Specially developed for use after a gastric bypass
A weight loss surgery operation means the start of a new life. To keep feeling fit after your surgery, it is important that you get the adequate amount of daily vitamins and minerals. After your gastric bypass you eat less so you will also get fewer vitamins and minerals. That is why we developed the WLS Forte Chewable Vitamin. A special multivitamin used after a gastric bypass. We made it chewable and gave it a fresh fruity flavor, making it easy for you to get the recommended dosage of vitamins and minerals to supplement your diet. With added vitamin B12, vitamin D and iron, to help support your health every day.* Iron contributes to extra energy in case of fatigue. WLS Forte was developed according to the latest scientific developments.
Free Ferro Forte
It’s important that you take extra iron every day after your gastric bypass as a supplement to your diet. FitForMe believes your health is of the utmost importance! That is why you will receive a FREE set of Ferro Forte tablets with your purchase of WLS Forte Chewable Vitamin. Good luck on your way to your new life!

Supplements may help you to get adequate amounts of essential nutrients. However, supplements should not take the place of the variety of foods that are important to a healthy diet.
- The chewable tablet is best taken 1 to 2 hours after breakfast or 1 to 2 hours after lunch so the capsule is less heavy on the stomach.
- It is recommended to take the calcium tablet or a dairy product separately from your daily multivitamin, with a minimum of 2 hours between the moments of intake. Calcium inhibits the iron intake from your multivitamin if they are taken simultaneously.
- Do not drink and eat large quantities immediately before, during and after taking the tablet to avoid feeling nauseous.
- You can contact our customer service to determine a suitable time for you to start with the supplements, in addition to your diet.
- In case taking the tablet does not go well, please contact our customer service by telephone at 877-704-0847 or email at [email protected] This way we can find a suitable and an appropriate solution together with you to facilitate your intake.
PLEASE NOTE: Sugar (also natural sugar) and foods rich in sugars can, after a bariatric operation, be heavy for your body. It is advisable to choose foods without sugars, to avoid nausea.

At FitForMe we like to listen to your wishes. That is why we have developed a chewable version created especially for those who have difficulty swallowing supplements. The composition is an exact match to that of the WLS Forte capsule.
At FitForMe we know that it is nice to be listened to. After listening to your input it turned out that many people do not like chewing vitamins that contain iron. That is why we decided to offer iron in a separate tablet during the development of the WLS Forte Chewable Vitamin. Because we believe it is important that you get enough of all vitamins and minerals in addition to your diet, we’re giving you a FREE set of Ferro tablets with your WLS Forte Chewable Vitamin purchase.
