The Importance of ProCare Health: Meeting Your Needs as a Patient

Proper nutrients can be hard for the body to absorb after bariatric surgery. As such, many patients end up needing to take bariatric multivitamins for the rest of their lives. When deciding on the best bariatric multivitamin for your specific needs, it is important to be fully informed. Choosing the wrong vitamin can be harsh on your wallet and may even lead to improper vitamin levels and other health problems.

The ideal vitamin is cost effective, high quality and meets all your nutritional needs. That’s why we at ProCare Health are dedicated to providing our customers with the best quality vitamins at the best possible prices. Our once daily vitamins are available in both capsule and tablet form to suit almost any need.

Who Needs Our Bariatric Vitamins?

ProCareFirst and foremost, it is important to understand our bariatric vitamins were designed around your after surgery needs. ProCare Health bariatric multivitamins are once daily supplements specially designed for patients who have undergone adjustable band, DS switch, gastric bypass, gastric sleeve and/or mini bypass weight loss surgeries (WLS). Patients who have undergone any form of WLS are at risk for vitamin deficiencies. Different types of WLS may lead to different dietary requirements, so it is important that patients are taking supplements that are targeted toward their specific needs.

Recommended Dietary Allowance

The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for bariatric supplements is set by the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS). Our once daily multivitamins have been formulated to meet the 200 percent RDA that was set in the updated 2016 ASMBS recommendations. We have spent countless hours ensuring that our vitamins are not just up to industry standard, but also our own. As such we test all of our ingredients for quality and purity standards. Check out our test results.

Iron in Our Vitamins

An iron deficiency can lead to anemia, fatigue and even hair loss. Because we know that different patients have different dietary needs depending on their procedure, we offer supplements with varying amounts of iron. We have supplements with 18 mg for those at low risk of deficiency and 45 mg for those at high risk. We also offer versions of our vitamins without iron for patients who prefer to get their iron elsewhere. Consult your doctor if you are unsure which best suits your individual needs.

Vitamin B12

A B12 deficiency can lead to anemia, fatigue, tingling in the hands and even some neurological problems. Because of this we took extra care to ensure that our multivitamins have an abundance of B12. Each supplement is packed with 1000 mcg of B12; the ASMBS recommends at least 350 mcg. We also offer a standalone B12 Complex Liquid.

Helping Dietitians Help Patients

We wanted to help make life easier for both patients and professionals. So, we asked for the most common patient complaints regarding bariatric supplements. The top five are size, daily dose, taste, texture and cost.

We then set out to address them all.

Supplement size and daily dose
While the size is average for a supplement, we packed in about double the nutrients. This means only one is needed each day. Since it’s designed as a chewable wafer, it can be broken up into smaller pieces if desired.

Taste and texture
We pack more vitamins into a single dose because our supplements are made with minimal binders and fillers. Less binders also means less of a chalky taste and texture. The result is a more pleasant tasting supplement.

Cost
Cost is usually the biggest factor in getting the vitamins you need. If you can’t afford it, you will not stick with it, and that can lead to big health problems in the future. We focused on making our supplement cost-effective and succeeded. A comparison of top bariatric brands shows you can save 49-61% a month on supplements with ProCare Health.

Trust & Transparency

To many, it might be “just a vitamin”, however, at ProCare Health we know how much a quality supplement can effect patient health. Our products undergo a testing regimen that exceeds the industry’s quality expectations. After being produced in a cGMP compliant plant in the USA, every ingredient of every lot is tested, delivering peace of mind to customers. No other company provides that level of testing with transparent results available for everyone to see. Also, our Bariatric Multivitamin with 45 mg iron capsule is ConsumerLab.com approved!

This vitamin has made a huge difference in my life! Hands down, the best part is that it is so easy to take. No more struggling every day trying to [get] my vitamin down. AND! My labs were great at my last appointment. After previously needing iron infusions, everything was perfect!
