Knoxville Bariatric Surgeon and Bari Life Bariatric Supplements Introduces Multi-Probiotics

Dr. Stephen G. Boyce, Developer of Bari Life Bariatric Supplements, Adds Multi-Probiotics to His Line of Bariatric Supplements

KNOXVILLE, TN -- (Marketwired) -- 01/15/14 -- Dr. Stephen G. Boyce, a board-certified Knoxville bariatric surgeon and developer of Bari Life Bariatric Supplements, says he is excited to add multi-probiotics to his line of bariatric vitamin products. According to a recent Stanford University School of Medicine study, supplementing weight loss surgery patients with probiotics can be beneficial for maximizing weight loss benefits. Dr. Boyce says after having a major surgical procedure such as weight loss surgery, the body can become depleted of its natural supply of probiotics. He says multi-probiotic supplements can be effective at restoring the body's natural levels of probiotics, helping the body to be healthier and function more normally following bariatric surgery.

"Current research tells us that prescribing probiotics for our bariatric patients after surgery can provide many benefits. I believe that probiotics significantly improves the health of my patients after surgery," says Dr. Boyce.

He says probiotics are the good bacteria in the body that keep the bad, illness-causing bacteria under control. Probiotics are usually found in many types of food, including yogurt and some soy products. Dr. Boyce says supplements generally contain a much more concentrated supply of probiotics than those found in food, providing a few million colony forming units (CFU's). He says in addition to fighting off bad bacteria, probiotics can be useful for bariatric patients by assisting in the prevention of diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome, lowering bad cholesterol and raising good cholesterol levels, and supporting normal digestion.

Dr. Boyce notes, for patients who have had surgery for obesity to receive optimal health benefits, it is important to use probiotic supplements that contain multiple species of lactobacillus, such as L. acidophilus and bifidobacteria, as strains of these probiotics have been shown to improve digestion and have an extensive safety record for use in the generally healthy population.

"After researching probiotics, I found that many over-the-counter options for my patients were limited and expensive," says Dr. Boyce. "Through Bari Life, we created a shelf-stable multi-probiotic blend manufactured in the U.S. by a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Therapeutic Goods Association (TGA) certified nutraceutical manufacturing company. We can offer this complete formula to our bariatric patients at a much more affordable price than some of the over-the-counter products available. Bari Life Multi-Probiotics contain eight different bacteria per capsule containing 15 billion CFU's, and only one capsule is needed daily to restore the normal balance of bacteria in the digestive system."

Bari Life Bariatric Supplements also offers the only bariatric multivitamin formula that meets or exceeds the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery's (ASMBS) updated 2013 vitamin and mineral supplement guidelines, all in one bottle. Dr. Boyce notes: "These ASMBS guidelines are really important. These guidelines were established by combining the most recent findings of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE), The Obesity Society (TOS), and the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery." He says Bari Life Bariatric Supplements aims to provide high quality, complete, and affordable products designed specifically for the weight loss surgery patient.

Dr. Boyce recommends people looking to maximize benefits after weight loss surgery add a multi-probiotic supplement to their daily regimen. He notes the importance of using only those supplements that meet or exceed ASMBS guidelines.
