  • Quality absorbable form of nutrients should be used after bariatric surgery due to the absorption challenges of bariatric patients
  • Gastric Bypass (RYGB/RNY) and Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG/SG) patients are recommended to take dietary supplements as chewable or liquid in the first 1-3 months after surgery.  Gastric Band (AGB) patients should always use chewable or liquid dietary supplements.

Way too sweet

While the product is extremely convenient and effective, the berry flavor is way too sweet. I'm talking eye watering, lip puckering, teeth clenching sweet. Thankfully it dissolves quickly as you chew so it's tolerable but I won't be re-ordering this flavor again. Hopefully, the orange flavor will be better balanced.

Best I’ve tried in 18 years!

I had Roux en Y 18 years ago. I’ve kept off 100 lbs. I need a well absorbed multi without iron as I don’t absorb iron by mouth. My endocrinologist doc suggested this brand. I have tried these chewables and the capsules. The chewables are the BEST! After taking them for 3 months, my labs were great and my hair and nails are the healthiest they have been in years! My nails grew long and strong! That’s my sign that the product is being absorbed well by my body. I feel great, too!

Taste

I hate the taste of the Berry Essential Multivitamins.
Please bring back the French Vanilla.

Good vitamin with a side of nausea

The taste is ok and not sweet nor sour. I usually buy the black cherry chewables and wanted a change. These are good but causes nausea, even with food. I had the gastric sleeve 5 years ago and love Bariatric Advantage products. I would give 5 stars if if didn’t make me nauseous.
