Metagenics UltraInflamX® Plus 360 Medical Food 25.7 (728 g)
UltraInflamX® Plus 360 is a medical food formulated to provide specialized nutritional support, including reduced iso-alpha acids (RIAA, from hops), L-glutamine, and easily digestible rice protein, for patients experiencing inflammation and pain associated with inflammatory bowel disease. This advanced formula features selective kinase response modulators (SKRMs) in the form of RIAA, which has been shown to beneficially influence the function of enzymes involved in inflammatory processes. Provided in a low-allergenic-potential rice protein base, this formula is also enhanced with L-glutamine to support intestinal mucosal cells and a special phytonutrient blend of ginger, rosemary, and tumeric. Ginger and rosemary help to support healthy eicosanoid and cytokine metabolism, while tumeric extract has been shown in research to inhibit the activities of a wide variety of compounds implicated in pain and inflammation.
- RIAA has demonstrated potent antioxidant activity and research suggests that it may help improve overall redox status through influencing inflammation-signaling molecules such as NF-IoB, COX-2, and PGE2.
- Supports Phase II detoxification, gastrointestinal mucosa integrity, and reduction of damaging free radical generation.
- Freatures a unique blend of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, bioflavonoids, and the phytonutrients rutin, curcuminoids, and quercetin to nutritionally support a balanced inflammatory response.
- Includes ginger and rosemary, which may help support healthy eicosanoid and cytokine metabolism.
- Provides turmeric extract, which has been shown in research to inhibit the activities of a wide variety of enzymes, cytokines, eicosanoids, and reactive species implicated in pain and inflammation.
- Supplies a low-allergenic potential protein base in the form of rice protein concentrate.

Q. How does UltraInflamX® Plus 360º Medical Food compare to other products or approaches?
A. A frequent target pathway to influence the inflammatory response in IBD management is the immune system. This product contains ingredients that uniquely and gently address underlying activities associated with chronic inflammatory pain--without immune suppression and with an excellent predicted safety profile. The rice protein base has a lower allergenic potential than many common protein sources, which (along with careful formulation and manufacturing) helps make this product suitable for use with an eating plan to reduce potential GI stressors and inflammatory triggers. This product contains only natural ingredients for a safer long-term approach, and has been clinically reviewed at the FMRC.
Q. How does UltraInflamX® Plus 360º Medical Food work?
A. This product provides targeted, research-based nutrients to modulate inflammatory and pain processes associated with IBD--with an excellent predicted safety profile. It contains a combination of plant-based ingredients that are designed to work with your body (not against it) to inhibit triggers for inflammation and pain without interfering with health functioning. An unhealthy diet (highly processed foods, low nutrients) and common food sensitivities may also influence gastrointestinal health, inflammation, and related symptoms. This product is recommended for use with a modified elimination diet--a healthful balance that limits consumption of foods with increased allergen potential and reduces dietary chemical exposure.
Q. How long is UltraInflamX® Plus 360º Medical Food typically recommended?
A. A typical introductory program is 25 days (with a modified elimination diet) to evaluate progress. Some people may report positive changes in just a few weeks, but individual results may vary. 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 UltraInflamX® Plus 360º Medical Food?
A. People whose quality of life is affected by IBD (ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease) and associated chronic inflammation and pain. This formula may offer an advantage for extraintestinal pain and inflammation.
Q. Why is UltraInflamX® Plus 360º 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. Key active ingredients in this formula were developed through the ExpresSyn Process(r) that sets a new standard in clinical certainty for natural products via demonstrated efficacy, bioavailability, and a high level of predicted safety. (This product is not recommended for those taking anti-coagulant medications. UltraInflamX(r) Medical Food may be an excellent alternative. This product is suitable for those who may be sensitive to lactose or soy. See online catalog for complete allergen information.)
