Nutrition is a topic which is all around us, everyday. While we often talk about obesity and weight loss diets we can overlook that the opposite, meaning mal- or undernutrition, can be as detrimental. We talk about malnutrition when our body is not provided with sufficient energy and nutrients over several days. These nutrients, for example protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals, are necessary to ensure all essential functions of the body.
When our nutritional status is not optimal our body will get weaker in its reaction towards challenges, such as a disease, a cold or an infection. Improving our nutritional status can therefore support and protect our body. Nutrition may also influence a person in terms of how they react to a specific disease or insult e.g. surgery and certain nutrients have been shown to have a therapeutic effect for patients in certain conditions. We are committed to support you to prevent and manage the detrimental effects of malnutrition with a broad variety of nutritional products.
