About Our Bariatric Supplements
Established in 2009, Dr. Stephen G. Boyce, a board certified general surgeon with over 20 years of experience in bariatric surgery, is changing the bariatric vitamin industry with the development of Bari Life Bariatric Supplements. The vitamin and supplement regimens are designed to be simple, affordable and effective for weight loss surgery (WLS) candidates.
Our mission is to provide customers with the highest quality bariatric vitamin, an easy to follow regimen, affordable price and excellent customer care. Clinically proven, Bari Life Bariatric Supplements help patients vitamin and mineral supplementation compliance after WLS. Many WLS patients take four or more different supplements each day, whereas Bari Life Vitamins are complete, giving the patient a simplified daily vitamin regimen. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies can lead to serious medical conditions such as anemia, osteoporosis, bone pain and fractures, encephalopathy (brain dysfunction) and paralysis. If patient's fail to take their essential vitamins and supplements regularly they will simply be trading one set of medical problems for others later.
