Metagenics UltraMeal® PLUS Natural Vanilla Description
With Beta-Sitosterol and Other Plant Sterols
Nutritional Support for the Management of Conditions Associated with Metabolic Syndrome and Cardiovascular Disease
Hypercholesterolemia • Hypertriglyceridemia • Hypertension
UltraMeal PLUS is a medical food formulated to nutritionally support the management of conditions associated with metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease, including hypercholesterolemia, hypertriglyceridemia, and hypertension. UltraMeal PLUS—along with a low-glycemic-index dietary program and regular exercise—has been clinically tested and shown to improve 14 markers of cardiovascular health and support a healthy body composition (a healthy ratio of lean muscle mass to fat mass).
Each serving of UltraMeal PLUS provides:
- A proprietary soy protein and plant sterol blend that provides 2 grams of plant sterols (including beta-sitosterol) and 15 grams of soy protein per serving. Foods containing at least 0.65 g per serving of plant sterol esters, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 1.3 g, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 25 grams of soy protein a day may reduce the risk of heart disease. Soy protein has also been shown to have cholesterol-lowering effects.
- 600 mg of dairy-free calcium (60% RDI). Calcium, along with regular exercise and a health diet, can play a significant role in reducing the rate of bone loss or bone thinning and protecting bone strength.
- 5-methyl tetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF)—a body-ready, nature-identical folate—to promote healthy homocysteine levels for cardiovascular health.
- Low-glycemic-index meal option to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
- Good source of fiber for gastrointestinal health.
- Comprehensive foundation nutrition for overall health.
The National Cholesterol Education Panel of the National Institutes of Health recommends a healthy diet and regular exercise, along with the consumption of 2 grams of plant sterols and 10-25 grams of fiber daily, to promote cardiovascular health.
Blend, shake, or briskly stir about 2 level scoops of UltraMeal PLUS into 8 fluid ounces of chilled water twice daily, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.

This produce is a great replacement for a meal.
I take this produce every morning as a meal replacement, and I also give it to my teenage daughter. She hates having breakfast, so this is a great way of getting her to take some nutrients in the morning.
