Tasty but complete multi vitamin



Recommended Posts

so, I'm starting to get sick of the Bariatric Advantage multi flavor. The problem with most of the non-chewables are that they are so huge and the tasty gummies don't have much if any Iron.

Anyone know of a good one with plenty of Iron?

My surgeon and nutritionist have me take children's Flinestones complete chewable vitamins.< /p>

I take two with a meal.

They have Iron in them that is easier to digest.

I buy them at costco because that's the best deal but you can find them at Target, Walmart or any pharmacy.

Also Celebrate Vitamins has chewable multi Vitamin, they also have calcium citrate chewables and soft chews (I use these). They have B12 that I use.

These are just suggestions.

I second Flintstones. They don't taste too bad, especially compared to the other chewables I've tried. (I'm not allowed gummies at this stage anyway, so I haven't even looked at them.) I can usually find coupons for the Flintstones Vitamins, and they frequently go BOGO at our local grocery, so they're a pretty decent bargain as well.

I too am a Flintstones fan. It was suggested by my surgery team. I chew 2 a day. I especially enjoyed them when I was on pure liquid and mushy post-op phases because I got to crunch on something lol

Mine are Centrum Flavor Burst Adult Chews. They look like small gumballs, but the dosage is 4 per day. I would rather take these than some horse pill. I get them at Walgreens. They have Vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E, Folic Acid, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Iodine and Zinc.

When I went through my surgery, several on the board recommended trader joe high potency chewable. I take 2 of them and also viactiv chewable calcium(tastes like a tootsie roll) ,my surgeon supports what I take and also said that spreading out the doses during the day helps with absorption.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
