Welcome to Calwood Nutritionals,
...nutrition rooted in science.
The Nutramine and Nutrasentials lines of products are tailored to meet the nutritional needs of kidney patients and those with early signs of kidney disease. Research shows protein restriction slows the progression of kidney failure. Essential amino acid supplemenation to a low protein diet is especially effective in maintaining nutritional status.
Our products are USP grade essential amino acids in a balanced formula. (What does this mean?) They do not contain proteins, peptides, or non-essential amino acids. The recommended serving size (3.5g of amino acids per meal) is based on results from clinical trials for kidney dialysis at Johns Hopkins University.
The essential amino acids are anabolic (cause muscle production) and do not have catabolic activity (do not break down muscle). They are a clean source of nutrition and do not form urea when ingested.
Nutramine is an unflavored and unsweetened powder which contains fiber. To prepare Nutramine, you must use a handblender or a mixer, or it may be incorporated into recipes. We include examples of such recipes with every first order of Nutramine. Nutramine is a food product and should not be used as a sole source of nutrition.
Nutramine AminoBites are a chewy stick formulation of the essential amino acids. Each serving is individually packaged and they are very convenient to eat on-the-go. Nutramine AminoBites contain fiber and come in apple, banana, chocolate, mango, peach, and pineapple flavors.
