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.

Twinlab's comprehensive new Bariatric Support line addresses the specific nutritional needs and challenges faced by bariatric surgery patients. Twinlab's Bariatric line acts as a nutritional safety net to help fill in nutrient gaps potentially left by reduced food intake and decreased absorption to support optimal health of these individuals. Due to the unique digestive challenges faced by bariatric surgery patients, many dietary supplement forms such as capsules and large tablets can be difficult for these individuals to absorb. This is especially true in the early stages of the recovery process, when patients are required to follow a liquid-only diet. Instead, many bariatric nutritionists typically recommend delivery systems that may be more easily digested or absorbed, such as liquids and chews.
