VIVONEX® PLUS

VIVONEX® PLUS

  • 100% free amino acids for severely compromised GI tracts
  • 6% of calories from fat for improved tolerance and reduced pancreatic stimulation
  • Glutamine, arginine and branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) content make it useful in stressed, catabolic patients
  • Requires minimal digestive functionality for assimilation while providing benefits associated with continued use of the GI tract
  • Can be used for tube feeding or oral supplementation

 

VIVONEX® PLUS formula is designed to contain low quantities of fat, which under some circumstances may be insufficient to meet the essential fatty acid (EFA) requirements. VIVONEX® PLUS should be utilized only under medical supervision.
