Arginine and omega-3 fatty acids, glutamine, nucleotides, beta-carotene and branched-chain amino acids are referred to as immune-enhancing nutrients. The term "immunonutrition" has been based on the concept that malnutrition impairs immune function. Immune function is depressed in critically ill patients in response to stress, trauma & sepsis. Patients with compromised immune function require specific nutrients in the form of immuno nutrition for rapid recover.
