IMMUNEX® Plus

Specialized Formula for the Dietary Management of Metabolically Stressed Patients

IMMUNEX® Plus is a semi-elemental formula, containing arginine, glutamine and branched-chain amino acids. Immunex® Plus also contains nucleotides, Omega-3 and antioxidants, designed for metabolically-stressed patients.

  • Conveniently provides antioxidants and immunomodulating nutrients such as Glutamine, Arginine, Nucleotides, and Omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Supplemented with 125 g/liter of Glutamine, which helps regenerate intestinal integrity, improving nutrient absorption and strengthening the immune system.
  • Includes Arginine, an important immunomodulator, precursor of collagen and anabolic hormones, which stimulates the immune system, promotes healing and promotes a positive Nitrogen Balance (NB).
  • Supplemented with Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) that improves Nitrogen Balance (NB) and promote protein synthesis.
  • High protein formula with Lactalbumin, a protein that is easily absorbed and has high nitrogen bioavailability.
  • No added sugar, contains complex carbohydrates. 100% of the Carbohydrate content (Maltodextrin) is slowly absorbed for a lower risk of hyperglycemia and osmotic overload.
  • Contains vitamins and minerals (B complex and antioxidants), to support cellular protection and tissue synthesis.
