Argitein®

Disease Specific Nutrition

Conditions: 

• Pressure ulcers
• Diabetic foot ulcers
• Venous ulcers
• Burns and injuries
• Non-healing surgical wounds
• Increase protein needs

Argitein contains 5 grams of whey protein and 4.5 grams of L-Arginine in a good tasting cherry flavored powder.

The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) recommends 1.2 to 1.5 grams of protein per kg of body weight for wound healing. Larger draining wounds may require higher levels, up to 2.0 grams of protein per kg of body weight, to offset protein losses from wound exudates. Argitein yields a high-protein-nitrogen intervention to meet the increased nitrogen needs associated with chronic, non-healing wounds.

Lactose Free. Gluten Free. Sugar Free. Low Residue.

Can be used orally or through a feeding tube.
Not a sole source of nutrition.

A Medical Food
Use under medical supervision.

Argitein for the early stages of skin breakdown (PDCAAS 100)

Light and refreshing cherry flavor

Description: Argitein® is a cherry flavored instant sugar free protein and amino acid nutritional drink mix. When mixed as directed, each 6-8 oz serving provides 5 grams of Whey Protein Isolate and 4.5 grams of arginine yielding a nitrogen equivalence to 14 grams of protein intake.

Overview:

  1. It is well documented that sufficient protein is necessary for wound healing due to the increased overall protein need for tissue regeneration and repair. Whey Protein Isolate is the highest biological protein available and has been shown to promote skin health, wound healing, improved immune function, reduced oxidative stress and increased muscle strength. Whey is rich in the amino acid cysteine and as such has been shown to promote increased glutathione synthesis. Glutathione, an important intracellular antioxidant and hepatic detoxifier, acts to reduce cellular damage from oxidative stress.
  2. Arginine is a conditionally indispensable amino acid, meaning most of the time it can be manufactured by the human body, and does not need to be obtained directly through the diet. However, under certain conditions, arginine becomes an essentail amino acid and must be obtained directly through the diet. The biosynthetic pathway does not produce sufficient arginine during periods of metabolic stress such as infection, acute illness, trauma, burns, pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, malnutrition, surgery, and wounds.
  3. Additionally, the body's ability to synthesize nonessential amino acids and to utilize all amino acids, can be adversely affected by an individual's advancing age, overall health, organ health, compromised nutrient absorption capacity, and imbalances of other nutrients.

Food sources of arginine: Dairy products, beef, pork, gelatin , poultry, seafood, wheat germ and flour, buckwheat, granola, oatmeal, peanuts, nuts, chick peas, and cooked soybeans

Key arginine functions:

  1. Boosts Immune Function: Arginine stimulates the thymus and promotes lymphocyte (immune cells) production required to promote healing of burns and other wounds.
  2. Adequate tissue arginine is essential for efficient wound repair:
  • Arginine supplementation has been shown to increase collagen deposition and protein accumulation in elderly patients who sustained an experimental surgical wound.
  • Arginine is a precursor for the synthesis of nitric oxide which stimulates macrophage activity and acts as a vasodialtor, increasing wound and gut profusion. Diabetes is associated with low nitric oxide levels and supplemental arginine has been shown to correct impaired diabetic wound healing by restoring wound nitric oxide synthesis.
  • Supplemental arginine (6g/day), is effective in potentiating surgical angiogenesis in humans.
  1. Modulator of Inflammation: Arginine is involved in the production of a variety of enzymes and hormones which regulate insulin production, promote increased lean body mass and strengthen the immune system.

Product Information

Condition:
• Dehydration
• Constipation
• Urinary tract infection
• Wound Healing/Pressure Ulcers

Dehydration is one of the frequent diagnoses for MediCare hospitalizations.
      Older residents are at the greatest risk. Those over 85 are 6 times more likely to be hospitalized for dehydration than 65-69.
      A lemon flavored, sugar free electrolyte formulation designed to meet the specific electrolyte needs of the geriatric population to maintain hydration and avoid urinary tract infections, kidney infections, pressure ulcers, constipation and other conditions associated with dehydration.

Typically used for, but not limited to, dehydration associated with:
• Diarrhea and vomiting
• Fever
• Diuretic therapy
• Functional impairment ( i.e., not being able to hold a cup)
• Urinary tract infections (UTI)
• Internal Bleeding
• Swallowing disorders
• Constipation
• Draining wounds
• Respiratory infections
• Loss of thirst sensation with aging
• Dementia
• Ileostomies and colostomies
• Wound healing and pressure ulcers.

Dehydration is defined as an imbalance between intake and loss of fluid and the accompanying sodium status. Dehydration is a serious risk for the elderly because total body weight decreases with age, aging kidneys are less able to concentrate urine and the sensation of thirst decreases. Dehydration or inadequate hydration occurs when a person's loss of body fluids is more than their intake. According to the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel, maintaining adequate hydration is critical in the prevention of skin breakdown and to promote healing of draining wounds. Dehydration leads to a variety of serious health problems such as confusion and disorientation, UTI's, loss of skin integrity, bedsores, poor wound healing, pneumonia and death. The body has no provision for water storage therefore the amount of water loss every 24 hours must be replaced to maintain health and body efficiency.

Glutamine is contraindicated in liver disease and should not be given to patients in shock or who have multi-organ failure.

Medical Food
GlutaMent is a medical food. Use under supervision of a qualified medical specialist.

Product Information

Glutamine is classified as a conditionally essential amino acid. Under normal conditions, adequate amounts of glutamine can be produced by the body to provide for metabolic processes. Therefore, healthy people do not require glutamine supplementation. However, under extreme physical or metabolic stress the demand for glutamine exceeds the body's ability to synthesize it. During times of stress, such as injury, surgery, infection, non-healing wounds, HIV infection and chronic inflammatory diseases, glutamine reserves are depleted and need to be replenished through supplementation.
      Most glutamine is synthesized and stored in skeletal muscle followed by the lungs. Over 61% of skeletal muscle tissue is glutamine. L-glutamine accounts for 30-35 percent of the amino acid nitrogen in the plasma. Digestion and normal metabolic function of the intestines are dependent upon adequate amounts of glutamine.
      Glutamine deficiency develops during periods of fasting, starvation, strict dieting, and weight loss associated with AIDS, critical illness and cancer. Deficiencies cause loss of gut integrity, impaired immune function, and poor wound healing and slow recovery from illness. Glutamine deficiency can result in diarrhea, villous atrophy, mucosal ulceration, increased intestinal permeability, and intestinal necrosis.
      Food sources of glutamine include fish, meat, poultry, dairy products, beans, raw spinach, raw parsley and cabbage.

Key glutamine functions during metabolic stress related to illness or trauma.
  • Antioxidant: One of the three amino acids (glutamine, cysteine and glycine) involved in glutathione synthesis. Glutathione, an important intracellular antioxidant and hepatic detoxifier, acts to reduce cellular damage from oxidative stress.
  • Cellular Fuel: Glutamine is converted to glucose when energy needs are increased, resulting in muscle breakdown during periods of stress. Glutamine is the primary source of fuel for the mucosa lining (cells lining the intestine) and the various cells of the immune system, including T cells and macrophages. Without adequate amounts of glutamine, these cells die, resulting in malabsorption diarrhea and decreased immune function.
Indications: Typically used for, but not limited to:
  • Surgery, Wounds and Critical Illness: Clinical studies have shown that in critical illness glutamine supplementation decreases the incidence of infections, length of stay, nitrogen loss and mortality rates. During periods of metabolic stress (from injuries, infections, burns, pressure ulcers, trauma, or surgery), cortisol levels increase and can deplete glutamine stores. Several studies show that adding glutamine to enteral nutrition (tube feeding) helps reduce the rate of mortality in trauma, critical illness and burns.
  • Mucositis: Glutamine may help reduce mucositis (inflammation of the mucous membranes lining the digestive tract from the mouth to the anus) and diarrhea associated with chemotherapy. Many cancer patients have low levels of glutamine. Glutamine protects the liver during toxic chemotherapy and is used to protect the lining of the small and large intestines from damage caused by chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Glutamine helps to protect the lining of the gastrointestinal tract and individuals with ulcerative colitis may benefit from supplemental glutamine.
  • Exercise: Athletes with a strenuous training schedule may be able to reduce the risk of infections by supplementing with glutamine.
  • Prevention of Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy.

Precautions: Must only be used under medical supervision. Not intended for use as the sole source of nutrition. Not for parenteral use. In all cases, the quantity for consumption should be determined by nutritional requirements for each patient.

Contraindications: People with kidney disease, liver disease, or Reye's syndrome should not take glutamine. Supplemental l-glutamine is contraindicated in those hypersensitive to any component of a glutamine-containing product.

Banatrol Plus®

Disease Specific Nutrition

Product Information

Typically used for but not limited to diarrhea associated with:
      • Tube feeding
      • Infection Diarrhea- Clostridium difficile (CDI), salmonella
      • Medication induced diarrhea
      • Antibiotics
      • Inflammatory bowel disease
      • Irritiable Bowel Syndrom (IBS)

      Banatrol® Plus is high in pectin, a soluble fiber that acts through absorption to reduce watery diarrhea to promote normalization of colon fluid composition. Soluble fiber is gel-like and helps thicken stool consistency but does not promote hard stools and does not slow gut motility.
      Each dose of Banatrol Plus contains 2.75 grams of Bimuno, a prebiotic Trans-galactooligosaccharide which is a food source for the beneficial bacteria that reside in the colon or gut. It is not destroyed or digested in the stomach or the small intestine so it reaches the colon where it feeds the bacteria. Because of its special patented process, the prebiotic trans-galactooligosaccharide is a uniquely sized molecule which can be digested directly by only the 'good' bacteria in the gut. Other prebiotics must be broken down enzymatically making it available to both good and harmful bacteria. The growth of good bacteria proliferates at a much faster rate than the harmful bacteria which become displaced, thus helping to restore normal gut flora.

Precautions and Contra-Indications: Banatrol Plus is a medical food. Use under supervision by a qualified healthcare professional use. Not for intravenous use. Not recommended for children under 3 years of age.

Product Information

Individuals with chronic liver disease have altered nutrient absorption, metabolism and utilization. One of the primary goals of nutritional intervention for chronic liver disease is to prevent or correct the disease related malnutrition without contributing to the risk of encephalopathy.
      In end stage liver disease, a plasma amino acid imbalance exists in which branched chain amino acids (BCAA) are decreased and aromatic amino acids (AAA) plus methionine are increased. Litifi et al have shown that the BCAAs furnish as much as 30% of energy requirements for skeletal muscle, heart and brain which accounts for the decrease in serum BCAA levels. At the same time, AAAs and methionine are released into circulation from the breakdown of muscle. However, liver clearance of AAAs is depressed and plasma levels of AAAs subsequently increase. This imbalance of plasma amino acids may contribute to the development of hepatic encephalopathy by the AAAs limiting the cerebral uptake of BCAAs.

Chronic liver disease.

  • High in branched-chain amino acids (46% of protein as BCAAs)
  • Low in aromatic amino acids and methionine (2% of protein as AAAs)
  • High calorie to nitrogen ratio for protein sparing with 57% of calories from simple carbohydrates and only 28% of calories from fat to facilitate nutrient utilization.
  • NPC:N Ratio=150:1
  • Calorically dense and sodium free for fluid management (1.43 cal/mL)
  • Vitamin and mineral free to allow for greater patient acceptance.

Medical Food.
ArgiMent AT is a medical food. Use under supervision of a qualified medical specialist.

Product Information

ArgiMent® AT is a multi-nutritional approach to reduce the barriers to healing in the chronic wound:

  • Antioxidants (arginine, glutamine, zinc, and Vitamin C) and improve scar formation (maturation).
  • Immune Enhancement and restoration-(arginine, glutamine and whey protein)-to resist infection.
  • Support angiogenesis-(L-arginine)-to improve blood flow for wound profusion.
  • High-protein-nitrogen supplementation-(7g of arginine, 7g of glutamine, and 10g of whey protein)-to more easily provide for the increased protein and nitrogen needs for all steps in wound healing.
      Bimuno Prebiotic is clinically proven to have a positive effect on the immune response by significantly improving the healthful balance of gut microflora.
      When calculating protein needs, grams of individual amino acids such as arginine and glutamine are not included in total protein intake. Arginine and glutamine are given in addition to total protein needs and work in conjunction with protein for healing. The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) recommends 1.2 to 1.5 grams of protein per kg of body weight for wound healing. Larger draining wounds may require higher levels, up to 2.0g of protein per kg of body weight to offset protein losses from wound exudate. ArgiMent AT provides 10 grams of high-biological whey protein per serving in combination with 7 grams of arginine (13.5 N2 Eq) and 7 grams of glutamine (8.5 N2 Eq), yielding a high-protein-nitrogen intervention to meet the increased nitrogen needs associated with chronic, non-healing wounds.

PreB2™ Prebiotic with Bimuno®

Disease Specific Nutrition

Probiotic supplements and foods such as yogurt that contain live bacteria have a restricted role in the management of gut health due to the problems of survivability in the large intestine. PreB2 with Bimuno is a food source for the gut's beneficial bacteria and works in the following way:

  • Reaches the small intestine intact where it inhibits adhesion of G.I. pathogenic bacteria
  • In the large intestine, it is fermented by the specific beneficial bacteria which leads to a change in the pH balance resulting in a positive change in the microflora. This selective fermentation increases and strengthens the immunity boosting bacteria (bifidobacteria).
  • There is a positive direct effect on the innate immune system resulting from increased NK cell and phagocytic activity (removal of pathogens and cell debris).
  • The net effect is enhancement in gut health and general wellbeing.

Medical Food.
ProSource NoCarb Liquid Protein is a medical food. Use under supervision of a qualified medical specialist.

Product Information

Acts to meet the increased protein needs during periods of metabolic stress or inadequate intake, allowing for maintenance or restoration of body protein stores. Assessment of protein status is performed as part of the baseline nutrition evaluation to determine risk for protein malnutrition and skin failure. A resident's protein status indicates the person's ability to synthesize non-essential amino acids and to absorb and utilize essential amino acids. As protein status declines the resident is at higher risk for pressure ulcer development, poor wound healing, and infection. Under normal conditions, intact or whole dietary proteins (long chains of amino acids known as polypeptides) are hydrolyzed by digestive enzymes. Enzymatic hydrolysis "digests" or breaks down whole proteins into smaller components of amino acids and peptides to facilitate absorption. Metabolic stress reduces digestive enzyme availability and activity. ProSource® NoCarb Liquid Protein is a complete hydrolyzed protein providing all the dispensable and indispensable amino acids required for protein building (transamination) in a concentrated, sugar-free form that requires fewer digestive enzymes for absorption than intact protein. ProSource NoCarb Liquid Protein is sugar free and low in phosphorous, potassium, and sodium and complies with the majority of dietary restrictions.

Indications: Typically used for, but not limited to, meeting the needs of the nutritionally at risk; is clinically proven to help raise albumin levels in dialysis patients; is ideal for diabetics; and is the perfect no-carbohydrate supplement for gastric bypass.

Product Information


ProSource TF is the simple solution to complete an enteral formula. ProSource TF helps address the challenging role that dietitians and nurses face with critically ill patients. "The gap between the universal recommendations that critically ill patients require 1.3 to 1.5 g/kg/d of protein and the "real world" findings showing that most such patients receive not more than 0.8-1.0 g/kg/d in the best cases is puzzling and worrying. Most enteral products available are able to supply the calorie target, but they are unable to meet the protein target."2 Research has also shown that "GI complications and feeding intolerance often result in decreased provision of enteral nutrition and prolonged ICU stays."1 Additionally, "Critical illness dramatically increases muscle proteolysis (break down of muscle mass) and more than doubles the dietary protein requirements. Yet surprisingly, critically ill patients receive less than half the recommended protein during their stay in a modern ICU."3

ProSource TF helps the critically ill patient because they need the following:
   • High quality complete protein
   • Better universal tolerance
      o Thin as water, no mixing needed for TF administration in most cases.
      o Less risk of cross contamination
      o No fructose, lactose, sucrose, glycerin (Knocks out ProStat and Promod) artificial
          sweeteners, milk, dyes, gluten, pork nor added vitamins and minerals.
      o No additional calories - Just High Quality Protein.

A cranberry-flavored drink mix containing 500 mg of Cran-Max cranberry concentrate. A recently published study in the peer-reviewed Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy has shown that the administration of Cran-Max, a proprietary cranberry concentrate, provided comparable results to the commonly prescribed antibiotic trimethoprim for the prevention of recurrent urinary tract infection in older women.

Indications: Not everyone with a UTI has every symptom, but most have at least one:
• Frequency/strong urge to urinate
• Painful, burning in the area of the bladder or urethra
• Tired, shaky feeling
• Pain when urinating
• Uncomfortable pressure about the pubic bone
• Urine looks cloudy or milky
• Fever
• Nausea
• Vomiting

In a randomized, controlled clinical trial, 137 women who experienced two or more UTIs treated with antibiotic in the previous 12 months were selected to receive either 500 mg of Cran-Max or 100 mg of trimethoprim per day for six months. The researchers found that the time of first recurrence of the UTI was not significantly different between groups. The researchers concluded that in the first head-to-head, double-blind comparison of cranberry versus antibiotic prophylaxis, trimethoprim had a very limited advantage over Cran-Max in the prevention of recurrent UTIs in older women, while Cran-Max produced none of the adverse effects associated with trimethoprim, including diarrhea, upset stomach, and yeast infection. In addition, trimethoprim is contraindicated for warafin and should not be taken together.
      Unlike other cranberry products, UtyMax does not contain bromalin and do not interact with warafin or any other medications.
      UtyMax is a medical food. Use under supervision of a qualified healthcare professional.

Precautions and Contraindications: UtyMax suitability for use by swallowing- and chewing-impaired patients should be evaluated by a qualified healthcare professional or speech therapist. Not recommended for children under 3 years of age.

VitaMent®

Disease Specific Nutrition



Higher levels of key micronutrients (click here for the Key Micronutrients pdf) to reduce oxidative stress and support wound healing - Vitamins C, B Complex and E, Choline, Zinc and L-Carnitine. VitaMent is Iron and Vitamin K Free, and does not contain Phosphorus or Potassium for greater patient application.
      An orange flavored powdered instant drink mix, which is a high potency vitamin and mineral supplement for patients with increased metabolic stress related to difficult to heal surgical or pressure related wounds as well as from acute and chronic illnesses, surgery, trauma and aging . When prepared according to directions, VitaMent is a sugar free thin liquid which can be taken orally or through a feeding tube. As a powdered instant drink mix, VitaMent is more potent and is absorbed faster than tablet or capsule forms vitamin/mineral supplements -- it does not contain binders or non-nutritive, potentially harmful substances such as artificial colors, lead or nickel. VitaMent is also Vitamin K, PABA and iron free to reduce the risk of food-drug interactions. VitaMent taken twice a day provides the suggested vitamin and mineral balance to prevent and/or correct micronutrient deficiencies due to metabolic stress.
      VitaMent is designed as an instant powder to liquid to yield a high potency supplement which can be readily absorbed by the stress bowel. Even under normal conditions, typical tablet and capsule vitamin and mineral supplements are difficult to breakdown. In the clinical setting, it is common to observe vitamin pills in a patient's stool, having passed through the GI tract intact. This is especially true for patients with ostomies and elderly patients, both of whom experience impaired digestion/nutrient absorption. VitaMent is specifically formulated to meet the micronutrient needs for patients with metabolic stress and oxidative stress associated with illness, surgery, pressure ulcers and non-healing surgical wounds in one to two 4 ounce servings instead of six to eight separate pills - less inventory, less time to administer, easier to swallow, more potent and readily absorb.

Product Information

Studies performed to date indicate that the elderly are at highest risk for chronic inflammatory diseases, malnutrition, pressure ulcers and non-healing wounds. Contributing factors include reduced nutrient uptake as a result of aging and poor nutrient intake due to a variety of conditions such as poor dentition, dysphagia, poverty, chronic illness, polypharmacy and depression. As a result, the likelihood of mortality for older individuals with wounds remains high. Younger individuals with inflammatory malnutrition also experience reduced nutrient uptake and intake due to los of gut integrity and anorexia both as a result of unrelieved inflammation.

      Typically used for, but not limited to meet the micronutrient needs of the nutritionally at risk, is formulated for individuals with increased metabolic stress, malabsorption, micronutrient deficiency and/or increased micronutrient needs for any reason, is ideal for diabetics, tube feeding administration and for individuals with difficulty swallowing pills.

XtraCal™ Plus is uniquely formulated with a special class of fatty acids called medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) along with hydrolyzed collagen and whey protein to yield a preferred pattern of absorption resulting in better outcomes.
      About 97 percent of dietary fats and oils are made up of long-chain triglycerides (LCTs). LCTs contain 16 to 24 carbon atoms which require extensive processing by the body to break into smaller units for absorption. Diseases of the pancreas, liver, or small intestine impair this process, resulting in malabsorption and diarrhea.
      MCTs are much shorter in length, containing only 8 to 12 carbon atoms, and are more water-soluble. As a result, MCTs are well tolerated and are easily digested, absorbed, and utilized. Once they enter the blood stream they are transported directly into the liver where they can be rapidly converted for cellular energy. Scientific studies have shown that MCTs benefit patients suffering from malnutrition, fat malabsorption, chronic diarrhea, short bowel syndrome, and weight loss caused by AIDS as they require less energy for absorption, utilization, and storage.
      Stressed or critically ill patients have a decreased ability to digest LCTs which makes MCT oil a better calorie source. Standard high-calorie supplements rely on sugar for calories and as such are not appropriate for individuals with metabolic stress or diabetes. Excess sugar during critical illness can heighten inflammation. By providing calories from MCTs, XtraCal Plus promotes weight gain without contributing to hyperglycemia or the inflammatory response in metabolically stressed or diabetic patients.
      Metabolic stress also reduces digestive enzyme availability and activity involved in protein digestion. XtraCal Plus contains hydrolyzed collagen and whey protein containing 100 percent of all essential and non-essential amino acids. The hydrolyzed protein in XtraCal Plus is broken down by enzymes into free amino acids and polypeptides that are more easily digested and absorbed by the intestines. Standard oral supplements contain intact or whole dietary proteins (long chains of amino acids known as polypeptides) which are hydrolyzed by digestive enzymes and then absorbed.
