Vis is a medical grade nutritional powerhouse formulated by a practicing physician and nutrigenomics expert to prepare the body for surgery. Vis rises above typical supplements by containing only ingredients that will boost the body’s own protective and healing mechanisms counteracting the body’s powerful stress response as it goes into surgery. Vis may improve a patient’s chance of a positive outcome after surgery.
Vis has no artificial flavors, colors or added sugars. It is made with pure, clean, high quality ingredients that comprehensively support the body during the perioperative process. By doing so the risk of infection is lowered, blood sugar levels are kept within therapeutic range and the microbiome is protected ,leading to fewer complications, shorter hospital stays and fewer readmissions.
When the human body faces a major trauma such as a car crash or surgical event it creates a stress response. This stress response causes a cascade of biochemical and metabolic events that deplete specific vital nutrients and sequester others. In doing so the body is put at risk for infection due to tissue oxidation and degeneration. The most common complication is a surgical site infection. A surgical site infection increases the risk of death by 42%. Furthermore, if a diabetic has a surgical site infection they are five times more likely to die following surgery. Providing the body with critical nutrients during the perioperative time helps the body manage the stress response and decrease chances of poor outcomes.
By taking Vis just twice prior to surgery, patients may realize the positive outcomes of supporting their body at biochemical and metabolic levels for what may be one of the most important days of their lives.
A patient who takes Vis prior to surgery may have
-Less preoperative anxiety
-Reduced postoperative hyperglycemia
-Reduced postoperative gastric distress
-Shorter hospital stays
-Increased wound healing
-Lower risk of mortality
Blood Sugar Maintenance
Utilizing a non-corn complex carbohydrate base Vis helps protect the invaluable process of helping the body maintain therapeutic blood sugar levels crucial for returning quickly to homeostasis allowing it to be effective for diabetic, insulin resistant and non-diabetic patients.
Tissue degradation and oxidation from the stress response are the forerunners of infection and a natural implication of surgery. Utilizing Vis prior to surgery will front load critical antioxidants and vital nutrients helping the body to replenish those that are expended quickly when surgery starts or those that are unavailable due to sequestration.
Vis is also hypo-allergenic reducing the risk of subjecting patient to even more stress due to a potential allergic reaction. Corn ranks in the top eight food allergens affecting up to 6% of the population. Vis is corn-free including the corn derivative maltodextrin.
Formulated specifically for surgery
1-Gastric clearance is achieved prior to start of surgery reducing risk of pulmonary aspiration
2-No hard to digest ingredients are included such as protein or fat
3-Ingredients are titrated to therapeutically studied levels for maximum benefit
4-Vis meets the preoperative fasting guidelines set forth by the American Society of Anesthesiologist’s and the European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism (ESPEN).
Vis arrives in two pre-measured pouches of pleasant tasting powder. Each pouch is mixed in 8 ounces of water or juice to dissolve. One pouch just prior to bedtime the evening before surgery and the second 2 hours prior to surgery the next morning. Taste is mild and pleasant with a low volume increasing patient compliance.
A twelve hour fast prior to surgery was once the golden rule. It is now a thing of the past. Depriving the body of essential nutrients just prior to surgery actually puts the patient at risk for worse outcomes. This outdated process often results in anxiety, dehydration, post operative nausea and vomiting, and other complications that could have been prevented such as UTI’s, pneumonia and surgical site infections.
