Metagenics UltraMeal® Medical Food
Nutritional Support for the Management of Conditions Associated with Metabolic Syndrome
UltraMeal® is a medical food formulated to nutritionally support the management of conditions associated with metabolic syndrome, such as central obesity, insulin resistance, and altered body composition. UltraMeal has been demonstrated to have a low glycemic index (referenced against glucose) and, along with a healthy dietary program and regular exercise, is designed to support a healthy body composition by targeting fat loss and helping to maintain lean muscle. Each serving of UltraMeal provides:
- 15 grams of non-genetically engineered, identity-preserved soy protein.
- 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), a body-ready, nature-identical folate, to promote healthy homocysteine levels for cardiovascular health.
- Low-glycemic-index meal option to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
- Good source of fiber to support gastrointestinal health.
- 600 mg of dairy-free calcium (60% RDI). Calcium, along with regular exercise and a healthy diet, can play a significant role in reducing the rate of bone loss or bone thinning and protecting bone strength.

Q. How does UltraMeal® Medical Food compare to other products or approaches?
A. Lifestyle therapy, including healthy nutrition and exercise, is recommended as a first line of therapy for conditions associated with metabolic syndrome. Unlike some approaches, this unique medical food has a low glycemic index and is formulated to nutritionally manage metabolic syndrome by promoting the loss of fat while retaining lean muscle. And it was designed to complement lifestyle therapy recommendations to help you achieve greater success. It contains only natural ingredients for a safer approach, and has been clinically reviewed at the FMRC.
Q. How does UltraMeal® Medical Food work?
A. It offers a blend of natural, research-based ingredients to provide targeted nutrition for a safer approach to support blood sugar and insulin metabolism. It also provides nutrients to support cardiovascular and bone health. And it's formulated for use with lifestyle recommendations (low-glycemic-load diet, exercise) to help reduce risk to heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Q. How long is UltraMeal® Medical Food typically recommended?
A. A typical introductory program is designed for 12 weeks of use to evaluate progress. But many people report changes such as increased energy and reduced waist size in just a few weeks. Individuals monitoring blood sugar at home may also notice improvements soon after starting the program. This product may also be recommended for long-term support. Follow your health care provider's recommendations for best results.
Q. Who would benefit from UltraMeal® Medical Food?
A. People with conditions related to metabolic syndrome, such as elevated waist circumference (central obesity), a higher fat-to-lean body mass ratio (altered body composition), and elevated blood sugar or insulin levels (insulin resistance).
Q. Why is UltraMeal® Medical Food safe?
A. Medical foods must contain ingredients generally regarded as safe (GRAS) or be 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.
