Take a Powerful Step With Nutrition
A pressure ulcer is an injury to the skin and/or underlying tissue, as a result of pressure, or pressure in combination with shear and/or friction. A person having one or more of these factors is at risk for pressure-ulcer formation or progression:
- Bed- or chair-bound (immobility)
- Difficulty swallowing or chewing
- Poor nutrition (weight loss, muscle loss)
- Poor circulation
- Stool and/or urinary incontinence
- Poor skin condition
- History of pressure ulcers
- Advanced age
Juven is a therapeutic nutrition drink mix that is clinically1 shown to help build lean body mass and support tissue repair
Healing from an injury or surgery is complex; many factors, including nutritional status, can affect outcomes. A balanced diet is essential for building tissue, but sometimes more is needed. This is when Juven can help.
Juven contains a unique blend of three key ingredients: Revigor™ (source of HMB), arginine, and glutamine. And it has been clinically shown to build lean body mass and support tissue repair. Building lean body mass may help you heal and resume normal daily activities.
Helps support tissue building for healing
For people with pressure ulcers, getting your body to make collagen is an important step in healing. Collagen is a major component of skin and other tissue, and forming it is an important part of your body's repair process.
Juven is clinically shown to improve hydroxyproline, a marker of collagen synthesis*.2 Collagen is a building block to promote tissue repair of the skin after injury and surgery.
You can simply mix Juven with water, or mix it with your favorite foods and beverages.
