DermaRite ProHeal Critical Care Advanced liquid protein supplement is a formula specifically designed for wound recovery. This product is similar to ProHeal liquid protein in that it contains a special mixture of collagen and whey protein that helps promotes maximum protein absorption. ProHeal advanced wound recovery formula differs in a few ways, however. First, Critical Care Advanced contains a whopping 17 grams of protein per fluid ounce. Plus, this supplement is fortified with vitamin C and L-Argentine to support collagen synthesis in tissue repair. ProHeal Critical Care advanced protein supplement with vitamin C can be either taken orally or through a feeding tube and provides 100 calories per serving. This product is sugar-free and gluten-free and is also made without soy or lactose. Combine this product with Mepilex Border which can help prevent infection while wounds heal.
Protein in Wound Management
Proper protein intake is necessary for wounds to heal. Protein serves the body in many ways, mainly in the development of tissues and synthesis of chemicals that allow your cells to communicate with one another. Without protein, your body cannot communicate proper immune system responses, slowing healing and increasing risks of infection. Also, protein deficiency can prolong the inflammation of wounds, causing the unnecessary continuance of discomfort.
Making Sure You Get Enough Protein
According to a study done by the Gerontological Society of America, determined that those who had a high protein intake had only a 50% functionality decline as those who didn't. As your body advances into its elderly graces, your body becomes less and less able to process proteins needed to maintain your muscle mass, bones, and many other important bodily functions. As a result, as you age, the amount of protein your body needs increases. Despite this, a recent study published in The Journal of Contemporary Clinical Trials determined that 1/3 of elderly adults don't have enough protein in their diets. Making sure that you're eating enough protein can be a challenge, especially as your health needs change. However, it's worth the effort to keep up on your protein as researchers at the Gerontological Society of America ultimately discovered that proper protein intake can prevent functional impairment.
