KNOXVILLE, TN -- (Marketwire) -- 01/08/13 -- Dr. Stephen Boyce, a Knoxville bariatric surgeon, has created a multivitamin specifically with the post-bariatric surgery patient in mind. As a practitioner of bariatric surgery for over 20 years, he understands the serious nutritional deficiencies that patients who undergo significant weight loss procedures can develop. In response, Dr. Boyce has designed his line of New Life Bariatric Supplements -- supplements that are created with pharmaceutical grade, bio-available compounds.
As part of his dedication to patient care, Dr. Boyce says he kept patient cost in mind while developing the multivitamins. Using New Life Multivitamins, patients can expect to spend about $27-$30 per month for their vitamin and mineral supplementation -- about 30% less than what they would spend on other bariatric brands on the market for the same content of vitamins and minerals. Along with New Life Bariatric Vitamin Supplements, New Life also offers protein supplements through their website at the cheapest price available on the Internet.
The digestive system is very sensitive after bariatric surgery. New Life Powder Multivitamins are powder supplements that are easier to swallow than traditional pills or capsules. They are also not as harsh on the digestive tract. Patients are able to mix a scoop of the powder into a few ounces of water or add the powder to a protein shake or yogurt and receive all the necessary daily vitamins without the hassle of a pill. After four weeks, Dr. Boyce gives his patients the option of remaining on the powder or switching to a tablet.
Immediately following surgery, supplements should make up a large portion of a patient's nutrition. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies can lead to serious medical conditions such as anemia, osteoporosis, bone pain and fractures, encephalopathy (brain dysfunction), and paralysis. New Life Multivitamins are the only bariatric supplements that meet or exceed the recommendations of the ASMBS, OS, and the AACE. Dr. Boyce, a practitioner of Knoxville bariatric surgery, says that using New Life Bariatric Supplements is often times less expensive than eating food. Dr. Boyce's line of New Life Bariatric Multivitamins were created for his patients specifically to offer them a more affordable, effective, and simple way of getting the nutrition they need both before and after surgery.
