Entera Health Inc. is excited about recognition for its premier brand.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Last year was a notable year for irritable bowel syndrome in the mainstream media. Even more notable was that two of those articles included a medical food product indicated for the dietary management of chronic diarrhea and loose stools -- EnteraGam® (serum-derived bovine immunoglobulin/protein isolate, SBI).
Prevention Magazine’s November issue included the article: Problem Solved! Irritable Bowel Syndrome, which included information about EnteraGam®:
Inflammation from an injury, an infection, or a chronic condition may make the gut’s structure more permeable, providing easier access for toxins. EnteraGam® is prescribed “medical food” consisting mainly of beef protein that helps facilitate gut healing and promote intestinal immunity…. Pilot studies find that mixing 5 to 10 g of the powder into liquids or soft foods each day can thicken stools and relieve symptoms like abdominal pain and bloating.
Earlier in the year, American Gastroenterological Association's (AGA) “IBS in America” national survey reported:
.. only “prescription meds, EnteraGam®” and “prescription meds approved for IBS-D” garnered “very satisfied” ratings by more than one-quarter of IBS-D patients.

This type of exposure will allow more patients who need help to discover a safe way to manage their condition.”
