SurgiVite®

The Wound Supplement

Specially designed to promote healing of fresh surgical wounds

Timely and uncomplicated healing of surgical wounds is important for smooth recovery and restoration of function and quality of life following surgery.  A number of factors, including the nutritional status of patients affect rate of surgical wound healing.  About 40% of patients admitted to the hospital for surgery are malnourished, with a significant risk of delayed surgical wound healing and surgical wound infection.  The malnutrition includes not only protein and calorie deficiencies but also vitamin and mineral deficiency.  Deficiency in vitamin A, vitamin C, Zinc and Copper results in delayed surgical wound healing.

Adequately supplementing patients (especially undernourished or malnourished patients) with the right vitamins and minerals, in clinically tested doses has been shown to promote healing of surgical wounds.

SurgiVite® is a powder formulation of vitamins A, B, C, E, Zinc and Copper in clinically effective doses, designed for surgical wound healing.  SurgiVite® combines the wound healing properties of vitamins A, B, C, E, Zinc and Copper to promote healing of fresh surgical wounds.
