The first plant-based medical food that is clinically proven to help reduce the GI side effects of chemotherapy, radiation treatment, and immunotherapy.

What we do

Many cancer patients choose to discontinue life saving treatments due to the severity of side effects. We knew we needed to help. At enterade®, we are dedicated to improving lives. Our patented amino acid formula is clinically proven to help reduce the GI side effects of cancer treatments, such as nausea, diarrhea, dehydration, fatigue, and weight loss. We’re on a mission to help you feel better so you can fight harder and feel like yourself during the most difficult time of your life.

Research Driven

Our proprietary amino acid formula originated as part of a $40 million grant from NASA to study the effects of deep space radiation on astronauts for BioShield4Mars.

enterade® is backed by clinical studies completed at Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Massachusetts General Hospital, University of Kentucky’s Markey Cancer Center, and GenesisCare (formerly 21st Century Oncology).

Plant-Based Ingredients

enterade® is formulated with a proprietary blend of five amino acids: l-aspartic acid, L-valine, L-serine, L-threonine, and L-tyrosine.

Other ingredients in enterade: water, amino acids blend, natural flavor, sodium chloride, sodium citrate, potassium chloride, magnesium chloride, calcium chloride, stevia leaf extract

Patient Tested

More than just a beverage.

Unlike typical rehydration solutions, sports drinks, and water alone, enterade® is a medical food formulated with a proprietary blend of amino acids to help rebuild, protect, and hydrate the gastrointestinal tract after damage from cancer treatments.


How we’re different

The gastrointestinal tract houses cells that are responsible for maintaining our overall health. When those cells are compromised, we can suffer from symptoms that make us feel run down and sick to our stomachs. 

While cancer treatments are highly effective in targeting bad cells, they also damage good cells within the gut, resulting in GI distress. These “good” cells make up a barrier that keeps toxins and bacteria from entering the bloodstream. When these cells are damaged, gaps form in the barrier and allow toxins to enter into the body, resulting in diarrhea, nausea, and fatigue.

We also have cells in our gut called villi. Villi are responsible for nutrient absorption. When they are healthy, they absorb nutrients from the foods we eat, and then our bodies can turn that food into energy. When the villi are damaged, we aren’t able to absorb the same amount of nutrients–leading to malnutrition, unwanted weight loss, and fatigue. 

We’ve dedicated years of research to developing a formula that combats those negative effects.

enterade® helps strengthen the gut barrier and rebuild the gut villi to maintain optimal GI health while undergoing cancer treatments. 

Our history

Did you know: we can’t send astronauts to Mars because they don’t have the guts?

No, really.

As brave as they are, their actual GUTS can’t handle the space travel required to get from Earth to Mars. This is due to the amount of radiation they have to endure once they get into space.

Enterade originated from a formula developed for NASA to help mitigate the effects of deep space radiation on the GI tracts of astronauts. The gastroenterologists and oncologists working on the program had the epiphany of a lifetime: deep space radiation isn’t very different from the radiation experienced by cancer patients here on Earth.

Then the bigger epiphany: irradiated guts are no different than chemo or immunotherapy damaged guts. If enterade can help repair the GI tract in one, why wouldn’t it work for all?

It did.

Something that began as a moonshot (or a mars-shot) quickly became a reality as we saw the tremendous impact the product had on patients around the country.

Enterade is in a world of it’s own.

What our patients say:

I am on day 3 of enterade and it is absolutely amazing how I’ve had almost no GI issues. I’m on cycle 14 this week, which includes large doses of irenitecan, magnesium, and potassium, which all give me GI issues. I feel great. Who would’ve thought!

I went through 6 rounds of chemo from October 2021 to February 2022. Enterade was a life saver that kept me hydrated and decreased my nausea. Praise the Lord, I am Cancer Free currently. Praying for all of you going through chemo and radiation currently. 

Facebook Review

I am currently receiving chemotherapy for uterine cancer stage 3. I have been using this food after reading about it and it worked like a charm…then I ran out! Big problem…and was hospitalized twice for symptom management …until Enterade was again available. Within 2 days, all vomiting and diarrhea STOPPED and I’m not dreading my next infusion on Monday. Customer service is excellent as well.
