Description

Details

Iron is an essential mineral that relies heavily on adequate contact with stomach acid for absorption in the digestive tract. For this reason, many patients who have undergone gastric bypass surgeries develop iron deficiency. In a state of iron deficiency, it is best to supplement iron separately from other minerals to reduce competition for absorption. Calcium, for example, can impair the absorption of iron. This high quality chewable iron is made from a special very soluble form that has almost no iron taste— in fact, most people who taste it can't believe it's iron at all. This formula also contains vitamin C and FOS, which have been shown to support iron absorption.

Directions

best tasting iron supplements
by Shelley on 3/15/2008
The best tasting iron supplements you can have. They actually taste like sweet tart candies. My iron levels went from extremely low to normal limits within two months of using this product. I will always choose this item.

The best iron ever!
by Flo on 10/24/2009
I have tried other brands of chewable iron, and they were so awful I simply could not tolerate them. This is fantastic! Tastes great, with absolutely NO icky metallic aftertaste. I highly reccomend this product.
Good!
by jec on 3/5/2011
Very good, small tablet that tastes pretty good. I would definitely recommend these to anyone!
Finally....Excellent !
by Jinklins on 3/10/2011
These are wonderful. They taste like candy, sweet tarts. I usually gag on chewable items that but these are great. Totally an answer to prayer. Love them.
To the rescue!
by LaurieS on 3/14/2011
I'm extremely anemic and in need of iron. My doctor who knew I had my gastric bypass was stumped with what to give me. My iron levels were so low that there was talk of getting a blood transfusion! I said "NO" I will try the liquid iron and I couldn't handle the taste, so I stopped taking it. I came across these very tasty iron supplements and they are something I look forward to taking every morning. I am having my iron levels checked again at the end of the month. I'm crossing my fingers that these are working for me and I don't need the transfusion my doctor mentioned.
Great
by mimi on 3/20/2011
This Iron is great. Finally an Iron that tastes good, doesn't stain my teeth, hurt my stomach or constipate me. :)
Excellent!
by Dmccoy on 4/14/2011
Enough said.
doesn't stain
by Kristi on 6/12/2011
Acceptable taste. Very easy to chew & swallow and doesn't stain my teeth.
Taste Good!!!
by Lora on 7/5/2011
This item taste good, and it doesn't have the bad after taste that I was getting with my other iron supplement.
This item a miracle!!!
by MaryVL on 8/30/2012
My bariatric doctor was clear that both the multi vitamins and iron supplements are to be chewable for better absorption.

For 2 years, I've just barely endured the lemon-lime flavored iron, well aware that chewable iron that is tasty is like asking for a miracle. Not only do the lemon-lime iron tabs taste horrible, but they melt! YECK! Desperate for a tolerable alternative, I read the other reviews on this product, ordered it, and kept my fingers crossed.

Well HOORAY! The other reviewers are right! This supplement may not taste exactly like 'passion fruit', but it is EXCELLENT, with NO taste of iron!!!

Iron supplement
by Debi on 8/30/2011
It has been difficult to keep my iron levels "normal" because of the taste or side effects of many other iron supplement. This one tastes good and does not cause any stomach problems. I am 3 years post op from gastric bypass...this is very important toward healthy maintenance.
Bariatric Advantage Chewable Iron, 29mg, Passion Fruit
by Mickerbud on 10/20/2011
I am very pleased with the grape flavor. It is not chalky at all nor does it leave a gritty residue after chewing. I wish I could find a multivitamin in chewable form that tasted as good as these. I can barely stand the ones I am taking now!
Only Iron Supplement that DID NOT Give me HEARTBURN!
by Carmen on 8/30/2012
I was found iron deficient and tried numerous iron supplements..they all gave me terrible heartburn. This was the first iron supplement that didn't give me heartburn and I am extremely sensitive...you are a lifesaver!
best
by lippylou on 11/17/2011
Lot of the products are good but these iron is the best I have found. Use them for many years. Shipping is high if you don't spend over fifty dollars.
Very good!
by Basketcase on 11/18/2011
I have been fighting anemia since shortly after surgery. I needed an easily digested ferrous fumarate supplement. And this one tastes decent, too! I go Monday to see how my anemia is doing. Hopefully this has helped! The flavor is good and it seems to digest quite well.
Bariatric Advantage Chewable Iron
by hel on 7/19/2012
like this very much, taste great.only thing wrong with them is if it gets humid they get all soft and kind of melt. (Updated on 7/20/2012.)
Great product
by Randal J. on 1/2/2012
This is the same brand that my doctors office sells, but at a better price! It taste good and i have had no problems with the product.
Like candy
by Rabid Kittens on 3/20/2012
These things taste just like a SMARTIE!!!!! Far better than the strawberry. I could literally eat these like candy all day long. No after taste at all.
Excellent
by Barb on 6/5/2012
Keeps my iron up and tastes great.
Lifesaving iron supplement
by brenda on 6/20/2012
This product is the best iron supplement choice because it has a pleasant flavor and no aftertaste. After surgery, chewables are the safest and easiest way to get supplements and this is the way to go. Thanks, Bariatric Advantage for helping me stay healthy.
Passion Fruit Flavored Chewable Iron
by babymags on 9/13/2012
I have been taking the Iron for over a year but this was the first time I ordered the passion fruit. I wanted to try something different and I am glad that I did. These taste great and are chewable which is perfect for me!
Passion Fruit Chewable Iron
by Kathleen on 1/14/2013
I tried many different Iron pills and liquid and this is by far the best one. Having to take iron twice a day and others just made me want to gag. Passion Fruit tastes like the Sweet Tart or Smartie Candy. It does not leave that after taste that so many others did. I will not buy anything else but these. Thanks guys for making an awesome product!
Great taste, quality product
by Donna on 1/31/2013
I have been trying different chewable tablets and liquid iron supplements for several years now, I am post gastric bypass surgery over 2 years, doing great. This is the best tasting and most tolerable iron I have found, it is like eating a sweet tart. Love them!
very convenient
by Karen V on 4/20/2013
When I purchased my other vitamins from the dr., I forgot and did not purchase the iron. I found that buying them on line was very convenient and they came in just a few days. This is an option that I will consider if I can not get to the drs. when I am running low.
Great Taste
by Melissa on 4/21/2013
Of all the Bariatric Advantage Iron supplements the passion fruit taste the best. I have history of anemia, so the 29 mg per dose is perfect!
Great iron chewables
by Cynthia on 6/20/2013
I find these to be very sweet, like eating a piece of candy but I guess if it gets me to take my iron, that can't be a bad thing. There is a slight iron aftertaste but that can't be totally avoided with iron pills and it is not so strong that it keeps me from wanting to take my iron. All and all a great choice for those that are anemic like me and NEED a supplement.
TERRIFIC PRODUCT!!!
by Kim on 8/29/2013
LOVE this product!!! My nutritionist gave us a bag full of various products to try prior to Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy surgery. This chewable iron tablet was in the bag. I tried it & it was DELICIOUS!!! Wonderful taste - no aftertaste - easy to chew - not chalky!!!
Chewable iron - it works!
by Elisa on 12/26/2013
A few years after surgery, my iron levels had plummeted. Taking these iron chewables twice a day brought me back to normal levels, and I've been taking them ever since. Compared to other iron supplements, these don't taste too bad, either. Highly recommended.
Great taste
by Tonya on 4/16/2014
This is one of the few supplements I don't dread taking!
Excellent
by Robin on 1/24/2015
I paired these with Bariatric Advantage Multi Vitamin in Berry flavor. Tastes like a sweet tart. So happy with them that I've never tried any other iron supplement.
Best tasting iron
by Sandra on 2/15/2015
I have tried other Bariatric iron which tasted horrible but this one tastes the great. I will continue to order it.
Good supply of iron!!
by Susan on 7/11/2016
I take one everyday and they work really well. I won't change from these. They work fine!!
Best tasting
by Rhonda on 9/19/2016
The Passion Fruit flavor is my favorite...tastes so good. I couldn't handle the Lemon Lime...too sour for me. These are wonderful and get my levels up.
Iron chewable tab
by Dee on 4/13/2017
Great tasting Iron chewable that does not upset your stomach.
Work the best for me
by gayle on 8/18/2017
I have taken these for years since my gastric bypass. I stopped a few months ago and became very anemic. My bad. Back on them.
Good taste, no sucralose, dosage could be higher
by ljfnord on 12/5/2010
The taste is indeed close to a sweet-tart, and rarely does it leave a metallic aftertaste if you take a sip of something liquid, swish it around a bit, and then swallow after taking the pill. The only downside is the dosage - the doctor says I need a large dose for iron-deficiency anemia, as found in their 60mg tablets. The only problem is that I'm allergic to sucralose (a.k.a. Splenda) and the 60mg tablets have sucralose in them. That means I'm stuck taking two of the 29mg pills and spending more overall since this is the highest dose they make that doesn't have sucralose.



BA staff - Could we please get a "sucralose-free" section or label or search function? I know I'm not the only person here who's allergic to Splenda, and I'd like to be 100% sure what I'm buying isn't going to make me break out in a full-body rash for two weeks.
Not bad!
by carol on 10/24/2011
I was really surprised that these tasted so good! I dissolve one in my mouth along with my berry or watermelon flavored multi to improve their flavors. I only occasionally get a hint of that Geritol flavor. These are definitely worth a try!
Actually "Yummy!"
by Jenny on 8/30/2012
A chewable vitamin that actually tastes like a candy! I would highly recommend these vitamins to friends!
