BN Cal - Chewable Calcium
3 Pack (270 little chocolate treats)
BN Cal is a calcium Citrate supplement designed for you along your Bariatric/WLS journey.
Adequate dietary calcium after surgery, and throughout life is required to maximise bone density and prevent bone loss resulting in Osteoporosis. After Weight Loss Surgery, your body's ability to absorb calcium is reduced from around 40% to only 7-9% so daily supplementation is required.
Your needs increases after your Bariatric Surgery and women's calcium requirements are increased after menopause.
BN Cal provides 200mg of elemental calcium per tablet and we recommend 2-5 tablets daily.
Calcium is required for muscle contraction and supports the health and function of the nervous system. Calcium citrate showed the best outcomes for patients after WLS as it can be absorbed in malabsorptive states.
We’ve created a chewable tablet to assist its absorption with Calcium Citrate and Colecalciferol forms of nutrients which may assist in preventing bone mineral loss - especially important as age increases.
BN Cal comes in versatile smaller does, so you can take regular doses to keep up your Calcium intake.
The creamy chocolate taste makes it an enjoyable way to meet your Calcium and Vitamin D needs every day.
Each chewable tablet contains Calcium citrate tetrahydrate 948mg
Equiv. Calcium 200mg Colecalciferol 4.1micrograms (Vitamin D 164IU)
Contains Lactose and Fructose.
Products containing mannitol and xylitol may have a laxative effect or cause diarrhea. Vitamins can only be of assistance if the dietary vitamin intake is inadequate
Your ability to absorb vitamins post surgery has forever changed. Speak to your Bariatric / Weight Loss Surgery dietitian to find the best daily dose for you.
Congratulations on taking the next step in meeting your health goals with BN Multi's
