EnteraGam® is Unlike Anything Else for Chronic Diarrhea

Tired of rearranging your days around chronic diarrhea and loose stools – or having to cancel altogether? EnteraGam® may help manage your condition.

EnteraGam® is a medical food product that is completely different from other therapies because it helps address the nutritional needs of people who have chronic diarrhea and loose stools. Some people notice management of their condition with EnteraGam® in as little as 2 to 4 weeks.1

Works right at the source of the problem

When you have chronic diarrhea and loose stools due to specific intestinal conditions (like irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea [IBS-D] or inflammatory bowel disease), different factors can upset the environment in your intestine (gut).

When the environment inside your gut is functioning the way it should, it is called a stable environment. When substances (both foreign or natural) that may be toxic to the gut penetrate the lining of the intestine (also known as the gut barrier), it may upset this delicate balance, which can2,3:

  • Contribute to chronic diarrhea and loose stools in people with many different intestinal conditions
  • Prevent your body from properly absorbing nutrients from foods and fluid

EnteraGam® uniquely binds toxic substances released by bacteria (and other substances called microbial components) that upset the intestinal environment.4 This helps prevent them from penetrating the lining of the intestine and causing problems. EnteraGam® may also help2,5-10:

  • Restore a stable environment in your gut
  • Manage how your gut barrier works
  • Support proper absorption of nutrients

EnteraGam® helps you avoid having to rearrange or cancel your plans due to your condition. In a clinical study, people who took EnteraGam® experienced fewer days per week with loose stools and other IBS-D related symptoms, including abdominal discomfort and bloating. Some people notice management of their condition with EnteraGam® in as little as 2 to 4 weeks.1


Easy to take

EnteraGam® is a fine powder that can be easily mixed into at least 4 ounces of liquid (water or other liquid as preferred). Or, EnteraGam® can be mixed with soft foods, such as pudding or yogurt.10

Your doctor will determine your starting dose of EnteraGam® based on the number of loose or watery stools you have per day. Anywhere from 1 to 4 packets per day may be prescribed.10
