Oral Nutrition Supplements

For patients who are unable to meet their nutrient needs from food alone, oral nutrition supplements (ONS) can help. Often found in liquid or powder  form, patients take oral nutrition supplements in addition to their regular diet to help meet their individual nutrition needs and support their health goals.

The Role of Oral Nutrition Supplements in Patient Care

Oral nutrition supplements are an important nutrition strategy to help patients maintain or gain weight, recover from illness or injury and get critical macro- and micronutrients to support overall health. If a patient needs additional calories, protein, or other nutrients beyond the foods they normally eat, and the patient is able to swallow food normally, then a healthcare professional may recommend an oral nutrition supplement. Use of oral nutrition supplements may help improve patient outcomes.1,2

Nestlé Health Science offers a range of oral nutrition supplements in a variety of formats, from clear to thick liquids, to powders and pudding-like desserts.  There are many flavor options that patients can enjoy, providing balanced nutrition in each serving, or supporting nutrient needs of a specific disease state or condition.
