Ensure – Helps Increase Muscle Mass
Importance Of Muscles
- Muscles are more than just biceps.
- Muscle loss can affect your strength and energy levels.
- You may start noticing muscle loss, or some of its side effects, when you turn 40.
- At this age, you can start to lose 8 percent of your muscle mass per decade, which translates to roughly 25 percent by the time you turn 70.1
Importance Of Protein
- Protein is known as the building block of muscle, and is the only macronutrient that repairs and rebuilds damaged muscle tissue2
- Scientific evidence has also shown that protein supplementation enhances muscle mass and muscle strength 3.
Choosing The Right Protein
While protein is sourced from various food items like milk, wheat, peanuts, egg, green gram etc. ; not all protein sources are equal. Hence choosing a right source of protein is important.
Ensure contains high quality proteins that can help increase muscle mass. Also, Ensure has balanced macronutrient ratio supporting optimum utilization of proteins.4
