Metagenics Natural Dutch Chocolate Flavor UltraMeal Plus 360 Stevia Rice Medical Food - 24.7 oz. (1 lb 8.7 oz.) (700 g)
Metagenics UltraMeal Plus 360 Stevia Rice is a medical food formulated to provide specialized, multi-mechanistic nutritional support for patients with hypercholesterolemia by supplying a combination of Acacia nilotica extract, reduced iso-alpha acids (RIAA), and plant sterols. UltraMeal Plus 360 Stevia Rice Medical Food (chocolate flavor) is a reduced calorie and sugar formula, containing almost 26% less calories and 86% less sugar than the regular UltraMeal Plus 360 Rice (chocolate flavor) formula. Calorie content has been reduced from 190 to 140 calories per serving and sugars were reduced from 14g to 2g per serving. Metagenics' UltraMeal Plus 360 Stevia Rice Medical Food uses stevia and eyrthritol as low-calorie, natural sweeteners. Eyrthritol has been shown to have less gastrointestinal effects than other sugar alcohols.
- Proprietary formula features selective kinase response modulators (SKRMs)—as RIAA and Acacia nilotica extract—clinically shown in a preliminary study at the Metagenics Functional Medicine Research Center to improve fasting insulin and lipid parameters.
- Features 2 grams of plant sterols per serving in accordance with NIH recommendations.
- Provides high quality foundation nutrition for patients with hypercholesterolemia.
Each serving of UltraMeal Plus 360 Stevia Rice provides:
- 15 grams of low-allergenic-potential rice protein: an easily digestible source of high quality protein suitable for those who want to avoid soy and milk products.
- 2g of plant sterols per serving. The NIH recommends consumption of 2 grams of plant sterols to promote healthy cholesterol levels. Food containing at lease 0.65g per serving of plant sterol esters, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 1.3g as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.
- Selective kinase response modulators (SKRMs) in the forms of RIAA and Acacia nilotica extract.
- 5-methyl tetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) - a body-ready, nature-identical folate.
- Comprehensive micronutrient profile including B vitamins for patients with hypercholesterolemia.
The National Cholesterol Education Panel of the National Institutes of Health recommends a healthy diet and regular exercise, along with the consumption of 2 grams of plant sterols and 10-25 grams of fiber daily, to promote cardiovascular health.

Chronic Illness Solutions: Helping Patients Return to Good Health
Today, chronic health conditions such as high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease have become so common that most people don't remember what it's like to be in excellent health. And if they're not feeling their best, they can't be their best.
In truth, many chronic health conditions are preventable. They're the result of years of poor eating habits, lack of exercise, and prolonged exposure to stress. And leading health organizations now tell us that by returning to a healthier lifestyle-by getting the right nutrients, becoming active, and learning to manage the stressors in life-many of these conditions can be prevented, managed, or even reversed.
The solution seems so simple, and yet, the incidence of chronic illness is continuing to rise at an alarming rate. At Metagenics, they're aiming to change all that.
Addressing Chronic Illness with Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes
Metagenics' groundbreaking therapeutic lifestyle change (TLC) programs have helped tens of thousands of chronic illness sufferers all over the world regain their health-so they can once again enjoy their lives to the fullest. Not quick, short term fixes, these programs work because they're focused on helping people develop healthy, life-long habits that they can easily incorporate into their busy schedules. Metagenics' TLC programs are available only from specially trained licensed health care professionals-the people qualified to recommend and tailor a regimen that's unique to each individual's needs.
Patient Success Depends on Provider Success
Let's face it. Most doctors' offices have neither the time nor the expertise to provide the individualized lifestyle counseling that's necessary to effect real change. In designing Metagenics' TLC program, Metagenics asked health care providers to tell them what it would take to implement TLC successfully in their practice. The answer was teamwork-getting support staff involved, enlisting practice extenders and ensuring smooth office flow. Today, providers who implement Metagenics' TLC programs overwhelmingly report that they're busier and more successful than ever in helping patients achieve their desired health outcomes.
Addressing the Root Cause of Illness through Science-Based Nutrition
Back in 1983, Metagenics had a big idea: the right nutrition could help people realize their best health possible by positively influencing what makes them unique-their genes. Metagenics called it realizing "genetic potential" for good health. Today, it's known as the science of nutrigenomics-the study of food as one of the most important environmental modifiers of gene expression in determining health and disease patterns. Through Metagenics' substantial and ongoing commitment to nutrigenomic research, they've been able to identify natural compounds with powerful therapeutic applications, to be used in their science-based TLC programs, medical foods, and nutraceuticals.
Setting the Standard in Research, Quality & Innovation
Knowing that professionals rely on Metagenics to make people feel better isn't something they take lightly. It's the reason Metagenics leads the industry in research, professional education, and quality manufacturing. But they're also brave enough to search for the next big thing to make an even greater impact on health. The result? An impressive list of patented formulas and ingredients, and a revolutionary product development process to help make natural approaches even safer and more effective. Whether you're a patient or a health care provider, be your best with Metagenics.
