      BARIATRIC SUPPORT is a comprehensive supplementation program designed by Twinlab to provide high quality nutritional solutions to help address the specific needs of bariatric patients. The goal of bariatric surgery is to limit the bodys supply and absorption of calorie-laden macronutrients. However, this also results in a decreased intake of micronutrients and other essential dietary components including vitamins, minerals and protein that are key to overall good health. Our products utilize nutrient-dense, convenient forms that are easily digested and absorbed by the body to help meet the unique needs of bariatric patients and support optimum assimilation and utilization of nutrients.<

    Directions
    Use in accordance with your physicians recommendation. Typical use. Chew four wafers daily, preferably with a meal.

    Warning
    If you are pregnant or nursing, taking any medication, or have any medical condition, consult a health care professional before use. Keep out of reach of children.

    Brand Information

    I am a Bariatric Patient and regular calcium pills are too big for me to handle, none of the local retailers sell a good affordable chewable calcium citrate. This is a 30 day supply for the same price as a 15 day supply of other Chewable Calcium Citrate Wafers and the taste is not horrible. I order 2 months worth at a time and take advantage of the free shipping for the order being over $25.00

          Comments about Twinlab Bariatric Support Calcium Wafers - 120 Chewable Wafers:

          I had lap band surgery on December 7, 2015. Because of that I had to start taking calcium citrate supplements but had to have them in chewable form. I researched and looked at reviews for lots of different brands and the common theme was the "awful" taste of the tablets. I waited until the last minute to buy these because of that and was expecting them to taste horrible. I had planned on using them until I found a better (and cheaper) product. I was very surprised when I took my first one. Although it is a larger tablet (wafer) and is fairly thick, the taste was not unpleasant at all. There is a lot of "powder" from each tablet, but not to the point where I felt I would "choke" or had to have something to drink to help swallow it. I plan on re-purchasing this brand and will continue to use it instead of searching for another brand. Right now there is a VitaminShoppe close to where I live so I can purchase in the store. However, I will be moving in June and the closest store will be about 2 hours away. I have already shipped products from VitaminShoppe to my new home and will continue to order from here once I get settled. The shipping was quick and free and the products are great.
          I definitely recommend this product to anyone needing this type of supplement who has to have it in chewable form. I am re-ordering today!

              These are definitely the best ones I've tried and the most economical. Most of the others are way too chalky and are priced the same for a third of the product. Definitely worth checking out.

                  Comments about Twinlab Bariatric Support Calcium Wafers - 120 Chewable Wafers:

                  I became a vegetarian in February, and am attempting to go Vegan now, so I have currently phased out milk. Not to mention that I am very slender with a small appetite, so my dietary intake is not adequate enough to obtain all of my nutrients that I am told is required. For these reasons I went shopping for a Calcium/Magnesium/Vitamin D supplement. I am terrible at swallowing pills (they get stuck), and I despise those Calcium chews. I came across this product and decided to give it a try. It is a tad bit chalky, but not so much that it is an issue. I actually kind of like them, and prefer them just after a meal with some water for smoothest palatability. I do intend to check in January with my PCP to make sure this is an acceptable supplement.

                    If you have a sulfa allergy, can you take this product (bariatric calcium wafers)?
                    Sandra A on May 5, 2014
                    Best Answer: If you do take these, remember if you take a multivitamin or and iron supplement they should be spaced out. Calcium will not allow your body to absorb the iron in your multivitamin or iron supplement if taken together or close together. If you take the multivitamin or iron supplement first wait 2 hours before taking any calcium supplement. If you take the calcium supplement first wait 4 hours before taking the multivitamin with iron or iron supplement.

                    Is this calcium citrate or another kind? I wa told that for bariatric surgery I will need the calcium citrate.
                    Jeanne M on Mar 13, 2013
                    Best Answer: Hello Jeanne, it is the calcium citrate tetrahydrate form, so yes. Make sure you get ample amounts of Vitamin D to help your body absorb the calcium, and magnesium citrate to in turn help your body absorb Vitamin D, and still yet plenty of Vitamin C to help absorb the magnesium. A lot to keep up on. Research is a must when taking supplements. Also, be cautious, as calcium can often be dangerous by accumulating in your arteries if it is not absorbed properly. Supplemental calcium is a kind of last resort.
