Ensure Enlive Advanced Nutrition Shake is Abbott's most advanced nutritional product for adults. It's an all-inclusive nutritious drink that's high in protein to rebuild lean body mass and increase energy and strength to combat illness or assist with patient recovery after surgery or an injury. Protein is added with an important amino acid derivative beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB) shown to improve muscle recovery. In addition, Ensure Enlive Advanced Nutrition Shake uses a plant-based omega-3 to support heart-health, antioxidants to support a healthy immune system, and prebiotic fiber with important good bacteria for a healthy and high functioning digestive tract. For some seniors, eating enough food to maintain muscle mass and proper body weight can become a challenge. Insufficient nutrients and low calorie intake can degrade health and lead to morbidity. Numerous medical studies find that good nutrition and supplementation can contribute to healthier outcomes.
Nutritional supplements and diet plans should be carefully prescribed in low?BMI individuals to limit variability in total energy provided and thus prevent lower?than?normal intake. Dietary quality is difficult to ensure when overall energy intake is low. The gap between actual nutrient consumption common among older adults and the recommended intakes from diets associated with health promotion and prevention of chronic diseases is large.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a progressive degenerative condition of the retina, is the leading cause of legal blindness among older Americans. In the United States, 7 million individuals older than 40 years are diagnosed with early AMD and 1.75 million have advanced stages.1With increasing longevity, and with the projected doubling of the population aged 65 years and older by 2020, almost 3 million people will have AMD unless risk for the condition is lowered with changes in diet, lifestyle, and medical treatments. This study provides evidence that vitamin D may protect against AMD. Additional studies are needed to confirm these findings. The likelihood of having depression in persons with vitamin D deficiency is significantly higher compared to those with vitamin D sufficiency. Early diagnosis and intervention are paramount because coexistence of vitamin D deficiency and depression has serious negative consequences on health.
Maintaining strong bones is important with aging and Enlive Shakes contain 120 percent of daily value of vitamin D and 50 percent of daily value of calcium in every serving. To keep bodies running in tip-top-shape 82.5 mg of Choline is in each serving. It's part of the B-complex family of vitamins shown to be helpful to the nervous system. It lowers cholesterol and decreases inflammation to control asthma and even helps prevent cancer.
In other medical research "the findings indicate that vitamin and mineral supplementation of the diet of Linxian adults, particularly with the combination of beta carotene, vitamin E, and selenium, may effect a reduction in cancer risk in this population. Fiber is another important supplementation. Higher fiber ntake is associated with lower mortality, particularly from circulatory, digestive, and non-CVD noncancer inflammatory diseases. Our results support current recommendations of high dietary fiber intake for health maintenance.
