Formulation Breakdown

Carefully Formulated, Premium Ingredients - Feel the Difference.

Not all elemental diet products are created equal. The premium ingredients used in ElementGold have been carefully selected to minimise any effect on sensitive digestive systems and to maximise your return to digestive health. Taste is also an important part of any food and ElementGold is a particularly tasty elemental shake.

The forms and levels of vitamins and minerals in the formulation is compliant as a Food for Special Medical Purposes under the Australia/New Zealand Food Standards Code.

ElementGold Protein

Protein is vitally important, not only for gaining weight, but for many different functions within the body. Aside from water, protein makes up the greatest portion of our body weight. Muscles, ligaments, tendons, organs, glands, nails, hair, enzymes, hormones and genes are all made of protein.

ElementGold has one of the highest protein contents of all commercially available elemental diets. The amount of protein per serving contained in ElementGold (34 grams) approaches the maximum that can be absorbed by the body at one time (30-50g). The protein used in ElementGold is a premium form extracted using Ion-exchange. This is a gentle process that ensures the most nutritive and pure whey protein isolate.

Whey Isolate Protein

The whey protein used in ElementGold is the highest quality hydrolyzed whey protein isolate derived from an ion-exchange method.

This ensures that proteins are not denatured (by heat or chemicals) but that the di-sulphide bonds remain intact, allowing the protein to be easily absorbed and utilised by the body as well as enhancing the availability of free-form amino acids. Ion-exchange whey protein also creates sustained increases in the amino acid glutathione - a key antioxidant.

Other elemental diets may use a cheaper extraction process, usually involving heat treatment, which risks denaturing the proteins. Cheaper diets also often contain casein (which some people are allergic to). The whey extraction process used in ElementGold is the most effective method available to remove casein and lactose.

The premium whey protein isolate in ElementGold includes the following beneficial proteins:

Biological Value (BV) is a measure of the proportion of protein that can be absorbed and utilised by the body, from a particular food source. For example, an egg, long considered by scientists to be an ideal source of easily digested protein, has a Biological Value of 100. Not only does ElementGold contain one of the highest protein levels in grams, but with a Biological Value of 159, the protein contained in ElementGold is one of the highest available in a protein supplement.

The amino acids (all in the L-form as found naturally in plants and animals) contained within the whey protein isolate are as follows:

In addition to these amino acids found in the whey protein, ElementGold has an additional 10 free-form amino acids added as part of a proprietary blend in order to further enhance mucosal healing and a return to good health. These free-form amino acids are detailed in the Amino Acids section.
