Why Nutrifuel?

Nutrifuel®Nutrition is a company created by a doctor with his patients in mind. We understand the stresses that surgery, illness, and even life cause on our bodies so we created products to help support your recovery! All of our supplements are professional grade and have been manufactured in an FDA-registered facility with GMP that exceeds the standards set by the FDA. We also developed the highest quality nutritional bars using organic, non-GMO, and gluten-free ingredients to fuel a patient’s recovery.

 

Most people want to get back on their feet quickly after surgery, and our products also provide essential nutrition for healing after surgery as well. It is essential to follow your doctor’s instructions after surgery, but continuing with proper nutrition after surgery is vital for a quick recovery.

 

Nutrifuel®Nutrition has created a line of products to help with pre and post-surgery nutrition. In addition to helping with your diet before and after surgery, our products can help with your overall health as well.

 

Unlike the makers of many nutritional supplements, Nutrifuel® was created by an Orthopaedic surgeon with patients in mind.

 

We also offer several nutritional supplements that are beneficial for not just surgery patients, but elite athletes and other health-conscious people. Our low-calorie protein powder comes in two great tasting flavors that provide excellent nutrition at only 90 calories. Our Nutrifuel®nutrition bars are made of whole ingredients that follow the Mediterranean and Zone diets supplying the right mix of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.

 

All of the supplements developed at Nutrifuel®Nutrition are professional grade. Each of our nutritional products are manufactured in an FDA-registered facility with GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) that exceeds the standards set by the FDA. Our nutritional bars also meet the highest standards of quality as they have been developed using non-GMO, organic, and gluten-free ingredients, all specifically designed to help fuel a patient’s recovery or athlete’s performance.

Our Mission

Our Mission at Nutrifuel® is to help people affected by the Standard American Diet and Lifestyle (“SADL”) get healthy and stay healthy. As a company, we are young in our development but mature in our belief that with personal ownership and the right support any individual can achieve and maintain excellent health and wellness.
