What is Absorb Element+?

How many calories are there per serving?
There are 370 calories per serving which can be increased by adding essential fatty acids such as those contained in Udo’s Ultimate Oil Blend.
What are the key benefits of Absorb Element+?
Absorb Element+ has a tonne of health benefits, but the key ones are:
- Easy to digest and gentle on your stomach and digestive system
- Reduces burden on the immune system and inflammatory load
- Helps maintain or gain lean muscle mass (not fat)
- Daily nutritional support
- Delicious taste - and all natural!
- Gives you more energy and helps you to sleep better
Who is Absorb Element+ for?
Absorb Element+ may be used exclusively as part of an elemental diet (reduced faecal matter), or along with other foods to provide a low residue diet, or to provide high-quality nutrients in liquid form.
Absorb Element+ has been carefully formulated to meet the unique needs of people who have problems chewing, swallowing, digesting or absorbing their food.
There is currently NO product on the market that matches Absorb Element+ in nutritional value or the extremely high quality of its ingredients.
What is in Absorb Element+?
Absorb Element+ provides nutrients, supplements, protein (whey protein isolate for the non-vegan flavours, organic sprouted brown rice protein isolate for the vegan flavours) and carbohydrates (tapioca maltodextrin) in the most desirable forms and proportions, and in ratios that allow for optimum use and absorption.
The liquid diet protein shake includes an extensive array of free-form amino acids (over 1000 mg L-Glutamine per serving!), with a superior vitamin and mineral profile (including trace minerals).
There is a custom-blend of 10 additional targeted amino acids, specially selected for gut repair, for example:
- Over 1000 mg of L-Glutamine per serving to rebuild mucosal cell lining in intestines
- L-Serine for production of immunoglobulins and antibodies
- L-Threonine to aid the formation of collagen and elastin
- L-Cysteine to aid wound healing
- L-Tyrosine to aid the function of pituitary, adrenal and thyroid glands
- L-Aspartic Acid to protect the liver
- L-Proline to heal cartilage, strengthen joints, tendons and heart muscle
Our vitamin and mineral panel:
- A full panel of trace minerals – trace mineral deficiency is common in chronic illness.
- Also contains 10 mcg Vitamin K2 (as MK-7; first identified by Dr Weston A. Price as "Activator X") and 100 mcg of potassium citrate per serving.
- Contains full electrolyte panel.
Absorb Element+ has been formulated to allow people to add their own amount of good fat – since everyone's fat tolerance level varies.
We suggest adding 1 tbsp. organic flax or Udo's Choice oil (which brings total calorie count to approximately 480 calories per shake).
How often should I consume Absorb Element+?
Absorb Element+ tastes so good, you can consume it up to 12 times a day if necessary.
Pour 1 cup (237 ml) of water into a blender or shaker bottle (increase water if desired). Then add 1 tsp - 1 tbsp cold-pressed Linseed, Udo’s or MCT Oil (adjust according to tolerance; the more, the better).
Then add one serving size of Absorb Element+ (4 level scoops) and shake or blend on a low speed for 10 seconds.
Then pour over ice (if you wish) and drink slowly for maximum nutrient absorption. If tolerated, you can add milk instead of water or add fruit.
It’s important that you do use not use hot liquids when making up your Absorb Element+ drink.
Who created Absorb Element+?
The Absorb Element+ formula was developed by colon and bowel disorder expert Jini Patel Thompson to provide maximum nutrition to help build and strengthen your immune system and allow you to maintain or gain solid weight (muscle, not fat).

What flavours does Absorb Element+ come in?
Absorb Element+ comes in five delicious flavours.
Can I try a sample flavour before I buy a whole tub?
We strongly advise you purchase a few sample sizes of Absorb Element+, or just 1 tub, before buying the volume needed to do a full elemental diet.
This will allow you to check for allergies or intolerance to any of the ingredients.
Signs of intolerance or food allergy include brain fog, grogginess, sore joints, headaches, nausea, skin rash, blurred vision, asthma, chest pains, oedema, etc.
How many servings are in one tub?
There are approximately 10 servings per jar - sometimes a little bit more, sometimes a little bit less as Absorb Element+ is packed by weight and there can be some settling during shipping and storage.
Start with half a serving and build up gradually, allowing your body time to adjust to this unique (elemental) food source.
