ElementAll Biological Diet is an elemental diet formula that provides comprehensive, hypoallergenic, easily digestible stand- alone nutrition for individuals with impaired digestive function. The efficacy of elemental diets has partly been attributed to the elimination of allergens (while providing nutrients requiring minimal digestion). This promotes gastrointestinal mucosal health and normalization of intestinal permeability.1
Among those with newly diagnosed Crohn’s disease, complete elemental nutrition induces remission in over 80% of patients, while a “half elemental diet” significantly lowered relapse rates when followed longer term.2-4
Elemental diets target gut microbiota as well as inflammation; in addition to suppressing NF-κB levels (a critical regulator of inflammation),5 they significantly lower the population of Bacteroides fragilis, a species linked to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) as well as colorectal cancer.6,7 Among individuals with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and abnormal lactulose breath tests (indicative of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, [SIBO]), 85% had normalized breath values, as well as improved symptoms after following an elemental diet.8 Elemental diets have also led to similar improvement when compared to corticosteroid therapy among rheumatoid arthritis participants, and both immunopathologic and clinical improvement among participants with refractory celiac disease.9,10
ElementalAll Biological Diet provides all the essential micro and macronutrients optimized for easy assimilation and is designed to be the sole source of nutrition for individuals with impaired digestive function.
