ABINTRA®

Specialized Nutrition for Wound Healing

Abintra® is a specialized nutritional supplement specifically formulated to provide patients with nutrients that will promote wound healing. Abintra® contains a combination of arginine, glutamine, whey protein and antioxidant vitamins and minerals in therapeutic amounts to promote tissue synthesis and wound healing.

  • 7 g of Arginine, collagen precursor that promotes wound healing (Ahujana 2007, De Luis 2007)
  • 7 g of Glutamine, which nourishes fast-replicating cells and stimulates protein synthesis (Schoemann 2007)
  • 5 g of high biological value whey protein, to help patients meet their increased protein requirements (Legendre 2008)
  • Vitamin A, which promotes fibroblast differentiation and collagen synthesis and reduces wound infections (De Luis 2007)
  • Vitamin C, essential co-factor in collagen synthesis and important antioxidant that protects the health of new cells and tissue (Tanaka 2007)
  • Vitamin E, which protects cells against free radicals and facilitates wound healing by improving the immune response (De Luis 2007, Gottschlich 2007)
  • Vitamin B12, which helps maintain adequate levels of red blood cells and hemoglobin, which is necessary for adequate wound oxygenation (Baumgartner 2007)
  • Copper, important co-factor in enzymes involved in collagen synthesis (Baumgartner 2007, De Luis 2007)
  • Selenium, antioxidant that protects the membranes of newly formed cells against lipid peroxidation (Baumgartner 2007)
  • Zinc, important component of metaloprotein co-enzymes that are essential in tissue repair and promotes cell proliferation and growth (Baumgartner 2007, National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel 2009, De Luis 2007)
