Should vitamins and minerals be taken daily post gastric bypass surgery?

Tonya Bolden

As with my “meals,” I’d have to ingest supplements ever so slowly. No popping a tablet or capsule. I’d have to do chewables to meet the daiLy need of folic acid, calcium, B12, andso on. For some people, vitamins and minerals can be a sometimey thing - when they have a cold, are under a lot of stress, or are feeling run-down. For me, vitamins and minerals could not be a sometimey thing. They will have to be an every-single- day-of-my-life thing because I will never consume enough food to provide my body all the nutrients I need to function properly.
