The Game-Changing Impact of Nutrition in Joint Replacement: Revolutionizing Pre and Postoperative Nutrition with MEND

Nutritional supplementation can be a powerful tool in helping achieve successful outcomes in joint replacement. Just eating a healthy diet alone may not fully meet increased nutrient needs for joint replacement surgery. Let’s explore how to harness the power of nutrition to help you heal faster and improve joint function.


MEND Nutritional supplementation is different from other nutritional supplements because it is specifically designed for joint replacement patients and has been tested in multiple randomized clinical trials.1 It is also safe, natural, and free of artificial ingredients, gluten, soy, and GMOs.

PREOPERATIVE NUTRITION: Getting Your Body Ready for Surgery

MEND helps the body get ready for joint replacement by providing extra EAAs (essential amino acids) that can boost the body's ability to preserve muscle mass, reduce muscle loss, and improve functional mobility. Patients can prevent or minimize muscle loss and enhance their recovery outcomes by taking MEND nutritional supplementation before surgery.


Muscle loss is a common problem after joint replacement surgery, especially in older adults, and it can affect the recovery and quality of life for patients. MEND helps your body recover from surgery by providing nutrients that support your bone health, muscle repair, and tissue regeneration.

How do you take MEND?

You can mix one scoop of the powder with 8 ounces of water, juice, or your favorite smoothie. You can also add MEND to foods like yogurt, oatmeal, or pudding. Take MEND twice a day, in the morning and in the evening, for at least two weeks before and after your surgery.

Long-Term Benefits

MEND's approach to nutrition extends its benefits into the long term. The optimized tissue regeneration and reduced risk of complications ensure patients can enjoy improved joint function and longevity, ensuring a higher quality of life for years to come.

The #1 question we get from our patients is “What can I do to enhance my recovery from joint replacement surgery?” We tell them Mend. Elevate your healing, minimize discomfort, and enhance joint function before and after your joint replacement with nutrition.
