Info on Gastro-Intestinal Seminar I Attended

These days between people with celiac disease, those affected by antibiotic overuse and those affected by GMO products, artificial sweeteners,  high fructose corn syrup, and pesticides, a lot of patients have compromised gut function with digestive disorders including malabsorption.

Last week I attended a mini-seminar by Metagenics about the research on their newest product UltraGI Replenish.

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 challenged by compromised gut function with digestive disorders including malabsorption.
Key Formula Components & Benefits
• Proprietary prebiotic blend, including PreBiome 2’-FL™ to nourish beneficial microorganisms and isomalto-oligosaccharides (IMOs), to promote intestinal mucosal health and nourish beneficial microorganisms
• Advanced, clinically tested Sustamine® L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine dipeptide designed for enhanced absorption to support intestinal health
• 15 g of OptiProtein™ per serving—12 g of pea/rice protein blend and 3 g of added essential amino acids to address potential increased needs due to digestive issues and malabsorption
• 20+ essential nutrients for targeted GI support, including:
° Vitamin B12 and folate forms designed to address potential malabsorption issues
° 100% RDI of vitamin D3, the most absorbable form
of vitamin D available
° Antioxidant nutrients (e.g., vitamins C and E) to protect against oxidative stress
° 80% RDI of zinc to support GI lining integrity
• 17 g total carbohydrates, including 7 g of fiber and 4 g of sugars

Of course this product is followed up with administration of Ultra Flora probiotics.

Probiotics can vary significantly in potency, efficacy, and safety, which can result in inconsistent health benefits. Many products fall short due to various reasons, including not identifying the probiotic strain that is linked to specific health benefits. Additionally, some products have also been found to contain specific contaminants (gluten, mold, yeast, and potentially harmful bacteria), which can cause negative reactions and deleterious health effects in susceptible individuals.

Through extensive and rigorous quality controltesting,  UltraFlora guarantees the highest quality of purity (free of contaminants), potency, and scientifically formulated probiotic formulas that contain genetically identified strains with established health benefits for clinically reliable outcomes .

Ensuring Purity, Reliability, and Quality
Certificate of Analysis required from all suppliers
Testing for contaminants, purity, and genetic strain ID upon receipt of raw materials
Testing for total viable count using scientifically validated methodology
Strains have been shown to resist acid, bile and pancreatin digestion allowing survival through the digestive tract for colonization
To help maintain probiotic viability through expiration, water exposure is limited:
Testing for low water activity during manufacture
Controlled humidity and temperature during production, packaging & storage to limit exposure to water in air
Testing for stability under storage conditions, including refrigeration, ambient, and high heat temperatures
Guaranteed potency/CFUs (Colony Forming Units) through date of expiration:
Manufactured, stored, and transported under refrigeration to ensure live and healthy probiotics

Osteoporosis -New Concern for HIV Patients

An important article that shows that M.D.’s need to start learning about nutrition.
The doctor’s recommendations in this article tells patients to take calcuim carbonate, eat dairy & sardines for Ca sources and to  take bisphosphonates for osteoporosis.
Unfortunately the recommendation of calcium carbonate is a joke since you need acid in your stomach and calcium carbonate acts as an antacid (what Tums is made from) so you do not absorb any Ca from this source
 
The article also does not mention that you also need Mg for yr. bones as well as other trace minerals.
 
Also fails to mention that some of the best sources of calcium is green leafy veggies, almonds, seaweed and beans; esp important if you are lactose intolerant and can’t use dairy products
 
And as for taking bisphosphonates, even the FDA is updating the public regarding information previously communicated describing the risk of atypical fractures of the thigh, known as subtrochanteric and diaphyseal femur fractures, in patients who take bisphosphonates for osteoporosis. http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/DrugSafety/ucm229009.htm
