Medical Nutrition USA, Inc., today announced the introduction of a new Fiber-Stat(R) concentrated liquid fiber formula that includes prune juice concentrate.
Recommended for chronic irregularity, low fiber intake, and to support intestinal health, the new Fiber-Stat delivers a highly effective "triple action" combination of three active ingredients in a single, cost-effective and easy-to-take one-ounce dose.
"This unique combination of soluble fiber, prebiotic and prune juice concentrate is rich in antioxidants, provides 60% of the recommended daily value of fiber in each ounce, stimulates natural bowel regulation and promotes colon health," said Frank A. Newman, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
"Fiber-Stat was developed to address one of the most widespread and demanding challenges to maintaining patient health and comfort in long-term care and acute care institutions," Newman said. "New Fiber-Stat demonstrates the value of our ongoing investment in product development and our commitment to providing positive clinical outcomes through evidence-based research."
The new Fiber-Stat formulation replaces an earlier version of the product in Medical Nutrition USA's product line, which also includes the Pro-Stat(R) line of targeted modular protein formulas and UTI-Stat urinary tract cleansing complex.
According to the company, Fiber-Stat can be taken with any food or beverage, does not interfere with drug or nutrient absorption and can be administered via feeding tube. Fiber-Stat comes ready-to-use with no mixing or dissolving required.
