WLS Optimum is specially developed for use after a gastric band or gastric sleeve
After the placement of a sleeve, your body needs a helping hand when it comes to getting vitamins and minerals. The operation causes a significant change: you eat less and that means that your body may not get enough nutrients to keep you feeling fit. You may need more iron and vitamin B to supplement your diet. We are happy to assist you. In addition to your diet, we developed WLS Optimum according to the latest scientific developments. This multivitamin contains a special dosage and is an important addition to your diet. This way you will receive sufficient
vitamins and minerals every day to supplement your diet. An important step towards a healthier life, where FitForMe is always there for you!

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 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.
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 find it crucial that you quickly get the best out of your supplement. Capsules dissolve quickly in your stomach, so that the vitamins and minerals are swiftly absorbed into your body. In addition, you can easily open the capsules and mix the contents with your food if you have trouble swallowing the entire capsule.
The difference between a standard multivitamin and our WLS Optimum is that the WLS Optimum has been developed according to the latest scientific developments, for people who have undergone a sleeve or gastric band operation. After your sleeve or gastric band operation it is important to use a multivitamin so that you get a good dosage to supplement your diet. Because FitForMe has developed a customised multivitamin, you only need to take 1 WLS Optimum capsule per day.
