By Thorne Research: vitamin/mineral formula for bariatric surgery patients
- Healing requires specific nutrients
- Most obese individuals are nutrient deficient
- Provides a full array of essential nutrients
- Includes nutrients often deficient in this population
- Activated B-vitamins for best bioavailability
- Highest quality with no magnesium stearate, flavors, colors, or preservatives
No matter which bariatric procedure is performed, the objective is to absorb fewer macro-nutrients than the body needs, which achieves the desired weight loss. However, this also causes decreased intake and/or absorption of micro-nutrients that are essential for the healing process and for normal metabolic activity. Bariatric Nutrients from Thorne Research provides a complete array of vitamins and minerals necessary for normal metabolic activity as well as the stresses placed on the body by bariatric surgery and the subsequent post-surgery weight loss.*
At Thorne Research we believe everybody needs to take a multivitamin-mineral supplement to augment nutrients obtained from the diet. This is especially true for the obese population. Obesity poses a unique problem in that obese individuals are often deficient in a number of vitamins and minerals pre-operatively; therefore it is imperative that bariatric surgery patients take a daily multiple.* Bariatric Nutrients includes absorbable and bioavailable vitamins and minerals, especially those nutrients most often deficient in bariatric surgery patients, including iron, vitamin B12, folate, and vitamin D. Bariatric Nutrients also contains a spectrum of antioxidants, including glutathione, Coenzyme Q10, flavonoids, and R-lipoic acid. Pure trans-resveratrol has been shown to support normal metabolic activity, liver function, and fat metabolism.
Bariatric Nutrients contains the highest quality nutrients without any unnecessary ingredients like sugars, colors, or preservatives. Bariatric Nutrients also doesn't contain any hidden ingredients like lactose, which is present in many other vitamin supplements, or magnesium stearate, a saturated fat and the most common excipient in nutritional supplements. Magnesium stearate can negatively affect the absorption of nutrients in the normal individual. In those with a surgically altered gastrointestinal tract this decrease in nutrient absorption may be amplified.
