Bariatric Vitamin Comparison Chart

After bariatric surgery, you must take vitamins for the rest of your life. Serious illness can result from non-compliance with your vitamin and mineral guidelines. Mood, energy, and focus can also suffer from a lack of proper vitamins after bariatric surgery. Blood tests are required every three months for your first year after surgery and annually after that.

Why You Need a Bariatric Formulated Multivitamin:

. Standard over the counter (OTC) vitamin brands are formulated to meet the nutritional needs of the general population.

. As a bariatric patient, your body requires a much higher level of 13 micronutrients that OTC brands will not meet; even if you take extra servings.

. Bariatric vitamins and supplements allow your body to function at its full potential and help you avoid malnutrition and vitamin deficiency.

. Not all bariatric brands meet all micronutrient requirements. Choose from the brands recommended on chart on the next page.

. Calcium citrate, Vitamin B complex and probiotics do not need to be a bariatric brand; though they are often better tasting and are higher quality products.
