Main benefits for WLS patients: helps prevent calcium deficiency
BN Cal is a chewable calcium tablet designed to support you during your bariatric or (WLS) weight loss surgery journey.
Why calcium is important:
Adequate dietary calcium intake after surgery, and throughout life, is required to maximise bone density and 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 around 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 two to five chewable calcium tablets daily.
Calcium is required for muscle contraction. It also supports the health and function of the nervous system. Chewable calcium tablets showed the best outcomes for patients after WLS as they can be absorbed in malabsorptive states.
We've created a chewable calcium tablet to assist you in the absorption of calcium citrate and cholecalciferol 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 BN Cal 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 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.
