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 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.

  2. Great results 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2018

    I got this product for my son who has UC/Crohn's and his weight has been on the rise since he started. In 2.5 months he has gained around 25 pounds of healthy weight. He uses it as a meal replacement and a post workout shake. He is also doing the hot castor oil packs as he has strictures. Combined he is doing very very well. I'm thankful that I stumbled across this website.

  3. Crohn's disease relief 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Apr 2017

    I purchased this product for a friend of mine who suffers from Crohn's disease - he swears by it. Living in South Africa made me nervous that the product would take a long time to be delivered. However, on the Easter weekend I not only received after hours support but to my surprise, the product arrived at my friend's home 4 days later - not 4 working days later - 4 days later. Outstanding service! Thank you

  4. Amazing Results and Taste 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Apr 2017

    OK, I may be a little early on this since I just started Absorb Plus 2 days ago, but I have been having on and off issues with my UC for 6-8 months now. The only "off" was the few weeks I did 30-20-10mg each week Prednisone tapers a few times during that period.
    It all started with really bad food poisoning in the fall (I am still going to have a full stool test to see if anything pathogenic is causing this-basic doctor ordered test on it came back negative).
    I have tried many alternative cures since I had been allergic to Mesalamine from the beginning when I was diagnosed 10 years ago, of which most time I have remained mainly in remission once we stopped that intial flare (after back surgery and pain meds which may have been the spark to awaken the IBD beast). I have always taken Boswellia Serrate 3xday as my alternative to Mesalamine and Probiotics 2xday as well. Added Qing Dai powder 2xday 2 months ago, still had some bleeding when I went off Prednisone this time. I slowly starting getting looser bowels as I was off it and getting worried I couldnt stop it naturally. Naturopath said give it a little time and if bleeding wasnt getting worse and worse see if your body just needs to adjust to coming off the prednisone.
    I happened across this site and ordered Absorb Plus Simply Chocolate to try. I tried a half dose to see how I would tolerate it. It was fine. Next day I tried 3/4 serving (3 scoops) in the AM then my Udos oil arrived at noon so I had 3 scoops again in the PM with 2 tsp of Udos oil. Next day did same dosing AM and PM.
    The next day I had soft stool but no bleeding and went less than the 5-7 times I had been. Maybe only 3 times, soft stool - no visible blood. That night able to pass gas without fear (Those of you with UC and Crohns know what I mean!) The next day after that (today) I didnt go yet as of 9am which is odd but awesome because usually I had been awakened the past two weeks after going off the Pred. to have a BM with a pink mucus mixture then 2-3 semi-loose BM's before leaving for work, some bleeding some not. Then 2-3 more at work.
    On another note, I juice once daily with apple-carrot-red cabbage as recommended by a Naturopath and used to do a PM juice of apple-carrot-celery, but dropped that off 2 days ago when I read Jini's book that juicing might not be great for those in a decent flare, i cut back to one a day, keeping the cabbage one that is supposed to help with good gut bacteria. I also drink Nettle tea in the morning for Vitamin boost and Red Rasberry Leaf Tea in afternoon for its Styptic and vitamin/mineral properties.
    I'll try to keep an update going for those suffering through the same issues I have been. I know how frustrating this can be. Thanks- 41 Yr Old Male
