Help when nutrition is an uphill struggle

Sometimes we still do not manage to maintain or restore an optimal nutritional status, even when we make changes in our diet. Our daily intake lags behind what we need. It then makes sense to top up our intake of nutrients with suitable nutritional supplements.

At the same time our usual food intake should ideally not be disturbed or restricted. We need to take in additional nutrients to restore our nutrient balance. 

How can you gain weight?

When you have lost a lot of weight, gaining weight again is not that easy. To cover your extra nutritional needs to gain weight with everyday food alone can be very challenging. Oral nutritional supplements with high energy, protein and nutrient density could be of help.

Did you know?

Effective dose of supplementation in geriatrics: 400 kcal / day

With an additional calorie intake of 400 kcal, and an additional protein intake of 20g per day and with all the necessary nutrients, we can achieve an effective improvement in our nutritional status, a sustainable weight increase, and thus also an improved quality of life: In this way, we can ensure a balanced intake of energy, protein, minerals and vitamins

Nutritional supplements

Depending on your individual situation and nutritional requirements, your doctor, dietitian or nutritional adviser will recommend a nutritional supplement. These special formulas provide additional energy and nutrients like protein and vitamins, and thus close the gap between daily requirements and normal food intake.

Close the nutritional gap with ONS (Oral Nutrition Supplements)

ONS – (Oral Nutritional Supplements) – are designed to maintain an adequate nutrition. They are often high in energy, rich in protein and supply all the nutrients we require daily. ONS are used in addition to normal food if the normal diet is insufficient.

Scientifically-proven effectiveness

If there is an increased risk of inadequate nutrition, ONS can fill the gap with high energy and protein and many other essential nutrients. When used for a longer period, they demonstrably improve nutritional status. They are an effective solution for the dietary management of people with or at risk of nutritional deficiencies.

Products with different energy densities are available depending on individual requirements, to enable personalised nutrition management. Many flavour varieties and different presentations such as drinks or puddings allow individual choice, so that even with longer-term nutritional supplementation there is still variety.

  • Gain in muscle strength and mobility
  • Improved quality of life
