Ensure is the brand name of liquid nutritional supplements manufactured by Abbott Laboratories.

First produced in 1973 as a medical nutrition product, Ensure beverages are formulated to provide calories, protein and essential vitamins and minerals. Ensure is intended for supplemental use with or between meals and for interim sole-source nutrition. Ensure is not for parenteral use.

Ensure products provide a source of nutrition in connection with aging, recovery from illness, injury or surgery, and managing physical and mental conditions that cause an inability or refusal to eat, appetite loss, or overall weight loss. Ensure shakes are Kosher, Halal, gluten-free and suitable for lactose intolerance (not for people with galactosemia).

Other products in the Ensure family include Glucerna, and Glucerna Hunger Smart nutrition shakes which are specifically designed for people with diabetes to help minimize blood sugar spikes and manage hunger as part of a diabetes weight loss plan. Use under medical supervision. Ensure and Glucerna products can be purchased at pharmacies, grocery stores, drug stores, wholesale clubs and mass merchandisers.

In 2009 Abbott Laboratories sold over $1 billion of its liquid nutritional supplements, Ensure, and the related pediatric product, PediaSure.

In 2012, Abbott announced a new manufacturing facility in Tipp City, Ohio for the production of Ensure and Glucerna, a nutritional product for people with type 2 diabetes. The facility will become operational in late 2013.

Famous quotes containing the word ensure:

    [17th-century] Puritans were the first modern parents. Like many of us, they looked on their treatment of children as a test of their own self-control. Their goal was not to simply to ensure the child’s duty to the family, but to help him or her make personal, individual commitments. They were the first authors to state that children must obey God rather than parents, in case of a clear conflict.
    C. John Sommerville (20th century)

    It is Mortifying to suppose it possible that a people able and zealous to contend with the Enemy should be reduced to fold their Arms for want of the means of defence; yet no resources that we know of, ensure us against this event.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    This type of man who is devoted to the study of wisdom is always most unlucky in everything, and particularly when it comes to procreating children; I imagine this is because Nature wants to ensure that the evils of wisdom shall not spread further throughout mankind.
    Desiderius Erasmus (c. 1466–1536)
