Calcium deficiency is often an issue after several forms of weight loss surgery. The nutrition experts at Bariatric Advantage have been meeting the micronutrient needs of weight loss surgery patients for over a decade and offer several products to combat this problem. To make their versatile calcium crystals, the nutrition experts at Bariatric Advantage combine calcium gluconate and calcium lactate. This combination, known as calcium lactate-gluconate, is one of the most soluble and bio-available forms of calcium on the market.
This process yields an incredible powder that combines high solubility and neutral taste to easily blend with a wide variety of drinks and foods to help you get the calcium your body needs every day.
Calcium requires vitamin D3 for absorption.
ASMBS guidelines call for 1,200-1,500 mg calcium per day for patients of all bariatric procedure types, in divided doses with no more than 500 mg being consumed at once.
Calcium is a critical nutrient for bones and teeth– 99% of calcium is found in teeth and bones. It also plays an important role in tissue health and nervous system health, along with muscle contraction.
