KNOXVILLE, TN--(Marketwire -08/21/12)- Developed by board certified Knoxville bariatric surgeon Dr. Stephen Boyce, New Life Bariatric Supplements are designed to help weight loss surgery patients avoid the development of potentially serious health risks due to nutritional deficiencies. However, Dr. Boyce warns that different weight loss procedures require specific supplementation based on the impact these procedures have on the body's ability to absorb nutrients, which is why he says developing separate weight loss surgery vitamin plans is essential to any patient's successful transformation.
Because different weight loss procedures require varying degrees of supplementation based on the nutritional impact of these procedures on the body, Dr. Boyce says developing a specific vitamin plan to account for these differences is extremely important. The modular dosage plans for New Life Bariatric Vitamins are designed to provide the necessary nutritional supplementation for patients having undergone procedures ranging from the vertical sleeve gastrectomy to a gastric bypass, and are based on the recommendations made by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).
The bariatric supplements come in a powder and pill form, and both either satisfy or exceed the ASMBS recommendations for vitamins and minerals. Dr. Boyce adds that both forms of the supplements have been designed with patient compliance and success in mind:
Patient toleration: EZ swallow coating, easily dissolved powdered vitamins, and chewable vitamins allow the patients different methods for taking the vitamins
Improved compliance: patients are 50% more compliant with New Life Vitamins [1,2]
Complete Supplementation: patient's vitamin regimen is simplified into one formula
Pressure Compaction Only: heat is avoided when creating the formula because it can damage the supplements
While the path to a successful weight loss begins with a handful of procedures and basic recommendations, Dr. Boyce says each patient's journey is wholly unique and requires an individual plan based on their specific needs. He adds that developing the ideal weight loss surgery vitamin plans for New Life Bariatric Supplements is simply one way to account for these differences and help patients achieve their weight loss goals.
