If you or a loved one suffers from dysphagia, the Liqui-Life shake is an excellent way to ensure that your body is getting the micronutrients (vitamin and supplements) that your body needs.

Whether you are pre-op or post-op or recovering from an illness, your body must be provided with the nutrients that it needs to protect, repair and aid recovery.

"As a doctor working in General Practice and Out of Hours, I regularly see older or frail patients who suffer the side effects of poor nutrition. This is not because their nutritional status has not been assessed and they or their carers aren’t trying to consume the right foods, but because their general health means that their diet is restricted or they simply cannot eat enough food for their needs.
Low intake of calories for energy, protein for muscle strength and essential minerals for wound healing and fighting infections, means that these patients are at increased risk of developing these illnesses and or struggling to recover properly.
From my research, I know that NuVu Life provides an excellent balance of nutrients to keep people well, resist illness and to aid recovery when they are unwell - and most importantly it's tasty and small volumes which means it can be consumed easily."

"After being in the hospital for seven weeks, having a major operation as well as having cancer. I came home having lost 1 1/2 stones, my clothes hung off me and I was extremely weak. I could hardly walk and relied on my husband and son to help me get about and get meals for me.
My son was recommended NuVu Life shakes to help build me up, they have helped me a lot and I also enjoy them.
I am now feeling much better and continues to take them. "
