Ensure – Helps Boost Immunity
Importance of a balanced immune system
Having a balanced immune system is important as you age. Too little of an immune response leaves us susceptible to infections, whereas an overactive immune response may contribute to age related diseases like osteoarthritis, diabetes & Alzheimer’s.1
Protection against infections
In order to maintain protection against infections, an adequate supply of nutrients is required2 .Research has shown that micronutrients help in antibody formation and the development of the immune system3. Vitamins A, C, E, B6, Folic Acid, Zinc, Selenium, Iron and Copper have important effects on immune responses4.
Ensure contains Immunonutrients like Vitamins A, C, E, Folic Acid, Zinc and Magnesium
