Weight Loss Supplements

A word regarding supplements. I feel certain supplements are mandatory for everyone. I also feel that a few people should have more supplements then others. The difficulty is finding the people that need additional supplements and finding high quality products.

In my opinion there are a lot of poor quality supplements in the market today. It is difficult to separate the good quality products from the bad.

Bariatric Advantage:

Specializing in surgical weight loss malnutrition and supplemental support. They offer a full line of vitamins, minerals and protein products designed specifically for gastric band, gastric sleeve, and gastric bypass patients. For More information, click the following link:

Individual analysis is the only way I know to identify a person’s nutritional needs. If this testing defines an area of deficiency then this should be addressed with either dietary changes or individual high quality supplementation until that parameter is normalized. Nutritional deficiencies can cause a wide variety of adverse health issues. Ignorance or avoidance of deficiencies leads to adverse health issues like decreased energy, chronic pain syndromes, hair loss, poor skin and nail health, muscle wasting, heart disease, joint disease, and poor healing to name just a few. I have treated numerous patients with supplements and have found that sometimes the addition of a few products has enabled patients to lose weight more efficiently, resolved co-morbidities like hypertension, joint pain, poor blood glucose intolerance, lower cholesterol, etc. I feel it is important to understand supplements so we can live longer healthier more productive lives.

Feel free to view the sites and order online or through our office. Let me know how you feel regarding the products you use and feel free to ask questions regarding supplements you are unsure about.

Have a wonderful and productive day.
