Details

VIVONEX Plus is a high-nitrogen, very low fat, elemental (100% free amino acids) diet for total enteral nutrition. Additional free glutamine (10 g/L), enhanced arginine and branched-chain amino acid contents make it especially useful in stressed, catabolic patients. Vivonex Plus may be used post-operatively as an enteral alternative to TPN and may also benefit patients with gastrointestinal impairment. Each 2.8 oz. dry packet (79.5 g of Vivonex Plus powder), when reconstituted with 250 mL water, delivers 300 mL of formula.
