Bariatric Vitamins Q&A

What are bariatric vitamins?

Bariatric vitamins are nutritional supplements you need after a gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, or other type of weight loss surgery.

These vitamins are important for maintaining optimum health following your procedure because many types of bariatric surgery change how your body digests foods. These changes affect how much of the essential nutrients your body absorbs from your diet.

Since you can’t absorb all of the nutrients you need to support your health and weight loss, you need to take supplemental vitamins and minerals every day in addition to eating a well-balanced diet.

What bariatric vitamins are available?

To ensure you’re getting optimal nutrition daily, the Houston Weight Loss bariatric specialists offer Bariatric Fusion® vitamins for sale in the office to support healthy weight loss and your long-term health, including multivitamins and:

  • Iron
  • Zinc
  • Copper
  • Vitamin C
  • Calcium citrate

The Houston Weight Loss bariatric surgeons can determine which vitamins you need to take based on your overall health, your medical history, and the type of bariatric surgery you have.

How long do I need to take bariatric vitamins after weight loss surgery?

There are several Bariatric Fusion vitamin options available to accommodate your postsurgical needs. You can expect to take the recommended vitamins for the rest of your life after undergoing weight loss surgery.

In general, you’ll need to take two multivitamins in the morning and two in the evening. You’ll also need to take a probiotic daily. A probiotic helps to improve your immunity, your metabolism, and your digestive process.

The vitamins are available in a variety of forms including liquids, chewables, and once-per-day capsules. Each of the vitamins and probiotics meets your needs following bariatric surgery to support your weight loss goals and general health. They’re scientifically formulated to prevent micronutrient deficiencies, taste great, and remain affordable.

In addition to taking the recommended vitamins, you also need to continue getting daily physical activity and eating a healthy, nutritious diet to protect your health and maximize the benefits of weight loss surgery.
