Giving Patients What They Need to Succeed
We give you the nutrition you need to stay healthy after bariatric surgery in the fewest number of products possible.
Here at BariLife, we believe in supplement options that are:
- Practical: easily build your new regimen and actually stick to it.
- Affordable: you shouldn’t have to break the bank in order to stay healthy.
- Holistic: you’ll find recipes, meal plans, exercise info, and other tips to build a full, active life post-surgery.
When you decided to have bariatric surgery you probably focused all of your attention on the things you wanted to do, things that your weight has kept you from being able to do in the past.
Riding roller coasters at theme parks instead of waiting for your friends and family to get done with the rides.
Being able to keep up with your kids at the park while they play and run around without having to stop and rest.
Getting down on the floor to play with your grandchildren without any pain or needing help to get back up
You probably didn’t think much about taking vitamins and drinking protein shakes around the clock for the rest of your life. The last thing you thought about was the possibility of developing horrible, life-threatening deficiencies like:
- Bone loss
- Tooth decay
- Night blindness
- Nerve damage
You need to be healthy to enjoy those activities. But without proper nutrition after bariatric surgery, the dream of doing all of those fun and exciting things in your new life fades away.
That’s why Bari Life was created.
Hi, I’m Dr. Stephen Boyce. I’m a bariatric surgeon and founder of Bari Life.
When I first started devoting my practice to bariatrics I knew I needed something to recommend to my patients in the form of supplementation. But at the time, the options that were out there were either
- Too complicated
- Too expensive
- Not adequate for bariatric patients
I quickly realized that asking my patients to follow a complex and expensive vitamin regimen they weren’t able to follow it as we needed them to.
One thing I know is that if they didn’t take their supplements correctly, they were almost guaranteed to develop dangerous deficiencies.
What I did was combine every single vitamin and mineral into one supplement. This allowed me and my staff to ask my patients to purchase only 1 bottle for all of their vitamin and mineral needs.

The funny thing is that I never intended for Bari Life to leave my office. I just needed quality vitamins to help my patients stay healthy, and I know they’ll help you, too.
Part of my practice is training surgeons on how to do the bariatric procedures. The topic of vitamins would come up and I’d explain how Bari Life works. They always asked “how can my patients get this?” and that’s when I realized that we could be helping more patients outside of my practice.
Aside from providing the absolute best bariatric supplements on the market, we also understand that life after bariatric surgery involves more than supplements. That’s why we regularly come out with new recipes, blog articles and more to help support you in all facets of post-op life.
We have the expertise of an entire bariatric clinic behind everything we do.
We want to help protect and promote the newfound freedom and renewed confidence in a world that stigmatizes obesity. We help patients make a lifestyle commitment to enjoy the new person they have finally become with the right supplements to support their new life.
