You have enough to think about as you work to make your weight loss surgery a success. You need to hit your protein requirements, stay hydrated, and work your way through the strict pre-op and post-op diets. Your vitamins and minerals are just as important, but who has time and energy make sure you are getting the right bariatric vitamins?
You do, because The BariatricPal Store has made it easy to take your vitamins and figure out which ones you need. We have a vitamin guide to get you started, offer vitamins in all different forms, and suggest convenient packs to get you in and out faster than ever.
A Starting Point: Our BariatricPal Vitamin Guide
Where should you even start when it comes to the task of choosing bariatric vitamins? Our handy Vitamin Guide is a good place! We’ve gathered lists of the most important vitamins, based on ASMBS guidelines, for each of the most common bariatric surgeries, including gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and gastric band (lap-band). There’s also a section for pre-op patients, as well as those who are losing weight without surgery.
Your healthcare provider knows best, so be sure to ask your surgeon or doctor before starting any dietary supplements. We always assume that you are working with your doctor
Any Form You Like
To each his own, including when it comes to taking your vitamins. If you find swallowing pills the most efficient way of getting your vitamins, check out our Vitamin Capsules. Our Liquid Vitamins and Sublingual B12 choices are ideal for liquid pre-op and post-op diets and for those who do not want to swallow their vitamins. Chewable Vitamins are good as you are recovering from surgery and if you love vitamins that taste like delicious treats with flavors such as chocolate, caramel, and strawberry. Vitamin Patches work best if you cannot stand swallowing vitamins in any form.
Vitamin Packs by Surgery Type
A popular solution? The BariatricPal Store has put together handy Vitamin Packs so you can get the vitamins and minerals you need. When you purchase them in a single bundle, you do not have to hand-pick each of the vitamins you need individually. Just choose a pack, run it by your doctor to make sure it meets your needs, and you are all set!
Just go to our Vitamins Page to get started. You can select your type of weight loss surgery, and then look at the options. We have packs for different brands of vitamins, as well as different forms such as patches and easy swallow. Choose a basic pack, or opt for one with extra benefits, such as providing a collection for an active lifestyle or extra strength.
Once you choose your vitamin pack, remember to select the “Subscribe and Save” option. You will have the peace of mind that comes with knowing you will never run out. Your vitamins will arrive automatically at your door each 1, 2, or 3 months as you choose. Plus, you will get a 10% discount on your vitamins!
