Metabolic Detoxification | Are You Toxic?
Supporting the Body’s Ability to Cleanse*
Environmental pollutants are everywhere in our environment—in what we touch, eat, drink, and breathe. Long-term exposure to even trace amounts of these substances has been linked with a number of undesirable health effects. Under normal circumstances, our bodies are well equipped to filter out harmful chemicals and pollutants to protect against their effects. Sometimes, however, the volume of exposure can overburden these natural processes and allow some of these substances to accumulate in tissue. Nutrient-deficient diets and heavy consumption of processed foods can create further challenges.
The Phases of Metabolic Detoxification
The body’s natural cleansing or filtering process primarily involves the liver, digestive tract, lungs, and kidneys. Unwanted or potentially hazardous compounds that are soluble in water are easily eliminated (e.g., stool, sweat, urine). But fat-soluble compounds require enzymes from the liver to help break them down into neutralized, water-soluble substances for transport to the kidneys or intestines for elimination. Individual detoxification capabilities vary. “Environmental overload” or lack of nutrients to fuel necessary detoxification activities may also prevent harmful, fat-soluble compounds from undergoing this transformation process. Over time, this may influence the way you feel.
Nutritional Support for Metabolic Detoxification*
Metagenics offers a complete line of natural, science-based formulas to nutritionally support the natural pathways of metabolic detoxification to promote overall health.*
How does UltraClear RENEW™ Medical Food compare to other products or approaches?
Unlike some approaches, this medical foodprogram provides a science-based protocol to help address underlying factors that may increase symptoms in chemically sensitive individuals. It’s the only medical food that specifically targets pain signaling and neuromuscular function in patients with fibromyalgia in a manner that does not carry a risk of serious adverse events associated with common target pathways to relieve pain. This product contains only natural ingredients for a safer approach with a scientifically designed blend of targeted nutrients—including quality rice protein—to support energy metabolism and balanced activities in both phases of the body’s detoxification process, particularly the second phase.
How does UltraClear RENEW™ Medical Food work?
This medical food provides nutrients that help target underlying issues associated with fibromyalgia, such as altered pain signaling and neuromuscular function . Science-based metabolic detoxification programs are often recommended as a first approach to help clean out the environmental “junk” that may be affecting your health—or causing you pain. Some evidence suggests that certain heavy metals, such as the mercury in dental amalgam, may increase pain and fatigue in those who are already chemically sensitive. UltraClear RENEW is formulated to help relieve pain and stiffness, and also provides research-based nutrients to support important detoxification activities, such as heavy metal metabolism . The rice protein base has a lower allergenic potential than many common protein sources, which (along with careful formulation and manufacturing) helps make this product suitable for dietary elimination programs. This product is recommended for use with a modified elimination diet that reduces dietary chemical exposure.
How long is UltraClear RENEW™ Medical Food typically recommended?
In a 4-week preliminary study,** the UltraClear RENEW program demonstrated significantly decreased pain and stiffness, improved quality of life, and increased mercury excretion. This product may also be recommended for long-term support. For best results, follow your health care professional’s guidelines.

How would a detoxification program help me?
Today, we are all exposed to chemicals in the foods we eat, the air we breathe, and the water we drink. Many common complaints to doctors, such as mental and physical fatigue, may be signs of environmental overload. Supporting the body’s natural metabolic detoxification process may be beneficial. Not all detoxification programs are science-based, and some may deplete the body of vital nutrients and energy to support the natural elimination process.
Who would benefit from UltraClear RENEW™ Medical Food?
People whose quality of life is affected by recurring, non-specific muscle pain and stiffness associated with fibromyalgia, a condition characterized by altered pain signaling and neuromuscular function . This formula was designed for individuals who may benefit from additional support for detoxification function, including heavy metabolism , which may be influencing symptoms.
Why is UltraClear RENEW™ Medical Food safe?
Medical foods must contain ingredients that are generally regarded as safe (GRAS) or FDA approved, and Metagenics continually evaluates formula ingredients in concert with current nutritional research for optimal safety and effectiveness. Plus, Metagenics’ manufacturing facility has 3 certifications for good manufacturing practices to ensure the highest quality. (This product is not recommended for those taking anti-coagulant medications. This product is suitable for those who may be sensitive to lactose or soy.
