Taking all of the right vitamins after bariatric surgery is vital to maintain your nutritional needs and aide in weight loss. It can also be confusing. We at Emerge Bariatrics wish to make this process as stress-free as possible for our customers. That's why we have determined what it is exactly you will need to meet the ASMBS Guidelines with our vitamins!
Multivitamin- Your multivitamin will contain high amounts of nutrients that will help to keep you as healthy as possible while providing a delicious, sugar-free flavor!
Iron +C: 45-60mg a day (take 2 hours apart from calcium). Iron is a common deficiency after any bariatric procedure. It is important to take iron along with vitamin C to maximize absorption!
Calcium Citrate +D3: 1500 - 2000 mg per day Take only 500 – 600 mg at a time for best absorption. D3 helps calcium to absorb in your body, which will help to prevent diseases such as Osteoporosis.
B12: 500 mcg (sublingual, nasal spray, or injection). B12 is another common deficiency after bariatric surgery. Emerge offers sublingual b12 which is optimal for absorption after bariatric surgery, and will help to keep your energy levels high!
