Calcium is an essential mineral and is a critical component to maintaining strong bones. It also helps regulate muscle function, maintain a healthy metabolism and promote normal nerve and immune function.
Bariatric chewable calcium | Bariatric Fusion deficiencies are common after bariatric surgery, especially gastric bypass. This occurs because the main area of the stomach that is responsible for calcium absorption is bypassed by surgery and stomach acid no longer produces enough to support adequate absorption.
Choosing the right form of calcium is important. It’s recommended that bariatric patients take calcium citrate instead of calcium carbonate. This is because calcium citrate does not require an acid stomach environment and it is more readily absorbed by the body.
