"Our new products demonstrate the power of personalization. We are confident that our latest innovations will allow subscribers in all stages of life to achieve their wellness goals."
Bariatric vitamin program
Post surgery, bariatric patients must take specially-designed nutritional supplements to support their health needs through their lifespan. Developed from the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) guidelines, Persona's new bariatric program features a multivitamin in a vegan softgel formulated with the nutrient levels these patients need as well as calcium citrate taken three times per day – all are packaged in individual tear-off pouches that can be taken on the go.
To help reduce the number of supplements some subscribers receive, Persona now offers an omega-3 fish oil combined with curcumin from the BioCurc® brand. In addition, the company joins iron with vitamin C in one capsule to support iron absorption in the body.
