Benefits of UltraClear RENEW Rice Protein Powder include:
- - Helps to address altered pain signaling and neuromuscular function associated with fibromyalgia.
- - Features a proprietary spent hops powder and extracts of prune, pomegranate, and watercress.
- - Preliminary laboratory research suggests that spent hops may
induce the expression of metallothionein, an antioxidant protein
associated with the body's detoxification of some heavy metals.
- - Preliminary laboratory work suggests that spent hops and prune
extract may promote the activity of quinone reductase, a Phase II
- - Preliminary laboratory research suggests that pomegranate extract
may increase the activity of glutathione-S-transferase (GST), an
important Phase II detoxification enzyme.
- - Provides glycine to support Phase II glycine conjugation, along with sulfate and L-cysteine to support Phase II sulfation.
- - Supplies green tea catechins and mixed carotenoids to protect
against reactive species generated during hepatic detoxification.
- - Provides zinc, which some research suggests may help reduce
oxidative stress associated with the metabolism and detoxification of
heavy metals by beneficially influencing the activity and genetic
expression of metallothionein.
- - In preliminary research†, UltraClear RENEW and a modified
elimination diet was associated with a decrease in FibroQuest total
score (pain and stiffness score) and an increase in excretion of
certain heavy metals (such as mercury).
- - Comes with a Quick-Start Guide or a more comprehensive Patient Guide for complete program guidelines.
UltraClear RENEW, provided as a powdered beverage mix, is a
medical food formulated to provide specialized nutritional support for
patients with fibromyalgia and is designed for those who may benefit
from additional nutritional support for hepatic detoxification function.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Who would benefit from UltraClear RENEW™ Medical Food?
whose quality of life is affected by recurring, non-specific muscle
pain and stiffness associated with fibromyalgia, a condition
characterized by altered pain signaling and neuromuscular function. This
formula was designed for individuals who may benefit from additional
support for detoxification function, including heavy metabolism, which
may be influencing symptoms.
How does UltraClear RENEW™ Medical Food work?
medical food provides nutrients that help target underlying issues
associated with fibromyalgia, such as altered pain signaling and
neuromuscular function. Science-based metabolic detoxification programs
are often recommended as a first approach to help clean out the
environmental "junk" that may be affecting your health—or causing you
pain. Some evidence suggests that certain heavy metals, such as the
mercury in dental amalgam, may increase pain and fatigue in those who
are already chemically sensitive. UltraClear RENEW is formulated to help
relieve pain and stiffness, and also provides research-based nutrients
to support important detoxification activities, such as heavy metal
metabolism. 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 dietary elimination
programs. This product is recommended for use with a modified
elimination diet that reduces dietary chemical exposure.
How does UltraClear RENEW™ Medical Food compare to other products or approaches?
some approaches, this medical food program provides a science-based
protocol to help address underlying factors that may increase symptoms
in chemically sensitive individuals. It's the only medical food that
specifically targets pain signaling and neuromuscular function in
patients with fibromyalgia in a manner that does not carry a risk of
serious adverse events associated with common target pathways to relieve
pain. This product contains only natural ingredients for a safer
approach with a scientifically designed blend of targeted
nutrients—including quality rice protein—to support energy metabolism
and balanced activities in both phases of the body's detoxification
process, particularly the second phase.
How long is UltraClear RENEW™ Medical Food typically recommended?
a 4-week preliminary study,** the UltraClear RENEW program demonstrated
significantly decreased pain and stiffness, improved quality of life,
and increased mercury excretion. This product may also be recommended
for long-term support. For best results, follow your health care
professional's guidelines. (** With UltraClear RENEW and a modified
elimination diet in a small number of fibromyalgia patients with dental
amalgams conducted at the FMRC, after a 4-week control phase with
UltraClear MACRO® and the Standard American Diet with seafood excluded.)
Why is UltraClear RENEW™ Medical Food safe?
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. (This product is not recommended for those taking
anti-coagulant medications. This product is suitable for those who may
be sensitive to lactose or soy. See online catalog for complete allergen
ADVACLEAR Liver Support Capsules (42)
Provides unique support for balanced activity of the body's
detoxification processes. Promotes feelings of renewed vitality, energy,
and well-being by supporting bifunctional detoxification. Bifunctional
support enhances the activities of several hepatic detoxification
enzymes while promoting balanced activity of the Phase I and Phase II
detoxification pathways. Protects against free radicals generated during
Phase I detoxification by featuring a variety of nutrients with potent
antioxidant properties. When used with a macronutrient formula, provides
a versatile, modular approach to a balanced detoxification.
