    Valuable supplement for digestive health

    I first became interested in Metagenics products through a wellness provider who recommended UltraInflammX. It turned out that product was too strong for me. I chose to try the GI Sustain instead and have found it to be a GREAT tonic for digestive health. I started seeing a different health care provider, who specializes in functional medicine, and she told me I should definitely stay on GI Sustain. I can't recommend it enough for those with digestive issues. I mix it with rice milk and it is delicious. Actually quite sweet which is a nice treat for me since I don't normally allow myself sweets. The only drawback is it's price, but I can usually get a discount on it somewhere. I bought 4 when PureFormulas recently had a 20% off Metagenics sale. I always keep GI Sustain in stock!


    Pros

      Great for digestive health and great flavor.

    Cons

      Price.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Working well so far

    Taste is good, very easy to drink. I mix it with 8 ounces of ice cold water. I've been using GI Sustain by Metagenics for just a few days, so it is difficult to tell how it works, as it is a product that helps heal over time. I decided to write this review however, as the taste of some of these powders makes them very hard to take down, Gi Sustain however is very easy to drink.


    Pros

      Tastes good, mixes easily, quality ingredients from a well regarded company.

    Cons

      Cost is on the high side; When used as directed, this container last for 1 week, requiring 4 containers per month.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Fully absorbable and gluten free!

    I have celiac disease and other GI problems and I'm woefully underweight. GI Sustain by Metagenics is the only supplement that is helping me to finally absorb enough nutrients to gain a few pounds. My MD looked at the ingredients and told me that if I'm taking this, I don't even need to take a multivitamin! Amazing product.


    Pros

      Tastes good, even in water. Very gentle and well tolerated. Gluten-free protein and tons of nutrients.

    Cons

      Nothing!!

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    GI Sustain works!

    I first received GI Sustain by Metagenics from my doctor's office. When I was running out I found the product @ pure formulas website and was very pleased. There was no shipping charge which was a wonderful surprise to me. Thank you.


    Pros

      Easy to digest.

    Cons

      A bit grainy or gritty, but it's rice based.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Great for low blood sugar!

    A nutritionist put me on GI Sustain by Metagenics many years ago and my integrative MDs have told me to stay on it. It really helps balance my blood sugar so that I do not have crashes. I just wish it were not so expensive. I can't take it every day and I should.


    Pros

      It helps to balance blood sugar in an allergy free way.

    Cons

      The price of GI Sustain has got out of control!!! I should be taking it twice a day and now, I can only take it when I know I have a lot of physical work to do. I just can't afford it any more.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Everyday must have.

    Ive been using GI Sustain for at least two years. My naturalpathic MD recommended GI Sustain after we established that I have a leaky gut. I have so much more energy now that my vitamins are actually getting absorbed into my body. I love it and recommend it to anyone with wheat gluten dairy and soy sensitivities.


    Pros

      Love it.

    Cons

      Metagenics really needs to turn the scoop around so it isn;t so hard to get out without spilling the precious powder.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
