Hello everyone, this is Michelle Phelan, nutritionist at Blossom Bariatrics and today I’m going to talk about some of my very favorite protein snacks and supplements.

So what I have here folks is a product called Tummy Balance by Journey Bariatric. Now for those of you who know me, I am a big fan of Journey Bariatric products. They’ve done a lot of research and they’re good clean products. However, this is really wonderful for folks who need a little help digesting their food.

Oftentimes with the sleeve or a pouch procedure it’s tough to collect enough digestive enzymes and digestive juices, you know, like hydrochloric acid, to properly break down a lot of protein, you know, steak and chicken and things like that, even vegetables, high fiber foods like vegetables.

So this product you can take just like Tums, but you’re going to take it before you eat, about fifteen minutes before you eat.

They’re delicious. They’re chewable. They’re berry flavored and they are digestive enzymes.

So again, I’m a big believer in digestive enzymes, particularly for my bariatric patients. It’s going to help you break down the food that you’re going to eat. You should feel more comfortable and more satiated after you eat.
