Product Information

Zinc, Arginine and Vitamin C. Sugar Free

ProSource ZAC combines the efficiency of hydrolyzed collagen and whey protein for a concentrated, low volume, high protein supplement containing 21 grams of protein, 90 calories, 10 mg of Zinc, 3.2 grams of Arginine and 175 mg of Vitamin C.

ProSource Liquid’s hydrolyzed protein is broken down by enzymes into free amino acids and polypeptides that are easily digested and absorbed by the intestines. ZAC is an effective protein for Stage 1 and Stage 2 pressure injuries.

ProSource ZAC works to meet the increased protein needs during periods of metabolic stress or inadequate intake allowing for maintenance or restoration of body protein stores. Assessment of protein status is performed as part of the baseline nutrition evaluation and to assess risk for protein malnutrition and skin failure. A resident’s protein status indicates the person’s ability to synthesize non-essential amino acids and to absorb and utilize essential amino acids. As protein status declines the resident is at higher risk for pressure injury development, poor wound healing, and infection. Under normal conditions, intact or whole dietary proteins (long chains of amino acids known as polypeptides) are hydrolyzed by digestive enzymes. Enzymatic hydrolysis “digests” or breaks down whole proteins into smaller components of amino acids and peptides to facilitate absorption. Metabolic stress reduces digestive enzyme availability and activity, Liquid ProSource is a complete hydrolyzed protein proving all the dispensable and indispensable amino acids required for protein building (transamination) in a concentrated, sugar free form that requires fewer digestive enzymes for absorption than intact protein. ProSource ZAC is sugar free and low in phosphorous, potassium and sodium and complies with the majority of dietary restrictions.

Indications: Typically used for but not limited to, meet the needs of the nutritionally at risk, is clinically proven to help heal wounds and raise albumin levels in dialysis patients, is ideal for diabetics and is the perfect no carbohydrate supplement for gastric bypass.

I am the Clinical RD for a ltc/rehab facility. We have been using Medtrition products for over 3 years. Our residents have shown significant progress in protein malnutrition and wound healing from using ProSource NoCarb, ArgiMent AT, ProSource ZAC, ProSource TF, Gelatein 20 and Gelatein Plus. The Nursing Staff has been able to achieve excellent outcomes with Stage II, III and IV wounds. They are all more well-accepted by the residents and easier to administer than the previous supplements and modalities. With the fast pace of admissions, discharges, rehab and surgical needs, we have determined that Medtrition has come to answer all our needs for supplementation. Flexibility, dosages, ease of administration, shelf stability, taste acceptance, nutritional content and educational support are typical descriptions I receive from staff regarding Medtrition’s products and their Sales Representative and Support Staff.
