Physicians Elemental Diet Powder

Physicians Elemental Diet Powder



Integrative Therapeutics

Gastrointestinal/digestive impairment (GDI) conditions are characterized by a limited or impaired capacity to digest, absorb, or metabolize ordinary foods or certain nutrients. The existence of distinctive nutritional requirements associated with these GDI conditions drives the need for the specific dietary management of these patients while under the care of a medical professional. Physicians’ Elemental Diet is an elemental powder medical food intended for use under medical supervision for the dietary management of patients with GDI conditions. Physicians’ Elemental Diet is specifically formulated to contain free form amino acids, partially hydrolyzed carbohydrate and readily assimilated medium chain triglycerides to aid in their absorption from the GI lumen.

Therefore, Physicians’ Elemental Diet requires minimal digestive functionality for assimilation and meets the distinctive nutritional requirements of patients with impaired gastrointestinal function. The formula contains a balanced blend of macronutrients fortified with essential vitamins, minerals and electrolytes to assure comprehensive support as a sole source of nutritional intake for limited periods.

Intended for use under medical supervision for the dietary management of patients who have limited or impaired capacity to digest, absorb, or metabolize ordinary foods or certain nutrients. The elemental diet is designed for the dietary management of irritable bowel, Crohn’s disease, 1-6 small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)7-9 and moderate to severe impaired gastrointestinal function.3, 10-12
