What Are Bariatric Supplements and Vitamins?

Bariatric supplements are specifically formulated vitamins and minerals catering to the unique needs of individuals post-bariatric surgery.

After weight loss surgery, bariatric patients will need to supplement their diet with over-the-counter vitamins and minerals for the rest of their life. These typically include a multivitamin, Vitamin B12, Calcium, Vitamin D, and Iron.

If you do not take vitamins as directed and follow the nutritional assessment lab schedule, you will put yourself at risk for severe and even life-threatening medical problems due to abnormal vitamin and mineral levels.

Our supplement store offers an extensive selection, including:

  • Complete Multivitamins: Comprehensive blends targeting various nutritional requirements.
  • Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid: Essential to sustain nerve health.
  • Proteins: Essential for muscle repair and maintenance post-surgery.
  • Calcium Citrate: Calcium supplement is vital for bone health, especially after weight loss procedures.
  • Iron: To combat deficiencies commonly associated with these surgeries.
  • Gut Health: Supporting digestive system functionality post-operation.
  • Collagen: Aiding in skin elasticity and tissue repair.
  • Hair, Skin, and Nails: Specific formulas for cosmetic concerns.

Can Anyone Take Bariatric Vitamins?

While bariatric vitamins are primarily designed for post-bariatric surgery patients, they can also benefit individuals seeking essential nutrients in easily absorbable forms. However, consulting with healthcare professionals is crucial before starting any supplement regimen.

The Best Supplements According to Surgery

Different weight loss surgeries might require varying supplement strategies. Dr. Blake Movitz at Detroit Weight Loss Center can offer personalized advice based on your surgery type to ensure optimal health. Some examples of vitamins required after bariatric surgery include the following:

  • Sleeve Gastrectomy and Gastric Bypass:  After sleeve gastrectomy or gastric bypass surgery, you will likely need to take multivitamins that include thiamine, folic acid, B12, Vitamin D, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Copper, Zinc, Iron and Calcium. 
  • Duodenal Switch: After a duodenal switch, you will likely need to take a complete multivitamin that includes thiamine, folic acid, and B12, as well as higher doses of Vitamin D, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Copper, Zinc, Iron and Calcium.

Why Buy Bariatric Supplements?

Bariatric surgeries often lead to reduced absorption of essential nutrients. Bariatric multivitamins and other bariatric supplements are specifically formulated to address these deficiencies and promote better health.  Often, these formulations reduce the number of pills needed to meet the daily recommended doses.
