Elemental Select™ powder is designed by clinicians for patients with digestive and gastrointestinal imbalances. When mixed with water, it provides a well tolerated form of liquid nutrition that is comprehensive, non-irritating, restorative, and reparative. All components are fully broken down into their basic “elemental” forms to meet physiologic requirements and core energy needs while enabling the digestive organs to rest, inflammation to optimize, and gut flora to normalize. In cases of bacterial overgrowth, elemental formulas are used to nourish the patient while contributing to optimal microbiome balance. Elemental Select™ is distinguished from other professional elemental formulas by its superior taste and quality. Its inherent sweetness and delicious natural vanilla flavour promote high patient compliance. Some patients will use it for a period of several days to weeks as the sole source of nutrition (i.e. a “full elemental diet”), with a duration of two weeks being fairly standard. Others may take Elemental Select™ once or twice per day (“partial elemental diet”) for a predetermined period of time as recommended by the prescribing healthcare practitioner. The product mixes easily with water or other liquid tolerated by the patient, and should be sipped slowly, rather than gulped. Further details regarding usage and dosing are outlined on the Elemental Select™ Product Technical Sheet. Elemental Select™ is the first professional elemental formula to contain Reginator®, a vegan, hypoallergenic, proprietary blend of free-form essential amino acids plus the gut-friendly, inflammation balancing, non-essential amino acid L-arginine. Reginator® has been researched to help increase and preserve muscle mass, even in non-exercising individuals, at the dose contained in two scoops of Elemental Select™. Preservation of muscle mass is critical for all aging individuals, and especially for patients with chronic intestinal inflammation and digestive issues that impair proper nutrient absorption. As the gut heals, nourishment may be enhanced, strength restored, and quality of life improved.
