After a weight loss surgery, you absorb less calcium. From research (source: Mechanick et al. 2013; Pinnock 2016), we know that calcium absorption in your intestines is greatly reduced: from 33% to 4%. Even if you get 1200 mg of calcium daily through food or a supplement. A calcium deficiency can lead to osteoporosis. As a result, your bones break more easily and your teeth deteriorate faster. Therefore, the DGAV in their S3 guideline recommends 1200 to 1500 mg of calcium per day after a Gastric Bypass, Mini Gastric Bypass, Gastric Sleeve and gastric band. With a BPD/-DS even 1800 to 2400 mg per day. To get enough calcium, you will receive extra Calcium Soft Chew with a Support+ plan. One Calcium Soft Chew contains 500 mg of calcium citrate. The right amount of Calcium Soft Chews for you depends on your calcium intake from food. Consult with a doctor about what is best for you.
Vitamin D exists in 2 biologically active forms: vitamin D2 and vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is more absorbable than vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol). Also, your body stores vitamin D3 more easily. To ensure the best results, vitamin D3 is included in our supplement.
Unfortunately, the sun doesn’t shine all year round. Moreover, too much sun is not healthy for you either. But vitamin D is. Vitamin D from FitForMe as a supplement to food and sunlight replenishes your vitamin D supply. So you support your resistance, bones, muscles and teeth throughout the year. Our supplement contains vitamin D3. This makes it even easier to absorb this vitamin. Always consult with a physician before ordering extra vitamin D.
Most people love it: the sun. It is the best-known supplier of vitamin D. So during the summer months, you usually obtain enough. In addition, vitamin D is found in fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel and herring, red meat, eggs, dairy products and cereals.
When the sun shines, your skin makes vitamin D. Most people build up their supply of vitamin D in summer. In autumn and winter it is of course much less. Vitamin D also ensures a better resistance. It is also important for your muscles, bones and teeth. Vitamin D also makes it easier to absorb calcium. Calcium is important for maintaining strong bones. But the older you get, the harder it is for your body to absorb calcium. The Health Council advises especially seniors, pregnant women and people with dark skin color to take extra vitamin D throughout the year. You also need extra vitamin D after a weight loss surgery. A daily vitamin D supplement supplements a possible deficiency.
With vitamin B12 injections, you are administered vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 from FitForMe are tablets contain methylcobalamin. Our Vitamin B12 tablet is absorbed into the blood through your oral mucosa. The tablet is as effective as an injection.

You could use that, especially after a weight loss surgery when the risk of a vitamin deficiency is high. Vitamin B12 is available as a tablet in a delicious raspberry flavor. This tastes wonderful and is easy for your body to absorb.
Besides supplements, you’ll find vitamin B12 mostly in meat, eggs and dairy products like milk, yogurt and cheese. Do you not eat meat or other animal products? Then it may be good to vitamin B12 to take. Consult with a doctor first.
Vitamin B12 fulfills an important role in your body. For example, it promotes your energy metabolism and supports your immune system. Vitamin B12 also helps to reduce fatigue and supports the production of red blood cells. You can not do without it! Yet a vitamin B12 deficiency is common. Tiredness, low resistance or intestinal problems, are symptoms that fit a deficit. Even after a weight loss surgery you can have a deficiency of vitamin B12. Simply because of the surgery you eat less and take in less vitamin B12. With Vitamin B12 from FitForMe you fill a deficit. Our Vitamin B12 supplement is just as effective as injections.
Omega-3 Fish Oil is a source of Omega-3 fatty acids. In 1 capsule, there are 275 mg of EPA and DHA. That’s the correct dosage to benefit from all the beneficial health effects . Our fish oil is made from fatty fish such as sardines and anchovies. In addition, we have added vitamin E to our supplement. Because of vitamin E, fish oil stays fresh longer. With Omega-3 fish oil you can easily support your health. Now and in the future.
The largest source for Omega-3 is fatty fish. Examples include herring, sardines, salmon, anchovies and mackerel. They are loaded with essential fatty acids. That is why the Health Council advises to eat (fatty) fish twice a week. If you cannot manage that, Omega-3 fish oil is the right supplement. That way you get enough Omega-3 fatty acids.
Your heart and vessels provide your body with oxygen and important building blocks. You want to keep them healthy. EPA and DHA from fatty fish contributes to this. Are you struggling to eat fish a few times a week? Or do you get not enough fish because you have had a weight loss surgery? Our Omega-3 fish oil capsules are a source of EPA and DHA. So you can support your heart without feeling full.
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are Omega-3 fatty acids. These substances are incredibly important. Not only are they beneficial for your heart. They also contribute to normal fat levels in the blood. And DHA is beneficial for your brain and eyes. Impressive effects, right? That’s why it’s essential to take in enough EPA and DHA.
In addition to Fiber Complex, exercise is incredibly important. Try to get at least 30 minutes of exercise every day and work out twice a week. This is not only good for your intestines. Exercise also helps you feel fit and lose weight faster. In addition, drink 1.5 liters to 2 liters of water per day and eat high-fiber foods such as vegetables, fruits and whole grain products. Another important factor for a healthy intestines is to avoid stress. Your brain is strongly connected to your intestines. So make some time every day for necessary relaxation.
Many people have trouble eating enough fiber-rich foods. After a weight loss surgery, it can be extra difficult. You eat less and absorb fewer nutrients from food. This can cause all kinds of digestive problems. Think of a bloated feeling, intestinal cramps or constipation. Fiber Complex is a source of natural fibers. The fiber tablets support the normal functioning of your intestines. Therefore, Fiber Complex is a perfect addition to your daily diet.
In your intestines, food is digested and nutrients are absorbed into your body. The nutrients are converted back into energy and building blocks. You make your intestines happy with healthy, varied food and plenty of fiber. Fiber is essential for the good intestinal bacteria that live in your intestines. In addition, fiber absorbs moisture and keeps your intestines moving. This makes for a natural and regular bowel movement.
Calcium is essential for maintaining strong bones and teeth. You need it every day. With weight loss surgery, your calcium intake is reduced. This is because you eat little and absorb less nutrients. Calcium Plus as a supplement to your diet replenishes a calcium deficiency. Exactly how much calcium you need is different for everyone. It depends, for example, on your operation and the amount of calcium-rich food you eat every day. Consult a dietitian to find out what is best for you.
Calcium Forte contains twice as much calcium as Calcium Plus. In addition, Calcium Forte is a chewable tablet, available in 2 flavors: mint and orange. Calcium Plus is a tablet that needs to be swallowed. Do you have trouble swallowing? Choose a chewable tablet such as Calcium Forte. Both supplements contain the easily absorbable calcium citrate and vitamin D3 for a good absorption of calcium.
Besides calcium, iron is an important mineral that you need after weight loss surgery. That’s why iron is often included in multivitamins. Calcium limits the absorption of iron. For this reason it is not advisable to take calcium together with a multivitamin. Also, your body is not capable of absorbing more than 500mg of calcium at a time. Dairy products such as milk, cheese and yogurt contain calcium. Therefore, take a calcium tablet separately, at least 2 hours before or after a multivitamin or dairy products.
Calcium is essential for maintaining strong bones and teeth. You can’t live without it. With weight loss surgery, your calcium intake is reduced. This happens because you eat less and absorb fewer nutrients. Calcium Forte as a supplement to your diet replenishes a calcium deficiency.

Magnesium citrate is the form of magnesium that your body absorbs well. So it’s very valuable. Magnesium citrate only takes up a lot of space. That would mean that our multivitamins would be much larger. That makes it harder to consume. This is why we have not opted for this. Do you have a magnesium deficiency? Then we recommend using magnesium tablets in addition to a multivitamin.
Magnesium tablets contain magnesium citrate. This type of magnesium is easily absorbed by your body. However, magnesium citrate does take up a bit more space. Therefore, the tablets are slightly larger. Do you have trouble swallowing supplements? It helps to put your chin to your chest when swallowing. This makes the opening of your esophagus larger.
Magnesium from FitForMe replenishes a possible magnesium deficiency. It activates your natural energy and contributes, among other things, to maintaining strong, flexible muscles. Great if you’re planning on doing more physical activity again after your surgery. Our rich magnesium tablets contain a high dose of magnesium citrate. A form of magnesium that is easily absorbed by your body. Therefore, Magnesium is an optimal addition to your daily diet.
Magnesium is not something you produce yourself. Therefore, you need a supplement or food rich in magnesium. Vegetables like kale, broccoli and spinach, nuts, seeds and kernels are good sources of magnesium. It is also found in fish, beans and avocado. Too much caffeine (coffee and tea) and alcohol actually reduce magnesium absorption.
Magnesium is an important mineral. For example, it is beneficial for maintaining strong bones, teeth, muscles and your nervous system. It helps with fatigue and contributes to a clear mind. And we did not even mention all the health effects. A versatile all-rounder! Do you suffer from low energy, headaches, a restless feeling or sleeping problems? That could indicate a magnesium deficiency. A magnesium supplement fills the gap and supports your daily health. It helps you to get fit and keep on functioning.

You only need 1 capsule per day. Do you use WLS Forte or WLS Optimum and choose chewable tablets? Then you take 1 chewable tablet and 1 iron/copper tablet daily.

A multivitamin is not a quick fix or temporary solution. Moreover, your body has changed and will continue to do so. To combat vitamin and mineral deficiencies and feel fit, now and later, you need multivitamins permanently. So taking good care of yourself after a weight loss surgery is extremely important. Even if the operation was done some time ago.
Because of a weight loss surgery your body absorbs fewer vitamins and minerals. Unfortunately, it will continue to do so. To prevent deficiencies and complaints, take multivitamins every day, throughout your life. As an extra addition to your diet. To support your energy, balance and a strong body.
We recommend starting with WLS Start from 90 to 45 days before your surgery. Will you have surgery within 45 days? Then start the multivitamin for your surgery type 2 weeks before surgery. After surgery, your stomach and digestive system have changed. This affects how you tolerate nutrients. By starting multivitamins earlier, your body is more likely to respond well to them. This makes it easier to keep taking multivitamins after surgery. In the first two weeks after surgery, your body must recover and swallowing can be painful. In that period it is better not to take any multivitamins.
Taking vitamins is not always about taking more. In fact, too much can be harmful. It’s about getting the right vitamins and minerals in the right proportions. Multivitamins available at a drugstore or supermarket are designed for people with a healthy weight and intact digestive system. FitForMe believes that everyone needs something different.

We distinguish between a Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Bypass, Mini Gastric Bypass (also called One Anastomosis Bypass or Omega Loop Gastric Bypass), gastric band and Biliopancreatic Diversion/Duodenal Switch. In all of these surgeries, the surgeon makes your stomach smaller. You should discuss which surgery is best for you with a doctor.
A weight loss surgery is an operation to help you lose weight if you are severely overweight. We also call it bariatric metabolic surgery. A weight loss surgery is performed only when all other methods of weight loss fail. In most surgeries, the stomach is reduced in size and your digestive tract is adjusted. As a result, you eat less and feel less hungry. In this way you lose weight and complaints caused by obesity can be reduced or disappear altogether.
