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. 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 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 
• Also contains 10 mcg Vitamin K2 (as MK-7; first identified by Dr. Weston A. Price as “Activator X”) and 100 mcg of potassium citrate per serving 
• 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. Innovative Product! & Favorite One of my Daughter's, 2 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Jan 2018

    Meant to add that my daughter's stomach did NOT bother her at all on the Vanilla shakes (altho she only had a few of the Vanilla), but she prefers the Chocolate flavor, and even tho her tummy bothered her a little after a few weeks of the Chocolate shakes (one a day), we resolved that problem by cutting down to half the amount (2 scoops).

  2. Innovative Product! & Favorite One of my Daughter's 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Jan 2018

    My daughter Linae is 16 & was diagnosed with Crohn's when she was 14. She's been doing pretty good all year & on NO meds whatsoever. Our fam. has always been health conscious since having to train in pro sports in the past. Linae started on the Absorb-Plus shakes but only managed to take about one a day. For some strange reason, the Berry flavor one bothered her tummy. I thought it was an isolated incident but then it happened the 2nd time a few days later. Then I gave her the Vanilla. Then a week later I gave her the Berry, & her tummy hurt a little the 3rd time. So rather than waste the Berry powder, I decided to mix a little of it into the rest of the Vanilla powder tub & give to Linae. She did not know it was the Berry since the shake color was white. Once again her tum hurt a little so I've now totally stopped the Berry. After about 2 wks, she has only had the chocolate & likes it, but now sometimes even the chocolate bothers her tum a little, so what we've done is cut down from 4 scoops to 2 scoops & she tolerates it well (just once a day).

  3. No more pain 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Nov 2017

    I had Nissen Fundoplicaton done 4 years ago and also IBS. I have had so much pain and many issues with swallowing and digestion. This product was my last resort.
    I started November 1st on a completely elemental diet and I have had NO pain, swelling, bloating. Nothing.
    I have had small meals here and there and no issues. There is real truth in giving you gut time to heal. I am still following the diet, until my doctors figure out what to do. But in the meantime I am pain free for the first time in years.


    Thank you for posting the review. We're happy to hear that you are satisfied with the Absorb Plus. We appreciate the feedback and wish you all the best!.

  4. YUM! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Nov 2017

    I ordered the Chocolate Royale after reading that the Berry flavor was too sweet. It is delicious. I then ordered another and the Berry and they are both delicious. I even mix the two together to change things up a bit. I feel so much better and this was my last resort. Two thumbs up!


    Thank you for posting the review. We're happy to hear that you are satisfied with the Absorb Plus flavors. We appreciate the feedback and wish you all the best!.

  5. Awesome product - love the chocolate 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Oct 2017

    My husband has this for breakfast every day and loves it. I have to keep him in tubs of chocolate. He loves the flavor and it is easy on his tummy. If he would just eat this all the time instead of food the rest of the day, he would be really healthy.


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

    Have a great day!

  6. BEST Protein drink I have ever had in my life! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Aug 2017

    I've had several different protein drinks over my many years and this is the BEST I've ever had...I have Crohn's disease and have been on many different medications/tests where you have to drink nasty radio active stuff! So I'm sensitive to with the flavor of drinks. THIS IS AMAZING and the price point is normal for protein drinks...this is YUMMY!

  7. Absorb Plus Chocolate Royale and Simply Chocolate 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jul 2017

    Excellent products, and great flavors.

  8. Understated 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Sep 2016

    My daughter will soon start a prescribed elemental diet by her GI specialist who promised us that they could get the insurance to pay for the product because they had another family get the same insurance to cover.

    Well, they had all kinds of excuses for not qualifying Absorb plus, but they will pay for products already in liquid form, which means we will continue to pay out of our pocket, but my daughter only likes drinking Absorb plus and is having good results with her energy.
