As you control your energy (calorie) intake, you can confidently include ONEsource™, knowing that you get a nutritional bang for the calories.

With no gritty texture or medicinal flavor, smooth and creamy ONEsource™ is an excellent way to enhance the quality of your diet.

    Q: I've always known milk was good for me because it contains calcium, but can you tell me why exactly calcium is good for me at this stage in my life?

    A: Regardless of age, calcium is vital to the proper functioning of the body. As we age, our ability to absorb calcium lessens and our kidneys become less efficient at retaining calcium. Calcium and vitamin D work together much like a horse and carriage. Vitamin D is necessary for the body to be able to absorb calcium but with age, vitamin D levels are often low. To maintain optimal health and well-being as we age, it is essential that the diet is rich in calcium and vitamin D and that it supplies enough of all the nutrients we need to support optimal health and well-being. ONEsource™ is made with REAL milk, containing the most absorbable form of calcium, and an 8-oz serving of ONEsource™ supplies more than one third of the Daily Value for 16 vitamins and minerals, including calcium and vitamin D.

    ONEsource™ Optimal Nutrition drinks offer an excellent way to help meet your calcium needs. Each 8-ounce serving contains 40% of the recommended Daily Value for both calcium and vitamin D.

    Q: Any thoughts on nutrition’s influence on arthritis?

    Osteoarthritis is a chronic degenerative disease that breaks down the cartilage that cushions the ends of bone and facilitates easy movement. As cartilage deteriorates, bone rubs against bone causing stiffness and pain, making it difficult to move the affected joint. While no cure exists for osteoarthritis, three lifestyle changes can make it more manageable. Weight management, physical activity, and a well-balanced, healthful diet are all help management strategies.

    • Weight loss to trim extra pounds helps to relieve the stress on affected joints such as knees and hips. Every pound lost reduces the burden on knees by 4 pounds.
    • Physical activity helps to strengthen muscles and bones, increases flexibility and stamina, and promotes mobility.
    • A well-balanced, nutrient-rich diet is a strong ally in the management of osteoarthritis. Research has shown favorable results from a diet rich in three nutrients in particular, the antioxidant selenium, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin D.

    ONEsource™ is an ideal food to include in a diet designed to manage and lower the risks associated with arthritis. ONEsource™, recommended by registered dietitians, nutritionists, and doctors as an nutrient-rich part of a well-balanced weight loss diet, supplies one third or more of the Daily Value for 16 essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamin D and three immune-enhancing antioxidants, selenium and vitamins C and E.
