UltraInflamX® 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 Crohn’s 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® Medical Food compare to other products or approaches?
A frequent target pathway to influence the inflammatory response in IBD management is the immune system. This product contains ingredients that uniquely and gently address underlying activities associated with chronic inflammation—without immune suppression and with an excellent predicted safety profile. 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® Medical Food work?
This product provides targeted, research-based nutrients to modulate inflammatory 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 without interfering with healthy functioning. An unhealthy diet (highly processed foods, low nutrients) and common food sensitivities may also influence GI 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® Medical Food typically recommended?
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® Medical Food?
People whose quality of life is affected by IBD ( ulcerative colitis , Crohn's disease).
Q.Why is UltraInflamX® Medical Food safe?
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.
