What does BariMelts® B12 do for the body?
According to The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) guidelines, up to 20% of patients post-weight loss surgery become deficient in vitamin B12 often due to food intolerances or restricted intake of protein and vitamin B12-containing foods. BariMelts® B12 is key in reducing the risk of megaloblastic anemia, a condition marked by lack of blood and subsequent weakness and tiredness. In this way, B12 may be used to prevent fatigue and support energy levels. B12 is essential for red blood cell and DNA development. B12 also plays a role in neurological function and supports mental clarity.
Why is BariMelts® B12 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. Methylcobalamin is an active form of B12 whereas cyanocobalamin is not and must be broken down by the body before any benefits are seen. Methylcobalamin is a more natural form of B12 whereas cyanocobalamin is a synthetic form.
