How ENU Helps:

Dealing with a cancer diagnosis takes a toll under the best of circumstances; once treatment begins, side effects can magnify that toll tenfold. The use of radiation and chemotherapy – though necessary in many cases – can cause side effects as debilitating as any disease. Patients undergoing treatment can experience:

Digestive Issues, Including Nausea, Vomiting, or Diarrhea

Many of the side effects of chemo and radiation make it difficult to chew or swallow solid food, making it essential for patients to find alternate ways to maintain a nutritious diet. Meal replacement shakes from ENU offer a well-rounded blend of protein, fats, carbs, vitamins, and minerals in a form that’s easy to consume, even if you have trouble chewing or swallowing. Try an ENU shake today and get balanced nutrition with minimal discomfort.

Difficulty Chewing and Swallowing Solid Food

Keeping food down after cancer treatments can be a challenge – especially if you experience side effects like nausea or vomiting – but adding a healthy meal replacement shake to your diet can give you the support you need without upsetting your system. ENU shakes come in mild flavors that are easy to tolerate, and their convenience lets you adapt your nutritional intake to those rare moments when you actually have an appetite. Plus, ENU shakes contain a balanced mix of key nutrients to help your body stay strong during treatment.

A Change in the Ability to Taste or Smell

Changes in a patient’s sense of taste or smell are not uncommon during cancer treatments, and those who experience them must often adjust their diets to compensate. Because ENU nutritional shakes come in mellow, inoffensive flavors, they’re well-suited to a wide variety of tastes – even those altered by chemo or radiation – and they have virtually no odor. Additionally, ENU Pro3+ does not alter the taste of the food you are already eating. If you find yourself struggling to meet your nutritional needs because of a change in taste or smell, try a nutritional support product from ENU.

Loss of Appetite or Weight Changes

Maintaining a healthy body weight is tough when you’re fighting cancer, given the number of symptoms and side effects that can make eating a difficult task. Still, it’s important for cancer patients to keep their strength up during treatment, as their bodies need resources to support the healing process. ENU products address this need by providing a sizeable amount of calories to fuel the body along with crucial servings of fats, carbs, and protein – all in one tasty, convenient package.

Weight Changes Can Jeopardize Health and Recovery

One of the many challenges that often come with cancer treatments is maintaining weight while battling the symptoms of both disease and cure. The loss of body mass tends to go hand in hand with a drop in energy levels, which only makes dealing with illness more difficult. A patient who is not getting the appropriate level of nutrients can become malnourished and further jeopardize their health, which may in turn cause their treatments to stop for a period of time.

Imagine having to contend with a cancer diagnosis, then with the side effects of medication and radiation treatments, only to find yourself forced to pause your treatments and delay your recovery from a life-threatening condition. Few developments are as frustrating as having to stop treating your disease; taking stock of your options can help prevent this, however.

The simplest and most effective method of preventing a decline in strength is to consistently consume nutrients – especially carbohydrates, fats, and proteins – that will keep you fueled in your fight against cancer. For many patients, nutrition shakes offer a unique opportunity to keep up with their body’s needs without having to plan meals or chew and swallow through pain and nausea. Depending on the composition, these beverages can provide most of the calories and macronutrients you need to stay at a healthy weight during treatment.

What to Do When Your Mouth Betrays You

Treatments for cancer fight the disease by targeting fast-growing cancer cells; unfortunately, those same techniques can kill off similar healthy cells, especially those in the mouth and digestive system. This is the cause of another common side effect during cancer treatments: mucositis, a condition characterized by sores in the mouth and throat that can make eating an unpleasant task. Those undergoing treatment for cancer of the mouth or throat often experience further pain while chewing or swallowing, and changes in a person’s sense of taste or smell are not uncommon.

In all, this collection of symptoms only makes weight management even more trying, at a time when many patients feel they have larger concerns than the readout on their bathroom scale. However, the importance of maintaining a healthy diet is only heightened by the body’s weakened state; you need to take in enough fuel to keep your strength up. Meal replacement shakes – especially those that offer a significant number of calories and natural, healthy ingredients – can offer a smooth, tasty way to sustain you without forcing you to chew, plan, or otherwise struggle with meals.

Ease the Burden on Your Gut

At a time when your gastrointestinal tract is under attack by the very drugs aimed at helping you, the last thing you want to do is ingest something that could be difficult for your system to process. Patients frequently experience symptoms such as constipation, diarrhea, stomach cramps, and nausea, so choosing what to eat or drink can be a critical decision at mealtimes. Still, it’s important that you keep up with your daily nutritional requirements to stay healthy.

ENU nutrition shakes contain many of the necessary elements that make up a nutritious diet, including whey protein isolate – one of the easiest forms of protein to digest – along with natural sources of carbs and healthy fats derived from coconut and sunflower oils to give you sustained energy without disrupting your gut.
