• Nourishes the cells of the colonic mucosa.
• Features low-allergy-potential rice protein concentrate supplemented with L-lysine HCl and L-threonine for an improved protein source.
• Formulated with rice syrup solids as a natural energy source.
• Features a readily absorbed and metabolized lipid source.
• Optimized with the prebiotic IMO to selectively nourish beneficial bacteria, including lactobacilli and bifidobacteria.
• IMO is a gentle fiber that is naturally sweet but has a low-glycemic index.
• Formulated with nutrients such as zinc gluconate and L-glutamine to nutritionally support gastrointestinal mucosa integrity.
