Abbott Introduces Ensure Complete™ Shakes For Adults

ABBOTT PARK, Ill., Oct. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Abbott (NYSE: ABT), the global healthcare company and producer of the number one doctor-recommended brand of oral nutrition supplements, is launching Ensure Complete.

Ensure Complete shakes offer 4-in-1 nutrition that provides targeted muscle, heart, immune system, and bone support to help meet adults' daily dietary needs.  Available in chocolate and vanilla flavors, Ensure Complete shakes are suitable for gluten-free and lactose intolerant diets. [1]

Ensure Complete shakes feature Abbott's proprietary ingredient, Revigor ®, a source of beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB), an amino-acid metabolite, and 13 grams of protein to help protect, preserve and promote muscle health. Revigor, in combination with protein, can help rebuild muscle by helping to stabilize muscle cells and slowing protein breakdown while promoting the production of new muscle tissue.

Ensure Complete also has omega 3's to support heart health[2], prebiotics[3] and antioxidants (vitamins C, E and Selenium) to support the immune system, and calcium and vitamin D for bone support.

News Facts:
  • Starting at age 40, the body may begin to lose eight percent of its muscle per decade, which can affect people's strength to do things they enjoy. Both Ensure Complete and Ensure Muscle Health shakes feature Revigor and can help adults meet their muscle health goals.
  • Ensure Complete provides 24 essential vitamins and minerals, along with 350 calories to help gain or maintain a healthy weight when a normal diet may not be enough.
  • Ensure Complete is also formulated to support four key areas:
    • Muscle : Revigor and 13 grams of protein to help maintain lean body mass
    • Heart : omega 3's - 610-650 mg of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids a-linolenic acids (ALA) to help support heart health
    • Immune : prebiotics (3 grams of fiber) for digestive tract benefits; and antioxidants C, E, & Selenium, for immune system support
    • Bone: calcium and vitamin D to promote bone health

Commentary on Ensure Complete:

From Christine Steele, Ph.D., Director, Science, Innovation & Education, Research and Development, Abbott:"It's not always possible to get all the nutrients needed through a typical diet and complete nutrition is important, particularly as someone is recovering from a health setback.  To provide nutritional support for adults, Abbott introduced Ensure Complete as a good source of nutrition to help meet dietary needs by contributing to muscle, heart, immune system, and bone health.  This 4-in-1 nutrition also makes Ensure Complete a great option for helping adults stay active and strong as they age."
