Ensure Enlive has essential nutrients that support muscle, bone, heart, immunity and digestive health, including:

  • 1.5g CaHMB
  • 20g high-quality protein
  • 120% DV of vitamin D

Nourish Study

one of the largest clinical
studies of its kind

The NOURISH trial studied the impact of Ensure Enlive vs placebo on readmissions and mortality through 90 days post-hospital discharge. The study did not observe a significant effect for the primary composite endpoint of non-elective readmission or death at 90 days, but Ensure Enlive was shown to decrease mortality risk throughout the observation period.2

Ensure Enlive significantly decreased mortality and improved health outcomes through 90 days post-discharge in malnourished, cardiopulmonary hospital patients ≥65 years of age.3

malnutrition is highly prevalent among aging adults

The risk increases for patients suffering from chronic diseases, known as disease-related malnutrition.
Malnutrition causes adverse effects on body function and clinical outcomes and can occur at any BMI.4


  • Approximately 50% of patients with COPD
    admitted to the hospital suffer from disease-related
  • 50% of patients with cancer have some nutritional
    deficit prior to being diagnosed13

the loss of lean body mass increases the risk
of morbidity and mortality1

Overall, the impact of LBM loss is far-reaching and affects multiple aspects
of an individual’s life, including mobility, independence, the ability to perform
daily activities, and quality of life. It is also associated with higher healthcare costs,
morbidity, and mortality.14

The NOURISH Study makes a pivotal case
for Ensure Enlive among malnourished patients
≥65 years of age.2

The NOURISH Study investigated the impact of Ensure Enlive high-protein
ONS with HMB (β-hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate).2

Patient Population:

652 malnourished patients aged ≥65 years of age and hospitalized with acute myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, pneumonia, or COPD

Study Design:

Prospective, randomized,
double-blind, placebo-controlled,
nutritional intervention study conducted at 78 sites

Primary Composite Endpoint:

Readmission or mortality through
90 days post-discharge

Ensure Enlive Decreased Mortality Through 90 Days
Post-Hospital Discharge2,*

Ensure Enlive led to a consistent and marked reduction in mortality through 90 days post-discharge,
and similar readmission rates between groups.2
