Below we've broken down the main functions of our Bariatric Multi and the benefits it can provide.
Individuals who have undergone bariatric surgery have unique nutrient requirements. A highly bioavailable multivitamin is essential for life long bariatric health.
Bariatric surgery changes the body''s ability to absorb nutrients, placing bariatric patients at a higher risk for nutrient deficiencies, especially b-vitamins. Supplementing with a bariatric multivitamin prevents deficiencies from developing.
One study demonstrated that the typical amount of vitamin B12 in a standard multivitamin is not nearly enough to prevent vitamin B12 deficiencies after bariatric surgery.
Intended for those at least 4 months post-surgery, our Bariatric Multivitamin includes important nutrients like vitamin B12 which is required for proper nervous system function. We use a whole food source of Vitamin A which helps support healthy teeth, eyes, and skin.
