IMPACT® Formulas: An Evidence-Based Choice
Proper oral supplement and tube feeding formula selection is very important for surgical and critically ill patients. Certain risks associated with major elective surgery or trauma may be reduced by modifying specific nutrients in the diet. IMPACT® formulas have been studied in a variety of surgical, critically ill and trauma patients. The results of more than 40 positive-outcome studies, including several meta-analyses, demonstrate that early feeding of IMPACT® formulas improves patient outcomes by providing a blend of key nutrients – arginine, dietary nucleotides, and omega-3 fatty acids – shown to effectively modulate the immune system and help improve outcomes in a variety of surgical patient populations.
IMPACT® formulas have more Level 1 evidence, in more patients, with more positive outcomes than any other immunonutrition formula.
