As a nutritionist, Proteinex is a great choice for a wide range of patients. Those recovering from surgery, wounds and burns or our patients with low serum albumin levels and needing extra lean protein. Made from collagen, the high quality amino acids are hydrolyzed and concentrated so it’s easy on digestion that can sometimes be compromised in surgery and the small liquid dose (just 2 Tbsp for 18 grams of protein) is perfect for a quick swallow, adding to juice or smoothies or adding to an enteral feeding without needing to increase feed rates. Because there are no other added ingredients, allergies and intolerances are not a concern, there’s no added bulk, just straight, clean, complete protein that increases lean muscle mass and speeds up wound healing. Proteinex is free from sugars or refined carbohydrates and is low in total carbohydrates making it an ideal choice for both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics. Because Proteinex has been used by professionals for over 30 years I feel confident prescribing and recommending it whenever protein needs are increased
Furthermore Proteinex is ideal for patients that have undergone bariatric surgery. The quick, concentrated, hydrolyzed protein helps to meet their macros easily, without upsetting delicate GI systems. The nutrient density is second to none for those first few days and weeks after surgery when a liquid diet is imperative and small servings are critical. Patients can continue on the Proteinex even after recovery as they move towards a more long term nutrition plan that remains nutrient dense. It’s ideal because it mixes well with juice and smoothies and tastes great. Because it’s made from collagen our patients get to enjoy all the benefits of shiny hair, strong nails and smooth skin which is just an added bonus!
Proteinex is an excellent, clean, complete protein source that is beneficial for both critical and chronic patients dealing with a wide range of medical complexities. I recommend it for anyone with increased protein needs or for those who need a nutrient dense, low volume diet.
