Ingredients

Filtered Water, Maltodextrin, L-Citrulline, Natural Flavors, Sodium Citrate, Citric Acid, Malic Acid, Monopotassium Phosphate, Stevia Rebaudiana, Vitamin A Palmitate, Zinc Sulfate, Sodium Selenite.

Specifically Formulated for Surgical Patients

CFpreop® is a carb drink that contains the ideal formulation and ingredients needed to ensure a properly nourished and hydrated body prior to surgery, including:

Carbohydrates

CFpreop® uses maltodextrin, an easily digested complex carbohydrate that helps to replenish glycogen depleted by catabolism related to fasting and surgery. Studies have shown that the intake of a complext carb drink two hours prior to surgery was safe because it did not increase residual gastric volume (RGV) or acidity, but improved patients’ well-being and comfort.

Electrolytes

CFpreop® contains sodium and potassium to replenish the body’s fluid and electrolyte levels following the dehydration caused by fasting.

Vitamin A

Acts as an antioxidant and supports the function and health of epithelial tissue.

Selenium

A trace mineral that acts as an antioxidant and contributes to healthy immune function. When combined with Zinc, Selenium may reduce the risk of infections.

Zinc

A trace mineral, essential for protein synthesis, Zinc plays a well-documented role in wound healing.

L-citrulline

An amino acid widely used to reduce fatigue and improve endurance in athletic performances, L-citrulline has a much more profound role in the enhancement of perioperative outcomes: it improves circulation by increasing nitric oxide levels and boosts the immune system through nourishment of bowel enterocytes and efficient conversion of itself to plasma L-arginine
