Protein is an important nutrient required by every cell in the body. In fact, next to water, protein is the most plentiful substance in our bodies. Muscles, hair, skin, eyes, organs, enzymes, many hormones and blood cells are all made from protein. The body also utilizes protein to build and repair tissues.* Due to the nature of bariatric surgery procedures, these patients may have trouble meeting their daily requirements for protein. Twinlab Bariatric Support Basic Essentials delivers 15 grams of high-quality, easily-digested protein in a delicious, nutrient-dense shake mix with only 90 calories and 1 gram of fat per serving.*  Note: Unless otherwise noted, this product has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
