The life of an anaesthesiologist is not as easy as it may seem, especially when confronted with 24 hour duties and surgeries of all kinds popping up unexpectedly, at any hour of the day. No matter how many years you spend in the medical field, it never gets easier. On the contrary, as one gets older, it gets harder to be at your best as the emergency calls come in.

Maintaining a basic exercise regimen, eating healthy, taking healthy supplements like Ensure all play a role in staying healthy as the years go by.

At the start of this year, I had blogged about how I had added Ensure to my health regimen as part of my New Year resolution to improve my strength. I have been taking Ensure regularly for a little over three months now and am beginning to understand why health is not a short race but a steady long term journey.
Some of the changes are noticeable by their presence while others can only be experienced once you start having Ensure.

Visible changes -


  • The physical fatigue is definitely down. I know because I have never been the fittest of the lot but now I can do six flights of stairs to reach my operation theatre at the hospital.
  • More importantly, I am not mentally fatigued. My job demands that 100 % alertness even at 3 am in the morning, if the call come, as the patient's life depends on it.
  • I am more active now. Whether it is helping out at home or driving 90 kms to watch the new Avengers movie or catching up with friends after work, I don’t say ‘I’m tired, maybe later’ anymore.

Ensure experience –


  • Considering how physically draining the heat has been in Kerala this summer and how exhausted people far fitter than me were by the end of the day, I know for a fact that my core body strength and tolerance has improved.
  • Similarly, summer brings with it a plethora of communicable ailments for our patients and invariably we tend to catch their sniffles and chest colds. But since I have been having Ensure I haven’t caught any of these ailments, even when surrounded by sick patients all around me.

Maintaining a basic exercise regimen, eating healthy, taking healthy supplements like Ensure all play a role in staying healthy as the years go by.
I personally love the Vanilla flavour of Ensure.

Staying healthy is a lifelong trek. I cannot choose to gloat over small term victories and then allow myself to fall back into the old traps once more.

Maintaining a basic exercise regimen, eating healthy, taking healthy supplements like Ensure all play a role in staying healthy as the years go by.


Whether it is maintaining a basic exercise regimen, eating healthy, taking healthy supplements like Ensure or attaining mental peace, I need to continue using all these aids in this trek to #EnsureAStronger2018.

Hearing a lot of good things about Ensure. It makes sense for adults to pick up their glass of vital nutrition everyday, just like we insist our kids do!

I think something like Ensure is really important for adults too. There's so many things to do and so easy to get tired.
Good to know that it is helping you. Maybe I should try it too!

We do need food supplements in our diet as we age, for our bodies are not able to absorb all the nutrients from our diet and also that the veggies and fruits we eat these days are all grown with chemicals. Supplements like Ensure, help fill the gap. Glad that it is working for you so well. Which form of protein does it have?

I think most of us need a little help to deal wtih the stresses of life. Sounds lie Ensure is working well for you! I use protein shakes - likely somewhat similar.

Ensure seems perfect! A few of my immediate relatives are docs and they work crazy hours! This seems like a perfect suggestion for them.

Physical fatigue is what all of us want to get rid of. Whether a person is fitness freak or a 9 to 5 Presto, everyone wants to be active and fit.
Staying healthy is a lifetime commitment you make to your body. This definitely looks like a promising product to maintain health and fitness .
Having a healthy lifestyle needs exercise, nutritious diet and yes even supplements which generic foods cannot supply. Great way to have an energetic and strong life.
As we age, it becomes more essential to make up for the protein deficits that come with it.
Its definitely working for me
The problem with a predominantly veggie diet is the lack of proteins that need to then be supplemented.
More people need to. Be aware of it. Indians have a huge percentage of protein deficient population
True. Ensure offers additional mineral and Vitamin supplements over protein shakes though
Its perfect for our field honestly. We have the worst diet due to our erratic timings and often hospital food.
Me too. Between the two, I always choose vanilla.
I've been lax in this Regard. Making a change this year
It is one of those products that we've actually prescribed for years.
Need to have all of it together. That is the truth.
