Enercal Plus ®
Nutrition for life
The need for balanced nutrition applies to all people, even if you are in the best of health. At Wyeth, we understand that good nutrition leads to good health. So we developed ENERCAL Plus®, a scientifically balanced nutritional supplement that supplies you with flexible reconstitution of either 1.0 kcal/ mL or 1.5 kcal/ mL of calories which is the highest calorie concentration currently available in the market. Enercal Plus® also provides balanced caloric distribution for Carbohydrate, Protein and Fat as per recommended by the Malaysian Recommended Nutrition Index (MRNI).
Why do I need supplements?
Good question. Let us examine a few examples of people and situations where nutrition can be compromised, and then show you how nutritional supplements can help you or someone you know to be healthier and stronger.
Active individuals usually have inadequate caloric intake. Your body may find it difficult to consume so many calories in 1 day. As a result, you may experience loss of lean body tissue as all your energy is used to fuel your daily activities and not for the synthesis of tissue protein.*

In today's fast-paced lifestyle, working individuals are prone to neglect proper diet or regular meals. High reliance on fast foods often results in high consumption of saturated fats, cholesterol, simple sugars and sodium. Those who skip meals are also certain to miss out on vital nutrients for their bodies. This is why Wyeth developed ENERCAL Plus® as a daily mealtime supplement to ensure a balanced and appropriate intake of necessary nutrients, especially when a meal itself is inadequate.
ENERCAL Plus® is also beneficial to those who are underweight. In such cases, supplementation with ENERCAL Plus® can help to improve the nutritional health of these adults. By no means should you skip your regular meals!
The effects of aging have potential to cause nutritional deficits and this can make the elderly susceptible to infectious diseases. The elderly face many obstacles to good dietary habits, from medical conditions (arthritis, heart failure, angina- affects ability to shop/ prepare meals) to dental problems (absent teeth or ill-fitting dentures- loss of appetite). Chronic illnesses and the resultant medication can also affect their metabolic rate, resulting in poor absorption and metabolism of nutrients.
The existence of such conditions underlines the importance of nutritional supplements for the elderly. ENERCAL Plus® easy-to-prepare and easy to consume formula makes it a perfect nutrient supplement for them.
