This product is for my husbands G- tube feedings. It works well.
My father has end stage COPD. He could not eat enough to compensate due to high caloric needs. He can now get up and walk to the kitchen at times. Its really improved his cognitive abilities and is more eager to engage with us. I could not be happier with the results of the proper nutritional results. The Advanced Health Mart has been great so
