"I have been using Absorb Plus for maintaining weight more than anything. I'm also keeping a few jugs around for flare-ups. Also, I am a lucky Crohn's patient. I manage my Crohn's through managing my diet and lifestyle. I have not taken any medication for 5 years. Any 'flare-ups' (though rare) are managed by stopping solid food and drinking shakes. Absorb Plus did come in handy on my trip to the Ukraine though. The food over there was not great (lots of animal fatty foods), thus I drank Absorb Plus to keep the calories up and damaging Omega 6 fats down."
