Flavor Name: Chocolate
Great product. Do an search engine for health benefits. My quest is to fight the decline of "muscle wasting" as we age and this product
(it's key protein metabolite) will put you on the positive side of "protein turnover". Check out med study at Iowa State. Combine this product with n-3 and battle the muscle loss. My best price, currently is Walgreen's - Order 16 btls at $6.99 and receive free shipping (over $25.00)

Flavor Name: Chocolate
I've given the product 5 stars because I love this product, but I'm hoping the description will be fixed soon so I can understand how many bottles I would be getting if I ordered. It states the list price is roughly $128, reduced to roughly $44. With a list price of $128, that suggests they are selling 16 4-packs (or 64 bottles) for $44. But many reviews suggest the price is for 16 bottles, much higher than everyone else is selling them. So I'm confused and won't be purchasing from this vendor until the description is clarified or the price is corrected.

Flavor Name: Chocolate
Ensure drinks have their benefits for those who have trouble consuming enough nutrients to keep a healthy diet. However, research into hydroxymethylbutyrate (HMB) is preliminary and have not been conclusive as of now. HMB is a by-product created when the body metabolizes the amino acid leucide. Some small short-term studies have suggested that supplements of HMB might help adults gain more lean muscle mass from strength training, particularly if they are fit and exercise regularly. But overall the results of the studies are conflicting.

Ensure Muscle Health 8 oz bottle contains 250 calories and 22 grams of sugar, you need to drink two of them a day to get 3 grams of HMB used in the studies. That means a healthy person would need to work off extra 500 calories a day to avoid weight gain, as a weight gain would negate any possible benefit of increased muscle (if HMB in fact works).

If you drink Ensure to gain weight this product works fine, benefits for people who do not need to gain weight are not definitive.

I bought both flavor's for my mom. Last July she was real sick and every bone in her body hurt so bad that she cried or screamed when we tried to get her out of bed. She is only 76 and it should not be that way. So we tried your ensure in 1 or 2 smoothies a day that she got better in a couple of weeks. She stoped taking it for a week, but started back after that because she could tell the difference. So you can keep sending them. Thank you

I like the product and came back to reorder. The price has increased just under $9.00 since the beginning of the month. I was going to buy several and/or subscribe but now I'm back to looking for a reasonable price.

Ensure Muscle Health has helped me feel better. I fell and broke my left wrist last fall, and I believe that this product helped me regain strength in my left hand since I started drinking it. At least I feel better.

Flavor Name: Vanilla Verified Purchase
This one-star rating is because of Amazon's egregious usury in GROSSLY inflating prices on an item generally used by seniors and/or people with health conditions.

The current price on this item is literally three times (3x!) what I paid for it originally when I signed up for Subscribe and Save 2 months ago. I received 2 shipments at the older, reasonable, price, but the third one, without warning, was shipped at the new astronomical, over-a-hundred-dollar price. The original price was the average price found at grocery stores and drug stores, around ten a four-pack, and the convenience of having it shipped straight to my mom was helpful. But not THAT helpful!!!!

Customer service said they were unable to adjust the price but instead sent (by email) a pre-paid return shipping label and offered a one-time promotional certificate to use on another item at Amazon. The customer service rep I spoke with was helpful and apologetic and I made a real effort not to take out my disgust and outrage with Amazon on him.

The product itself, Ensure Muscle Health Vanilla (4 x 4-packs) is a favorite of my mom, who is elderly and has had ongoing health issues for the last year. She finds it comforting when she is just not hungry for anything else and I'm happy that she is at least getting some nutrition. She, as the consumer, would probably give the product a 5-star rating. I'd probably give a 3.5-4 star rating, since it does what it says it will do, but seems to be mostly chemicals and doesn't taste great to me - but then I eat a mostly raw vegan diet, so my views are skewed anyway. :)

This is a great meal replacement or between meal snack, when your busy and on the go. Use these when I don't have time to mix up a protein shake. They contain a little less protein, but hit the spot and keep me going through the day. Flavor is actually better than I expected.
