Persona Nutrition makes it easy to stick to your supplement routine. We customize your plan based on the type of surgery you had, your prescriptions and lifestyle. Supplements arrive in discrete, biodegradable, daily packets for on-the-go convenience.
Our bariatric program is backed by science and supported by our
Medical Advisory Board, including world-renowned bariatric surgeon and
author, Dr. Philip Schauer.
Dr. Philip Schauer, recognized as being the first surgeon to perform laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery, is a member of the Persona Medical Board. He has performed more than 8,000 operations for severe obesity and is known to have handled many of the most difficult bariatric surgery cases in the world.
“Bariatric surgery can alter the absorption of key nutrients. Persona has excellent vitamin and nutrition products that personally address the needs of patients after surgery. I’m pleased to join the Persona team to help create new bariatric-focused products and nutrition programs.”

Our Bariatric Multi was created using the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery's (ASMBS) nutrition guidelines for bariatric procedures. Our multi contains the active form of vitamins to ensure optimal absorption, such as methylated folate. We also use Calcium Citrate, the only recommended form of calcium for bariatric patients, and vitamin K2 for bone health.
Because the BPD/DS procedure bypasses so much of the small intestine, where vitamins and minerals are absorbed, the ASMBS recommends individuals who have had this procedure supplement with additional calcium and vitamin K.
For the rest of your life! Because your digestive system has changed, supplementation is vital to achieving optimal nutrition.
Your body needs time to recover from your surgery. After you have your procedure, your doctor will most likely prescribe you liquid or dissolvable vitamins to take for the first few months. We want to ensure your body is fully recovered before starting a new supplement routine that includes capsules. Don't worry, we won't offer you enteric coated capsules or difficult-to-digest tablets.
Patients who have had bariatric surgery typically have higher iron needs, but they vary. Our multivitamin does not contain iron for that reason, and we will include a separate iron supplement in your packs if you need it.
