How Does ProSure® Work?


Weight loss due to cancer is different from weight loss due to dieting. Certain types of cancer cause changes in the body that decrease appetite, burn more calories than normal, and increase the breakdown of muscle. Simply eating more food isn't the answer if the underlying problems aren't addressed.

Studies show that 2 g of EPA* a day are optimal to counteract many of the changes caused by cancer that lead to weight loss. EPA helps stabilize weight loss; but EPA alone does not promote muscle and weight gain. In addition to 1.1 g of EPA in each 240-mL serving, ProSure® provides 300 calories and 16 g of protein to help you gain weight and build muscle; 2.6 g of scFOS† to help support digestive-tract health, and 28 vitamins and minerals to meet your nutritional needs. ProSure® is lower in fat than standard oral nutritional supplements and has omega-3 fatty acids (EPA) as part of the fat blend to help reduce delayed stomach emptying as compared to saturated and omega-6 fatty acids.

Important note:

Because cancer-induced weight loss caused by metabolic changes occurs regardless of your eating habits, ProSure® should supplement, not replace, your meals. Use under medical supervision.

* EPA = eicosapentaenoic acid
† scFOS = short-chain fructooligosaccharides, a prebiotic fiber
