Frequently Asked Questions
How do I find a health care professional near me that recommends Metagenics products?
You can find someone near you who is certified in FirstLine Therapy, a lifestyle therapy program.
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. For specifics, check out the Quality Difference section.
Who would benefit from UltraInflamX Medical Food?
People whose quality of life is affected by IBD (ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease) and associated chronic inflammation.
How does UltraInflamX Medical Food work?
This product provides targeted, research-based nutrients to modulate inflammatory processes associated with IBD-with an excellent predicted safety profile. It contains a combination of plant-based ingredients that are designed to work with your body (not against it) to inhibit triggers for inflammation without interfering with healthy functioning. An unhealthy diet (highly processed foods, low nutrients) and common food sensitivities may also influence GI health, inflammation, and related symptoms. This product is recommended for use with a modified elimination diet-a healthful balance that limits consumption of foods with increased allergen potential and reduces dietary chemical exposure.
How does UltraInflamX Medical Food compare to other products or approaches?
A frequent target pathway to influence the inflammatory response in IBD management is the immune system. This product contains ingredients that uniquely and gently address underlying activities associated with chronic inflammation-without immune suppression and with an excellent predicted safety profile. The rice protein base has a lower allergenic potential than many common protein sources, which (along with careful formulation and manufacturing) helps make this product suitable for use with an eating plan to reduce potential GI stressors and inflammatory triggers. This product contains only natural ingredients for a safer long-term approach, and has been clinically reviewed at the FMRC.
How long is UltraInflamX Medical Food typically recommended?
A typical introductory program is 25 days (with a modified elimination diet) to evaluate progress. Some people may report positive changes in just a few weeks, but individual results may vary. This product may also be recommended for long-term support. For best results, follow your health care professional's guidelines.
Why is UltraInflamX Medical Food safe?
Medical foods must contain ingredients that are generally regarded as safe (GRAS) or FDA approved, and Metagenics continually evaluates formula ingredients in concert with current nutritional research for optimal safety and effectiveness. Plus, Metagenics' manufacturing facility has 3 certifications for good manufacturing practices to ensure the highest quality. (This product is suitable for those who may be sensitive to lactose or soy. See online catalog for complete allergen information.)
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
Their 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. Their 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 their TLC program, they asked health care providers to tell us 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 their 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, they had a big idea: the right nutrition could help people realize their best health possible by positively influencing what makes them unique-their genes. They 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 their 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 us to make people feel better isn't something they take lightly. It's the reason they lead 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.
