Restart the Gut with UltraGI Replenish

UltraGI Replenish™ Medical Food is specially formulated to support the increased nutritional needs of patients with compromised gut function and malabsoprtion associated with some of the most challenging digestive disorders.

Designed to restart the gut by restoring a healthy foundation , UltraGI Replenish offers patients a targeted nutritional approach to replenish the intestinal lining and support the beneficial gastrointestinal (GI) microbiota established through early noursihment.

This advanced formula features a key prebiotic, known as 2'-fucosyllactose (2'-FL), that is identical to one found in breast milk. Breakthrough research suggests 2'-FL may be significant to promoting a healthy balance of beneficial GI microbiota.

In addition, this landmark formula features a unique combination of macro- and micronutrients approach unlike nay other.

Healthy Beginnings & New Opportunities

A healthy GI system is the body's first line of defense, yet many common complaints take root in the gut. According to the national Institutes of Health, approximately 70 million people across the US suffer from some type of digestive condition, *which meand 1 out of every 5 people may be affected by GI distrubances.

In addition to genetics, factors such as unhealthy diets, stress, and certain medications may contribute to the development and/or potentiation of compromised epithelial integrity (intestinal permeability) and dysbiosis (unhealthy balance of bacteria) in the small and large intestines. With proper early nourishment and healthy habits maintained into adulthood, many influencers for immune and lifestyle-related digestive disorders may be diminished.

While no one can really start over, nutritionl science is making it easier than ever to give your patients the most pwoerful "gut restart" possible.


A Fresh Start with PreBiome 2'-FL™

For formula optimization, UltraGI Replenish features a prebiotic blend of a nature-identical human milk oligosaccharide (HMO, as PreBiome 2'-FL™) and isomaltoobligosaccharides (IMOs). Prebiotic HMOs and IMOs are non-digestible carbohydrates that act as food for beneficial microbes, including probiotics, and encourage the production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs). Many adults with compromised gut function may not obtain enough prebiotic fiber in their diet to support healthy bacteria in the gut and increase the production of SCFAs.

  • 2'-FL is one of the most abundant oligosaccharides in breast milk.
  • HMOs, including 2'-FL, support selective growth of certain bifidobactera to promote a healthy balance of beneficial microbiota.
  • Groundbreaking preliminary research suggests that some HMOs, including 2'-FL, may beneficially influence intestinal recognition processes to help protect against colonization of potentially harmful microorganisms (see Figure1)
  • PreNiome 2'-FL™ is a nature-identical HMO

Figure 1. HMO can serve as decoy receptors to prevent the binding of unwanted microorganisms.

Tender Care with a Bioavailable L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine Dipeptide

Healthy gut function starts with a healthy gut lining. But typical diet may not provide adequate amounts of glutamine in patients with compromised gut function to support the cells that make up the gut lining (known as intestinal epithelial cells). Compromised function of these cells may negatively affect absorption of nutrients.

UltraGI Replenish is formulated with clinically tested L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine dipeptide also known as Sustamine® which helps maintain the integrity of intestinal epithelia cells. This clinically tested glutamine source may also offer an advantage in terms of stability, solubility, and absorption efficiency.
  • Dipeptides are absorbed more efficiently than free amino acids, therefore requiring less energy and promoting faster cell uptake (see Figure 2)
  • In a preliminary clinical stidy, Sustamine® demonstrated greater increases in plasma concentrations of L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine dipeptide when compared to a standard supplemental L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine (see Figure 3)

Figure 2: Sustamine® L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine dipeptide is designed to reduce time and energy needed to transport amino acids through cell barriers.
Figure 3: v - up to 224% better absorption than standard L-glutamine

In a preliminary, randomized cross-over design clinical study of 8 healthy men, Sustamine® showed statistically significant increases in both peak and total plasma concentration levels compared to equivalent doses of a standard supplemental L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine, indicating greater transfer from the gut to plasma.

Gentle Nutrition for Those in Need

Patients with compromised gut function are at greater risk of protein-energy malnutrition and potential insufficiencies in essential micronutrients (e.g., vitamin D). During times of distress, they may not be able to consume a "typical" diet and may also benefit from strategic changes in carbohydrate intake, including a diet low in refined sugars and adequate dietary fiber consumption.

UltraGI Replenish represents an unprecedented level of product development and research at Metagenics to deliver a unique combination of ingredients for a truly forward-thinking approach to supporting the specific needs of patients with compromised gut function with digestive disorders including malabsorption.
