What You Should Know
Alvitum is a supplement designed specifically for people preparing for or recovering from weight loss surgery. It is a powdered formula meant to be mixed with water. It comes in three phases: two for pre-surgery and one for post surgery consumption. Marketing a multivitamin supplement towards weight loss surgery patients is a smart move for BMD nutrition because vitamin and mineral deficiencies are often a result from cutting calories. Phase one of Alvitum contains no caffeine whereas the second and third phases contain the amount of caffeine that’s in one cup of coffee.

BMD claims that Alvitum keeps weight loss surgery patients hydrated as well as healthy. However, the drink is meant to be taken with one glass. They also claim that the formula allows patients to eat “small amounts of food” and that the caffeine in this formula can lead to appetite suppression. Thus, the benefits that come from taking this product can be found in a simple once a day multivitamin and a cup of coffee.
