I recently created this presentation about the formulation of Absorb Plus shakes on behalf of IMIX Nutrition, and it’s chock full of good info – so of course, I wanted to share it with the LTYG community as well!

I go into a bit of my backstory, being diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, and what drove me to create Absorb Plus – and I encourage you to watch if you’re interested in learning more about:

  • An Elemental vs. a Semi-elemental diet
  • Elemental vs. Polymeric formulas
  • Protein Component Challenges in an Elemental Diet
  • Definitions of Elemental Foods (What’s Allowed)
  • Elemental Diet Difficulties
  • Other Diet Options for Bowel Rest
  • And what Makes Absorb Plus Different?

**Note, we have had many readers write in asking if they can add more than the recommended number of scoops in their shakes – and if there are any downsides to this. In my book, The IBD Remission Diet, I talk about why I formulated Absorb Plus to have roughly 27 grams of protein per serving. I based that calculation on bodybuilders’ protein intake. Because if you ingest more protein than your body can utilize, it will excrete it via urine. Thus, I recommend my readers not ingest more than 1 shake per hour for efficient protein utilization. And be sure to drink your shakes slowly for maximum nutrient retention/utilization!
