GSure is a plant-based complete and balanced nutrition beverage. It is specially formulated with 18 types of premium grains and added with 28 types of essential vitamins and minerals, CaHMB, Omega 3 & 6, Prebiotics and Lutein. GSure is suitable for people with lactose intolerant, because it consists of plant based protein instead of whey protein. Unlike whey protein, plant based protein doesn’t cause lactose intolerance effects such as gas and stomach bloating, it doesn’t consist of lactose which causes lactose intolerance among 90% of Malaysian population. Lactose intolerance occurs when your small intestine doesn’t produce enough lactase enzyme to digest lactose. Normally, lactase turns lactose into two simple sugars known as glucose and galactose which are absorbed into the bloodstream through the intestinal lining.
Besides, GSure can act as meal replacement due to its low GI value. GSure ensures a slow rise of blood sugar level because the foods are digested and absorbed at a slower rate. According to research, consuming one meal with a low GI (glycemic index) increases gut hormone production which leads to suppression of appetite and the feeling of fullness. GSure ensures one is alert throughout the day by providing sufficient energy required. 60g of Gsure provides 396kcal which is about the calories of one meal. It is nutrient dense which contains 901.6mg of calcium, 586.9mg of phosphorus, 2g of HMB and CaHMB. The main function of phosphorus is in the formation of bones and teeth. It is also needed for the body to make protein for the growth, maintenance, and repair of cells and tissues. The daily intake of calcium and phosphorus needed by adults are averagely 1000mg and 700mg each, 1 serving of GSure provides us with an adequate amount of minerals per day. Therefore, GSure may act as a healthy supplement as it consists of complete nutrition for all categories of people.
After age 50, bone starts to break down and bone loss often accelerates. Hence, elderly people need more calcium as compared to young adults. Having sufficient calcium intake in the diet is essential in preventing osteoporosis and loss of bone mass. This is because as we age, our body may reabsorb calcium and phosphate from bones instead of keeping these minerals in the bones. This makes our bones weaker. When this process reaches a certain stage, it is called osteoporosis. Many times, a person will fracture a bone before they even know they have bone loss.

Osteoporosis is most common in women and men aged 50 above. However, the risk of women getting osteoporosis is higher than men. This is because women generally have smaller, thinner bones than men have and because women can lose bone tissue rapidly in the first 4 to 8 years after menopause due to the sharp decline in production of the hormone estrogen. Estrogen has a protective effect on bone. Women usually go through menopause between age 45 and 55. After menopause, bone loss in women greatly exceeds that in men. However, by age 65, women and men tend to lose bone tissue at the same rate. Although men do not undergo the equivalent of menopause, production of the male hormone testosterone may decrease, and this can lead to increased bone loss and a greater risk of developing osteoporosis.
HMB plays an important role in bone and muscle health. It is best known for supporting skeletal muscle function and countering age-related muscle loss. The recommended dosage of HMB is three grams per day for average-size individuals.
By drinking GSure everyday, it ensures an adequate intake of all the essential nutrients needed.
