How much calcium should you be getting?

The good news is calcium deficiencies are easy to prevent with proper supplementation. The ASMBS recommends 1,500mg of calcium per day for gastric bypass and vertical sleeve patients.

 

BariBursts have 100% Calcium Citrate

 

Here’s a vitamin industry secret: not all vitamins are created equal.

We are talking about specific vitamins like Vitamin D, Vitamin A and Calcium…etc.

Each of these vitamins and minerals actually has multiple “sources” or “forms.” You can think of the source as the “type” of Vitamin D, or the “type” of Vitamin A.

 

Here’s an example:

Vitamin D is most commonly available in the forms Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 is much more bioavailable and is better absorbed, so that’s what we put in our supplements

Calcium is commonly found in 2 types as well: Calcium Carbonate and Calcium Citrate.

 

For bariatric patients, calcium citrate is the preferred form.

Here’s why…

BariBursts - Watermelon Calcium Citrate Bari Life

As we covered above it’s virtually impossible for bariatric patients to get enough calcium through diet alone.

BariBursts - Watermelon Calcium Citrate Bari Life

After bariatric surgery, the low stomach acid environment dramatically affects your body’s ability to absorb calcium.

BariBursts - Watermelon Calcium Citrate Bari Life

Patients who have some form of bowel bypass (Gastric Bypass, Duodenal Switch, SADI-S) because the part of the bowel that is responsible for most calcium absorption can’t do its job since it’s been bypassed.

 

Look at point #2 – the low stomach acid environment dramatically affects your body’s ability to absorb calcium

Calcium Citrate does not require the presence of nearly as much stomach acid as Calcium Carbonate, so as a bariatric patient, you are able to absorb Calcium Citrate better.

 

Why would anyone put Calcium Carbonate in Bariatric Supplements?

Good question – there are 2 main reasons why a company would put calcium carbonate in its supplements:

1. It’s smaller – you can fit way more elemental calcium in the Carbonate form into a pill/chewable so it’s great for managing pill size or number of pills required

2. It’s cheaper – pretty self-explanatory, right?

 

But it’s a bad idea for bariatric patients…

 

That’s why we use 100% calcium citrate in our products, including BariBursts

In 3 tasty, individually wrapped chews you get :
