As Absorb Plus is a completely elemental (pre-digested) product, it can be used as part of an exclusively elemental diet. Elemental diets are used to stop intestinal bleeding, induce disease remission and heal the Gastro-Intestinal (GI) tract.

For more information on following a strictly elemental diet, see Jini Patel Thompson’s book, THE IBD REMISSION DIET (you can read Chapter One FREE, on-line).

Using Absorb Plus as part of an elemental diet?

  • I am using Absorb Plus for the IBD Remission Diet (full elemental diet) for my thirteen year old son with chronic 24/7 nausea, cramping, and bloating. I would like to know if my son can continue drinking our homemade kombucha throughout the day while on the full elemental diet. Since broth, jello, and juice are allowed, would adding homemade kombucha still qualify as the IBD Remission Diet (full elemental diet)? Thank you.

    1. Hello Brooke,

      The Kombucha would not qualify when doing a full elemental diet if you added it in. I am unsure what you would plan to make the Kombucha out of, but even after he finishes the full elemental diet and starts slowly adding in new foods and drinks we would caution you on adding in anything such as simple sugars while he is still healing. The IBD Remission Diet book gives good information on what to add in and when after completing the full elemental diet. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Hope your son is able to feel better soon.

      Kind Regards,
      Customer Care
