Read this entire study on line, this is just a taste of how nutritional intervention improves health outcomes!
The changes and improvements begin with the correction of the composition of our bowel flora. This is where the first step is CRITICALLY needed! More than 50% of heart disease, diabetes and strokes can be prevented with this first step.

The NOURISH Clinical Study
A novel oral nutritional supplement reduced the risk of mortality by 50% through 90 days posthospital discharge1
NOURISH Trial Makes a Pivotal Case for Oral Nutritional Supplements in Older (≥65 Years) Malnourished Patients1
Malnutrition and the associated loss of lean body mass is a common but often undiagnosed problem. It affects many patients throughout the aging process, and it can lead to an increased risk of morbidity and mortality, as well as create significant economic burden.
In one of the largest clinical studies of its kind, Ensure® Enlive®, with 20 grams high-quality protein plus HMB (ß-hydroxy
ß-methylbutyrate), taken BID (vs food plus placebo) reduced the risk of mortality by 50% through 90 days posthospital discharge in 652 malnourished cardiopulmonary patients 65 years or older.
The study did not observe a significant effect for the primary composite endpoint of nonelective readmission or death at 90 days.
