Iron deficiency is one of the most common nutritional concerns after bariatric surgery. Estimates indicate that up to 50% of bariatric surgery patients experience iron deficiency due to a number of factors that may include reduced absorption of iron and a decreased intake of meat. Twinlab Bariatric Support Chewable Iron is a highly absorbable iron supplement formulated to help bariatric surgery patients meet their daily iron requirements in a tasty and convenient chewable tablet. This product contains Ferrochel iron bisglycinate, a unique form of chelated iron formulated for maximum absorption without gastrointestinal irritation or the constipating effects that often accompany iron supplementation. Studies have shown that Ferrochel is both better tolerated and more readily adsorbed than ferrous sulfate – which is found in some other iron containing supplements – making it an ideal iron form for bariatric surgery patients. 18 mg – 100% of the Daily Value – of highly absorbable, gentle iron Not associated with constipation or gastric upset often experienced with other iron forms No artificial flavors or sweeteners Suggested Use Use in accordance with your physician’s recommendations.
