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.)

Looks like you should talk to your Doctor before deciding to take it.

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.

    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".  
    • Thanks cyclinglady & manasota! I appreciate it. I came to give an update...... I'm still 99% itch free. I get a "place" like a bug bite once in a while that itches and I just use the prescription steroid cream on it & that takes care of the itch. My rash is healing up rapidly everywhere. Almost clear skin now! Yaaaaayyyyyyyyyy! Now for a rundown of the "treatment". For 20 days I took a 100mg doxycycline twice a day. Then we upped it to two 100mg doxy twice per day. I took those for 5 days & made rapid progress and the itching stopped. The doxy was getting my tummy though. It was getting really rough despite my eating yogurt. So on day 6 and day 7, I took two 100mg doxy in the am but in the pm I just took 1 of them. On day 7, I was nauseous for hours on end. So since I was still doing well without itching and the rash was healing everywhere, I decided to cut back some more. On days 8, 9, & 10 I have only taken two 100mg doxy in the am and none at night. I'm doing good and my tummy is much, much happier! No more nausea!  I'll update as things go along.
    • Many things can damage the small intestine besides celiac disease: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ Happily, I can share that I became a Great-Aunt this week for the first time  to a charming little boy. Sadly, my lovely 19 year old niece was diagnosed yesterday with Crohn's.  She had so many symptoms of celiac disease, I was sure she had it.  Actually, I was hoping that she'd have it, because Crohn's can be much worse.  At least there is a "cure" or known trigger for it -- gluten!   Anyway, your daughter might be suffering from something other than celiac disease.  It is possible.  It could be a food intolerance (e.g. milk).  My niece has suffered for years with periodic episodes of abdominal pain, vomiting, etc.  She doesn't have all the "classic" Crohn's Disease symptoms either, yet a recent pill cam revealed a lot!  Her endoscopy was normal.  Celiac panel normal.  Gallbladder scan normal (non-functioning gallbladder is a family curse).  My heart goes out to her, but at least we know what we are dealing with.  Will she ever get celiac disease?  It could happen. Keep advocating, Mom.  That's what I kept telling my SIL.  I also provided my SIL  a family health history tree that each GI was happy to receive.  Unfortunately, no one has had Crohn's in the family.  But, at least it allowed him to test my nieces gallbladder and for celiac disease (a full panel,  mind you).   It would not hurt to get a second opinion.
