NutriKane is the umbrella brand for the first two MediKane products. The products have proven efficacy supported by clinical trials undertaken by universities, hospitals and medical professionals in both Australia and the USA.
These products focus on enhancing and encouraging gut health. Specifically, by rebalancing the microbiome and replenishing positive gut bacteria using prebiotics, dietary fibre, resistant starch, and bioavailable micronutrients. This reduces inflammation, combats known nutrient deficiencies, and restores balance to the gut and other abdominal organs and to our whole ‘biosystem’.
As food-based products, neither product requires regulation and registration as a pharmaceutical by Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) or the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
This is our retail product that is establishing MediKane’s reputation as a leader in the supply of natural health products. NutriKane D assists control and reduction of blood sugar levels – it also assists manage constipation and reflux during the pregnancy).

The key segment for MediKane will be the dietary fibre market for both soluble and insoluble fibre. The global dietary fibre market is well established.|
NutriKane D has been on the market in Australia since 2015. It is an all-natural, safe treatment choice to aid in the management of Blood Sugar Levels (BSLs).
Clinical trials show that NutriKane D outperforms traditional treatments for gut and bowel health in comparison to traditional pharmaceutical treatments. Specifically, NutriKane D shows a significant impact in restoring healthy Blood Sugar Levels without adverse side effects or risk of habituation or overdose.
With consistent use, NutriKane D prevents BSLs from worsening over time and many patients with specific conditions have reduced their need for medications. It is safe for the elderly, children (from 5 years) and pregnant women.
In addition to the observed blood sugar lowering benefits, NutriKane D lowers the GI of a meal and results show that it provides long term improvement to the gastrointestinal tract and microbiome, and is an effective weight reduction tool when used as part of a controlled diet and exercise program.
NutriKane D is a key part of nutrition management program. NutriKane D is taken twice a day as part of a balanced diet. It is safe to use in conjunction with traditional pharmaceutical treatments. Trials show that NutriKane D increases the efficacy of traditional pharmaceuticals because it improves the health of the gastrointestinal tract and is safe to use while taking other oral medications.
In summary, the key attributes of NutriKane D are:
- Shown to be effective in all cases tested to date and can help people living with high BSLs;
- No known side effects and cannot be overdosed;

Constipation is a major concern with patients in hospitals. People undergoing surgery are administered pain management drugs such as opioids. Over 60% of patients suffer from constipation after using opioid pain management drugs.
Consequently, constipation extends a patient’s post-operative hospital recovery period. This costs the hospital, costs taxpayers and occupies a hospital bed that may be needed by other patients.
NutriKane+ is a product for gut health for people with laxation/constipation problems in a hospital or nursing home environment.
NutriKane+ provides sufferers of constipation and faecal incontinence with a new all-natural, safe, and effective choice for regular laxation and good overall intestinal health.
NutriKane+ has been proven effective for Opioid Induced Constipation (OIC) and for general constipation in clinical trials with patients in major Australian hospitals and in the pre- and post-operative care of the patients of a leading US based colorectal surgeon. The results show that NutriKane+ was easy to use, cost efficient and an effective agent for the treatment of constipation in hospitalised patients.
NutriKane+ is more effective than the current market leading options. Independent clinical research by Royal Melbourne Hospital has shown that NutriKane+ aids intestinal and digestive health in up to 88% of individuals, 80% of whom were using other products without relief.
NutriKane+ consists of whole foods that are high in micronutrients and trace elements essential for correct intestinal function, and has the following attributes:
- A 100% natural product;
- Includes a broad-spectrum prebiotic that supports and promotes gut health;
- Clinical trials show that NutriKane+ worked in 88% of patients after other remedies had failed;

- Safe to be used by the elderly, children (from 5 years) and pregnant women;
- Lower cost of treatment; and
