I'm in a chocolatey mood.


  9. After taste not great 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Dec 2015

    To early to tell only on 4th day and I am only using it once a day to help increase my protein intake.My blood work shows that by body is not absorbing protein even though my Crohn's with medication is in remission.


  10. Okay but not Great 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Aug 2015

    I like it but liked the previous formula better. It had better taste, and I felt better on it.
