Bariatric Advantage®MAGNESIUM & VITAMIN D contains magnesium which contributes to the maintenance of strong bones and is beneficial for the muscles3, in combination with
vitamin D3. In addition, folate supports the psychological function for instance in moments of stress1 and folate, magnesium, vit. B6 and B12 help in case of fatigue2.
Causes of MAGNESIUM deficiency?
Up to 80% of the population is magnesium deficient. Causes are: insufficient magnesium supply through nutrition, stress situations and taking antacids (PPI’s), as a result of which magnesium from food is absorbed more difficultly. Magnesium naturally occurs in chocolate, nuts, white beans, spinach, artichoke or tuna. The recommended daily intake of Mg is 300-400 mg for adults. Supply through the diet is estimated at 200-300 mg, so often insufficient.
Causes of VITAMIN D deficiency?
Only a small percentage of vitamin D is consumed via food (20 %), the rest is produced through exposure to sun beams (especially UVB radiation). Since our exposure to the sun is often insufficient, vitamin D shortage is very probable. A food supplement with vitamin D is thus recommended, especially after bariatric surgery. Vitamin D deficiencies are very common among people who have undergone bariatric surgery. That is because vitamin D is stored mainly in the fat mass, as a result of which these people run a great risk of having a vitamin D deficiency already before bariatric surgery.
Why Bariatric Advantage® MAGNESIUM & VITAMIN D?
Complete formula: one tablet contains 900 mg of magnesium glycerophosphate, a particular magnesium salt which is excellently tolerated by the stomach and the intestines, supplemented with cofactors such as active B-vitamins (vit. B6, B9 (folate, Metafolin®) and B12), taurine and vitamin D3. These cofactors work in synergy with magnesium. The advantage of active B-vitamins is that they are immediately available for effect in the body. Vitamin D ensures that magnesium is stored in the body longer and conversely magnesium activates vitamin D.
Bariatric Advantage® MAGNESIUM & VITAMIN D is suited for everyone who has undergone bariatric surgery.
- 2 tablets daily or adapted to individual needs
- For optimal absorption, spread the tablets out over the day
- Do not take the tablets at the same time as calcium chewable tablets to ensure optimal absorption of all minerals.
Magnesium is absorbed by the body 1 to 2 hours after intake.
There’s no risk of overdosing on magnesium, except in case of severe renal insufficiency. Generally, a magnesium surplus is quickly eliminated through one’s urine.
Yes, large amounts of calcium that’re taken simultaneously with magnesium can interfere with the absorption of magnesium. Thus, don’t take calcium chewable tablets and magnesium at the same time. For instance, take the magnesium tablets during a meal and the calcium chewable tablets between different meals. To ensure an optimal absorption of both minerals, it’s better to take them at least 2 hours apart.
Bariatric Advantage® Magnesium & Vitamin D contains magnesium glycerophosphate, is not laxative and is well-tolerated. Therefore, Bariatric Advantage® Magnesium & Vitamin D® doesn’t cause cramps and/or diarrhoea.
Vitamin D ensures that magnesium stays in the body longer and, conversely, magnesium ensures that vitamin D is activated. Vitamin D is equally important for the immune system and for strong bones and teeth.
