Show Notes

I’m gonna sound like everyone’s mother here for just a minute: TAKE YOUR VITAMINS! Not just any vitamin! TAKE YOUR BARIATRIC-SPECIFIC VITAMINS. And listening to Heather Mackie, a Registered Dietician who has worked in the bariatric field for over 18 years will hopefully be the reason you become the reason you never miss another day of taking your bariatric specific vitamins. The information in today’s video is some of THE most RELIABLE information you will get when it comes to Bariatric Vitamins because it comes to you from one of the most respected professionals in the bariatric industry.  In last week’s episode, Laura Preston mentioned she was had three to four-hour tutoring sessions about vitamins from a woman who knows bariatric vitamins, literally from the inside out! Heather Mackie is the woman who taught Laura all about the science of vitamins when they both worked for the same bariatrtic vitamin company. Laura and Heather will share with you how together they began a movement of sorts within the bariatric vitamin community that has benefitted all bariatric patients. Heather now works for ProCare Vitamins and will be helping them as they continue to provide quality products AND patient education. By the way, you can get 10% off your orders from ProCare Vitamins using the discount code CONNIE STAPLETON.  Now let’s listen as Heather and Laura give you information you will absolutely want to share with every bariatric patient you know!
