• "The conversation today is focused on the hazards of sugar consumption. One critical piece that has been missing from clinical nutrition is how does sugar affect those who are already health compromised and on feeding tubes. If you are using formulas full of corn syrup solids, fructose and other sugars, how can you ever possibly expect a good outcome?

    Healthcare practitioners who are truly focused on health should be thrilled that Liquid Hope™ represents an organic whole foods no sugar added option for those who are seeking true health."

  • "From a "Food as Medicine" perspective, Liquid Hope and Nourish are about much more than providing necessary calories. They both contain the essential macronutrients, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and a rich array of plant-based phytonutrients. Plant-based phytonutrients have been shown to reduce inflammation and improve insulin signaling via epigenetic pathways that change how genes express themselves. In addition, plant-based fiber is proving to be a critical dietary source for improving the diversity of the human microbiome and human health.

    Why would anyone choose a food that is not well designed to create health when Liquid Hope is an available option?"

  • "I can guarantee that eating a whole foods smoothie diet has helped me maintain a good weight, stay healthier, and feel better. When we travel or do not have the time to blend meals, we are so fortunate to be able to use Liquid Hope. It is by far the best whole foods formula we have found."

Message From Our Medical Director

Food as Medicine

The Future of Enteral Nutrition Support

We have seen an unprecedented rise in the burden of chronic complex disease in the United States. In acute care settings, skilled nursing facilities, rehab centers and home care settings, the unique nutritional-metabolic demands of individuals continues to skyrocket. Traditional enteral nutritional supplements have usually been viewed as caloric-replacements, serving the simple need of "giving calories back" that an individual requires. Most of these formulations use processed ingredients, GMO-based corn and soy products, and can often be very high-glycemic in their metabolic effects.

Liquid Hope and Nourish are unique in their whole-food, organic, nutrient dense, and balanced macronutrient content. The diverse array of plant-based phytonutrients and quality protein is unlike anything on the market.

From a "Food as Medicine" perspective, Liquid Hope and Nourish are about much more than providing necessary calories. They both contain the essential macronutrients, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and a rich array of plant-based phytonutrients. Plant-based phytonutrients have been shown to reduce inflammation and improve insulin signaling via epigenetic pathways that change how genes express themselves. In addition, plant-based fiber is proving to be a critical dietary source for improving the diversity of the human microbiome and human health.

Research from many disciplines is clear that what we ingest has the potential to:

  • Speak to our DNA, e.g., epigenetics, altering gene expression patterns
  • Lower inflammation
  • Improve glycemic balance and insulin signaling
  • Enhance cognitive function
  • Improve gastrointestinal-mucosal barrier integrity
  • Modulate pain
  • Improve energy, i.e., bioenergetics

Why would anyone choose a food that is not well designed to create health when Liquid Hope is an available option?
