Hi all,

I would like to know if you've had any success with Metagenics UltraInflamX. This was recommended to me by a nurse friend who sees a naturopathic doctor and has histamine issues. I'm at my wit's end--down to meat and a handful of vegetables I can eat. Still reacting. I had not been taking Zyrtec for the past couple of weeks, so I added it back in, thinking maybe it was doing more than I thought.

Food Intolerances : Gluten, casein, soy, and avenin, (avenin is the prolamin in oats, which is equivalent to the gluten in wheat), beef, grapes, peanuts, cashews, almonds, (but nut butters seem OK except for peanuts), citric acid, chocolate, and agar.

Cynthia,

I don't know anything about it, and I can't find a listing of the actual ingredients on their website, but based on all the warnings they list about retinyl palmitate, I'm guessing that it may contain 5,000 IU of vitamin A in the form of retinyl palmitate. For all I know, it might be a good product, but I would proceed with caution. From my book:

Quote:
Recent research has shown that a metabolite of vitamin A, retinoic acid, together with interleukin-15 (IL-15) in the intestines of patients with celiac disease, may be responsible for generating the inflammation that results in celiac disease.7


Retinyl palmitate is found in some topically applied skin care products. After its absorption into the skin, retinyl palmitate is converted to retinol, and ultimately to retinoic acid. I suspect that it's safe to assume that the same thing happens if retinyl palmitate is ingested. IOW, retinyl palmitate is a source of retinoic acid. Here is reference "7":

You can find an ingredients list here:

It contains rice protein which I notice you are sensitive to.

I reacted severely to this. It has way too many ingredients for us.

Thanks Brandy! I suspected that already. My wife found it on a Chinese site which is specialized on products to help with IBD, UC and Crohns.
