Bariatric Vitamin Comparison Chart
Here is a bariatric vitamin comparison chart to help you decide what nutritional supplements you will need and after your weight loss surgery.
There are traditionally 3 different types of Bariatric Vitamins:
- Traditional. You know the ones. These are the hard ones made by most companies. They can vary in size and the number needed to take per day and usually take with a glass of water. The downside to a traditional bariatric multivitamin is they can be very hard for your body to break down and absorb into your system. It can be totally reliant on the amount of acid in your stomach. Recent studies have shown that the majority of these vitamins can “pass” through your body without ever being absorbed.
- Chewable /melts. These are marketed to people who do not like to have to take a handful of vitamins per day and are easy to take and taste great. The downside of the bariatric chewables or bariatric melts is first the unneeded and unwanted calories that come with the additives that make these taste great. The whole goal of weight loss surgery is to lose weight so why add extra calories to your day because of the vitamin you are taking. The other is the amount of actual nutrients you are getting with these is usually very low compared to other multivitamin choices.
- Liquid Vitamins. The obvious appeal to liquid vitamins is they are rapidly absorbed into your system. They major downside to liquid multivitamins is the taste. Most users have a hard time swallowing this stuff. And if you add to your favorite beverage all you are going to do is ruin the taste of your favorite beverage!
This is what makes Bari Liquid Force by Universal Body Labs different. It is a liquid bariatric vitamin in a quick dissolve vegetarian capsule. It can be taken with or without food and research has shown it breaks down and up to 98% of nutrients enter your system with 3 minutes.
