Our Multi-Complete Restrictive 18 contains all of the vitamins and minerals in a single dose option, patients
just need to add calcium. This one dose daily bariatric multivitamin is the only bariatric multivitamin available
that provides a lower dose of iron for those patients who do not need higher levels and can maintain normal
iron levels on a maintenance dose. This integrated formula provides maximum bioavailability as we carefully
selected each form of vitamin and mineral to enhance interaction and absorption. MC R 18 is available in either
a chewable (Black Cherry flavor) or capsule.
Water-Miscible Vitamins A, D and E (WM): We utilize dry, water-miscible forms of vitamins A, D and E to further enhance absorption. This means that these nutrients do not need to be taken with fat to optimize absorption, unlike many fat-soluble vitamins included in other brands.
Chelated Minerals: Mineral-Chelation means "attaching to." By chelating our minerals to an amino acid (the building block of protein), we have increased the likelihood that these minerals will be absorbed in a low-acidic environment.
The only single dose bariatric multivitamin with a lower iron level appropriate for men and post-menopausal women that do not suffer from low iron levels.
If you are experiencing persistent nausea, vomiting, GI upset, or other symptoms contact your healthcare provider immediately.
Patients should follow the instructions of their bariatric surgeon regarding proper supplementation. Proper supplementation should be viewed as an individualized regimen based on each patient’s individual medical history, laboratory studies, and current medication use.
All iron dosages are listed as elemental levels.
Our formula utilizes a 50/50 blend of methylcobalamin and cyanocobalamin to optimize absorption and prevent deficiencies.
By blending pre-formed (retinyl palmitate) and beta-carotene to make up our vitamin A, we are providing the safest and most effective approach available for this key vitamin. This blend allows your body to regulate its intake of vitamin A, absorbing only what it needs to function properly and excrete the rest.
It is important to keep in mind that the ASMBS guidelines will require additional calcium supplementation. This product may NOT be taken at the same time as calcium to prevent absorption interference. Allow a 2-hour window.
It is important to look for a product manufactured in a GMP Certified facility. A GMP Certified facility is one that has proven to have good manufacturing practices. This is a pharmaceutical certification that ensures products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards.
