What does the "all-in-1" formula of Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal contain?

One serving of Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal corresponds to one chewable tablet, 2 capsules or serving of Bariatric Advantage® Multi, 2 chewable tablets of Bariatric Advantage® Calcium Citrate and 1.5 servings of Bariatric Advantage® Whey. Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal also contains fibres to facilitate intestinal transit.

Can the intake of Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal be spread out over the day?

Yes. 1 serving of Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal corresponds to 3 measuring spoons, to be diluted in water or skimmed milk, and to be kept in the fridge. These servings can be spread out throughout the day.

Can Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal be taken as a meal replacement?

Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal is rich in proteins (30 g protein per serving but low in fats and carbohydrates and therefore not recommended as a meal replacement. By contrast, thanks to its specific composition, Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal is the most complete product for bariatric patients to compensate for vitamin, mineral and protein deficiencies before and after surgery.

I do not eat enough protein. Can I take several servings of Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal so as to achieve a minimum of 60 g protein a day?

One serving of Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal contains the recommended daily amount of vitamins and minerals, so it is not really advisable to increase the number of servings. To meet your daily need of protein, it is best to supplement your diet with one or more servings of Bariatric Advantage® Whey. Always ask your doctor for advice.

Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal contains magnesium. I therefore wonder whether it may be taken with milk. Is the absorption of magnesium not hindered by the presence of calcium?

Certain types of magnesium that are taken with milk may cause competition with calcium, resulting in reduced magnesium absorption. A good calcium/magnesium ratio would be 2:1. However, the magnesium present in Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal is in the form of magnesium bisglycinate, so it will be properly absorbed and not enter into competition with calcium. Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal may therefore be mixed with milk. Ask your doctor for advice if you want to know more.
