Appetite and cancer treatment

If cancer treatment leaves you without an appetite, try Purition to get some of the essential calories and nutrients you need.

Though you might not feel like eating, it’s important to do whatever you can to maintain your calorie, protein and fluid intake during and after your cancer treatment. It may well be easier for you to drink something like Purition rather than to eat something.

In a nutshell, we’re here to help.

Helping people throughout their cancer treatment

During chemotherapy, radiation and other cancer treatments, a lot of patients lose or experience changes to their sense of taste and a loss of appetite. This can be an unwelcome downside that can make getting the calories and nutrients you need difficult.

However, food is a big part of recovery and not enjoying or eating food can lead to a number of nutritional complications – for more information, visit Living with cancer: how to eat well | WCRF by World Cancer Research Fund and download their excellent recipe booklet here.

Here at Purition we want to help, which is why we are offering a free sample/s to anyone in this position who is struggling to eat or with their appetite.

Purition is a nutritious source of calories with no nasty ingredients. Customers going through cancer treatment have told us that they found Purition particularly convenient, and easier to eat during treatment, and that they enjoyed both the natural taste and variety of flavours on offer.

If you’ve not tried Purition before and you’d like to, please email us to request a free sample.

‘I love Purition shakes. Tried a couple of other protein shakes but have a funny taste. Purition tastes wonderful. Love coffee and walnut, beetroot, macadamia and vanilla… in fact most of them. I always have one for breakfast, sets me up for the day. After chemo and radiotherapy for oesophagus cancer, I find it difficult to eat so have lost a lot of weight. Purition gives me all the vitamins, minerals, protein and fibre I need to keep my weight stable. Can’t praise it enough. Very low price and delivery next day even in all this chaos! Thank you team behind the scene, your customer service is impeccable.’

Guidance notes

Purition is intended to be consumed in addition to your diet and not as your only food. Please consult your doctor or specialist dietician if in any doubt.

According to the Mayo Clinic,

“During illness, treatment or recovery, your need for calories and protein may be greater than usual. Protein is important for growth, health and repair of your body. If you’ve been ill, you may need extra protein.”
