Nestle Arginaid Arginine Powder is an orange flavored nutritional drink mix developed to support individuals with wound healing after surgery as well as chronic wounds, including burns and pressure ulcers. This supplement drink is named after its key player L-arginine, an amino acid that has been shown to relax and dilate the blood vessels to increase blood circulation resulting in faster wound recovery due to an improved cardiovascular system.
Arginaid Wound Healing Powder comes in a 9.2 gram packet. It mixes easily into 6-8 ounces water or juice to drink or you can add to yogurt or applesauce as an easy and convenient way to consume the L-arginine. The packets are portable to make sure you keep them on hand as you are on your way to better health. Arginaid drink mix also supplies vitamin C, a necessary component in forming collagen and vitamin E, an antioxidant also found to support and speed up wound healing and even improve the appearance and scarring from burns.
Each serving packet contains 25 calories and is suitable for individuals who also require a calorie restriction diet. The ingredients are also ideal for diets that are gluten-free, sugar-free, lactose-free and kosher. It can also be administered for tube feeding but not for IV use. For optimal wound healing results, it is recommended to consume two servings per day.
Arginine Powder comes in a box of 14 packets or a case of four boxes for a total of 56 packets. You can even try it out before committing to a box by purchasing a single sample packet. Nestle also makes Arginaid Extra in cartons for a ready-to-drink option.
