GI Cleanse is a balanced nutritional shake, free from classic allergens, such as gluten, soy, dairy, and does not contain fructose or any genetically-modified foods. It provides a diverse blend of pure plant proteins combined with other essential nutrients and fiber to create a complete source of balanced daily nutrition.

Just one serving of GI Cleanse provides 20 g of high-quality protein, sourced from organic brown rice and legumes (peas). The unique complex of vegetable-based protein has a well-balanced amino acid profile including a high content of lysine, arginine, and branched chain amino acids.

GI Cleanse  suits all lifestyles and weight management goals, delivering the preferred ratio of protein, carbohydrates and fat necessary for a balanced diet in two delicious flavors: rich dark chocolate or creamy vanilla. GI Cleanse is specially formulated to curb cravings, maintain glycemic balance and help individuals on specialty diets easily adhere to their prescribed meal plan.
