What is Forvia?
FORVIA is a multivitamin/mineral product that provides nutritional support for patients who have a reduced ability to absorb vitamins and minerals from diet because of gastrointestinal conditions such as:
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
- Crohn’s disease
- Ulcerative colitis
- Celiac disease
- Other malabsorption conditions including weight loss and other gastrointestinal surgeries.
FORVIA tablets and chewables were developed on the basis of growing medical knowledge about the effects of disease on the body’s ability to absorb and use nutrients. The vitamins and minerals we selected for this nutritional supplement were based on current clinical findings about the common nutritional deficiencies and daily vitamin and mineral needs for patients who have malabsorption. The innovators at Forvia also researched ingredients found in other vitamin and nutrient supplements on the market, which helped us determine what ingredients to not include in our formula. Some of these ingredients actually prevent the important nutrients from being absorbed into the body, and can aggravate symptoms of other medical conditions. Our goal was to make ours one of the best health supplements you can buy.
FORVIA contains the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K in water-miscible form to enable optimal absorption and efficiency. People with malabsorption conditions from disease or weight loss surgery have an increased risk for low levels of these vitamins. Vitamin D, which is important for maintaining bone mass, is supplemented at two times the daily value because it is not optimally absorbed by people with IBD or who have undergone gastric bypass surgery.FORVIA contains folic acid, which has been found in a number of studies to be associated with a reduced risk for the development of colorectal cancer or dysplasia in individuals with ulcerative colitis.
FORVIA contains vitamin C and iron in the ratio and amounts shown to increase iron absorption when given together. Iron is provided as ferrous fumarate, which is highly soluble in the gastrointestinal tract, is well-tolerated orally, and was less toxic than ferrous sulfate or ferrous gluconate in laboratory studies.
FORVIA contains 1000 mcg of vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin). B12 in the diet may be poorly absorbed in patients with IBD, particularly in extensive Crohn’s disease, or malabsorption from other diseases or from surgery. However, a large oral dose as in FORVIA allows sufficient B12 to be absorbed and eliminate the need for injections.
FORVIA contains zinc, important for wound healing and immune function, at 150% of the Daily Value because zinc may be lost through increased excretion in individuals with IBD.
FORVIA contains calcium diphosphate, a “non-gassy”/non-carbonate form of calcium for improved bone health.FORVIA does not contain magnesium as an active ingredient because magnesium can promote diarrhea.
FORVIA is lactose-free and gluten-free (important for people allergic to gluten due to celiac disease), and contains no dyes, artificial sweeteners, or flavorings.
FORVIA chewables are adult chewable vitamins that provide an alternative for those who can’t easily swallow tablets. The natural orange-flavored chewables have the same multivitamin and mineral content as the tablets, and are a convenient choice for people who may have difficulty swallowing tablets or who have an ostomy or other surgeries. Our chewable calcium supplements may be a good choice for people with gastric bypass procedures who need high-potency supplementation. See the Complete Product and Use Information for a full description of active ingredients.
FORVIA is a non-prescription product. However, taking FORVIA daily is one component of a comprehensive medical and nutritional program. Patients are urged to consult their physician about their individual treatment program and discuss the role of FORVIA in meeting their individual nutritional needs.
FORVIA tablets and chewables are manufactured in modern U.S. facilities using the highest quality ingredients and are inspected and laboratory-tested to assure compliance with specifications before leaving the factory. Our confidence in the quality of our product is reflected in our money-back guarantee.
What Forvia Can Help With
As we mentioned above, Forvia can help with several kinds of inflammatory bowel diseases and gastrointestinal disorders that are known to cause discomfort as well as major health issues. Because Forvia is designed to be highly absorbable, our IBD supplement can help those who have a hard time absorbing all of the essential nutrients their bodies need to heal get proper supplementation.

An inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease can cause numerous problems in a person’s body. Crohn’s is considered an autoimmune disease, meaning that you don’t contract this disease from contact, ingestion, or by breathing it in, but rather from your own immune system mistakenly “attacking” your own body. Crohn’s disease can cause mild to severe inflammation of your digestive tract, either in one specific area or causing problems in many different areas. This IBD can lead to mild to severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, fatigue, and other health issues.
Because Crohn’s disease affects the immune system, you may not be able to absorb essential nutrients your body needs to function or heal. Forvia can help you get the nutrients your body needs to operate properly. Learn more about our Crohn’s disease supplements and see what Forvia can do for you!
UC is very similar to Crohn’s disease. Both are considered inflammatory bowel diseases as well as autoimmune diseases. Both UC and Crohn’s affect the immune system, however ulcerative colitis is usually only present in the innermost lining of your large intestine. Similar to Crohn’s, UC can cause mild to severe inflammation in your digestive tract, including the formation of ulcers along the surface or just under the lining of your large intestine. This IBD can also cause symptoms similar to Crohn’s disease, which makes seeing your doctor if you experience any of them extremely important.
UC can also make it hard or even impossible for your body to absorb all of the essential nutrients your body needs. Because Forvia is one of the most easily absorbable IBD supplements on the market, you could help your body get all of the nutrients it needs to operate normally.

While it’s still considered an autoimmune disease, celiac disease is different from both Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. All three affect the immune system, but celiac disease is brought on by a sensitivity to gluten, which is a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. While all inflammatory bowel diseases affect people differently, celiac disease may be present in someone their entire lives and only pop up at a single moment. It’s also one of the only IBDs that’s caused by sensitivity to certain foods. Symptoms are similar to UC and Crohn’s disease, but can usually be avoided or mitigated by abstaining from foods that contain gluten.
Even if you stay away from foods with gluten, it can be difficult for your body to absorb vital nutrients that your body depends on. Forvia can help provide the nutrients your body needs to heal, helping to improve your overall quality of life. Learn more about our celiac disease supplements and what they can do for you.
Bariatric surgery can help people achieve their preferred overall weight. While most weight loss surgeries are designed to help people achieve their weight goals, they can also cause major health issues that don’t always make the surgery worth the end results. Stomach and gastrointestinal issues, including chronic mild to severe nausea, bleeding, and an inability to digest vital nutrients can all occur after weight loss surgeries. These symptoms can differ depending on your specific surgery as well as the severity to which you’ve changed your body.
If you’re having problems digesting and absorbing essential nutrients after your bariatric surgery, then Forvia may just be the perfect supplement for you. Learn more about our bariatric supplements and see if Forvia is right for you!
