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 detoxification enzyme.
- - 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?
People 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?
This 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 healthor 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?
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. 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 nutrientsincluding quality rice proteinto 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?
In 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?
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.
