Boost Nutritional Drink products are a source of protein, dietary fiber, probiotic bacteria for intestinal health, and a variety of vitamins and minerals such as calcium and vitamin D, according to Boost.com. Each Boost Original Nutritional Drink contains slightly more than 8 ounces of liquid.
People who need extra nutrition may supplement traditional meals with meal-replacement supplements such as Boost Nutritional Drinks. After surgery, during illness, or as part of an effort to gain or lose weight, Boost Nutritional Drink products offer a compact, easily-consumed meal-replacement option, claims the manufacturer's website.
Nutrition supplements such as Boost Nutritional Drink also provide an additional source of valuable nutrition for senior citizens. Seniors may suffer from dehydration as well as protein deficiency, symptoms of which include dental problems and a lack of appetite, says A Place for Mom. Nutritional supplements provide an additional option for resolving and preventing these conditions. Protein smoothies give seniors a way to consume protein without needing to chew or swallow solids. Senior men should consume about 60 grams of protein, while senior women should get about 45 grams. Everyone over age 65 should attempt to drink two liters, or about nine 8-ounce glasses, of liquid per day.
Various Boost products offer several ounces of protein, according to Boost.com. Boost Plus offers 14 grams of protein, while Boost High Protein contains 15 grams.
