Some patients may require additional zinc and copper supplementation following bariatric surgery. Zinc and copper should always be taken in the proper ratio. Celebrate’s Zinc plus Copper capsule contains 25 mg of zinc and 2 mg of copper, which falls within the proper ratio. Getting your additional zinc and copper is easy with our small easy to swallow capsule.
Small Capsule – With our small, easy to swallow capsule, it will be easier than ever to take your thiamin.
Chelated Minerals - Chelation simply means "attaching to." By chelating our mineral forms to an amino acid, we have increased the likelihood that these minerals will be absorbed in a low-acid environment.
Please speak with your surgeon and/or dietitian before taking zinc as too much zinc can be dangerous/toxic.
It may be recommended to get your (fasted) lab levels of zinc checked before starting this product.
Do not take for more than 3 months without re-checking lab levels and speaking to your doctor.
While a dosage of more than 25 mg/day may be recommended by your surgeon and/or dietitian, it may be beneficial to start with 1 capsule per day and slowly increase to the recommended dosage to minimize the risk of nausea.
If taking more than 1 capsule per day, it is recommended to space them throughout the day by at least 2 hours.
Taking this supplement with a good source of protein (drink or food), may increase absorption.
Do not take at the same time as high-fiber foods or other vitamins and supplements.
* Patients should follow the instructions of their bariatric surgeon regarding proper supplementation. Proper supplementation should be viewed as an individualized regimen based upon each patient’s individual medical history, laboratory studies, and current medication use.
