Running Vitamin List

Running list fmi (for my information):

Multi-Vitamins:

  • Prenatal
  • GNC Ultra Mega vitamin
  • Flintstones Vitamins
  • Advance formula “Centrum”… one a day chewable
  • Women’s formula generic Multi-vitamin once per day
  • Optisource. It has calcium, iron and B12 included. They are citrus flavored
  • Bariatric Advantage Chewable Multi-Vitamin (tropical flavor) – these are designed to have more bioavailability and to be more easily absorbed by bariatric patients
  • Bariatric Advantage Chewable Iron – 29 mg with Vit. C (passion fruit flavor) – these are non-constipating and designed to be absorbed more easily by bariatric patients

Calcium:

  • Viactiv calcium chews.( These are carbonate calcium chews. We should take citrate for proper absorption)
  • Cal citrate Chews
  • Caltrate calcium chew
  • 600 mg of Calcium Citrate twice per day (to maximize absorption I take these at least an hour before I take any other vitamins – this is two tablets two times a day for a total of 1,200 mg

Iron:

  • Please note: You should take a stool softener or fiber supplement to keep you from becoming constipated. If you take iron, do not take it with calcium, they will cancel each other out.
