Can Bariatric/Weight Loss Surgery Vitamins & Supplements Benefit My Healing
Following weight loss surgery,
patients experience nutritional deficiencies in calcium, iron, B-12, and other
nutrients due to difficulty of absorbing them because the patient’s smaller
gastric pouch produces reduced amounts of the stomach acid and digestive enzymes
needed for proper absorption of these nutrients. Most available forms of calcium,
iron, B-12, and other nutrients require stomach acid for absorption. For this
reason, gastric bypass surgery patients often need to find nutritional vitamins supplements
in forms that can be absorbed by their gastrointestinal system.
Vitamins & Supplements offered in the Bariatric Surgery/Weight Loss Surgery
Store have been developed specifically for the needs of both pre-operative and
post-operative Bariatric/weight loss surgery patients. Supplements such as the
Multi-Formula, Calcium Citrate, Sublingual B-12, and Chewable Iron are taken
before and following surgery (as well as on a long-term daily basis for general
wellness) to promote better health prior and following surgery, shorten recovery
time, improve the absorption of key support cardiovascular and bone health,
protect against kidney stones, promote healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels,
help maintain lean body mass, and address ketosis breath and general unpleasant
breath odor that can occur.
