Physicians’ Elemental Diet
Physicians’ Elemental Diet was created to meet the needs of patients as well as the unique requirements of integrative medicine specialists. The result is a hypoallergenic formula, containing no intact protein, corn or soy derived micronutrients or macronutrients with a flavor that is well-tolerated (and contains no artificial flavorings).
- Specifically formulated to contain free amino acids, partially hydrolyzed carbohydrate and medium chain triglycerides to aid in their absorption from the GI lumen.
- Designed to maintain nutritional sustenance as a sole source of nutrition for up to four weeks.
- Strictly hypoallergenic formula free from intact protein or polypeptides, corn, gluten, soy, and dairy.
- A elemental diet powder which is reconstituted in water, formulated with a well-tolerated flavor with patient adherence in mind.
