About Modular Components
A dietary supplement is necessary when a patient does not get enough nutrients through regular meals. When an individual experiences protein deficiency, some modular component options can be taken to fill the gap of protein malnutrition. We offer some great supplements from ProSource, made for patients with recent gastric bypass or bariatric surgery, fluid restrictions, HIV/AIDS, diabetic leg wounds, or those on a clear liquid diet. Prosource Protein Supplements are easy to use because they can be mixed directly with hot or cold foods or beverages and provide a great dose of protein that delivers energy.
Arginine is an amino acid that is naturally produced in the human body to aid during times of metabolic stress. We carry Arginaid oral supplements ready to drink out of the carton and L-Emental Powder Mix packets. Our ready-to-drink cartons are packed with protein, L-arginine, zinc, and antioxidant vitamins C and E, which are very useful to support the body's nutritional needs when healing wounds but should always be used under medical supervision. The L-Emental Powder Mix is easy to prepare because it can be served chilled when added to water or juice. Many patients who are bedridden and incontinent experience pressure ulcers at some point, and arginine supplements can provide the needed nutrition to heal the skin quicker.
