The Compass capsules, Compass chewable tablets, and Compass tablets (WLS/ bariatric supplements) of Elan have been specially developed for people who have undergone a gastric bypass operation. In the development of these products and determining the exact composition Elan used the most recent scientific insights. With a gastric bypass the total size of your stomach is reduced and a part of the intestines is diverted or bypassed. This will allow you to eat less and your body can absorb less nutrients.
Scientific research has shown that your body will not get enough nutrients after your gastric bypass in order to keep you fit and healthy without specialized WLS or bariatric supplements. It is important to take a specialized WLS or bariatric supplement every day in order to prevent vitamin and/or mineral deficiencies and potentially very serious nutritional complications (like for example osteoporosis, neurological complications, anemia and cardiovascular diseases). The Compass capsules, Compass chewable tablets, and Compass tablets of Elan ensure that you will get a sufficient amount of vitamins and minerals every day to supplement your diet after your gastric bypass.
In addition, after your gastric bypass, vitamin D and calcium are important for maintaining healthy bones. Furthermore, sufficient proteins are of great importance to support your body during the post-operative weight loss process. Elan has therefore developed the calcium products and the Whey Protein shakes especially for people who have undergone bariatric and/or metabolic surgery.
Your gastric bypass is an important step towards a healthier life for you, Elan is ready to support you in this lean and healthy lifestyle!
