Main benefits for WLS patients: BN Caps help prevent nutritional deficiency, while BN Cal help prevent calcium deficiency, helping you avoid health complications

BN Caps are bariatric or WLS multi-vitamins. The capsules include both vitamin B12 and iron in the recommended doses. Because of this, BN Caps are designed to help you meet your nutritional requirements post weight loss surgery.

Each BN Multi capsule is designed for use during your (WLS) weight loss surgery journey, provided you prefer a capsule following your first few months of taking chewable multi-vitamins.

The BN Caps formula is designed with the highest quality, most bioavailable nutrient forms. It also includes trace minerals and a comprehensive B-complex. BN Multi's are flavourless, contain no food colouring or sweeteners, and are GLUTEN-FREE!

BN Cal is a chewable calcium citrate supplement designed to support you during your bariatric or (WLS) weight loss surgery journey.

Adequate dietary calcium intake after surgery, and throughout life, is required to maximise bone density and to prevent bone loss - which can result in osteoporosis.  After (WLS) 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 increase after bariatric surgery, and women's calcium requirements are increased after menopause. BN Cal provides 200mg of elemental calcium per tablet, and we recommend 2 to 5 tablets daily.

Calcium is required for muscle contraction, and supports the health and function of the nervous system. Chewable calcium citrate showed the best outcomes for patients after WLS as it can be absorbed in malabsorptive states.

We've created a chewable calcium tablet to assist you in the absorption of calcium citrate and cholecalciferol forms of nutrients, which may assist in preventing bone mineral loss. This is especially important as age increases.

BN Cal comes in versatile smaller doses, so you can take regular doses to keep your calcium intake up. The creamy chocolate taste makes it an enjoyable way to meet your calcium and vitamin D needs every day.

Each chewable calcium tablet contains:

- calcium citrate tetrahydrate (948mg)

- equiv. calcium (200mg)

- cholecalciferol (vitamin D 164 IU) (4.1 micrograms)

- lactose and fructose

Products containing mannitol and xylitol may have a laxative effect or cause diarrhea. Vitamins can only be of assistance if your dietary intake of vitamins is inadequate.

Your ability to absorb vitamins post (WLS) weight loss surgery has forever changed. Speak to your bariatric or 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.
