Absorb Plus tastes better, mixes better, absorbs faster, is better tolerated, is natural, and is not just fat & sugar!
Most elemental weight gain/maintenance products are available only in hospitals, pharmacies, or on prescription from your doctor. They are composed predominantly of fat (oil) and sugar. Unfortunately, the weight that is gained from these products tends to reflect the key components – ie. fat. It is very difficult to drink a sufficient amount of calories from these products as many people simply can’t tolerate the high oil content, or the taste. In addition, most contain artificial flavors and sweeteners – which research has shown to be harmful to the body. For people in extreme states of malnutrition, these products are usually pumped directly into the stomach via a ‘shunt’ or tube inserted through the skin into the stomach itself due to their unpalatable taste and composition.
There are many whey protein or food supplement products on the shelf in health stores or natural food stores, but they are rarely elemental (completely pre-digested) and thus they are less easily absorbed. And they too usually contain artificial flavors and sweeteners.
In contrast, Absorb Plus is composed of natural ingredients, flavors and sweeteners in elemental (pre-digested) form. Our customers constantly comment on how light and fresh tasting it is and we even have completely healthy people using it as their daily breakfast shake just because it’s such a nutritious, great-tasting product! Absorb Plus contains no oil so it’s ideal for people with a fat intolerance. But we do encourage our customers to add the amount of organic flax oil that they can tolerate (between 1 tsp to 1 tbsp. per shake) to reap the benefits of the essential fatty acids (EFAs) and anti-inflammatory action of the Omega-3s contained in this good fat. Due to the quality nutrition contained in Absorb Plus, you’ll gain solid weight (muscle, not fat!) if that’s your goal – of course, you can also use Absorb Plus to simply maintain your existing weight.
