Get to Know ProCare Health Bariatric Multivitamins & Calciums
ProCare Health’s mission is to provide the best products for bariatric patients!
We place all our effort into ensuring our products achieve the standards weight loss surgery patients require to maintain their health and achieve their weight loss goals.
To achieve this, we worked with the Bariatric Teaching Hospital Surgeons and Dietitians at the University of Missouri to create the most effective formulas for our selections of multivitamins and supplements.
To ensure the consistency of our products and the safety of patients, all our products undergo third-party testing and meet the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) guidelines.
Consumerlab.com, an independent blind tester, also tests and approves several of our products for quality and label accuracy.
We gladly take all these steps to ensure the efficacy and safety of our products so that our customers receive the quality healthcare products they need and deserve.
Industry-Changing Daily Multivitamins
Since the beginning, we’ve been innovative in finding new opportunities to support bariatric surgery patients. Working alongside professional bariatric specialists, we fine-tuned and tested our multivitamins.
Our once-daily multivitamins promote better health for bariatric patients. The multivitamins’ affordability and one-a-day use make post-surgical supplementation a breeze.
Our once-daily multivitamins are available in a capsule and chewable formula so individuals can choose what they prefer.
Probiotics + Bariatric Multivitamin
A study by Stanford University School of Medicine found that taking a daily vitamin supplement with probiotics, gastric bypass surgery patients had higher B12 absorption rates and lost more weight over the study duration than those who did not combine their daily vitamins with probiotics.
Our fast-dissolving Probiotics + Bariatric Multivitamin is an easy-to-swallow vegetable-based capsule. Plus, it’s an excellent and affordable option that allows patients to give their bodies the nutrients they need and receive the benefits of daily probiotic supplementation.
Other bariatric multivitamin brands require patients to take the following:
- 3-4 tablets or capsules daily
- With up to 2 extra doses of probiotics.
We simplify things with our Probiotics + Bariatric Multivitamin, which only requires two capsules daily while delivering:
- 22 different nutrients at 200% or above the standard recommended daily allowance,
- 15 billion CFUs of a probiotic blend,
- And 25mg of prebiotics that helps feed the good bacteria in your digestive system.
Get all that for less than $18 per/month!
By purchasing a probiotic and bariatric multivitamin blend, you can save up to $20 monthly rather than separately buying a comparable probiotic and bariatric multivitamin.
Prenatal + Bariatric Multivitamin
Pregnancy is possible after weight loss surgery, and many women look to weight loss surgery to increase their likelihood of pregnancy. This presents a unique niche, as supplementation needs after bariatric surgery supplementation and prenatal needs vary greatly.
When preparing for pregnancy, patients must take prenatal vitamins to ensure their unborn child receives essential nutrients to promote healthy development!
We offer a Prenatal + Bariatric Multivitamin formulated to meet the mother’s and the baby's needs. The formula is specialized to enhance digestion while promoting healthy fetal brain and spinal development.
Highlighted ingredients in this multivitamin include:
- Iron (60 mg) – provides energy and helps transport oxygen throughout the body.
- Shelf-stable probiotics (5 billion CFUs) – promote healthy digestive functions.
- Prebiotics (10 mg) – fuels the good bacteria in your system.
- A gentle prenatal blend (90 mg) – contains spirulina, red raspberry, dandelion root, and ginger (enhances digestion and combats morning sickness).
- Extra potassium – prevents muscle cramps, fatigue, and weakness throughout the mother’s body.
Our Prenatal + Bariatric Multivitamin is the premier choice for expecting mothers to address their unique needs and keep their growing baby healthy.
It is available for about $18 per/month.
TruCal®: A Balanced Milk Mineral Complex
When creating our calcium supplements, there was no other bioactive ingredient we trusted more than TruCal®!
Created by Glanbia Nutritionals, TruCal® is an all-natural, clean-label ingredient that is strictly science-based, meets the highest food safety standards, and is unique and unmatched in its benefits.
Containing calcium and six other minerals in levels similar to those in human bone, TruCal® offers a mineral balance that supports the body’s bone growth and maintenance, allowing individuals of all ages to prevent injury and sustain an active lifestyle.
*The extra processing to create TruCal® strips the product of any protein and lactose.
TruCal® also allows us to create calcium products with smooth, creamy tastes and textures.
Besides our products produced with TruCal®, our secondary best recommendation for bariatric patients is to use calcium citrate supplements rather than calcium carbonate.
Both forms are common. However, calcium citrate’s properties better suit a bariatric patient’s altered digestive system and reduced stomach acid.
For more on calcium citrate and other nutritional needs pre and post-bariatric surgery, feel free to read the article “Nutritional Recommendations for Adult Bariatric Surgery Patients: Clinical Practice,” published in an international review journal, Advances in Nutrition.
Third-Party Testing and Quality Control
Working alongside doctors and bariatric coordinators has taught us how vital it is for bariatric vitamins to be tested by a third-party lab!
Poorly sourced vitamins from manufacturers that don’t take quality control seriously are worse than useless; they can hurt you. We have instituted a multi-step quality control process to keep our patients safe.
We conduct independent third-party pre- and post-testing on ingredient potency and purity for each batch within our quality-control process. Once the testing is complete, the lab results for each batch of bariatric vitamins are published directly on our website.
You can view the test results online!
ProCare Health guarantees that our patients receive safe, high-quality vitamins by meeting and exceeding the FDA's standards for vitamins and supplements.
