Pros:Balanced Nutrition That Can Help Many People

Cons:None

The Bottom Line: I find this to be very good and nutritional, which really works well and tastes great. If you have to use something like this, try this one first!


That's right, Ensure Plus helps sustain life. How do I know? Easy! I have had 2 brother's in terrible accidents, and they both had to be on Ensure. One was on regular Ensure and the other was on Ensure Plus. And, when I say this, I mean for months and years. One of my brothers broke his neck in an automobile accident. He ended up being on Ensure Plus for many months and he still uses it to this day. The other brother was in a Coma for 5 years, and he was on Ensure the entire time.


What do I know about Ensure Plus? It is packed with Vitamins, and many other Nutrients. It comes in a nice 8 ounce plastic can with a metal lid. You simply refrigerate, shake and serve. Sometimes I put it in the freezer for a little while, so it can get slushy like. Sometimes, my brother that is paralyzed, will not feel like eating a big meal in the evening and he will opt for an Ensure Plus. He says, it is filling and finds it very satisfactory.

Of course my brother that was comatose all of those years, was never able to tell me anything about it. What I did learn, from him being on it, was that, his weight had to be watched. Sometimes, his feedings would have to be cut back a little as he would actually gain pounds. Also, they would put green food coloring in the Ensure to make sure it was going through his system. It was his only food source, for five long years. So, I know if a person had to, they could live on Ensure and Ensure Plus for a very long time.

I have sampled some myself and I like the Chocolate. But, my brother prefers the Vanilla. Each can is also dated on the bottom, with month and year it expires. So, you will want to check this out and always use it before the expiration date.

Ensure Plus is packed with 24 essential vitamins and minerals. It is Lactose free and digests very easily. It is in liquid form and should be shaken well before opened. You can buy it by the case, 8 pack, 6 pack or 4 pack. We usually try and buy it by the case at the price of around $35.00. We were recently traveling out in Colorado, and I hadn't packed enough for my brother, so I bought a 4 pack at a local store for around $7.00. Prices seem to really vary on this product. But, one thing is for sure. It works!

This is only my opinion, I am not a Doctor. But, if you ever need a GOOD source of food supplement. I would try Ensure Plus or Ensure.


Thank You.
