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-Cysteine 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!

This product listing is for a sample jar containing ONE serving. You can start with half a serving, if you like, 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 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Nov 2017

    First off, the taste is fine, even good. At first it seemed a bit "different" and wasn't sure I would like it, but after a few sips I realized it was so good I drank it down more quickly than I had planned. My system seemed to tolerate it just fine, and I have a very finicky system. I tried the Chocolate Royal and the Vanilla. Both were good. I haven't decided whether to move forward yet, because of the expense, but if money were not a concern, I'd definitely try the longer-term effort.

  2. Amazing 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2017

    I ordered the sample pack and it arrived almost immediately. I made a shake and saw first shake results and ordered 2 full containers of the unsweetened Vanilla added a ripe banana. Great tasting. I gained a pound in a couple days and it allowed me to slowly add regular healthy food in small amts without symptoms.
    For me these shakes work like a dream. I had normal bowel movement for the first time in 2 months. My energy returned and after 2 to 3 shakes I was on a roll. Thank you Jini!


    Thanks so much for posting the review - it's great to hear that you're please with the product!

    Have a great day!

  3. Best Elemental Diet Formula 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Aug 2015

    I've really enjoyed the samples of Absorb Plus. Both the chocolate and vanilla taste wonderful! I've been mixing them with my own unsweetened protein powder b/c I have SIBO and need to be cautious of my fructose intake. I've ordered larger tubs of the unsweetened vanilla, and I'm excited to try that. I've been trying a semi-elemental diet in which I do the shakes and then some regular food. The days when I do more shakes and less food are the days I feel the best. Thinking about trying the full elemental diet and hopefully gaining some weight! As a health coach, I will recommend this to my clients.

  4. Wow! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Dec 2014

    I have only had this product for a few days but I am hopeful. I have been battling a Crohn's disease flare for about 5 months. Been on all kinds of meds, diets, etc... nothing working so far. Decided I had to start drinking some nutrition supplements. Tried some of the drug store ones, but decided the casein in them may be giving me a problem. This one has no lactose, no Casein, no gluten and loads of protein. I don't know of another product out there with all of that. The taste is pretty good considering all the nutrients you are getting with it.
    I received the most beautiful card and some lovely gifts with my first order. It is clear this company is all about helping to heal people. Thank you so much for sharing this product with us and your book as well.

  5. Chocolate Royale tastes awful 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Dec 2014

    I'll reserve judgment on the effectiveness of the product and the taste of the vanilla, which we have not tried yet, but neither my wife nor I could stomach the taste of the chocolate. It's really hard to believe all these other comments speak so highly on the great taste. We definitely did not find that to be the case. I am only giving it 2 stars in the event that it does some good, which still remains to be seen.

  6. Made me very ill 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Nov 2014

    I suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and lupus, so my immune system is out of whack. I got very ill from drinking these shakes (especially the chocolate) but I believe that my body will be able to tolerate them in the future, once I'm not having such a bad flare up. I was impressed by the pleasant taste.

  7. Best Nutritional Shake Ever 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Sep 2014

    Healing, appealing and rejuvenating. Thank you for this product! In Canada I found a place to order it from Vancouver, where I do not have to be taxed with Duty at Customs. That is the sad part. Customs can and does tax many items over 60 dollars and the shipping fees if ordered in the US, to ship to Canada, are quite substantial too. I wish there were more places in Canada to order and buy this product, because I will be using it for a long time.

  8. THIS IS AWESOME! THANK YOU! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Aug 2013

    Finally! A nutrition drink that my body can assimilate and handle wonderfully, and they taste really great as well! Thank you so much, Jini Patel Thompson, for all your hard work and the information you have provided. You are truly a blessing to those of us with Crohn's, etc. These shakes are pure sustenance and provide energy!

  9. So happy I found IBS Diets and Meals that work for me! 5 Star Review

  10. Try Absorb Plus for When you are sick! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Dec 2012

    I know that when I am sick or my kids are sick, we rarely eat everything we should. My biggest source of stress is when they are sick, they don't get their nutrition and can't keep anything down. I heard about this from a friend with IBS and though I would try it. It is easy on the stomach and easy to mix with liquids. So far so good!
