Questions about the products of Bariatric Advantage

I don’t eat enough protein. Can I take several servings of Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal so that I get at least 60 grams of protein per day?

1 serving of Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal contains the daily recommended amount of vitamins and minerals. To meet your daily protein needs, it is best to supplement your diet with 1 or more servings of Bariatric Advantage® Whey. Always ask your doctor or nutritionist for advice.

Can Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal be taken with milk as NutriTotal also contains magnesium? Is it true that less magnesium is absorbed when calcium is also present?

Certain types of magnesium that are added to milk can interact with calcium, causing less magnesium to be absorbed. A good calcium-magnesium ratio is 2: 1, however, since magnesium is present in Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal in the form of magnesium bisglycinate, the magnesium is very well absorbed and does not interact with calcium. This means that Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal can safely be mixed with milk. Ask your doctor for advice if you want to know more about this.

Can Bariatric Advantage® Zinc be combined with the daily Bariatric Advantage® Multi?

Yes, after bariatric surgery zinc deficiency often occurs. The combination is safe and often recommended.

Can I take the calcium soft chew together with my multivitamin?

No, to ensure optimal absorption of all minerals, it’s preferable not to take the calcium soft chews along with multivitamins or Bariatrics Advantage Magnesium & Vitamin D. E.g. mornings, afternoons between meals and evenings before going to sleep.

Can I take the calcium soft chews together with my iron supplement?

Is there a difference between the calcium soft chews and the calcium citrate peach-mango chewable tablets and can they be taken alternately?

The calcium soft chews have a different texture than the chewable tablet and are more pleasant to chew. They are individually wrapped and are easy on the go. The formula of the calcium citrate chewable tablets peach-mango contains the same amount of calcium and vitamin D, but it contains also vitamin K2, which further enhances the absorption of calcium in the bones. Tip: Alternate occasionally between both products. It helps to maintain calcium intake. Good luck!
