Straight Facts About Ensure as A Supplement

ENSURE products
Common misconceptions on Ensure is that it’s for old people, for sick individuals and that it’s a milk. Actually, Ensure is a supplement which is packed with vitamins, minerals and nutrients enough to bridge the gap between your lost nutrient absorption. Now, bridging your nutrition gap happens when you grow older and your ability to absorb nutrients are lessened and slows down. When you skip meals or eat fatty processed food, you hasten your nutrition gap as well. To compensate with this, you need to boost your body’s ability to absorb nutrients.

Ensure is not for old people ONLY. Active individuals who are as young as 20 years old can take Ensure. Why would you wait to get old and repair what you lost when you can prevent that loss?


Ensure contains a very vital ingredient which is called FOS or Fructooligosaccharides which is a prebiotic, soluble fiber that helps in the absorption of nutrients in our body. The British Journal of Nutrition regards FOS as one of the important functional food components that have beneficial effects to the aging body. FOS naturally occur in some foods such as onions, wheat, bananas and tomatoes (do you like to eat tomatoes and onions by it self and repeat several times a day?). Ensure can provide you with your body’s needed FOS.

Introduced by Abbott Nutrition and recommended by most doctors as an adult nutritional drink, Ensure, with its FOS helps enhance nutrient absorption and supports healthy digestive system.  Not only that, it provides a complete and balanced nutrition for healthy-aging adults who want to stay healthy and live fully. It is an excellent source of 28 vitamins and minerals, including antioxidants Vitamin C and E, selenium and beta-carotene to help strengthen the immune system and promote recovery from illness and infection.

Who endorses Ensure?

None other than the power couple, Christopher De Leon who looked dashing at 54 and his wife Sandy Andolong- De Leon who is also as pretty as she was back in the days. If you talk about growing old elegantly, this couple sure is a good candidate. Thanks to Ensure, exercise and good disposition, they said.

How much is Ensure? 

Small can costs P600 plus. Yes, it’s very expensive but then again, it’s a supplement. Think of the other “herbal” drinks the networking companies offer, it costs as much. I’d prefer Ensure because it’s from Abbott and I’m sure is not a fly-by-night company.

Moms, we do need supplements like Ensure to help us cope up with our daily chores and responsibilities. I know that most of the time we forget to take care of ourselves but when you take supplements like Ensure, you’re at least covered. Let’s spare a few minutes a day to take our supplements and be healthy and strong. Do it for yourself and your family! 🙂

    Dear Sir/ Madam

    I bought an ENSURE Vanila for my food supplement. I followed the instructions on how to prepare a 190 ml of cold water in a glass.

    However, I was puzzled by the instruction saying 6 level scoop. Can you tell me please what exactly does it mean 6 level scoops.? Does it mean that I will apply 6 scoops ( 1 level= 1 full scoop?) Am I correct?

    Thank you very much.

      Hello F,

      Yes 6 level scoops = 6 full scoops. If you bought a big can of Ensure, it comes with it's own scoop.
      I bet the "level" means that the scoop isn't too full like there's a mound of milk on top of the scoop but you take off the excess powder milk right were the tip of the scoop.

      Hope this helps!

      Hello Madam,

      Please allow me to share my experience. I enjoy Ensure Vannila and recently swtiched to Ensure Chocolate. I throughly enjoy the drink. The way I prepare is use one table spoon of Ensure to a glass of boiled milk and drink it hot. My one glass is one Neslte Reg Mug. Hope you get the measurement.

      I drink twice a day with the same preparation. This is good enough is what I feel.

      Thanks ,
      Mey, Bangalore

  2. After giv birth,suitable to drink Ensure?

    • renzalcantara says:

      Hi Chloe,

      I don\’t see why not but if you are breast feeding, you might want to ask your Pedia for a suitable supplement.


  3. Thanks for this!!!! -> Hello F,

    Yes 6 level scoops = 6 full scoops. If you bought a big can of Ensure, it comes with it's own scoop.
    I bet the "level" means that the scoop isn't too full like there's a mound of milk on top of the scoop but you take off the excess powder milk right were the tip of the scoop.

  4. Am I going to get the same affects if I am not using the powder, or is best for me to use the powder to mix myself. I by the already mixed drink.

    • renzalcantara says:

      Hi Constance,

      The only problem I see with using the powder is not using enough \”scoops\”. Unless you use the proper water mL required and the number of scoops. 🙂
      Other than that, powder or mixed drink should be fine.

    Just wanted to say thanks for a great article!
    My personal favorite is Ensure Choclate, and i like to do the same as Meyyappan do with the boiled milk. I usually drink my Ensure along with the intake of green coffee beans which i have implemented in my diet ever since i first tried it
