Oral Nutritional Supplements Available at Carmichael’s
Did you know that Carmichael’s offers a large selection of oral nutritional supplements that may benefit certain patients and older adults? Oral nutritional supplements are typically made as a combination of macronutrients (protein, carbohydrate, and fat) and micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, and trace elements). They may be used as a single source of nutrition but are primarily used to supplement a regular diet. They are ideal for patients who are usually able to eat regular food but not enough to meet their nutritional needs.
Nutrition intervention that includes oral nutritional supplements helps patients fight infections, combat malnutrition and decreased protein levels, aid in wound healing and more. These products also are used for older adults in community-based settings as well as for people who are hospitalized for certain conditions and procedures and prone to poor outcomes.
Oral nutrition supplements increase a patient’s ability to fight infection, decrease the chance for hospitalization and speed healing and recovery times. Carmichael’s has experienced, licensed pharmacists and technicians who work closely with primary caregivers to provide individual patients with proper nutritional intake.
We offer oral nutritional supplements in several forms:
- clear liquid beverages
- juice-based beverages
- milk-based beverages
- protein powder drinks and soups
