Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a group of chronic gastrointestinal disorders that can significantly impact the quality of life of those affected. Managing IBD requires a comprehensive approach, including proper nutrition and targeted supplementation. At Inovera Bioscience, we have developed FORVIA, a scientifically-formulated multivitamin, and mineral supplement specifically designed to address the unique nutritional needs of IBD patients and those with other malabsorption conditions. Read on to learn more!
Optimized Absorption Of Fat-Soluble Vitamins
FORVIA contains the essential fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K in a water-miscible form to enable optimal absorption and efficiency. This is particularly important for individuals with IBD, as their ability to absorb these nutrients may be compromised due to their condition. Vitamin D is provided twice the daily value, as people with IBD are not able to optimally absorb it or have undergone gastric bypass surgery.
Iron And Vitamin C For Enhanced Iron Absorption
FORVIA contains iron as ferrous fumarate and vitamin C in the ratio and amounts shown to increase iron absorption when given together. Iron is essential for maintaining healthy red blood cells, while vitamin C helps with iron absorption. This combination is particularly important for individuals with IBD, as they may have an increased risk of iron deficiency due to their condition.
High-Potency Vitamin B12 Supplementation
FORVIA contains 1000 mcg of vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin), essential for nerve function and the production of red blood cells. Vitamin B12 in the diet may be poorly absorbed in patients with IBD or malabsorption from other diseases or surgery. The high-potency dose in FORVIA allows sufficient B12 absorption, potentially eliminating the need for injections.
Tailored Formulation For IBD Patients
FORVIA’s formulation is designed to cater specifically to the needs of IBD patients. It contains zinc at 150% of the Daily Value for wound healing and immune function and a non-gassy form of calcium for improved bone health. The supplement is lactose-free, gluten-free, and free of dyes, artificial sweeteners, and flavorings, making it a suitable option for individuals with dietary restrictions and sensitivities.
FORVIA is a comprehensive and targeted solution to address the unique nutritional needs of individuals with IBD and other malabsorption conditions.
