Specially developed for use after a gastric band or gastric sleeve
A weight loss surgery operation means the start of a new life. To continue to be fit, it is essential that you get your daily dosage of vitamins and minerals. For example, vitamin B12 works great to battle against fatigue.* After the placement of your sleeve you will be eating less, which means you will be ingesting fewer vitamins and minerals. That is why we developed the WLS Optimum Chew Vitamin, a multivitamin developed specifically for use after a sleeve or stomach band operation. We made it chewable and gave it a fresh fruity flavor so you can easily take the accurate dosage of vitamins and minerals every day to supplement your diet.
In addition, vitamin B and iron will help you support your health every day.Iron has a positive effect on your immune system. FitForMe’s WLS Optimum Chew is developed according to the latest scientific developments.
Free Ferro Optimum
It is extremely important for you to add an extra iron supplement to your daily regimen. Ferro Optimum contains 28 mg of iron and 1.9 gram of copper. At FitForMe we believe maintaining your health is of the utmost importance! To help you on your journey you will receive a FREE set of our Ferro Optimum tablets with your purchase of WLS Optimum 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.

You asked. We Listened! After receiving great feedback from our clients we have developed a WLS Optimum chewable made especially for those who have difficulty swallowing capsule supplements. The composition is an exact match to that of the WLS Optimum capsule!
The difference between a standard multivitamin and our WLS Optimum Chewable Vitamin is that the WLS Optimum Chewable Vitamin was 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. FitForMe has developed a customized multivitamin, you only need 1 WLS Optimum chewable tablet and 1 Ferro Optimum tablet per day.
After gathering our customer’s feedback we learned out that quite a few people do not like chewing vitamins containing iron, due to taste. That’s why we decided to offer iron in a separate tablet to be taken with your WLS Optimum Chewable Vitamin. In order to meet your new lifestyle goals we believe it is important that you take all of your vitamins and minerals. You will receive a set of Ferro tablets FREE with your purchase of WLS Optimum Chewable Vitamin.
