Recommendations for a gummy multivitamin



Recommended Posts

The chewables are making me sick. Anyone take gummies?

My doctor said gummies are fine. I take the OneADay Women's Vitacraves.

Should just check with yours, since they all seem so different in opinions. I have been able to take them since two days after surgery with no problems.

My doc said no gummies, cause they can't be sure of how much you're absorbing from them

Ditto. The length it takes to absorb a Gummy as opposed to other types is much longer and our tummies simply don't get it all absorbed.

I take flinstone complete. Still not the most tasty but it is better than any of the many bariatric ones I've tried.

I take gummies and have had two PERFECT blood tests in the three months since surgery. I also started taking a Gummy probiotic and have not had "bathroom" or intestinal issues since I started taking them. At my followup last week, I complained about taking the Calcium and they even recommended the gummy calcium - even if it isn't citrate - she said it should be fine.

I have my first follow up Appt on Thursday even though today is my two week mark. I'm going to talk to them about it then, I know how important taking Vitamins is on your body I'm a big advocate for them but I simply cannot take these chewables anymore. I even tried crushing them and mixing them in my drinks. No luck.

Are the one a days good?

Some of the gummie Vitamins are high in calories and carbs when you add up how many you have to take. My Nut and Surgeon does not allow them but I know some do. ;)

Just be sure if you switch to gummies that you get your Iron in somehow. Sorry the chewables didn't work for you.

I take the chewable Iron without any problems, it's the oddest thing.

We have taken Vitafusion multi cites for years, available at costo and on Amazon. I will have my first post-op blood test tomorrow, but historically they have worked and our Vitamin levels have always been good. It helps that they are absolutely delicious :)

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!
