Welcome to BariatricPal Store!
Save an extra 10% when you order a 6-Month or 180-Day Supply!When you get gastric bypass surgery, you’re dedicating yourself to your long-term health. Follow through on your commitment by going 100%! Along with meeting your basic nutrient needs, the Gastric Band Inner and Outer Strength Patch Pack provides nutrients to keep you strong and healthy inside and out as you lose weight and keep it off.
The gastric band surgery does not interfere with your body’s ability to absorb nutrients from food, but this type of weight loss surgery is a restrictive procedure. Since the gastric band is restrictive, it leads to you eating less food and getting fewer vitamins and minerals from food. You may need vitamin supplements to supplement the vitamins and minerals you get from food and prevent deficiencies.
The gastric band can lead to a high chance of vitamin and mineral deficiencies if you are not careful. Nutrient deficiencies can make you tired and less energized. They can slow your metabolism and keep you from losing as much weight as you deserve. Being deficient in some nutrients can even have long-term effects such as nerve damage and weaker bones.
Don’t risk getting vitamin and mineral deficiencies! If your doctor recommends supplements and you hate swallowing pills or chewing your supplements, try patches instead. Just put on a new patch each day for each of the patches in the Gastric Band Inner and Outer Strength Patch Pack. It has the essential vitamins and minerals that you need each day.
The pack also includes patches to support a strong and healthy body during your weight loss journey. As you lose weight and get more active, use the Glucosamine Chondroitin Patch to give your joints the nutrients they need to regenerate the soft cushioning that helps prevent joint pain and arthritis. With the Anti-Aging Patch, you get a range of antioxidants such as Coenzyme Q10, vitamin C, and resveratrol to fight oxidative damage to your skin and other cells in your body. And the Keep Klear Acne Prevention Patch supports clearer, youthful looking skin with nutrients that fight inflammation and environmental toxins.
The patches have the essential vitamins and minerals your body needs for good health, plus extra amounts of the specific vitamins and minerals that you need after gastric bypass surgery. The Gastric Band Inner and Outer Strength Patch Pack includes all of the patches in our Gastric Band Patch Pack plus extra patches to support a strong and healthy body as you lose weight. You will receive a 6-month supply of:

Easy To Apply: Simply place the patch anywhere on your skin where it is dry, clean and hairless. The shoulder, the back, and the upper buttock are particularly good locations to ensure privacy.

Remove the used patch and apply a new one at the same time each day, placing it on different parts of your body in a revolving cycle. PatchMD patches can be worn during sleep. Avoid using any lotion or cream in the same area as it will inhibit absorption. Patch is not waterproof. It is ok to wear multiple PatchMD patches at a time.
It is not recommended to wear B12 Energy Plus at night as it may keep you awake.
