Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How does UltraClear PLUS® Medical Food compare to other products or approaches?
A. Unlike some approaches, this medical food program provides a science-based protocol to help address underlying factors that may increase symptoms in chemically sensitive individuals. The body’s natural detoxification process demands energy, so it relies on macronutrients (protein, carbs, fats) and other micronutrients that may be missing in some products or dietary recommendations. This formula contains a scientifically designed blend of targeted nutrients–including quality rice protein, carbohydrates, and fats–to support energy metabolism and complex activities in both phases of the body’s detoxification process. UltraClear PLUS differs from UltraClear(r) Medical Food in that it provides additional support for second phase activities that prepare dietary and other toxins for elimination. This formula contains only natural ingredients for a safer approach, and has been clinically reviewed at the FMRC.
Q. How does UltraClear PLUS® Medical Food work?
A. This product provides nutrients that support energetic and liver detoxification function. Science-based metabolic detoxification programs are often recommended as a first approach to help relieve complaints such as fatigue, cloudy thinking, and mood changes. Think of it as cleaning out the environmental “junk” that may be affecting your health. UltraClear Plus provides research-based nutritional support for liver function, which may be beneficial during times of increased toxin exposure. It’s enhanced with specific nutrients–including rice protein developed through a patented manufacturing process–and antioxidants that support energy metabolism and detoxification function, particularly in the second phase. Rice protein has a lower allergenic potential than many common animal or vegetable protein sources, which (along with careful formulation and manufacturing) helps make this product suitable for dietary elimination programs. This product is recommended for use with a modified elimination diet that reduces dietary chemical exposure.
Q. How long is UltraClear PLUS® Medical Food typically recommended?
A. A typical introductory program is 28 days (including a modified elimination diet) to evaluate progress, though a 10-day regimen or other protocol may be recommended. Some people report positive changes in just a few weeks, but results may vary. In some individuals, eliminating common dietary chemicals may also create some short-term symptoms, such as caffeine withdrawal, that are not associated with product use. This product may also be recommended for long-term support. For best results, follow your health care professional’s guidelines.
Q. Who would benefit from UltraClear PLUS® Medical Food?
A. People whose quality of life is affected by low energy or lingering tiredness associated with chronic fatigue syndrome–and have altered energetic or liver detoxification function (clearance of dietary and other chemicals) due to genetic predisposition, a history of chronic nutrient insufficiency, and/or “environmental overload” that that can lead to a buildup of stored toxins. UltraClear PLUS was designed for chronic fatigue syndrome patient who may benefit from added nutritional support for the second phase of the body’s natural detoxification process.
Q. Why is UltraClear PLUS® Medical Food safe?
A. 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.
