Regenerin™ Surgical Support Program
Pre- and Post-Op Nutritional Supplements for Optimal Healing
What is Regenerin?
Regenerin is a nutritional support program created specifically for patients scheduled for a surgical procedure. Prior to surgery, a combination of vitamins and minerals are taken for 7 days to build up reserves needed for tissue healing. After surgery, specific amino acids, enzymes, and fatty acids that assist healing and promote recovery are added to the program and continued for 30 days.
What does Regenerin contain?
The Regenerin Pre-Operative formula provides a broad array of essential vitamins, minerals, and trace elements in readily absorbable, well-tolerated forms. The Regenerin Post-Operative formula contains a higher potency mixture of essential vitamins, minerals, and trace elements along with L-arginine to promote healthy tissue formation, bromelain and other enzymes to help calm inflammation, omega-3 fatty acids to assist immune responses; and selected antioxidants such as L-glutathione and quercetin to protect against free radical damage.
How do patients distinguish between the Pre-Operative and Post-Operative nutrients?
Regenerin nutrients are supplied in convenient cellophane packets that are clearly imprinted with the name Regenerin Pre-Operative and Regenerin Post-Operative. The packets are packaged together in a single box separated by a divider. An instruction card is also provided.
Will patients be confused about which packet to take after surgery?
No, since all 7 Pre-Operative packets are taken prior to surgery, the Post-Operative packets will be the only ones remaining in the box after surgery.
What if the patient schedules surgery within less than 7 days?
The Pre-Operative formula is designed so that patients eager to proceed with surgery may safely take up to two packets daily if needed for fewer than 7 days.
When can patients begin taking the Post-Operative formula?
The Post-Operative formula can be started as soon as after 24 hours post-surgery. If patients are unable to begin taking the formula for several days, they should begin as soon as they are comfortable swallowing the pills.
Is vitamin E safe for surgery patients to take?
The often-repeated caution about avoiding vitamin E supplements before surgery is an unfortunate misinterpretation of the published literature. Although vitamin E has been presumed to prolong coagulation times because it can inhibit platelet reactivity, this only occurs in amounts greater than 400 I.U. per day. The amount of vitamin E contained in Regenerin Pre-Operative is only 150 I.U. and presents no risk to surgical patients, and in fact will help build crucial antioxidant reserves.
Can patients also take homeopathic Arnica Montana (SinEcch)?
Yes, the nutritional regimen supplied by Regenerin is compatible with taking Arnica Montana (SinEcch).
What information is available to explain the regimen to patients?
In addition to the complete dosage instructions and product description provided on the box, informative patient brochures are available in Dr. Revis' office.
How do I get started using the Regenerin program?
Simply call or visit our office to begin the program.
How much does the program cost?
$125 for the entire perioperative program (preoperative and post-operative formulae)
Should patients continue to take supplements after they complete Regenerin?
Healing continues to occur for several months post-surgery. Thus, ensuring adequate nutrition is advisable. For maximum, ongoing promotion of health, a well-balanced daily vitamin is recommended, such as the Regenerin Daily Dietary Supplement Program.
Details of the Program
Regenerin Surgical Support is an intensive, two-step nutraceutical regimen recommended to assist patient recovery after a surgical procedure. Regenerin Pre-Operative nutrient supplement packets are used prior to surgery to build nutritional reserves and prepare the body for surgery. Regenerin Post-Operative nutrient supplement packets are used after surgery to enhance the body’s natural healing process and support immune responsiveness, thus helping to speed recovery and promote proper tissue repair.
Poor nutritional status is associated with slower post-surgical healing and increased complications. Higher risk for infection, prolonged swelling, excessive scarring, and unstable collagen formation can result when cells are not adequately nourished. Micronutrients provided by Regenerin augment tissue reserves to protect cells against oxidative damage, enhance collagen synthesis, regulate inflammatory responses, and encourage repair of the body’s DNA and affected tissues. Regenerin Pre-Operative is intended for use 7 days prior to surgery followed by Regenerin Post-Operative for 30 days after surgery to help ensure a more successful surgical outcome. Regenerin is specifically formulated to avoid certain nutrients contraindicated before surgery and to include nutrients that can be safely taken after surgery. It is appropriate for both men and women of all ages.
Each Regenerin box contains:
Pre-Operative Formula, 7 packets per box, containing 3 tablets and 1 capsule per packet; and Post-Operative Formula, 60 packets per box, containing 3 tablets and 3 capsules per packet. Includes small travel bag for holding several packets when away from home.
CONTAINS CRUCIAL HEALING ACTIVATORS:
Pre-Operative Formula: Begin one week before surgery. Take the entire contents of one packet daily with a meal. The last packet should be consumed the day before surgery.
Post-Operative Formula: Begin the day after surgery. Take the entire contents of one packet twice daily with meals. Continue taking 2 packets daily for a full 30 days.
Each Pre-Operative Packet Contains:
Compared to common, over-the-counter multivitamin products delivered in one tablet daily, VitaPrime offers enhanced antioxidant protection, broader trace element nutrition, and augmented B-vitamin support. This core foundation of essential nutrients thus provides an extra measure of nutritional protection that can be recommended for daily use. A clear, water-soluble cellulose coating protects the stability of the nutritional ingredients and makes the tablets easy to swallow. Each batch is tested using USP protocols to ensure tablet disintegration time of 45 minutes or less to help maximize nutrient bioavailability.
A patented process completely bonds zinc to the amino acid glycine, forming zinc glycinate, a well-absorbed form of this essential mineral. Supplies 20 mg elemental zinc per tablet as zinc amino acid chelate.
Ester-C is a non-acidic form of vitamin C created by a unique process resulting in a patented mixture of calcium ascorbate and vitamin C metabolites. A combination of different bioflavonoids complements the action of the Ester-C calcium ascorbate in this formula.
Each Post-Operative Packet Contains:
Quercetin-Bromelain Forté™ provides a mixture of proteolytic enzymes and specific bioflavonoids that help regulate the immune response during inflammation as may occur during exposure to allergenic substances or irritants. Quercetin is a potent bioflavonoid compound that protects cells and tissues against free radical damage. Bromelain, papain, and pancreatin provide a mixture of protein-specific and other enzymes that help ensure proper breakdown of protein molecules that may otherwise cause tissue irritation and allergic responses.
Marine Fish Oil
Omega-3 EPA and DHA fatty acids found in cold water marine fish support many physiological processes related to immune function, regulation of inflammation, lipoprotein metabolism, and brain function. Our fish oil concentrate is molecularly distilled to heavy metals, pesticides, PCB’s, and other contaminants. Our specifications are in full compliance with voluntary industry guidelines. The milligrams of EPA and DHA as labeled are based on the actual content per gram of oil in the capsule, not as a portion of the omega-3 content only which would result in a higher value. Thus, our calculation reflects the true “elemental” EPA/DHA content. Addition of mixed vitamin E tocopherols maintains oil freshness by retarding oxidation of lipid contents. Cholesterol free.
Glutathiol™ provides three natural sulfur-containing compounds important to the body's antioxidant defense mechanisms. N-acetyl-L-cysteine is a valuable precursor for intracellular glutathione production. L-glutathione, a tripeptide containing L-cysteine, L-glutamic acid, and glycine, provides extracellular antioxidant action. The amino acid taurine is a cell membrane stabilizer found in high amounts in heart, skeletal muscle, brain, and retina.
Increased demands for arginine, a conditionally-essential amino acid can occur during physical stress or illness. Arginine supports growth hormone metabolism, tissue repair, energy metabolism, and nitric oxide synthesis. Nitric oxide plays important roles in cardiovascular, immune, and nervous system functions and is produced in all tissues of the body. L-arginine in its stable hydrochloride form is provided in vegetarian capsules.
This moderate potency multiple is provided in just two tablets daily for patients who cannot or are reluctant to take the recommended six daily tablets or capsules of our more comprehensive MultiThera™ multiple vitamin/mineral formulas. VitaPrime uses similar nutrient sources as MultiThera formulas to maintain efficient bioavailability, but contains reduced amounts of calcium and magnesium and several other nutrients. Compared to common, over-the-counter multivitamin products delivered in one tablet daily, VitaPrime offers enhanced antioxidant protection, broader trace element nutrition, and augmented B-vitamin support. This core foundation of essential nutrients thus provides an extra measure of nutritional protection that can be recommended for daily use. A clear, water-soluble cellulose coating protects the stability of the nutritional ingredients and makes the tablets easy to swallow. Each batch is tested using USP protocols to ensure tablet disintegration time of 45 minutes or less to help maximize nutrient bioavailability.
