    Metagenics Bariatrx Essentials Bariatric Meal Banana Supreme Flavor - 36 oz. (2 lb, 4 oz) (1008 g)

    Metagenics Bariatrx Essentials Bariatric Meal is a medical food formulated to provide specialized nutrition for bariatric patients pre- and post-operation by supplying a desirable balance of high quality protein, carbohydrates and fat along with key nutrients crucial to overall nutritional status and tissue healing after bariatric surgery. Metagenics Bariatrx Essentials Bariatric Meal Essentials is a great-tasting, low-calorie medical food in powdered beverage form. Metagenics Bariatrx Essentials Bariatric high protein liquid meal option also provides targeted nutrients to support the management of the specific health concerns of post-bariatric patients, such as energy levels, hair and nail growth, immune health, and tissue repair.

    As bariatric patients know, proper bariatric nutrition is a vital part of losing weight and maintaining health. A healthy bariatric eating plan should include adequate intake of protein, vitamins, and minerals to achieve the desired weight loss and overall health goals.

    Scientifically Formulated:

    • May reduce the incidence of adverse consequences of bariatric procedures such as dumping syndrome
    • Formulated with a blend of superior soy and whey proteins to promote the growth of lean muscle mass while supporting the loss of unhealthy fat
    • Contains a targeted blend of macro- and micronutrients designed to meet the specific needs of the bariatric patient:
    • Supports hair and nail growth
    • Helps to reduce fatigue and weakness
    • Supports immune system function
    • Provides nutritional building blocks for tissue health and repair

    Bariatric Advantages:

    • Provides calcium, which along with regular exercise and a healthy diet, can play a significant role in reducing the rate of bone loss or bone thinning and in protecting bone strength
    • Features body-ready folates for cardiovascular health
    • Provides fiber for cardiovascular and gastrointestinal health
    • Contains heart-healthy soy protein:
    • Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 25 grams of soy protein a day may reduce the risk of heart disease
    • Soy protein has also been shown to have cholesterol-lowering effects

    Delicious and Convenient:

    • A satisfying, low-residue meal option of only 85 calories
    • Mixes with water or other recommended beverages to make a quick and tasty beverage
    • Mix with fruit, yogurt, or ice to make a smoothie

    What makes Metagenics different from most nutritional supplement companies?
    A lot of things make us stand above other companies-a focus on patient health, quality manufacturing, ingredient testing, safety reviews, clinical testing, scientific research, unique formulas, and more.

    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.

    Why Metagenics?
    Patient Health-It's Their Greatest Concern
    They've built a reputation on nutraceuticals and medical foods that meet the high expectations of health care professionals worldwide. But what they care about most is serving the best interests of the patients who use their products and services with a goal of improving health and reversing chronic illness.

    The Industry Leader in Quality & Efficacy
    Metagenics doesn't compromise on safety, efficacy, or quality-to make sure that they deliver the best results possible. Time after time. Bottle after bottle. They carefully monitor all products to assure purity and safety, from formulation and ingredient selection all the way to the final product.

    Research & Innovation Ahead of the Curve
    Metagenics offers more than just products. Their strong focus on research keeps them on the leading edge of the current evolution in personalized medicine. Their in-house team of highly regarded clinicians and scientists is actively developing breakthroughs in nutrient modulation of gene expression to help them create even more effective health care solutions.

    Educational Programs with Renowned Experts
    Metagenics offers more educational support for health care professionals than anyone else in their field- keeping them in touch with the latest research and nutritional approaches to help manage today's most common illnesses. With our renowned in-house experts, including Dr. Jeffrey Bland and many other opinion leaders, they provide education through seminars, workshops, webinars, symposiums, and other venues.

    Discover the Difference
    See why more health care professionals and patients select Metagenics over many other professional brands. You'll be glad you did.

    Suggested Use

    BariatrX Essentials medical food may be mixed with chilled water, nonfat milk, electrolyte replacement beverages, reduced calorie beverages, or other liquids recommended by your healthcare practitioner. Fresh or frozen fruit, as well as ice or extract flavorings, may be added to customize the texture and taste. Prolonged blending may cause foaming. Volume of fluid may be adjusted to change consistency.

    1 month pre-op: Replace 1 meal with 3 level scoops into 12 oz of liquid once daily.
    0-3 months post-op: Mix 1 level scoop into 4 oz of liquid 6 times per day.
    3-6 months post-op: Mix 3 level scoops into 12 oz of liquid 2 times per day.
    6 months post-op: Mix 3 level scoops into 12 oz of liquid 1 time per day.

    Or as directed by your health care practitioner. Additional fluids throughout the day promote adequate hydration. Your health care practitioner may recommend additional nutritional products—including targeted vitamins, fiber, and protein—tailored to the needs and sensitive stomachs of bariatric patients. Regular exercise is an essential component of a healthy body composition program as well.

    Warnings

    Store in a cool, dry place. Keep out of reach of children. In case of persistent nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or other symptoms contact your physician. Such symptoms may be the result of bariatric surgery. Excess Vitamin A intake may be toxic and may increase the risk of birth defects. Pregnant women and women who may become pregnant should not exceed 5000 IU of preformed Vitamin A (retinyl palmitate) per day.
