Zetpil™ Complete Protein Amino Acid Suppository
- Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and this product can address and help reverse protein deficiencies and malnutrition; increases muscle protein synthesis and muscle mass.
- Muscle wasting becomes problematic in patients with cancer, heart failure, post-weight loss surgical procedures, or those suffering from forced inactivity or nutrient-deprived conditions.
- Revolutionary product for patients with malabsorption issues, chronic health issues or dietary restrictions, or those unable to meet nutritional needs due to nausea or an inability to take oral nutrients/supplements (ie: gastric bypass patients).
Zetpil™ Suppository Advantage
Zetpil™ delivers nutrition via the rectum with the use of suppositories that have a unique, all- natural formulated base that has revolutionized not only this mode of delivery, but also the ability to obtain nutrients in a far more efficacious method. These suppositories are a result of combining natural ingredients with a non-irritating, rapid melting (5-6 minutes), readily absorbable (superior retention), antioxidant base material (free radical scavenging ability) and delivers the nutrients directly into the bloodstream in less than 20 minutes in a highly effective manner. Oral supplements are exposed to the hazards of stomach acid, digestive enzymes, food-related breakdown, first pass metabolism, and other bioavailability issues in the gastro-intestinal system.
Additionally, many raw materials simply have a very low bioavailability, and only achieve around 10% or less (commonly <1%) absorption rates, even if the patient is in optimal health condition. Compromised health, age, or certain conditions that result in an inability to take oral nutrients often preclude these patient populations from obtaining the necessary nutrition to stay healthy which often exacerbates chronic health issues.
Zetpil™ suppositories are a NOW solution to delivering the necessary nutrients to patients, on a daily basis, that is both easy, comfortable and cost effective. The safety and noticeable effectiveness of these products will far outweigh any initial hesitation you have regarding this mode of delivery.
What are Amino Acids and why are they Important?
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are essential to maintain adequate muscle mass, energy and strength. Muscle has many vital functions, including temperature regulation, energy metabolism, amino acid reserves, immune function and response to injury.
Decreases in muscle mass (insufficient protein and amino acid levels) can be seen in patients of advanced age or any condition which limits oral food or supplement intake. This muscle wasting becomes problematic in patients with existing conditions such as cancer, heart failure, post-weight loss surgical procedures, or those suffering from forced inactivity or nutrient-deprived conditions. Muscle wasting also lowers your ability to respond to injury, decreases your immune response and overall quality of life.
Protein deficiency and malnutrition symptoms may include, but are not limited to:
diarrhea and/or constipation,
growth retardation in children.
Increasing essential amino acids has been clinically shown to dramatically increase muscle protein synthesis. The Zetpil™ Complete Amino Acid with Protein suppositories is a revolutionary product for patients with malabsorption issues, chronic health issues or dietary restrictions who have inadequate protein or nutrient intake. This product is also ideal for patients unable to meet nutritional needs due to nausea or an inability to take oral nutrients/supplements.
Who could Benefit from the Zetpil™ Amino Acid with Protein suppository?
**Note: The Zetpil™ formula does not include phenylalanine so individuals who must avoid phenylalanine (Phenylketonuria) are also able to benefit from this product.**
Athletes trying to improve performance;
The elderly who have substantial muscle mass loss due to normal aging as well as reduced physical activity;
Patients with malabsorption issues:
Gastric Bypass patients, a patient population proven to have sub-optimal nutrient absorption capabilities post-surgery;
Cancer patients experiencing cachexia (muscle wasting) as the result of both the disease process as well as a treatment-induced side effect. For these patients, this product may:
enhance overall nutritional status,
decrease risk of infections (and potential hospitalizations),
help prevent/reverse cachexia,
improve quality of life,
decrease fatigue, and
increase response to treatments.
Each Zetpil™ Complete Amino Acid Protein suppository contains a proprietary blend of the following Amino Acids: L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine, L-Lysine, L-Threonine, Acetyl-L-Tyrosine, L-Tryptophan and N-Acetyl-Cysteine.
Serving Size: 1 Suppository
Servings Per Container: 60
Dosage and Use: 2 to 3 per day, or as directed by a health care professional.
Suppository Base: The base is a proprietary combination of plant and fruit butters, vegetable acids, medium chain triglycerides, phospholipids, lecithin, vegetable starches, cellulose, oligosaccharides derivatives, polysaccharides and cycloamylose derivatives.
This product contains an extract from soybeans making it contraindicated in individuals with a known hypersensitivity to phospholipids, sesame seed oils or any of the listed ingredients.
If you choose to use this product as a rectal suppository, it is highly recommended you attempt to clear your bowels prior to inserting it to avoid premature evacuation. To facilitate insertion it is recommended you moisten the product by passing it under a stream of cool water or use a personal lubricant. When used as a suppository, this product requires 15-20 minutes retention to ensure the complete absorption of the bioactive ingredients. This suppository can be inserted in any position. Although not required, if inserted while lying on one’s side, consider remaining in the supine position for 1-3 minutes following insertion. (Always insert flat end of suppository first).
Although safe for children, this product should be kept out of the reach of children.
Do not use if the suppositories are open or damaged.
As with any nutrient if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, seek the advice of a health care provider before using this product.
Individuals that have chosen to take this product as part of a personal nutrient program have overwhelmingly chosen to utilize this product as a rectal suppository or as a vaginal pessary. However, this product can also be taken safely by mouth. If one chooses to take this product orally, then this product may be considered a dietary supplement in accordance with current FDA guidelines.
