This high-potency multiple vitamin/mineral supplement is formulated for the special nutritional needs of people who have had weight loss surgery. Maintaining adequate nutritional intake from food alone is often not possible after surgery. Reduced food intake and poor absorption can result in deficiencies that can jeopardize health.
It is imperative to begin taking supplemental nutrients upon your return home after surgery and to continue taking them throughout your life. However, studies show that standard multivitamins or children's chewable multivitamins do not adequately meet the enhanced requirements or compensate or absorption problems after surgery. This daily supplement overcomes these issues by providing extra-strength amounts of nutrients in forms that are readily absorbed and efficiently used by the body.
This product contains:
- 28 essential vitamins, minerals, and trace elements
- Higher potency amounts compared to standard multivitamins
- More complete "families" of nutrients for vitamins A and E for balance and safety
- Higher vitamin D than regular multivitamins to support bones and general health
- Folate, B12, and other B vitamins in bioactive forms that are more readily utilized
- Essential minerals in easy-to-absorb forms that are gentle on the digestive system
- Extra iron in a well-tolerated form that does need stomach acid for absorption
4 capsules daily with food
