    As bariatric patients know, proper bariatric nutrition is a vital part of losing weight and maintaining health. A healthy bariatric eating plan should include adequate intake of protein, vitamins, and minerals to achieve the desired weight loss and overall health goals.

    BariatrX Essentials is a great-tasting, low-calorie medical food in powdered beverage form uniquely designed to nutritionally support the health needs of pre- and post-operative bariatric patients. This high protein liquid meal option also provides targeted nutrients to support the management of the specific health concerns of post-bariatric patients, such as energy levels, hair and nail growth, immune health, and tissue repair.

    Scientifically Formulated:

    • May reduce the incidence of adverse consequences of bariatric procedures such as dumping syndrome
    • Formulated with a blend of superior soy and whey proteins to promote the growth of lean muscle mass while supporting the loss of unhealthy fat
    • Contains a targeted blend of macro- and micronutrients designed to meet the specific needs of the bariatric patient:
      • Supports hair and nail growth
      • Helps to reduce fatigue and weakness
      • Supports immune system function
      • Provides nutritional building blocks for tissue health and repair

    Bariatric Advantages:

    • Provides calcium, which along with regular exercise and a healthy diet, can play a significant role in reducing the rate of bone loss or bone thinning and in protecting bone strength
    • Features body-ready folates for cardiovascular health
    • Provides fiber for cardiovascular and gastrointestinal health
    • Contains heart-healthy soy protein:
      • Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 25 grams of soy protein a day may reduce the risk of heart disease
      • Soy protein has also been shown to have cholesterol-lowering effects

    Suggested Use

    BariatrX Essentials medical food may be mixed with chilled water, nonfat milk, electrolyte replacement beverages, reduced calorie beverages, or other liquids recommended by your healthcare practitioner. Fresh or frozen fruit, as well as ice or extract flavorings, may be added to customize the texture and taste. Prolonged blending may cause foaming. Volume of fluid may be adjusted to change consistency.

    1 month pre-op: Replace 1 meal with 3 level scoops into 12 oz. of liquid once daily.
    0-3 months post-op: Mix 1 level scoop into 4 oz. of liquid 6 times per day.
    3-6 months post-op: Mix 3 level scoops into 12 oz. of liquid 2 times per day.
    6 months post-op: Mix 3 level scoops into 12 oz. of liquid 1 time per day.

    Or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Additional fluids throughout the day promote adequate hydration. Your healthcare practitioner may recommend additional nutritional products—including targeted vitamins, fiber, and protein—tailored to the needs and sensitive stomachs of bariatric patients. Regular exercise is an essential component of a healthy body composition program as well.

    What a great product not only in taste but in all the essential vitamins as well. I blend it in non-fat milk w/3 frozen strawberrys and 1/4 C of Yogurt. Lots of Protein!

      Good stuff! We've been using these 'milkshakes' as meal replacement for weight loss. They are very filling, easy to mix, and taste pretty good. I've lost about 10 pounds in two months without depriving myself or starving.

      We just received it so have only been using the product for a few days. We have great expectations. The taste is good so it's easy to drink.
