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 ironNot associated with constipation or gastric upset often experienced with other iron formsNo artificial flavors or sweeteners
