BN Chocolate - Calcium + Vitamin D

Rated 4.9 out of 5
Based on 155 reviews
Product Description

After Weight Loss Surgery (WLS), getting enough calcium is a real challenge.

Before surgery, we absorb about 40% of calcium. After WLS, calcium absorption is heavily reduced to as low as 9%. Even an "on point" diet with dairy won't be enough; that’s where daily calcium supplementation of BN Chocolate is needed to make up the shortfall.

It's a delicious way to get the calcium you need every day. BN Chocolate is formulated to support your increased needs after surgery. The ASMBS Nutritional Guidelines for WLS indicate a calcium citrate supplement is required daily for Bariatric patients. Calcium citrate is more easily absorbed than other forms of calcium.

Calcium is a critical nutrient as over 99% of calcium is found in bones and teeth. It plays a vital role in promoting healthy teeth and bones, muscle contraction, fat digestion, protein metabolism and a healthy nervous system.

 

Ingredients

Dark chocolate: sugar, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, emulsifiers (soy lecithin), natural vanilla

Calcium Citrate 2350mg

Allergens: Contains soy. May contain traces of nuts and milk protein.


Directions

Consume 1 – 2 Chocolate balls daily, or as advised by your dietitian or other health professional.
Calcium needs vary over the lifespan and should be adjusted accordingly, for your safety.

Safety Information

  • Do not exceed the recommended dose, as this may have a laxative effect.
  • Pregnant or nursing mothers, children under the age of 18 and individuals with known medical conditions should consult a physician before using this or any dietary supplement.

  • Keep out of reach children and pets.
