PROVO, Utah, May 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Forté Elements, LLC (Forté) is excited to announce the launch of its Mediceutical line of products, a line of clinical use nutritional products that address the nutritional needs of recovery for a variety of clinical conditions. Founded in 2013, Forté spent more than two years researching and developing its products.
Kirt Kimball M.D., an orthopedic surgeon and a founder of and Chief Medical Officer for Forté, describes "After years of treating patients under intense physical demands, especially athletes, I began an intensive research effort to determine if and what nutritional supplements could improve recovery outcomes. My research led to the creation of a line of products rooted in medical and nutritional science."
Forté flagship products include Forté Pre-Op™ and Forté Post-Op™. This combination of products pre-load the body with safe, essential nutrients prior to surgery and essential vitamins, minerals, protein, and amino acids that support recovery from the trauma of surgery.
Kimball further explains "It is a common practice for a surgeon to have patients stop taking any nutritional supplements prior to surgery, because there are real risks with blood thinning and other potential complications in a surgical setting. We created Forté Pre-Op so physicians can recommend a product, developed by a surgeon, that is safe and pre-loads the patient with key nutrients essential for optimal healing."
Forté products are Mediceutical supplements, an emerging category of products that adhere to a specific set of standards. Unlike nutraceuticals, herbal remedies, or other dietary supplements, a Mediceutical is a product that voluntary adheres to the following criteria:
- Formulated to support a specific health condition or situation
- Contains only non-synthetic, pharmaceutical-grade ingredients that are Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS)
- Contains elements that have been validated by clinical research for the specific health condition or situation, as published in peer-reviewed journals
- Conforms to pharmaceutical-grade dosage standards for the specific health condition or situation
- Produced in FDA-compliant manufacturing facilities using pharmaceutical-grade manufacturing practices
- Certificate of Analysis made available confirming that product ingredients meet the Mediceutical standard and are as listed on the product label
By adhering to the above criteria, consumers can be assured the product they receive is safe and effective for the need or condition they are trying to support.
Forté Elements, LLC (www.forteelements.com), provides products that use clinical nutrition in specific formulations to repair, recover, and revitalize the human body during periods of illness, medical support, or unusual stress. As an organization, Forté fills the gap between traditional pharmaceuticals and dietary supplements with a new category of products the company calls Mediceuticals and are thereby based on scientific research, pharmaceutical grade dosage and ingredient standards, and FDA-approved manufacturing processes.
