    The First Ever Low Carb Elemental Diet

    The elemental diet is a unique pre-digested, hypoallergenic formula that helps heal the gut. Research shows that an elemental diet can lower inflammation in the gut and joints and starve overgrowth of bacteria (decreasing SIBO). 

    Most elemental diets contain around 60 grams of carbs per serving.  Our Low Carb Elemental Heal formula contains added healthy fats and only 20 grams of carbs per serving. 

    Why Dr. Ruscio Recommends it

    • Elemental diets are one of the most effective therapies I’ve used in the clinic.
    • Numerous trials support this observation.
    • Elemental diets tend to be high in carbohydrates, so I developed this formula for those who follow a low-carb diet.
    • If you have already improved your diet and used probiotics but still have symptoms, an elemental diet should be considered.
    • Elemental diets are so effective because they act through multiple mechanisms:
      • starving bacterial and fungal overgrowths
      • reducing exposure to dietary irritants
      • providing a chance for your intestinal tract to rest and repair

    What the Research Shows

    • After two weeks on an elemental diet, 80% of subjects saw their SIBO breath test normalize, and 65% experienced an improvement in their IBS symptoms. [1]
    • Elemental diets have been shown to be an effective treatment for inflammatory bowel disease in numerous clinical trials, decreasing inflammation, reducing autoimmunity, and preventing relapses. [2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12]

    • A clinical trial has shown that an elemental diet was as effective as the anti-inflammatory steroid drug prednisone for rheumatoid arthritis. [13]

    Stubborn Imbalances

    • Potentially.

    Will the carbs in Elemental Heal feed fungus or candida?

    • There’s no research to answer this question.
    • My opinion, no.  
    • Why? Because it is absorbed in the first few feet of intestines.  So it should starve fungus just like it does bacteria.

    • Reduced symptoms, less relapse, improved growth…

    Can Elemental Heal be used by highly active people?

    Can Elemental Heal be used all day?

    • “I prefer to blend up all of my Elemental Heal shakes at the beginning of the day, but on the bottle it says to consume within 4 hours. Why is that? What happens after 4 hours?”
    • As long as it’s kept cold, that should be fine.
    • Refrigerate to prevent spoilage
