LOWELL, Mass., July 24, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Enlivity, a national medical nutrition pioneer, announces the availability of Healios®, a dietary supplement proven clinically effective in abating mouth pain and discomfort during cancer treatment. Consumers can now purchase Healios online directly from Enlivity.

Healios was developed from research pioneered by Dr. Peter Anderson, currently at the Levine Cancer Institute/Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte, NC. He wanted to find a better solution for relieving the discomfort associated with damage to the epithelial cells lining the mouth, throat, esophagus and digestive tract caused by cancer treatment. Some patients are unable to eat or drink sufficiently to sustain their treatments because the pain is so severe, and before this breakthrough, a temporary fix via morphine IV drip was the best available treatment option.

"We found that glutamine, which is a naturally occurring amino acid, was a key element to helping the epithelial cells to heal," said Anderson.

By combining glutamine with a blend of synergistic ingredients, Healios helps to shuttle nitrogen into the damaged cells to heal more effectively, while still maintaining a good taste and easy-to-swallow formula. The supplement reduces the severity of mouth ulcers, promotes and accelerates healing and alleviates pain, making the proper intake of vital nutrition and fluids much easier.

Patients take Healios up to twice daily during and for two weeks after stress periods for oral and digestive mucosa. Except for those with glutamine sensitivities, Enlivity patients taking Healios have reported no side effects.
