Specially developed for use after a biliopancreatic diversion or duodenal switch
A bariatric surgery marks the beginning of a new life and to keep in shape it is essential to take your daily dose of vitamins and minerals. After a biliopancreatic diversion or a duodenal switch, you will eat in smaller quantities and therefore, ingesting fewer vitamins and minerals necessary for your body. That’s why we developed WLS Maximum, a multivitamin tailored for people with gastric bypass surgery. With the addition of iron, folic acid, vitamin A, vitamin B12 and vitamin D, we’ve made it easy for you to supplement your diet daily.
FitForMe guarantees you the highest possible quality. That’s why we have all our products made in the Netherlands by recognized companies. These companies comply with HACCP and GMP standards and have appropriate certifications and labels. We elect to pack our tablets and capsules in practical jars that offer good protection against the influence of oxygen, moisture and light.

- The capsule is best taken 1 to 2 hours after breakfast or 1 to 2 hours after lunch. In this way, 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.
- Moisten the capsule in the mouth so that the outer layer does not stick. In this way, the capsule slides more easily.
- When you swallow the capsule, it is best to place your chin to your chest instead of backward.
- Do not drink and eat large quantities immediately before, during and after taking the capsule. This way you avoid feeling nauseous.
- The capsule can be easily taken with the following foods and quantities: a sip of water or other sugar-free drinks or a tablespoon sugar-free fruit puree or other liquid foods.
- If you have trouble swallowing the capsule, you can also slide the capsule open and use only the content (in powder form) with the aforementioned liquid foods.
- 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 capsule does not go well, always contact our customer service by telephone or email. This way we can find a suitable and an appropriate solution together with you to facilitate your intake.
