      Hi Ms Linda, Please do consult a doctor or nutritionist for proper medical advice. They would probably give more wholesome advice in checking whether you need more calcium or protein in your diet. Ensure is Abbott’s leading brand for senior citizens in supplementing their diets with minerals, vitamins and protein.
