Nutrition for Surgery

CF(Preop)®

Presurgery Nutrition:
For the 12 Hours Before Surgery

Anesthesiologist-developed CF(Preop)® was designed to give your body the critical, recovery-enhancing nutrients and medical-grade hydration it needs in the 12-hour fasting window before surgery, without disrupting your doctor’s instructions to fast.

Why you were told to fast:

Doctors encourage fasting before surgery to ensure patients have an empty stomach and no colored dyes in their system. Having food in your stomach can lead to aspiration during surgery, and having colored dyes in your system can interfere with the safety of your procedure.

The problem with fasting:

Even the most minor surgery is extremely physically taxing on your body. Undergoing a procedure starved and dehydrated after a 12-hour fast puts you in a weakened state to face the incredible amount of stress surgery puts on your body.

The solution: clean, compliant presurgery nutrition

Gluten-free, dairy-free, and free from simple sugars and colored dyes, CF(Preop)® is the only clean, research-backed, anesthesiologist-developed presurgery drink specifically formulated to address the nuances of nourishing before surgery without disrupting your doctor’s instructions to fast. Designed to clear from your stomach in 60-90 minutes, drinking CF(Preop)® and nothing else in the fasting window allows you to safely nourish and hydrate your body with the complex carbs, electrolytes, and healing minerals it needs to enter surgery stronger and recover faster. The proven benefits of drinking CF(Preop)® before surgery include:

  • Hydrated veins and easier, less painful IV “sticks”
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Reduced risk of surgical infection
  • Reduced risk of post-op nausea and vomiting
  • Faster recovery from surgery and
    shorter hospital stays

CF(Protein)®

Immunonutrition:
For the Days Before + After Surgery

CF(Protein)® is a clean, all natural plant protein drink specifically designed to get patients strong and healthy in the days and weeks leading up to and following surgery. Made from only the highest-quality ingredients and natural, plant-based proteins, CF(Protein)® offers everything you need to enter anesthesia stronger and bounce back better.

Why plant protein?

Compared to whey or animal proteins, the vegan protein found in CF(Protein)® is easier to digest, better for the environment, allergy- and speciality-diet friendly, and chock-full of fiber, vitamins, and minerals that often aren’t present in animal protein drinks.

Making CFprotein® part of your surgery nutrition plan

Entering surgery mal- or under-nourished or can lead to serious post-op complications like surgical infection and pneumonia. By supplementing a healthy diet with CF(Protein)®, patients build a solid nutritional foundation for their upcoming procedure and can enhance their recovery after surgery.

Working CF(Protein)® into both your pre-op and post-op nutrition plan allows you to nourish your body with the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and clean protein it needs to avoid surgical complications and recover stronger, faster, and fully. CF(Protein)® should not be consumed during the 12-hour fasting window before surgery (patients should turn to CF(Preop)® for a presurgery drink that’s safe and effective to drink in the hours before surgery).
