Journey Bariatric All-in-One Multiformula Capsules - 30 day bottle
A to Zinc Bariatric Panel of Vitamins & Minerals including B's, Specialized Albion Calcium and Iron that does not block calcium uptake.
A recent study showed 98% of bariatric patients at 24 months post op had 2 or more nutrient deficiencies. Another study revealed more than 60% of bariatric post ops did not take vitamins - with taste and forgetfulness cited as reasons. Widespread nutrient complications of bariatric surgery may be largely avoided by simply taking good vitamins. Compliance has remained an issue for years; taking bariatric supplements has been 6 to 8 bottles of chewable tablets to be taken at different times on a daily schedule. Eliminate taste as an excuse for not taking vitamins and switch to capsules.
"When we took on creating a better bariatric vitamin system, we knew it had to be an All in One that was easy to take at my desk during a busy day. I have been open about having a terrible time keeping up with vitamins and have suffered a fracture and loss of teeth due to deficiencies. Journey Multivitamin Capsules replaces the separate bottles of multi, iron, B12, calcium, B1 and D that were on my desk.* When my phone alarm goes off, even if I am eating or drinking or talking on the phone, I grab Journey Capsules and take them right then as I don't have to give a thought to chewing them. For the first time in years I don't miss a day." - Susan Maria Leach, 2001 RNY and author Before & After

The benefits of bariatric surgery are tempered by the high frequency of nutritional complications that affect the majority of those who have a procedure - food intake is restricted and what is consumed cannot be broken down for essential nutrients to be extracted. This leads to vitamin and mineral deficiencies, fatigue and hair loss.
Bariatric patients often fall short in taking supplements because it is hard to know what is really needed, multiple bottles of supplements are expensive and taking a handful of pills timed throughout the day is inconvenient to the point most patients donít do it. Journey believes that post ops are more able to follow a bariatric vitamin schedule if itís simple.
