New Calcium Chew Flavors for Bone Health

New Calcium Chew Flavors for Bone Health

Jul 20, 2021 Alex Brecher

Staying nourished can be a challenge after bariatric surgery, with calcium being one of the most commonly deficient minerals. Lactose intolerance and strict diets can make it difficult to get enough calcium each day, so a calcium supplement can be necessary for preserving bone health. 

BariatricPal Calcium Chews are formulated to provide recommended amounts of calcium, and their great taste and convenience can make taking your calcium an easy-peasy part of your post-op diet. Wild Grape and Belgium Chocolate Caramel Chews are our most recent concoctions to keep you healthy and happy.

Calcium and Vitamin D

Each BariatricPal Calcium Chew has 15 calories, no sugar, and 500 mg of calcium. Taking three chews daily can help you hit the ASMBS recommendations for calcium after bariatric surgery. Getting enough calcium is necessary for maintaining bone density and preventing osteoporosis, or high risk for fractures, later in life. The calcium in these chews is from calcium citrate, which you can take with or without food.

Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium, not to mention aiding in proper immune function and heart health. Each serving of BariatricPal Calcium Chews has 60 mcg of vitamin D.

Probiotic Benefits

Probiotics are bacteria that live in the gut and may have health benefits such as normalizing the immune response against certain viruses and reducing bloating and diarrhea associated with antibiotic use. A favorable balance of gut bacteria has even been linked to having a healthier body weight. BariatricPal Calcium Chews have 250 million CFU ofBacillus coagulans, which is a strain of bacteria found in fermented foods such as kimchi, sauerkraut, and yogurt. 

Wild Grape

The BariatricPal Store is super excited about our new flavors. Wild Grape Calcium Chews are sweet and smooth, with a burst of flavor in every chew. 

The trouble with fresh grapes is that they are high in sugar and twice as high in calories per cup as, say, strawberries. A cup of grapes has 23 grams of sugar, which bumps them up near the top of glycemic load lists, and 100 calories. Wild Grape Calcium Chews offer the sweet burst of grapes without any sugar.

Belgium Chocolate Caramel

Another decadent flavor to try is Belgium Chocolate Caramel. These chews are rich and chocolatey, as well as sweet, buttery, and luscious. Still, they have only a fraction of the 100 calories in a chocolate truffle, and none of the 11 grams of sugar. That is right: you can help yourself to chocolate caramel three times a day in the name of health.

Other flavors of BariatricPal Calcium Chews are Strawberry Watermelon Twist and French Vanilla Caramel. All flavors are available in 90, 180, and 270-count bags, or enough for 30, 60, or 90 days. There is no reason not to get your calcium every day!

BariatricPal Calcium Chews are just one of the products we have in stock to make it easy to follow doctor’s orders when losing weight and after bariatric surgery. The BariatricPal Store has all kinds of other bariatric vitamins and dietary supplements, not to mention protein shakes, bars, and meals. Be sure to stop by to see what can make your weight loss journey easier, healthier, and more delicious!
