Colitis
"I'm 38 and suffer from ulcerative colitis and celiac disease. The latter is a chronic intolerance to gluten which is found in more foods than you can imagine. The combination of these two conditions have left me weakened and undernourished with regular stomach pain, often chronic. Absorb Plus came to my attention at a difficult time recently and helped me overcome it. I was not able to tolerate solid food well so getting my nutrients in a drink was great. I was amazed how easily my stomach digested Absorb Plus and the pleasant full feeling it gave me. I've not had that in a supplement before. Luckily I was able to eat some solid food in conjunction so I was not fully reliant on a liquid diet.
The most pleasing aspect of combining Absorb Plus (blended with flax seed oil and a banana) and sticking to a gluten free diet is that I've gained 14lbs in weight - a significant achievement for someone who has been underweight most of his life (due to my undiagnosed celiac condition). My only problem: Absorb Plus is not cheap. I've had to economise (ie. not use it as much as I otherwise would) to make it last. At least now it's available locally from Finlandia. That's where I bought my most recent batch."
