Congratulations on the beginning of your weight loss journey! This post-operative starter kit will provide all of the vitamins/minerals and protein needed for the first few weeks after surgery; iron is not included and will have to be taken separately.

2 Servings or 2 Single Serve Packs or as directed
Appropriate for: All Patients as Directed by a Physician
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.
Excess vitamin A intake can lead to birth defects and a possible risk of osteoporosis. if you are pregnant, or considering becoming pregnant, consult your healthcare provider.
If you are experiencing persistent nausea, vomiting, GI upset, or other symptoms contact your healthcare provider immediately.
Very low calorie diets (below 400 Calories per day) may cause serious illness or death. Do Not use for Weight Reduction in such diets without medical supervision. Not for use by infants, children, or pregnant or nursing women.
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.
This product is as close as a bariatric patient can get to an “all in one” supplement without causing absorption interference. Iron is not included in this product and will have to be added separately if recommended by a physician.
Calcium dosage is listed as elemental level.
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.
One serving (2 scoops) = one chewable multivitamin + 600 mg calcium + 25 g whey protein isolate
