Iron deficiency is one of the most common deficiencies seen with patients of all bariatric procedure types and a capsule form is often preferred over chewable tablets for long-term supplementation by some bariatric surgery patients.
ASMBS guidelines call for a minimum of 18 mg of iron per day for patients of all bariatric procedure types and many female patients need 45-60 mg per day.
Vitamin C can help with the absorption of iron. Iron and calcium should be taken two hours apart. Calcium has been shown to reduce iron absorption after a meal by 50-60%.
For those who prefer a capsule to a chewable, Bariatric Advantage's Iron Capsule is a perfect choice. 2 Capsules supply 45 mg of Elemental Iron, which meets current ASMBS guidelines.
One Bariatric Advantage's Iron capsule twice per day provides 45 mg of Elemental Iron from the best tolerated of the ferrous salts, ferrous fumarate. Bariatric Advantage added Vitamin C for additional support and enhanced absorption. For those who prefer a capsule to a chewable Bariatric Advantage Iron Capsule is a perfect choice!
