Description

Details

This Bariatric Advantage Chewable formulation contains all natural forms of vitamins. Bariatric Advantage uses the most bio-available forms that are easy to digest and proven to absorb well. USP designated elements are used to address dissolution and disintegration. A micro-encapsulation process is used to eliminate the after taste commonly found in other multi-vitamin chewable formulas.

Some of the nutrients that make this multi-formula unique are:

  • Calcium Citrate — repeatedly shown to be the most bioavailable form of calcium in numerous scientific studies.
  • Chromium Picolinate (Nutrition 21) — this patented form of chromium has been demonstrated to support healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels, and help maintain lean body mass.
  • Natural forms of vitamin D, vitamin E and Beta-carotene — natural forms are the best absorbed and utilized by the body. We use only water-miscible fat-soluble vitamins.
  • Citrus Fruit Peel Extract and Citrus Bioflavonoids — plant antioxidants that support tissue healing.
  • Vanadium — a trace mineral that may help to support insulin sensitivity.
  • Contains comprehensive B complex.

Directions

Take 2 tablets daily or as directed by your physician.

French Bariatric Vitamin
by Myrna on 4/16/2016
These are my favorite vitamin--have taken them for 2 yrs now--started with Berry, but changed when French Vanilla became a choice.
Best of the vitamins!
by Monty on 6/19/2014
really good, very creamy, not tart at all. I am really glad to find a vitamin in this brand that does not make me pucker from it sourness. I would recommend the vanilla to anyone who does not like the tart taste of the others.
Adding the Calcium is the culprit to the new formula
by Robin Post OP GB-5yrs on 9/20/2013
I am looking forward to ordering this product for the 1st time but feel the price is just a tad high. In the past I purchased from a Chain Pharmacy/Drug store that stocks a similar formula for a much lower price of $27.98/180 chewables. I have found that when adding the Calcium it changed the formula making a chalkier texture and leaving an after taste that is not pleasant but is tolerable. However, I am pleased to have the Calcium added as this makes for 1 less medication I have to take. Thank you for all the reviews and knowledge that helped seal the deal.
I look forward to taking them
by JKate on 3/17/2013
I dislike liquid vitamins and I'm not sure how much of the nutrients I actually get from pill form vitamins. I read mixed reviews about these but needed a good gastric bypass specific vitamin. I like the orange ones...taste like the baby aspirin i used to get as a child. They are a little chalky but it doesn't bother me.This is my second bottle and I actually look forward to taking them.
the vitamins that I've used since surgery
by Wally on 3/4/2013
The price was fair and delivery fast.
Love the chewables
by Glo on 8/30/2012
This item was one of my first things to order. I absolutely love the "berry" flavor.
Actually They're Really Good (notes)
by on 8/30/2012
Feb 2012 - Male, 34, getting ready for my gastric bypass and was leary taking chewables after reading a lot of reviews. I've taken two of the major adult chewable multivitamins available over the counter and found them to be intolerable, disgusting, they leave a film in your mouth that doesn't rinse out. So I took a chance on these: I ordered the BERRY flavor and was shocked. Honestly, very flavorful and I personally thought (at least this flavor, I've only tried the Berry) it tasted like a chalky SweetTart that tasted good and went away soon after. It fact, it's pretty tart. So I immediately thought - this is a breeze, it's like eating a piece of candy everyday - awesome. So I'm glad I found these and hey, I paid what about $40 for 6 months worth (180 chewables). That's cheaper than Centrum.
Great flavor!
by E on 8/30/2012
I take these twice a day and have tried all the flavors. The vanilla is really delicious. It's a very nice change from the dry berry & citrus flavors.
Great product
by cooldawgs on 8/30/2012
I get the orange flavor and it's great, not too tart or citrus-y and it's absorbed quickly. The biggest plus is it doesn't taste like a cough drop!
Bariactric Advantage Multi-Vit
by Judy on 8/30/2012
I have tried quite a few Multi-Vit. and I feel these are the best out there. It's quick and easy to take on the run or not on the run and taste great as well.
A great vitamin
by Andy on 8/30/2012
I don't understand the complaints about taste, it's A VITAMIN, not a piece of candy. The taste is fine and it breaks up very well for Lap Band owners. BUT more importantly ... The Lab results on blood tests. I just had labs done for all vitamin levels (12 vials of blood taken) and all my vitamin levels were all in the middle of the recommended ranges. To me that is the test of a vitamins worth and the the slight power taste with can be washed away with a swig of water.
Better than Flintstones chewables
by Caren Hanley on 8/30/2012
I have tried this and it is sooooo much better than Flintstones complete chewable vitamins.

This product restored my color vision
by gej2 on 7/31/2012
Six moonths ago I was taking a different vitamin (Opurity) following bariatric bypass surgery. When the ophthalmologist tested my vision he found that I had lost some color vision in my right eye due to a vitamin deficiency. After taking these vitamins for 6 months, my vision was restored to normal. Do not know why this happened just know that it did. The doctor advised me to take these vitamins for the rest of my life.

mutli vit
by hel on 7/19/2012
I like that these are chewable, I keep getting different flavors so I don't get bored. (Updated on 7/20/2012.)
Wonderful Multi-Vit! Bariatric Advantage Multi-Formula Chewable
by Janice on 6/17/2012
I buy the Berry flavor and it tastes great! I can now swallow pills, but choose to continue with the chewables!
Bariatric Advantage Multi-Formula Chewable
by DJames on 4/30/2012
Its been 3 yrs since my surgery and I've been using this item. Berry is my favorite. Even though I don't have to use the chewable any longer, I enjoy taking this. Recently had my blood work done and received a great report.
Great Taste!
by Joe on 3/19/2012
The vitamins taste great and it is NO problem to take them everyday.
LOVE THEM
by tea on 2/25/2012
Have bought these for 3 years. I tried other brands but these are the best!!! Love the berry and the orange.
M-m-m Good
by Marye48 on 12/2/2011
I am two years out (Aug. 25, 2011)from bariatric bypass and just had my labs done. I have been on Bariatric Choice Multivitamins, chelated Iron, & Calcium Lozenges from the get-go and everything was great except for my stored iron. I contribute this to not taking the "chelated" Bariatric Choice iron, (strawberry is good) the last couple of months as my doctor suggested. I am back on it now. Apparently these folks know what they are doing.



Thanks Bariatric Choice for keeping me healthy,

Marye

Bariatric Advantage Multi-Formula Chewable
by Joy on 10/22/2011
I purchase these for my 22 year old daughter. She had bariatric bypass in 2010. I have been very concerned about vitamin deficiencies and these vitamins have kept her very healthy. She prefers the berry flavored vitamins. The price here is the best we have found; even paid more on ebay for these vitamins!
I've been taking these for 5 years
by triciababe on 10/14/2011
My hubby and I (post RNY, 6 & 5 years out) get our blood work done every year) and it's always been perfect. We like the orange flavor and we each take 2 per day (as well as the BA calcium). We did try the berry multi and it was okay, but we prefer the orange flavor. LOVE these multis. (Updated on 10/15/2011.)
EXCELLENT!
by Dmccoy on 4/14/2011
The Berry is EXCELLENT. No grittiness left in the mouth, no nasty after-taste and you don't need to take 20 a day!
Bariatric Advantage Complete Multi Formula
by BMK on 2/19/2011
I have been told that my hair is less gray, and that I look healthier! (Even tho I don't take it like I should.) After reading your reviews, I will take it like I should.
These are GREAT
by carol1645 on 1/13/2011
These vitamins are the greatest. They taste good and do not leave an after taste. I have been taking them since my surgery 8 months ago. I have tried other chewables and they just do not measure up. Thanks for having this product available.
Great product
by Cin in Ohio on 1/11/2011
I'm 2.5 years out and still have major mal-absorption problems. When I take another multi-vitamin my blood work shows it. I have the best results when I take this multi-vitamin. It's easy to take and the taste is good. Thanks for having a great product!
Best vitamins for GBS patients
by weesieann on 12/28/2010
I'm 58 years old, 15 months out of surgery, and must now take vitamins twice a day for mal-absorption reasons. If you hate that horrible vitamin taste like I do, these chewable vitamins are a God-send! The taste makes it easy to incorporate taking them into my daily health routine. And all of my nutritional levels have been great at every check-up. My overall health is excellent, with not so much as even the sniffles since my surgery, and I will continue to take these vitamins forver as I believe they are a huge benefit to my well-ness.
Taste great!!!
by Alley on 1/6/2010
I ordered the watermelon flavor right after surgery and didn't like the taste of it. The orange flavor rocks!!! I don't mind taking it twice a day.



My lab work will be done in a few weeks and hopefully I've been getting all the vitamins I need.
Bariatric Advantage Multi-Formula
by kimmy on 8/23/2009
This tastes great!.....
great stuff
by niknik on 8/15/2009
These vitamins have been a part of my daily routine since I had my surgery last year. They are a must-have for post-ops.
Awesome Taste
by Diana on 3/23/2009
I was a bit concerned about the taste when I ordered the multi-vitamins but when I received them I started taking them the same day. Now, I don't forget to take them at all because they are great tasting. It was difficult for me to take my multi-vit with water prior because of it being in pill form and I had to drink so much water with it that I felt full. Now I can just chew my multi-vit. Thanks Bariatric Choice!
Bariatric Advantage Multi-Formula Chewable (180 Count)
by Nan on 1/5/2009
I have been using this product for 18 months and am very happy with the results. My labs have been were they are suppose to be and have had not deficiencies. The dosage is two a day and both can be taken at the same time. You do not have to take them in divided doses. I would recommend them highly. (Updated on 1/6/2009.)
Great tasting vitamins
by Charlene on 5/18/2008
These are great tasting, so they are easy to take.

Good vitamins
by Janis on 4/5/2008
I am four months out from an RNY and just tested for vitamin levels. I have been taking this twice a day since the week after surgery. All my levels were great except Thiamin, which was a little too high! These really work! I will still take them once a day.

Tastes better than most
by Kim on 1/26/2017
Although these are dry, they taste much more palatable than the other weird and 'artificial' fruity flavors. These are medically recommended and approved and are essential to good health so taking them is not an option. Finding ones that are pleasant tasting will be the challenge, and the Bariatric Advantage French Vanilla are the best I've tried of all brands and flavors.
Bariatric Advantage Multi-Formula Chewable
by on 8/30/2012
Very good for post op patients but after a while i did get tired of the taste but its a multi-vitamin and not candy. I will purchase this brand again but I wish the price was lower. The biggest plus for me is that I didn't have to take 6 a day.
Much better than others
by kelliott on 8/5/2012
These are by far the best tasting chewables I've tried yet. They do have a bit of a chalky taste to them, but not nearly as bad as some others I've tried. They break down easily and the taste is not bad either. I ordered the berry.
Does make me feel up to snuff.
by lynne on 7/30/2012
I'm 3 yrs out, have had some problems with anemia and skin issues with OTC vitamins. These seem to help me feel better, I read the reviews and ordered the berry and really like the flavor, but......I really hate the grit when chewing them. Feels like sand. I chase them with my chewable iron cause I really like their flavor and texture and need the iron to balance my deficiency there. Bariatric Choice rocks.
Good Vitamins, taste so so
by Sip on 6/14/2012
I like the vitamins. Not fond of the orange flavor so will try the berry next time.
These are okay
by feathersnpaws on 10/18/2011
I have been taking the orange flavored multi chewables now for a few years and can still tolerate them. Mind you.. they are not great but I can stand them a lot better than I can the calcium chocolate lozenges. I have recommended the chewable multi's to friends and they have also been happy with them.
A little chalky, but good!
by JenJen on 7/5/2011
I really like this chewable multivitamin. It tastes pretty good, just a little chalky. I've taken it after GB surgery almost two years ago and my blood work has always been good. I would definitely recommend it!
Multi
by ljs911 on 4/7/2011
Good, vanilla taste could be a little stronger
A tasty product
by Silver144 on 2/14/2011
The berry flavor is excellent, with no aftertaste and much less chalky than other products. Also not sour like some.
Multivitamin
by debshaw on 4/21/2009
My labs needed a bit tweeking so I changed to this product...wow so great. The tropical isn't my favorit flavor so thank God for 2 more choices....hope the berry will rock my world.
good bariatric vitamins
by Melissa on 3/3/2008
These seem to be a pretty good bariatric multivitamin. They are a little sweet and somewhat gritty, but go down pretty good and don't have that horrible vitamin taste.

BA brand
by Brenda on 4/16/2013
Well, I have always loved the Bariatric Advantage brand. It was the first brand I tried after my Gastric Bypass. I liked ALL the flavors. Well I don't know what happened, but with this last order, (I got the orange flavor) and as I chewed them, they are so "dry" that I have to drink a huge sip of water to get it all down. I almost gagged. The formula is the same as far as the nutrients and vitamins go, but the taste is GONE! PLUS, I have noticed that they have stained my dentures a bit. I would send them back, but I really need the vitamins. I will go with a different brand next time. I am disappointed!
new formula terrible taste
by nando on 3/27/2013
I used to LOVE LOVE these vitamins. . . however, the formula must have been changed. Now instead of tasting kinda like sweet tarts, it now has a more chalky, less flavorable taste. Unfortunately i bought two bottles which i will use. When these run out, I may purchase regular store gummy vitamins rather than take a chance with these again.
Well Balanced Formula
by lovey on 8/30/2012
I have taken the Orange Chewable BA for two years since my GB. My Dr. and I absolutely love the lab results! Whenever I have used another brand my appetite seems to be off the charts but with BA the blend of Chromium Piclonate with the other vitamins helps my digestive system to get the most out of what I eat so I don't have near the cravings or appetite as with other vitamins. I will not run out of these again! Thank you!
What the heck happened???
by Amee Lightsey on 8/30/2012
I had to muscle my way through the last bottle. I noticed the bottle looked different and thought it was just new packaging. As soon as I opened up the bottle and the smell got me, I had to recheck the bottle to make sure I received the right vitamin. These were my favorite and I looked forward to taking my pills because I loved these vitamins. Now they taste so disgusting, very medicinal and just unpalatable. They also leave a weird film in your mouth. I basically chewed them really fast and swallowed them down with my protein drink. Will not buy again until I hear that the formula is back where it should be.
Chalky
by Billzer on 4/3/2011
Chalky. The flavor was fruity and not bad, but the texture was awful. They cost so much I will have to take them until they are gone, which I dont look forward to.
Didn't Like these very much
by Lisa on 3/24/2011
I didn't like these very much. I plan to stick to my centrum chewables.
Essential multi chewable French vanilla or orange
by Beverly on 7/8/2015
One of these has a terrible smell. I miss the other berry that was taken off the list. My whole bedroom n drawer smells from this vitamin. I ha to order more of the complete multi formula as it is the only flavor left with 1000 in vitamin d3 complete b complex essential trace minerals

Flavor n smell is ugh.
So glad I'm almost done with these
by WouldYouEva on 8/30/2012
Chalky, with weird after-taste. Several times I've choked these down, only to have them come up again. My next vitamin purchase will be a non-chewable kind.
DISGUSTING!
by Sharon on 8/30/2012
These USED to be my favorite. Since the manufacturer changed the formula, they are DISGUSTING! I feel misled because this manufacturer comes to my bariatric support group meetings and never mentioned the change. They also didn't mention that the chocolate mint ones were discontinued due to a recall. I'm starting to question the integrity of the manufacturer.
Chalky and Overpriced
by Lil M on 8/30/2012
Very chalky and I did not know I had to take extra calcium and iron. I have to spend over $50 per month? Ridiculous. I feel mis-informed: Would not recommend to anyone.
Formula changed
by Denise on 8/12/2011
The manufacturer has recently changed the formula on this multivitamin rendering it very unpalatable. The texture is firmer and grittier, it now has a medicinal odor and the taste is really foul with a very lingering after taste. I know its a vitamin and I don't expect it to taste great, but I do want something I can swallow without gagging. BC was great about helping me find another multivitamin. I would no longer recommend this product.
AWFUL taste!
by Jacquie on 8/9/2011
This is my 2nd bottle and it taste WAY different from the 1st. This bottle has a terrible metal taste and after taste. It is very difficult to get down. Other than that, blood work is always good. If you can gag through 45 seconds every morning, it's not bad!I probably will not order another bottle.
AWFUL TASTE
by Jack on 5/2/2011
I chewed one tablet and had to spit it out. Very bitter, chalky and a bad after taste. I will not order these products again! Waste of money
Excellent Vitamin...Poor taste
by MagMar on 8/5/2010
I'm 6 weeks post-op for WLS and everytime I try to chew this vitamin, I gag. Now I'm sitting here with a huge bottle of vitamins that I can't use. Bariatric Advantage wouldn't even respond to my email. I will never purchase any more items from them, not only because of the taste, but because of their horrible customer service.
