casein/whey protein/soy protein/pea protein/fat mix/EPA/DHA-based nutritional supplement
A gluten-free, calorie-rich nutritional supplement containing all essential vitamins, minerals, and trace elements, as well as protein, fat and carbohydrates. The protein contained in this supplement is derived from a variety of sources, including casein, whey, soy and pea; it helps maintain digestive health throughout the gastrointestinal tract and reduces the risk of digestive complications. This supplement contains the essential omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanaeoic acid (DHA). DHA and EPA are incorporated into cell membranes and affect the production of pro-inflammatory mediators, eliciting an anti-inflammatory effect. Medium chain triglycerides (MCT) in this supplement enhance fat absorption. Upon oral intake of this nutritional supplement, the ingredients may prevent both malnutrition and weight loss.
