Can I take Bari Life vitamins if I haven't had bariatric surgery?
Absolutely! Bari Life vitamins, while they were designed for weight loss surgery patients, are used by non-surgical patients everywhere. Bari Life vitamins are safe for people to take who haven't had bariatric surgery. The only thing that changes is the dosage which you can find on the product page or product label. Bari Life vitamins and supplements are formulated to address the health needs of adults at all ages. Whether you're an athlete, on a diet or just want to make sure you get all of the essential nutrients recommended for a healthy body, Bari Life vitamins offer all of the essential nutrients your body needs in one formula.
Do I need to take more than the multivitamins?
Our multivitamins will give you more than 100% of the RDA and fill in the gaps where nutrients are needed. This is an effective, high potency formula that works! You'll be feeling more energized and satisfied in no time when you begin the Bari Life vitamin regimen.
How can calcium and iron be taken together? Is that okay?
There are 2 main forms of iron: Heme iron and Non-Heme iron. Heme iron is found in red meats, poultry and fish. Non-Heme iron is found in plants and animal tissue and it is also the form of iron used in our vitamin supplements. Studies show that non-heme iron has little to no competition with calcium. In other words, you are able to take your iron supplements and your calcium supplements together without worrying about absorbing the iron. Click Here to read more about calcium and iron.
Can the vitamins make me feel nauseous?
Supplementing with any vitamin can cause some people to feel nauseous, especially if you are not used to taking vitamins. If you are just beginning to take vitamins we recommend spacing out the dosage. If you are a Gastric Bypass or Sleeve patient and you are taking our Multivitamin Tablet then you will need 6 a day and we recommend spreading out the dosage. For example, instead of taking 3 Bari Life tablets in the morning and 3 at night we recommend taking 1 every few hours or taking 2 in the morning, 2 at lunch and 2 at night. The same goes for the multivitamin powder. If you are supposed to take 2 scoops of powder a day we recommend taking 1/2 scoop at a time. If you are experiencing nausea contact your health care professional.
Are the protein food supplements safe for me to eat if I haven't had weight loss surgery?
Yes! Most Definitely! In fact, Bari Life protein supplements are perfect for people on low calorie, high protein diets. If you do not want to sacrifice taste for low calorie and high protein food options then Bari Life products should be a staple in your diet. Anyone who is looking for better tasting protein bars or a savory bag of chips with protein without the calories and fat need to have Bari Life supplements in their life! You are missing out if you don't have them already! If you are interested in the diet plans that use Bari Life supplements entirely, then you should contact a medical professional to help create your meal plan. The plans that we have designed do not provide enough calories for someone who has not had weight loss surgery.
