Argitein is specifically formulated to provide the nutrients for the dietary management of pressure injury and stage 1 and stage 2 wounds that require enhanced levels of protein and L-arginine. Designed especially to treat the early stages of skin breakdown.
• Pressure injury
• Diabetic foot ulcers
• Venous ulcers
• Burns and injuries
• Non-healing surgical wounds
• Increase protein needs
Argitein yields a high-protein nitrogen intervention to meet the increased nitrogen needs associated with chronic, non-healing wounds. According to the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP), the protein intake required for healing such wounds is 1.2 to 1.5 grams of protein per kg of body weight. 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.
One packet of Argitein contains 5 grams of whey protein isolate and 4.5 grams of L-Arginine, or the nitrogen equivalent of 14 grams of intact protein, in a good-tasting, cherry-flavored powder.
