What does BariMelts® Calcium do for the body?
The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) recommends that all post-weight loss surgery patients should take calcium supplementation along with vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 enhances the absorption of calcium, and magnesium helps the body break down both of these vitamins for use in the body.
Calcium, vitamin D3, and magnesium work together in the body to support:
- Healthy bones and teeth and therefore helping to reduce the risk of osteoporosis
- Muscle function and nerve transmission
- Cardiovascular health by helping to control heart rhythm and blood pressure
Why is BariMelts® B1 better than other brands?
The BariMelts® delivery system is great for patients who have undergone bariatric surgery as it dissolves in the mouth and makes the vitamins available for absorption before they reach the stomach. Since the vitamins dissolve in the mouth, the tablet does not take up space in the stomach and allows you to eat a true meal. Some patients post-surgery may have difficulty swallowing and therefore this dosage form would help with that as well. BariMelts® Calcium uses calcium citrate instead of calcium carbonate because studies have shown that the citrate form has superior bioavailably than the carbonate form for bariatric surgery patients. Most calcium supplements contain vitamin D3 but BariMelts® Calcium also includes magnesium. The addition of this essential element serves to increase the absorption and metabolism of both the calcium and vitamin D so that the body can use both of these vitamins more efficiently.
