Epigran Protein

Nutritional Aid for Wound Healing

Prevalence of malnutrition in hospital is predicted at 86%, nursing home at 67%.1
Individuals with malnutrition in combination with multiple comorbidities are at increased risk of developing a Pressure Injury.3
Poor nutrition is one of the reason that impede wound healing4
Well-nourished patients displayed greater improvement in healing rates than malnourished patients.2 Epigran Protein

Epigran Protein offers:

  Essential Protein in pea and oat form

  Micro Nutrient (Arginine, Glutamine, Leucine)

  Correct trace element Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Zinc, Copper, Selenium balance is pivotal for wound healing. 17 18

  Addition with Japan Oryza Bird’s Nest Extract

How to consume?

Mix 1 sachet of 30g Epigran Protein, dissolve in 200ml of room temperature water, shake well and consume.
