What Can Nutrition Shakes Do For You?

Vitamin B12 and Folate

It’s no secret to anybody of any health profile that the brain is one of the most important parts of the body. The human brain is one of the most active and, reasonably, metabolically burdensome organs in the body. It accounts for about 20% of oxygen consumption in the human body, and it is important that our diets reflect the emphasis the brain has on our daily function. Vitamins B12 and folate are linked to brain health. Diabetic medication regimens, such as Metformin (a type 2 diabetes treatment), have been shown to put patients at risk for vitamin B12 deficiency. Speak to your doctor about the various risks associated with your lifestyle. With Ensure, 25% of the daily value of vitamin B12 and folate are packed into each 8oz bottle!

NutriVigor

Amongst the many necessary vitamins and nutrients packed into Ensure drinks, Ensure Enlive contains an amino acid metabolite HMB and protein called NutriVigor. NutriVigor aids in muscle and strength development to combat muscle atrophy and aid a lifestyle with exercise. If you are committed to personal health, staying active is only part of the battle. Packing your diet with a variety of nutrients to ensure that your body is receiving adequate portions of what is necessary to be at peak function is arguably just as important.

Prebiotics

Keeping your digestive system happy and complication-free is an important undertaking when living with diabetes. Taking prebiotics is a good way to maintain a good balance of bacteria and a healthy gastrointestinal tract. Bacteria–while a stigmatized word when it comes to health–are absolutely essential in your gut for digestion. Prebiotics stimulate growth of these healthy bacteria in your gut. Prebiotics have also been linked to healthy calcium absorption. Calcium absorption is one of the main benefits of vitamin D, which is why growing up you may have been told by parents and doctors that drinking milk is good for your teeth and bones!
