I was just curious whether or not anyone has used this product:

 

(below is just information on it that I copied/pasted from the Metagenics website)

UltraInflamX® PLUS 360° is a medical food formulated to provide specialized nutritional support for patients with compromised gut function reflective of an inflammatory response as seen in ulcerative colitis and Crohns disease. Provided in a low-allergenic-potential rice protein base, this formula is enhanced with antioxidant nutrients, selenium, zinc, calcium, folate, and vitamin B12 to address increased nutrient needs and potential deficiencies in these patients. L-glutamine is added to support intestinal mucosal cells. This formula is acceptable for an enteral diet that excludes allergens. Enteral and exclusion diets are often necessary for extended periods for patients experiencing irritable bowel conditions.

Q.
How does UltraInflamX® Plus 360º Medical Food compare to other products or approaches?
A.

The rice protein base has a lower allergenic potential than many common protein sources, which (along with careful formulation and manufacturing) helps make this product suitable for use with an eating plan to reduce potential GI stressors and inflammatory triggers. This product contains only natural ingredients for a safer long-term approach, and has been clinically reviewed at the FMRC.

Q.
How does UltraInflamX® Plus 360º Medical Food work?
A.

This product provides targeted, research-based nutrients to modulate inflammatory and pain processes associated with IBD—with an excellent predicted safety profile. It contains a combination of plant-based ingredients that are designed to work with your body (not against it) to inhibit triggers for inflammation and pain without interfering with health functioning. An unhealthy diet (highly processed foods, low nutrients) and common food sensitivities may also influence gastrointestinal health, inflammation, and related symptoms. This product is recommended for use with a modified elimination diet—a healthful balance that limits consumption of foods with increased allergen potential and reduces dietary chemical exposure.

Q.
How long is UltraInflamX® Plus 360º Medical Food typically recommended?
A.

A typical introductory program is 25 days (with a modified elimination diet) to evaluate progress. Some people may report positive changes in just a few weeks, but individual results may vary. This product may also be recommended for long-term support. For best results, follow your health care professional's guidelines.

Q.
Who would benefit from UltraInflamX® Plus 360º Medical Food?
A.

People whose quality of life is affected by IBD ( ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease) and associated chronic inflammation and pain. This formula may offer an advantage for extraintestinal pain and inflammation.

Q.
Why is UltraInflamX® Plus 360º Medical Food safe?
A.

Medical foods must contain ingredients that are generally regarded as safe (GRAS) or FDA approved, and Metagenics continually evaluates formula ingredients in concert with current nutritional research for optimal safety and effectiveness. Plus, Metagenics' manufacturing facility has 3 certifications for good manufacturing practices to ensure the highest quality. Key active ingredients in this formula were developed through the ExpresSyn Process® that sets a new standard in clinical certainty for natural products via demonstrated efficacy, bioavailability, and a high level of predicted safety. (This product is not recommended for those taking anti-coagulant medications. UltraInflamX® Medical Food may be an excellent alternative. This product is suitable for those who may be sensitive to lactose or soy. See online catalog for complete allergen information.)

I used it for several months under doctor supervision. I found that I craved it in a strange way. My doctor theorized that the craving could be from getting nutrition during a healing process. After about 4 months use I got sick (no idea if it was related to using it or some random illness that no one else in family had) and stopped using it. I still crave it, years after using it! I liked it. It may have helped my recovery, but I don't have anything substantial for reporting if it was good, bad or indifferent. I just really liked taking it! My super sensitive daughter was also prescribed it, but she absolutely refused to take it saying it made her belly hurt. I tried and tried to get her to take it, but she hated it.

    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I agree Katie, the gluten challenge isn't worthwhile for some people.  Regardless of your test results, I think you know the answer is not to eat gluten anymore.  I hope you recover quickly from the damage.

      I am glad you are feeling so much better!  Your posting will encourage others.  Thank you!
    • Last posted 2013 - Improving health
      When I first started this journey, roughly 11 yrs ago with symptoms, I had no clue. Eventually, having no luck with doctors (hypochondriac or psychosomatic), I googled my symptoms over and over looking for something... ANYTHING... that would give me a clue. Among other issues, my insides would not move, I was turning gray, felt like death, and had a persistent cough. I can't remember who but someone had posted on the forum and I found some of my symptoms. Eureka, I immediately began a gluten-free diet to see if it made any difference. Of course that was a journey, not realizing what products contained gluten. Long story shorter – first I went gluten-free, symptoms began to reappear, then it was soy (first organic was okay, then not), symptoms reappeared, took out corn, symptoms reappeared, then it was all grains. So the last couple of years I have been grain-free plus no sulphates. Actually, truth be told, my Celiac pharmacist gave me the recipe for health. I asked her if she liked a certain product. She answered, “I don't know, I have never tried it.” I asked her what she did use. She replied, “Nothing out of a box, a bag, or a bottle.” And that has pretty much been my life for the last couple of years. There is the odd product I try but it always has an after effect and I have to way the consequences against the enjoyment of it. I am one of those who react to 1 crumb in the butter, flour dust in the air, sulphates in anything, sometimes things that don't even seem like they would be a problem, like avocados and blueberries when I am contaminated. January 2016 I began this recitation. It is now May 5th, 2016 - Here I am 4 months later and I feel like screaming to anyone who will listen, “Things are improving!! My gut is healing!!” So what happened?? Someone suggested digestive enzymes. My insides were so compromised that I couldn't eat much besides fruit, veggies, and meat; all plain, all without being touched by people other than me. I could barely stand salt at times when I was compromised. Haven't been to a restaurant in years since I am not in a city that would have one to cater or understand this much of a problem. I started digestive enzymes but I read the label wrong and started with 5 first thing in the morning. Whatever... I began to notice improvements in what I could eat. Not anything different but just that I could eat without feeling ill or having my gut shut down. I stayed on those for a month and a half.. then I picked up a parasite from someone living in a very unclean apartment and visiting there and helping to clean. Well, that was a huge battle. I had to eat to discourage parasites. But in the process my insides began to heal dramatically. I was eating blackberries, drinking garlic keefir (which I couldn't have done 5 mths ago and gave me the first clue my insides had improved substantially), drinking oil of oregano or peppermint oil drops in a glasses of water, eating cabbage and green roughage. Drinking water with apple cider vinegar in it and Aloe Vera juice. After a couple of weeks my insides were a whole different story. I had a feeling of wellness that I hadn't had for years! I FELT like trying to eat something different. So I decided to try Gluten-free Rice Chex. Haven't had them in years.... and I am so happy! I can eat them!! (Not to say they are healthy, cause they are processed crap) but I didn't get sick and that was the amazing part. So now I am beginning to try a few things that would have set me back previously, I have made my own crème brulee because I have always been able to eat eggs. But the sugar was causing problems, but now it's okay. The issue I have now is that I want to try things too fast so I am having to exercise restraint. So here is it – parasites are very common, everyone has them however whether they cause problems depends on your immune system. Does it not makes sense that they would cause leaky gut? An over abundance in the gut would destroy gut tissue and take nutrients from a person and possibly put holes in the gut leading to food reactions? Digestive enzymes help to destroy the protective coating around parasites. Foods that discourage them or kill them are blackberries, garlic, cabbage, oil of oregano, peppermint oil, aloe vera juice, Braggs apple cider vinegar and more (google to find). I found medication didn't do anything so I turned to all the other. So this is how it is today. I don't suggest it is the answer to anyone else's problems but when I found this site, hidden in the posts was the beginning of the answers for me.  I may still be gluten, soy, corn intolerant but I am feeling so good now and I just thought I would tell someone.  I just wanted to share. Thanks for reading.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      Not to mention my hips and knees are killing me and I have really bad calf pains and horrible bloating after just 3 days of glutening. I don't think I could live like this for a whole week.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I saw my gi today and he said to not worry about eating gluten. I have abdominal pain in the small intestine area and referred pain in my back, indicating pretty bad damage. So I'll just go without the gluten and do the genetic testing if needed.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
