If you’ve been struggling to find a nutritional formula that works for you, you’ve come to the right place. Kate Farms formulas stand apart from the pack by providing organic ingredients and plant-based nutrition. But the benefits of Kate Farms formulas go beyond nutrition, to affect overall well-being in some pretty profound ways. Here are six life-changing benefits of Kate Farms formulas.
A major problem for many people who rely on liquid formulas is intolerance. In fact, in a survey of health care providers, 85 percent said they often have to try two or three formulas before finding one that works for their patients, and 83 percent said this is due to gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms of intolerance1.
If the food that’s supposed to help you get better is causing additional bloating, gas, vomiting, gagging, abdominal pain, diarrhea, or constipation, it’s not helping the way it should. Kate Farms formulas are plant-based and organic—without the soy, dairy, sugar, or allergens found in other formulas. Of the clinicians surveyed, 87 percent reported improved symptoms of GI intolerance in most or all of their patients2.
Thick formulas can clog feeding tubes, leading to a vicious cycle of removing and replacing the tube and trying a new formula. In the meantime, you aren’t getting the nutrition you need. Kate Farms formulas are the ideal viscosity for tube feeding, helping to eliminate clogged tubes that can lead to malnutrition.
Kate Farms doesn’t just focus on making sure you get enough protein, carbohydrates, and fat to survive. They’re made from ingredients like organic pea protein and functional fats—and without dairy, soy, gluten, corn, nuts, artificial sweeteners or additives.
The plant-based formulas provide vital nutrients that fans of Kate Farms say give them more energy, help them feel satisfied, and contribute to an overall improved mood and quality of life.
For children diagnosed with failure to thrive, Kate Farms formulas can be a lifesaver. These formulas can provide the nutrients children need to gain the necessary weight to live a healthy life.
A study conducted at the Children’s Center for Digestive Health Care in Atlanta has found that Kate Farms’ plant-based formulas can promote weight gain in young patients. Over the course of the study, the average subject—who ranged in age from 3 to 23—gained 8 pounds over six months3.
For one Kate Farms user who struggled with years of malnutrition due to gastroparesis, switching to Kate Farms formulas has helped her end malnutrition, manage her chronic condition, and finally enjoy spending quality time with her husband.
As she says: "Years of malnutrition made me forget I actually do have a personality and love sharing it with others."
Having a medical need for nutritional formula shouldn’t mean choosing between quality nutrition or going hungry. Kate Farms provides the safety of a conventional formula with a higher-quality nutritional product that meets a real need in the community, says Annette Whitney, M.D., a pediatric gastroenterologist in Dallas, Texas.
"Until now, there hasn’t been a formula my patients’ parents could feel good about giving their child after reading the ingredients," she says.
