ArgiMent® AT with Bimuno Prebiotic.
ArgiMent AT is specifically formulated to provide the nutrients for the dietary management of pressure ulcers and wounds that require enhanced levels of protein, vitamins and minerals.
The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) recommends 1.2 to 1.5 grams 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 body weight 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.
Glutamine is contraindicated in liver disease and should not be given to patients in shock or who have multi-organ failure.
"We have a major challenge with new residents in need of treatment for wounds and existing residents being prone to bed sores. On average we administer over 240 doses of Argiment AT every month. We do this because Argiment AT works and it is the only product that we are willing to use.
"I would like to share with you our success in using Argiment AT for our patients experiencing wound healing problems. This works so well that we have patients being discharged to their home, and request a case to take with them as they saw such amazing results. One patient said that after her amputation, she thought it would never heal, and after a month on ArgiMent AT, her wound has completely healed. Now she won't be without it for fear of having issues. This is truly an amazing testament to your product! Thank you for making this available to us, as well as having a very efficient rep for your company. Thank you again!"

"We've been using ArgiMent AT more and more, as we've seen the rapid healing take place once we've put a resident on it. More recently, it has made a tremendous impact on a resident who came to us with chronic, non-healing wounds. I highly recommend this product for those needing a more complete wound-healing supplement, and the flavor is well accepted! "

"Your Argiment AT has been a lifesaver! I have had Type 1 diabetes for over 40 years and recently had foot surgery for a broken toe. I followed my doctor's instructions - kept my foot elevated and my sugars under tight control, but 3 weeks after surgery, my foot was still really swollen and the incision looked chewed on - ugh! My surgeon thought my return to work date would be delayed and he suggested that I try your ArgiMentAT. Well, 2 weeks later, the swelling in my foot is almost all gone, the incision is closed and I'm scheduled to return to work as originally planned! I really can't thank you enough."

"I have used regular ArgiMent for at least 5 years with great outcomes in my patients with pressure ulcers. I attended a wound care conference several years ago and since then have used a cocktail of ArgiMent along with your ProSource protein powder and VitaMent. I used it twice a day for stage 3 and 4's. A couple of years ago, we started using the cocktail once a day for our patients with surgical wounds or stage 1 and 2 pressure ulcers. The only reason that the nurses were willing to mix the cocktail was because they could see how well the patients responded. Unfortunately, many patients complained about the taste of the combination of products."
"I feel your new ArgiMent AT is like a gift to both our patients and nurses - no more multiple mixing and the patients really like the flavor. We have used the ArgiMent AT for about 1-2 months, twice a day for stage 3 and 4 pressure ulcers as before but with only one pack of VitaMent and just once a day for lesser wounds. Our patients are more compliant, which makes it easier for us to heal their wounds. I told the nurses that I was writing this testimonial and they wanted to send their 'Thank you's too!'"
"We just got ArgiMent AT added to our formulary! We purchased a couple of cases to try with 3 of our patients' with pressure ulcers - after 4 weeks, 2 of the patients wounds had improved enough to step them down to just a protein fortified diet (we use liquid ProSource plus as a med pass). The 3rd patient is progressing more slowly - his intake overall is poor and he really needs a peg tube. I mixed a pack of Xtracal Plus in with the ArgiMent AT. He likes the taste and hopefully will continue to improve - better slow than not at all. Anyway, thanks for a great product and I really like that the ArgiMent AT has prebio in it."
