Vitamin Time!

I am running low on my vitamins.
I have been taking random brands of vitamins since surgery from which ever store I happen to be in.
I ALWAYS get the chewies for both a multivitamin and calcium.
I am just tired of the lack of options. I went to my trusted source...Lap Band Gal. I raided her blog to find out what she uses.
Came up with 3 different brands she had talked about.

I ended up buying:

Multivitamin from Unjury. I liked how it was for the band, and all the reviews say how great it tastes. The benefit for me was it only requires you to take 1 tab a day. Many of the chewy vitamins I have been taking I have to take 2 to 4 a day! That is craziness! I'm excited to get these in the mail!

So that was the easy choice. 

I had a harder time choosing the calcium that I wanted to buy. I ended up choosing the Bariatric Advantage 500mg Chewables. I liked that you can chew them or have them dissolve in your mouth. I liked that it came in chocolate. Also liked that I only have to take 2. Some of the others you needed to take like 4 a day. That is just too many times to remember. 

So anyone tried these? Thoughts? Comments? Likes or Dislikes? Tell me what you use!


  1. The opurity do taste good, but made me nauseous for some weird reason. I have ordered some gummies. I may get sick of them if I have to take so many, too. I will try my opurity again right after a meal instead of just my morning joe.

  2. Those are exactly my vitamin choices. Good detective work on my blog :)

  3. Thanks for posting this Hollie! I have to get some new calcium and am going to check out Baritric Advantage! My doctor told me just to take prenatals for my multivitamin. But I think I will check out Unjury! I love their protien powder.

  4. I had the same problem with Opurity making me feel sick - I used to be sensitive to the vitamins I had to swallow when I was pregnant, too (or any time I tried to take multi-vitamins). My surgeon gave me samples of the liquid vitamins, which were fine for me, but I tried Flinstones, and while I don't love them, they don't make me sick, so I'm sticking with that for now! I read somewhere it is the minerals in the vitamins some people are just more sensitive to that other people?
