Guide for Use - UltraClear Sustain™
What is UltraClear Sustain™?
UltraClear Sustain™ is a nutritional food supplement designed to support healthy gastrointestinal function by providing nutrients required by the cells that line the digestive tract. These cells play a combined role of absorbing nutrients into the body and providing a barrier to keep out non-nutrient or undesirable molecules. When dysfunctional, the cells that line the digestive tract may not play either role effectively. UltraClear Sustain™ provides nutrients which support healthy digestive tract function. By using UltraClear Sustain™ as detailed in this easy-to-use guide you may notice improvements in your overall health and wellbeing over time.
How do I take UltraClear Sustain™?
Because of the large and comprehensive range of nutrients, UltraClear Sustain™ is taken in the form of a convenient shake or drink. Mix 3 scoops (unless advised otherwise by your health care professional) of UltraClear Sustain™ with approximately 250ml of pure water, diluted fruit juice or vegetable juice and consume within ½ an hour. UltraClear Sustain™ can also be blended with fruit, or milk alternatives to make a delicious smoothie (see below for recipes).

Many people begin to feel better within a few weeks when using UltraClear Sustain™, while others take longer to experience improvement. If you experience any mild discomfort or side effects this may mean that your UltraClear Sustain™ programme needs to be adjusted and you need to contact your health care professional.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can I follow this diet if I have a sensitivity to rice?
A. Possibly. The white rice protein concentrate in UltraClear Sustain™ has undergone a process to enhance its nutritional properties and remove most common antigenic components. As a result even some rice sensitive individuals can tolerate it. Everyone’s reactions are different so you should discuss possible rice sensitivity with your health care practitioner and be alert to any symptoms of a reaction.
Q. Would this programme be helpful for a person who has recently undergone repeat antibiotic therapy?
A. Yes. Medications like antibiotics may place an added burden on your body and create an unhealthy imbalance of microflora (bacteria and yeast) in the digestive tract. Your health care practitioner may also recommend introducing a source of acidophilus or bifidus culture.
Q. Can I follow this diet if I am diabetic or hypoglycaemic?
A. Probably, but you should make this decision with the guidance of your health care practitioner.
Q. Can I use canned fish instead of fresh fish?
A. Yes. The only problem with canned fish is that it might be high in salt, contain additional oil, or be packed in lead-soldered cans. If you are salt-sensitive, select fresh fish or fish packed in spring water.
Q. Can I go on this diet if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
A. No. The UltraClear Sustain™ programme has not been tested in these situations; therefore, it is not recommended for use at these times.
Q. Can I exercise whilst I am on this programme?
A. Yes. Clinical experience has shown that some people experience reduced energy and stamina on this programme. With that precaution in mind, if you exercise regularly, give yourself permission to ease up on the length and intensity of your workout. In general, if you do not exercise routinely, it may be best to wait until you have finished the programme before adding activities to your lifestyle.
Q. Can I take supplements whilst on this diet?
A. Because this product contains good levels of carefully selected nutrients to assist the body’s gastrointestinal health, and since some supplements may contain allergens that could interfere with this process, we suggest following the recommendations of your health care practitioner.
Q. What is the “grit” in the bottom of the glass of mixed product?
A. These products are well blended during manufacturing, but a small amount of mineral remains insoluble in the final beverage. It is harmless and well absorbed by the body. Stir to get the insoluble materials into suspension as you finish drinking it.
Q. Is it possible to lose weight on the UltraClear Sustain™ programme?
A. It can help slimming or weight control only as part of a calorie controlled diet. You should discuss your calorie needs and weight goals with your health care practitioner.
Q. How often can I use the UltraClear Sustain™ product and programme?
A. You may go on the UltraClear Sustain™ programme as often as every few months, if recommended by your health care practitioner. You may repeat the programme if you know your dietary habits have been less than optimal. The UltraClear Sustain™ programme is a way to nutritionally support your liver and get yourself back on a healthy track.
