Introducing our new items from Medtrition!!
Banatrol® Plus is high in pectin, a soluble fiber that acts through absorption to reduce watery diarrhea8 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 g of Bimuno®, a prebiotic Trans-galactooligosaccharide that 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 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 that can be digested directly by only the “good” bacteria in the gut. Banatrol Plus is specifically formulated to provide the nutrients for the dietary management of diarrhea without medication.
ArgiMent® is specifically formulated to provide arginine and glutamine for the dietary management of pressure injury and surgical wounds. During periods of metabolic stress from illness, wounds or surgery, a balanced diet may not provide adequate amounts of critical nutrients known as “conditionally essential nutrients” needed for healing. ArgiMent provides the highest levels of two key conditionally essential amino acids involved in healing:
Arginine: Promotes blood flow throughout the body, delivering nutrients and oxygen to support tissue healing.
• Joins with other nutrients to form collagen protein required for tissue repair.
Glutamine: Acts as fuel for rapidly proliferating cells, helping to maintain gut integrity, and thus promotes nutrient absorption.
• Stimulates the synthesis of muscle tissue and inhibits the degradation of proteins, thus preserving lean muscle mass required for healing.
ArgiMent® AT is specifically formulated to provide nutrients for the dietary management of pressure injury and wounds that require enhanced levels of proteins, vitamins and minerals.
• Pressure injury • Diabetic foot ulcers
• Venous ulcers • Burns and Injuries
• Decreased protein • Pre-/Post-surgical recovery
The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) recommends 1.2 to 1.5 g of protein per kg of bodyweight for wound healing. Larger draining wounds may require higher levels, up to 2.0 g of protein per kg of bodyweight to offset protein losses from wound exudates. ArgiMent AT yields a high-protein-nitrogen intervention to meet the increased nitrogen needs associated with chronic, non-healing wounds.
GlutaMent® is specifically formulated to provide the nutrients for the dietary management of conditions associated with impaired gastrointestinal function or impaired immune function. Digestion and normal metabolic function of the intestines depend 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, poor wound healing and slow recovery from illness. Glutamine deficiency can result in diarrhea, villous atrophy, mucosal ulceration, increased intestinal permeability and intestinal necrosis.
The goal for many individuals undergoing oncology treatments or dialysis, as well as those with altered nutritional status due to advanced age or illness, is to maintain or achieve adequate protein and calorie intake, promote wound healing and preserve/achieve nutritional health regardless of dietary restrictions. RenaMent® provides a good-tasting, convenient, low-volume 4-oz. shake with calories, fat and protein of typical 8-oz. supplements.
