Things to Consider Before Purchasing a Collagen Supplement

In recent years, there has been an increasing buzz about collagen supplements, but is it worth the hype? Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the body. However, the human body makes less collagen as we age. Sun exposure, smoking, excess alcohol, lack of exercise and inadequate sleep negatively impact collagen production.

Bariatric Multivitamin Options

When choosing a multivitamin after weight loss surgery, it's important to ensure the product meets the ASMBS supplement guidelines in order to prevent vitamin and mineral deficiencies throughout the lifetime. Over the counter supplements do not provide adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals after surgery which can lead to bone loss, muscle loss, neurological issues, and anemia after weight loss surgery.

Fresh Harvest

After bariatric surgery, the priority is proper nutrition to fuel your body and keep you healthy. Sometimes grocery shopping can be overwhelming and that is where Fresh Harvest comes in. This organization puts the Metro Atlanta community in touch with their local farmers to have sustainable, organic food items delivered to you.
