Jini Says: Absorb Plus can be used either exclusively as an elemental diet, or together with regular food. Elemental shakes were first developed by NASA as a way to feed astronauts in space; because they provided all their nutrient requirements, yet resulted in minimal fecal matter. Since then, the medical community has utilized elemental, or enteral nutritional shakes for various conditions - like inducing remission in Crohn's or colitis, clearing an intestinal obstruction or diverticulitis blockage, or for people who have trouble chewing, swallowing, or absorbing nutrients from their food.
In choosing your Absorb Plus flavor, please note that SIMPLY is sweetened with dextrose and stevia, UNSWEETENED has flavors but no added sweeteners, and the rest of the flavors are sweetened with natural fructose and stevia.
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.
NOTE: Buy six 2.2lb tubs and get 1 FREE! Add seven 2.2lb tubs to your cart and the cost of one will automatically be deducted from the total.
