Heal Your Gut with GI Meal Select

Heal Your Gut with GI Meal Select

I would like to report on the new product GI Meal Select from Moss Nutrition. With the increasing prevalence of gut disorders, we need more strategies to help patients get well quickly and effectively. GI Meal Select has been carefully formulated to address many aspects of gut healing in an affordable and effective product.

GI Meal Select is designed to provide optimal nutrient sustenance so it can act as a stand-alone meal replacement. It is easy to digest, pleasant tasting, and reasonably priced. One of the issues with many meal replacement products is the carbohydrate and fat content which can cause gut issues like gas and bloating so this product has almost completely eliminated both.

It also contains no protein powder such as whey and pea which most people with gut issues can no longer tolerate. Instead, it uses the Reginator amino acid blend to maintain muscle mass and promote tissue repair.

As of August 29th, 2017, we now have a study that looked at this diet and how effective it was for autoimmune disease.  The paper is entitled, “Efficacy of the Autoimmune Protocol Diet for Inflammatory Bowel Disease.”  Dr. Konijeti is the lead author and it was published in the journal Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
