The importance of a vitamin B12 supplement after gastric bypass and certain other forms of weight loss surgery cannot be overstated. The absorption of Vitamin B12 relies heavily on a healthy, intact gastrointestinal system. Contact time in the stomach and upper region of the small intestines is particularly important. As a result, many individuals are prone to vitamin B12 deficiency after their procedure. This sublingual supplement from Bariatric Advantage is formulated to provide good protection against B12 deficiency, and can be an excellent alternative to or addition to periodic injections.
Bariatric Advantage B12 Speedy Melts deliver 1000 micrograms (mcg) of high-quality B12 (as methylcobalamin) in a fast-melting formula. The 100% lactose-free B12 supplement is designed to dissolve quickly in your mouth before being swallowed. The B12 SpeedyMelts formula also incorporates 200 mcg of folic acid. Vitamin B12 and folic acid are complementary nutrients that support one another’s functions. They are frequently combined due to their collaborative, dynamic relationship.

The 200 mcg of folic acid in this tablet also means that patients who are or wish to become pregnant can get a full milligram (1000 mcg) of folic acid when they take this product together with any of our multivitamins. 100 Percent Lactose-Free. Some percentage of patients who have undergone weight loss surgery such as gastric bypass or duodenal switch develop lactose intolerance. Others have heard about this potential problem and avoid lactose-containing foods and products without a confirmed problem. The vast majority of B12 products contain lactose for one of two reasons: 1) the tablet itself contains lactose or 2) the B12 is titrated in lactose. The latter may not show in the ingredient listing, and may cause symptoms for unidentifiable reasons. Our B12 is 100 percent lactose-free. There is no lactose in the base and the B12 ingredient is titrated in calcium. Thus, this is the best choice formula for those who may need to avoid lactose. Great Taste. We consistently get feedback from customers on the great taste of Bariatric Advantage products, especially their B12. Great taste fosters compliance, and makes the process of taking daily vitamins more pleasant.
