The entire process of surgery is extremely physically demanding, and being unprepared for it can cause serious problems. Mortality rates have been observed to be higher in patients who undergo surgery malnourished, and wound healing can take much longer if the body doesn’t have what it needs to properly heal once the surgery is complete. Forté Pre-Op helps to prepare your body for surgery with the right nutrients in preparation for the upcoming physiological and metabolic stress. Forté Post-Op provides a blend of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and trace elements that have been shown to support immune system function, tissue repair and wound healing, which may help to enhance recovery.
Forte bad flavor but good results
I haven't started on the pre surgery protocol yet. Last time I took it before the total knee surgery 18 months ago, was not pleasant. I had to coat my mouth with peanut butter and plug my nose to get the drink down. Pre surgery was worse than post surgery BUT I did heal faster and felt healthier. If Dr Kimball didn't highly recommend this product, I would not take it before surgery.
No customer service
I ordered my products through my doctors office and wasn’t even given flavor options. When my products arrived, I had receive one flavor that I was content with (orange) for my pre-surgery, but my post surgery flavor is intolerable to me. It is Chocolate Malt. I love chocolate but I hate malt. My problem with Forte is that when I emailed them about switching it out for a different flavor, I have gotten zero response. That was weeks ago when I sent the email.
An easier way to approach surgery - pre & post surgery
First off- order in advance of scheduled surgery so time won’t be an issue ( start 1 week prior - 30 days post supplements) Easy to mix pre elements- better to use a blender on post. Excellent benefits, easier on the system with high fiber diet, just wish there was at least two flavors on post elements- as the same flavor shake fir 30 days gets humdrum - but it’s worth it. Thanks for your fine products ! ❤️
PreOp and PostOp products
The PreOp orange flavor and residue that wouldn’t dissolve was hard to get down, I was mixed one half packet with squirt and then I could stand to drink it. PostOp also has residue that won’t dissolve. Again I use half a packet in order to get it down. There is still grit left in the bottom.

Terrible. They taste horrible and the packaging is a definite over-****. It must have cost more than vitamins. And it didn’t make taste any better.
I have not taken the supplements yet
Pre op vitamins
The pre op Forté vitamins made my surgery a breeze! Honestly I have never felt better than the two weeks prior to surgery, while taking the pre op vitamins. They gave me needed energy and an overall sense of well being. I truly believe it’s why my recovery went so well. Thank you!
Powder shake supplement
I didn’t use as I was feeling nauseous. It arrived too late to use the pre op package. I don’t like chocolate and didn’t know that’s what I was getting. I believed I was getting a pill supplement pack.
Pre-op, post-op, and fracture.
Product was very good, easy to take and flavor was good.
Everything is great
My overall experience is very good. I have been taking the product for 1 week and I really like it. I mix it with almond milk or almond coconut milk. I assume that is ok to do. I think it has a good taste. I appreciate the good office staff I have talked to. I am looking forward to having a good knee replacement next Wednesday and then I will start taking the Post Op. pouches. Thanks for your helpl
I tore the meniscus in my right knee back in April while doing a run. I could still ride my bike but running was out of the question. I limped through the summer and all the travels and activities with the bum knee. I decided to have the surgery to repair the injury in late August. I am moderately active, I enjoy running and cycling and hiking and camping so I wanted to get back to these activities ASAP. I learned about Forte on a flight from Salt Lake to New Orleans when I sat next to a Forte employee. He sold me on the Pre-op/Post-op bundle and 2 weeks before the surgery I started the pre-op regiment. The surgery was on a Thursday, and I started the post-op packets on Friday. By Monday I was done with the crutches. 10 days later did an easy 20 mile bike ride. 14 days after surgery I had the follow-up with the surgeon and he was truly amazed at my progress. Have ridden 25-30 miles each Saturday, restarted yoga and now I'm gradually getting back to running. Did I say I am 57? These products are amazing! I am now taking the daily amino/joint regiment. I HIGHLY recommend this bundle for anyone getting any type of orthopedic procedure.
Fast order processing. I even firgot a discount code and they refunded me the difference right away. Answered my emails fast. Wonderful company to deal with.
It was great! So easy
