Vitacraves And Other Gummy Vitamins


14 posts in this topic

Saw on the label of the vitacraves that 2 is a serving ... Since we're suppose to have 2 multi Vitamins a day does that mean to take 4 of the gummies a day? My nutritionist has me terrified about Vitamin deficiency :( soo how many are the rest of you taking?

I had trouble getting the Bariatric Vitamins down. I don't know what the deal was but I could not tolerate them. You would need to take 4 a day.

Here is what I take:

Morning: 2 Gummy vitamins; 1 sublingual B-12; 1 dissolvable Biotin tablet; 1 chewy Vitamin D with Calcium

Before Dinner: 2 gummy vitamins; 1 dissolvable Biotin tablet; 1 chewy Vitamin D with calcium

I am beginning my 6th week post op and this seems to be working for me. I hope that helps some!

I am the same way with the Bariatric Advantage chewable Vitamins and am out about 3 months. This issue has been bothering me since about 3 weeks post op.

Sometimes they make me absolutely want to throw up. I have noticed they are easier to take if after Breakfast and before any other Vitamins. I also take c, d, omega3, calcium chews, B12 and b50. If i take too many of these together with the Multivitamin it is very easy to get sick and start gagging with dry heaves.

B12 and calcium chews are mostly ok if taken in isolation, an hour after Multivitamin. There must be too much of something that the sleeve does not like. It is a little frustrating because it is better for me to take them all at once. I have also tried to take something instead of Multivitamins like green vibrance.

Any advice?

I just threw away the Bariatric Advantage Vitamins - horrible! I bought Centrum chewables. I like those vs many others since they also contain essential minerals. Many multi-vitamins (including most "gummies") don't have any minerals. The Centrum aren't too bad.

where do you get these gummy vitamins? I can't stand the multi Vitamin chewables. I like the sublingual B12. I also have caramel chewy Calcium ones....

I buy almost everything I need for Vitamins off Amazom.com.

Yup, these chewable tablets were tossed the moment I got the Celebrate multivitamin capsules. Gummy Multivitamins are probably ok, but I am unable to find a sugar free version. I don't really feel like adding more calories.

My surgeon & NUT told me no gummies, for various reasons but the main one being that they are inferior. They recommended anything chewable/dissolvable, including flintstones chewables (just have to double the dose).

I know I've seen the Gummy Vitamins at walmart/target, our drug store, GNC & just about anywhere else that has Vitamins.

Thanks for the tip on the bariatric advantage! Guess I won't waste my money on those. :)

I am also wondering..... I take Centrum chewable and I thought I read somewhere to take 2 for us. But bottle says take 1 ? Should I be taking two? I can't chew they gag me. I crush and do in Protein shake.
