TwinLab Bariatric Support B-12 Dots Cherry 100 Micro Tablets
Twinlab Bariatric Support B 12 Dots Cherry Flavor are quick dissolving, potent dots, providing 500 mcg of B-12 per serving. B-12 Dots help bariatric surgery patients meet their daily requirement for vitamin B12. Each Dot contains more than 100% of the Daily Value of B-12 to support natural energy production in convenient, quick-dissolving micro tablets with no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives added. Vitamin B-12, a memeber of the B-Complex family, helps maintain healthy nerve and red blood cells, and is needed to make DNA. B12 is also involved in several metabolic processes including protein and fat metabolism, and plays an important role in helping your body turn food into energy. The body cannot produce vitamin B 12 on its own, so you must obtain your daily serving through your diet. However, post-operative bariatric patients may have difficulty absorbing sufficient amounts of B-12 from the foods they eat. A daily supplement, such as Twinlab Bariatric Support B-12 Dots, can help you to meet your daily requirements for this important vitamin.
Twinlab's comprehensive new Bariatric Support line addresses the specific nutritional needs and challenges faced by bariatric surgery patients. Twinlab's Bariatric line acts as a nutritional safety net to help fill in nutrient gaps potentially left by reduced food intake and decreased absorption to support optimal health of these individuals. Due to the unique digestive challenges faced by bariatric surgery patients, many dietary supplement forms such as capsules and large tablets can be difficult for these individuals to absorb. This is especially true in the early stages of the recovery process, when patients are required to follow a liquid-only diet. Instead, many bariatric nutritionists typically recommend delivery systems that may be more easily digested or absorbed, such as liquids and chews.
Twinlab was created in 1968 when founder David Blechman leveraged his 20 years of expertise in the pharmaceutical industry to develop and market a liquid protein supplement. Working out in his family's garage, he and his wife named their developing business Twinlab, after the couple's two sets of twins. Sales soared, and in the 1980s, Twinlab branched out to a broader range of vitamins, minerals, herbs and teas.
Since 1968, the Twinlab brand has been the trusted leader for innovative, high performance, health and wellness products. In addition to the extensive line of vitamins, minerals and sport nutrition formulas of its namesake brand, Twinlab Corporation also manufactures and sells other category leaders, including the Metabolife line of diet and energy products; Alvita Teas, established in 1922 as one of the country's first herbal tea lines, and Nature's Herbs, a complete line of herbals and phytonutrients.
