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.
