Product Description

Bariatric Advantage Dry Vitamin D3 easy-digest mini capsules deliver 5,000 IU of vitamin D as cholecalciferol (D3) in a water-miscible form that is usually recommended for patients for some bariatric patients.

  • Vitamin D3 is the clinically preferred form of vitamin D.

    A water-miscible form of vitamin D is important for some patients as other fat-soluble forms require dietary fat for proper absorption. Some bariatric surgery patients lack the necessary dietary fat due to the impaired ability to absorb fat or reduced fat intake.

    Vitamin D deficiency is one of the most common deficiencies seen with both pre- and post-surgery patients of all bariatric procedure types.

    ASMBS guidelines call for at least 3,000 IU vitamin D per day for patients of most bariatric procedure types.1

    Vitamin D promotes calcium and phosphorus absorption and is needed for bone growth and bone remodeling
