The body’s nutritional demands increase after surgery:

  • When the body enters a higher metabolic state, it requires more energy.
  • Muscles can become smaller as a result of trauma or inactivity, extending recovery.
  • The stress and the trauma of surgery can weaken your immune system.
  • Wound infection has a higher chance of occurring with malnutrition.
  • Chronic inflammation impedes healing and restoration of mobility.
  • The physiological stress of surgery can increase fatigue.

Nutritional deficiencies can delay the natural healing process, putting patients at risk of infection and prolonging recovery times. According to recent medical studies, people who are nutritionally well-nourished before and after surgery will recover faster and have better long-term results. Unfortunately, most Americans are overfed and undernourished, implying that they are not nutritionally optimized for surgery and face an increased chance of postoperative complications.

MEND: Benefits of Pre and Post-Op Nutrition

We strongly believe in the benefits of using MEND products for our patients’ post-operative recovery. The combination of scientific research and natural ingredients in their products helps bridge the nutritional gap to optimize healing outcomes.

Mend 1

MEND Joint Replacement is a supplement that has been proven to address muscle atrophy and weakness in patients undergoing total joint replacement, ACL surgery, or knee arthroscopy. In three double-blind placebo-controlled randomized trials, MEND Joint Replacement had the following results:

  • Stopping Muscle Atrophy: 40% more muscle preservation during recovery
  • Return of Function: Compared to the placebo group, those who took MEND saw a significant improvement in their ability to return to normal function.
  • Inflammation: Post-operative inflammation levels significantly improved when compared to those who only received the placebo medication.

Better healing, faster recovery & fewer complications†

mend Joint Replacement is a proprietary blend of essential amino acids (EAAs) that has been shown in multiple randomized clinical trials to help preserve muscle and enhance your return to function and mobil­ity.

Additional research on EAAs has shown enhanced wound healing and fewer com­plications in other procedures.
