Because the stomach is smaller after this type of intervention, less gastric juice and stomach acid are produced and creating a higher risk of vitamin B12 and iron deficiencies. That is why WLS Optimum was developed: a multivitamin with exactly the right amounts of vitamins and minerals, which provides an optimal supplement to the diet.
After surgery, a small portion of the stomach remains and the small intestine is adjusted. Normally, most vitamins are absorbed in the small intestine. After these operations the intake of ingested nutrients is considerably limited. That is why it is important for patients to use additional vitamins and minerals. In WLS Forte, the proportions of vitamins and minerals have been adjusted in such a way that, the risk of deficiencies is reduced and, high values of micro-nutrients are prevented.
The FitForMe supplements are available from just a dollar a day. See product pages for more details. FitForMe’s prices are competitive.
In 2011 FitForMe carried out a randomised, controlled trial in collaboration with Rijnstate Hospital in Arnhem. From this Vital Study 1 it appears that patients who use the WLS multivitamins from FitForMe have significantly better vitamin and mineral values than patients who use standard supplements.
