Medical nutrition

"Let food be medicine and medicine be food" 

Hippocrates (460-370 B.C.E.)


Medical (clinical) nutrition is an integral part of the treatment process aimed at supporting patients in faster recovery and improving prognosis. It consists in providing the patient with all the necessary nutrients (proteins, sugars, fats, minerals and vitamins), which he is not able to take in a natural way through specialized industrial diets.


Medical nutrition is the use of ready-made, appropriately balanced industrial diets for oral or gavage administration, as the only source of nutrition or as a supplement to the patient's diet. Used as a treatment support, it improves the patient's well-being, adds strength, supports wound healing and supports the body in fighting the disease.

Medical nutrition is recommended for patients with chronic diseases, oncological diseases, for patients before and after operations, after strokes, with difficult to heal wounds, bedsores, for elderly patients and for sick children.

Medical nutrition is divided into oral and tube feeding.

Medical nutrition is recommended while maintaining the patency of the upper gastrointestinal tract. It means the use of specialized preparations for intestinal nutrition in the form of tasty drinks, which in a small volume contain a lot of nutrients, thus supporting the maintenance of proper nutritional status and supporting the fight against the disease. Oral nutrition is most often recommended as a supplement to a natural diet, and to be properly performed, it should be carried out for at least 14 days, with a minimum dose of 2 additional meals in the form of an oral diet. It is used on the recommendation and under the supervision of a physician.

Oral diets

Diets for the probe

Tube feeding means the administration of specialized industrial diets directly into the gastrointestinal tract via artificial access. This may be a nasogastric, naso-enteric, gastrotomy, or jejunostomy tube. Nutrition through artificial access to the gastrointestinal tract can be carried out in boluses (disposable doses metered in a syringe) or by continuous infusion by gravity or with the use of a peristaltic pump.

Our products are intended for both oral and gavage administration.
