Getting enough nutrients is especially important when bone health is at risk, according to HealthinAging.org
. Ensure nutritionals are supplements you can have with or between meals and, under a doctor's guidance, can be used temporarily as the sole nutrition source. Ensure drinks and snacks provide both calories and essential nutrients with many formulas that focus on specific goals, such as helping to rebuild muscle or strengthen bones. Drinks include high-calorie and high-protein blends as well as fat free options for better nutrition without weight gain. Choices include shakes in popular flavors like chocolate and vanilla as well as fruit-flavored drinks. There's also a vanilla powder you can mix as desired and ready-to-eat puddings in vanilla, butterscotch, and chocolate.
Ensure supplements include the following formulas: Ensure Original
packs 9 grams of protein and 220 calories in every 8-ounce serving in flavors like coffee latte, butter pecan, and strawberries and cream along with chocolate and vanilla. Ensure Original Therapeutic Nutrition
