One bottle for high nutritional needs of older adults in case/risk of malnutrition, especially suitable for the elderly with sarcopenia, frailty or age-related musculoskeletal deficits.
• 480kcal/bottle to provide the minimum effective dose and improve compliance to recommended intake of energy in one bottle1,2
28.8g High Quality Milk Protein*
• 28.8g protein/bottle to meet increased protein needs in a low volume
• 25 – 30g of protein is the effective dose to maximally stimulate and sustain muscle protein synthesis in malnourished patients with increased needs3
• 2.8g leucine/bottle: 2.5 – 3g leucine is recommended per meal to maximally stimulate and sustain Muscle Protein Synthesis in malnourished sarcopenic persons3
10μg Vitamin D*
• 15-20μg per day is recommended for adults of 65 years or over** 4,5
• In combination with the high protein and high calcium content it is especially suitable for frail patients6
• 750 – 900mg per day is recommended for adults of 65 years or over7
• High nutrient density in a lower volume may help improve compliance
