GI Sustain™ is a medical food formulated to provide specialized nutritional support, including amino acids and prebiotic fiber, combined with readily digestible, low-allergenic-potential macronutrients for patients with leaky gut syndrome. Featuring L-glutamine and isomalto-oligosaccharides (IMO), this formula supports intestinal mucosal integrity and promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria to address dysbiosis associated with leaky gut syndrome.

  • Supports microbial balance.
  • Nourishes the cells of the colonic mucosa.
  • Features low-allergy-potential rice protein concentrate supplemented with L-lysine HCl and L-threonine for an improved protein source.
  • Provides rice syrup solids as a natural energy source.
  • Provides a readily absorbed and metabolized lipid source.
  • Provides the prebiotic IMO to selectively nourish beneficial bacteria, including lactobacillus and bifidobacteria.
  • IMO is a gentle fiber that is naturally sweet but has a low-glycemic index.
  • Formulated with nutrients such as zinc gluconate and L-glutamine to nutritionally support gastrointestinal mucosa integrity.

Usage of Metagenics GI Sustain™:
Blend, shake, or briskly stir about 2 level scoops (60 grams) of GI Sustain into 8 ounces of chilled water or juice twice daily or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. For highly sensitive individuals, consider reducing consumption to 1/2 to 1 scoop with 4 to 5 ounces of chilled water or juice twice daily during the first 3 to 4 days before starting a full daily dose. This product is Gluten Free.

Q. How does GI Sustain™ Medical Food compare to other products or approaches?
A. Some approaches provide temporary symptom relief that may affect healthy digestion with long-term use. This product is formulated to nutritionally manage leaky gut syndrome by targeting the potential underlying causes with scientifically demonstrated nutrients that may be difficult to obtain through normal dietary means. This formula contains only natural ingredients for a safer approach, and has been clinically reviewed at the FMRC.

Q. How does GI Sustain™ Medical Food work?
A. It's enhanced with specific nutrients—including rice protein developed through a patented manufacturing process—and targeted ingredients to nutritionally manage gastrointestinal health, including support for intestinal lining and immune function (through a healthy bacterial balance). Rice protein has a lower allergenic potential than many common animal or vegetable protein sources, which (along with careful formulation and manufacturing) helps make this product suitable for dietary elimination programs. This product is formulated for use with modified elimination diet (to reduce dietary chemicals and common foods with allergenic potential) to offer a higher level of support for better results.

Q. How long is GI Sustain™ 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 GI Sustain™ Medical Food?
A. People with leaky gut syndrome , a condition that can lead to increased permeability of the gastrointestinal (GI) lining. This creates an opportunity for environmental toxins , undigested food, microbes, and waste to leak through the body's protective GI immune system.

Q. Why is GI Sustain™ 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. (This product is suitable for those who may be sensitive to lactose or soy.)
