Our calcium supplements provide the most complete bone health formula available in a bariatric supplement, come in a variety of tastes and textures and meet the ASMBS standards of calcium supplementation after weight loss surgery. 48% of patients experience calcium deficiency after bariatric surgery.1
Calcium is the most abundant mineral found in the body. Almost all calcium is stored in our bones and teeth, which makes it critical in building and maintaining our bone and dental health. Calcium citrate is the preferred form of calcium to take after bariatric surgery because it can be taken without food and can be absorbed without the presence of stomach acid.
When opting for a calcium supplement, make sure it contains Vitamin D to help enhance absorption. Vitamin D helps with the absorption of calcium by maintaining adequate serum levels. There are two main forms of Vitamin D; D2 and D3. Vitamin D3 is the active form, making it the preferred choice and the only form Celebrate uses.Parrot J, Frank L, Dilks R, et al.
