Welcome to Paravita

Our team brings together people passionate about vitamins & supplements, nutritional science, and bariatric surgery. Founded in Toronto, Canada and available throughout North America, we are dedicated to helping bariatric patients get the nutrients they need. 

Learn more about what makes us unique. 

Paravita was started from the idea that there was a missing step post-surgery. Healthcare providers recommend that all bariatric patients take vitamin and mineral supplements every day, but getting the right nutrients is a difficult task. Scientific research shows that many bariatric patients will experience severe nutrient deficiencies such as iron, folate, vitamin B12, zinc, copper, and calcium deficiencies. 

We set out to ensure bariatric patients get the right nutrients; with a routine they can follow, ingredients they can digest, and doses they can absorb. After 2 years of research and a Health Canada-approved formula, we are setting the standards for bariatric nutrition. Our name, Paravita, comes from “para vida” which means “for life”. We are part of your journey, and we will help you make the most of every moment.

Is this multivitamin right for me?

Our multivitamin is designed to meet the vitamin and mineral needs of the majority of patients who have undergone gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, and gastric band procedures. However, some patients may require additional supplementation. It's always a good idea to consult your health care provider to determine your individual needs.

Can Iron and Calcium be in the same Supplement?

Did you know? There are over 45 different forms of Iron! Most Iron will compete with Calcium for absorption, which typically results in less Iron being absorbed.

We use a form of Iron known as “chelated Iron” (Iron Bisglycinate) which is able to maintain absorption even when included with Calcium. Chelated Iron is also typically easier on the stomach and may help if you experience nausea and digestive issues with other Iron supplements!
