    Hi had oral surgery and I could not eat solid food for 2 weeks, the only drink replacement that I found I could tolerate was ensure. Ensure tasted great and it wasnt gritty. Boost shakes were disgusting and Slim Fast made me go to the bathroom and was gritty- these gave me the nutrition I needed but they were also yummy compared to the other brands.

    I thought Ensure vanilla tasted OK and it helped me gain weight, but I avoid it for frequent long-term use because when I drank Ensure 4X a day, the manganese intake equaled 240% of RDA (compared to 140% for the Boost I now take instead). Studies indicate a link between high manganese intake and neurodegenerative diseases, particularly Parkinson's, while such high intake has no apparent health benefits. So I choose to avoid this unnecessary health risk, even if I'm just being very cautious.

        Comments about Ensure Nutrition Shake, 8 fl oz, Vanilla, 6 ea:

        This item is being used to gain weight prior to medical treatments. Be careful when using, however, because there is Vitamin E in it and that is an issue when preparing for surgical procedures. All in all it will continue to be used as a aid in maintaining the immune system. It is a little pricey.

                   –  Sometimes it's challenging to eat a nutritionally-balanced diet. When you're on the go, sometimes you have to grab what's available. In some cases, what you grab falls short from a nutritional standpoint. Nutrition shakes help fill in the gaps where your diet falls short. They supply vitamins, minerals and nutrients that your body needs for good health. Plus, they're convenient – just open, sip and go.

This product is formulated with a balanced array of vitamins and minerals your body needs for good health. In addition, it contains antioxidants including lutein, an antioxidant important for healthy eyes and vision. Each serving contains 250 calories, 5 grams of protein and is low in saturated fat. It's a nutritionally-balanced meal replacement, between-meal snack and a convenient way to refuel and recover after a workout.

                  To serve this shake, enjoy it as is or refrigerate for a cool and refreshing way to hydrate. Who can benefit? Almost anyone can enjoy the nutritional benefits of this balanced shake.
