What’s in Essential Care Jr.

We worked closely with several GI and Allergy health care professionals and leveraged our team’s 40+ years of experience with severe protein allergy in creating Essential Care Jr.  We set out to make an essentially better formula for your patients’ needs.  We carefully selected only low FODMAP ingredients, balanced key nutrients to achieve the lowest PRAL, utilized the purest pharmaceutical-grade amino acids and added special micronutrients important to your patient’s health that are not found in most similar products – Vitamin K2 for bone health, Lutein and DHA for eye and brain health, and enhanced blend of Essential amino acids.  Essentially better at essentially the same price as the current brands.

When Allergies Continue Beyond Infancy

Though the majority of infants with a cow’s milk allergy will outgrow the sensitivity by his or her first birthday, it is common to remain intolerant to the protein well beyond 1 year of age. Using an amino acid formula can ensure your child receives all of the nutrients that he or she needs without being exposed to potential allergens.

Our Proprietary Amino Acid Blend

By means of careful testing and study, we have developed a combination of amino acids that promotes muscle synthesis. Each serving includes 3 grams of EAA-40L™, a proprietary, leucine-rich blend of essential amino acids every bit as beneficial as those found in more common whole proteins like whey, and at lower doses.
