Science Before Our Products

Science Before Our Products

Science Before Our Products

After bariatric surgery, you commit to living a new, healthy lifestyle. The last thing you need to worry about is taking a handful of pills four times a day.

Our competitors’ supplements require you take a handful of different vitamins up to four times a day, as well as other supplements such as vitamin D3 and B12. Other brands of multivitamins can also be expensive and have a chalky taste and texture.

After realizing there had to be a better way to help bariatric patients maintain weight loss, we decided it was time for a change.

So, we created a revolutionary, once-daily multivitamin specifically designed for bariatric surgery patients. Available as chewable or capsules, our once-daily supplements are tasteless and formulated with low to no additional calories, carbs, or sugars. Our chewable multivitamin is four calories and less than 1 g carbohydrate per tablet.

We Knew There Had to Be a Better Way

Weight loss surgery can be a physically and emotionally demanding experience. When talking to bariatric patients, there were five major complaints we heard again and again:

  • Too many pills to take
  • The pills had to be taken too often
  • The texture is bad
  • The taste is terrible
  • The pills are too expensive

With these five factors in mind, we set out to develop the best bariatric vitamins on the market. To create the best bariatric surgery vitamins, we knew we had to follow a simple mantra: the patient comes first.

Building the Right Team

After deciding we wanted to create the best vitamins for bariatric patients, we realized we could not create a revolutionary product without building a phenomenal team of experts.

We joined forces with a team of dietitians, bariatric directors, and coordinators at the University of Missouri Bariatrics department.

Together, we set out to prove once-daily supplements could be just as effective as their multidose counterparts.


The Path to the Best Bariatric Vitamin

At ProCare Health, we want to help our customers maintain weight loss as they embark on their weight-loss journey.

We also want to be sure our customers have absolutely nothing to worry about, which is why we follow a three-pronged approach that ensures everyone can live the healthy lifestyle they deserve.

Keep It Simple

After taking a closer look at our competitors’ post-bariatric surgery vitamins, we discovered they use excessive binders and fillers.

We also discovered a once-daily multivitamin is more appealing to bariatric patients, as well as clinically proven to be more effective. Studies showed that patients remember their first daily dose of medicine. With each additional required dose, they are more likely to forget.

To create the best bariatric vitamins on the market, we decided to keep it simple. We used a slow manufacturing process to reduce the amounts of binders and fillers to create a small vitamin that could be taken once a day.

With our team of bariatric experts at the University of Missouri, we created a once-daily multivitamin as well as great tasting calcium options to take throughout the day to simplify post-bariatric weight loss.

Make It Affordable

Adopting a new lifestyle after weight loss surgery can also be expensive. We know our customers have to spend their hard-earned money on bariatric supplements, as well as healthy food and monthly gym memberships.

We believe a healthier lifestyle should not come with a financial burden, which is why we make it affordable for our customers to live the healthy lifestyle they want.

For less than 40 cents a day, patients can simplify their weight loss journey and access the best once-daily bariatric vitamins on the market.

Eliminate Taste and Texture Issues

When you must take a supplement every day for the rest of your life, the last thing you want to force yourself to take is a terrible tasting vitamin.

At ProCare, we understand the struggles of our customers, so we took it upon ourselves to create a specially designed, vegetable-based capsule with no carbs, flavoring, colorings, or sugars.  We also offer an easy to chew, great tasting fruit punch chewable vitamin that is available in three iron varieties to meet your needs (45 mg, 18 mg, and iron free). For those who prefer capsules, we have vitamin options with the same iron varieties.

Because many programs request patients also take a probiotic to aid in overall gut health and to reduce digestion discomforts, we went one step further. We created a two capsule probiotic that provides 15 billion probiotic CFUs as well as your daily multivitamin requirements.


The Best Bariatric Vitamins Require Revolutionary Research

At ProCare Health, we are passionate about creating the best vitamins for bariatric patients. Our passion drove us to spend two years developing our original formula.

To create our bariatric vitamins, we assembled a team of research partners from the University of Missouri Bariatric department. Along with doctors and dieticians, we also worked with real patients to hone the potency and effectiveness of our bariatric supplements.

When it comes to ProCare vitamins, we continue to monitor the latest research to ensure our bariatric supplements remain the best on the market. We strive to improve our formulas continually, so our customers have the bariatric supplements they deserve.

When research showed probiotics and additional vitamins were advantageous for weight loss, we incorporated them into our formula without changing the potency of our supplements. Dietitians discussed the lack of a Prenatal option for bariatric patients, so we worked with them to create one that addresses the unique needs of a bariatric patient mom to be.

We changed the iron in our bariatric supplements to a form that causes fewer constipation issues for patients.

We also reformed our bariatric supplements to include methylcobalamin, the most effective form of B12 for bariatric supplements.

And most recently came out with a new formula, Special 45, for those patients who needed a Methyl folate form of Folic Acid and less B12.


Research Leads to Innovation

Apart from conducting revolutionary research, we also aspire to create innovative products. In fact, we recently introduced a new form of calcium to the bariatric world.

Bariatric surgery changes the way the body absorbs calcium, which means weight loss patients need a calcium supplement that is easily absorbable. TruCal® is a complete calcium supplement that is easily absorbed by patients with low stomach acid and offers a more complete array of vitamins and minerals that are found in our bones.

Quality Products for High Quality of Life

When it comes to ProCare vitamins, we know our customers depend on our products to stay healthy and happy. Therefore, we aspire to produce low-cost, high-quality bariatric supplements to serve our customers.

With our commitment to quality, we follow higher standards than the FDA. While the FDA requires the testing of one or two items in a supplement, we hold ProCare vitamins to a higher standard.

First, we test every ingredient at our sourcing facility. Then, we test each of our products for potency and purity before we ship them.

However, our commitment to quality does not stop there. We also select random samples and send them to third party testing facilities for pre- and post-testing of every batch of bariatric supplements.

Quality You Can See

At ProCare Health, we want our customers to know how strong our commitment to quality is. We publish all the results of our third-party potency and purity tests online, so our customers can view them. They can also scan the QR code on the outside of the bottle to view the test results for a specific product.


The ProCare Difference

When it comes to bariatric supplements, every patient has a choice to make. While our competitors want you to choose their bariatric supplements, we truly believe our supplements are superior in the areas that matter.


Bariatric supplements from the competition can cost up to $150 per month. With a membership to our monthly subscription service,  you could pay as low as $11.99  for a months’ worth of multivitamins.


We follow higher quality standards than manufacturers of supplements. We follow a strict, multi-step quality control process that includes testing every batch of bariatric supplements for potency and purity. We also publish all lab results on our website for customers to see.


When adapting to life after bariatric surgery, the last thing you need to worry about is taking a handful of supplements multiple times a day. With our once-daily multivitamin, we eliminate the need for taking pills every few hours.

Taste and Texture

Bariatric vitamins are a lifelong commitment, which is why we want our customers to have a pleasant experience when they take supplements. Our veggie-based bariatric multivitamins are easy to chew and have a pleasant taste and texture. They have no added surgery or carbs and are easy to digest.
