We carefully formulate our IBD supplements to help offer you the vitamins and minerals your body may not be able to absorb.

As one of the best multivitamins for IBD, Forvia is specially crafted to provide you with essential vitamins and minerals that your body might not be able to absorb properly due to your inflammatory bowel disease. Because IBD can also cause a serious health condition known as malabsorption, or the inability to absorb vital nutrients, we made our Forvia multivitamin in both chewable and tablet forms to make sure that everyone can benefit from our IBD vitamins. Keep reading to learn more about the ingredients you can find in our Forvia multivitamin, all of which are designed to help your body fight malabsorption by supplying your body with the essential nutrients it needs.
Vitamins A, D, E, and K
These are some of the most valuable vitamins to the body, and if you have IBD and/or malabsorption, your body could be missing out on these vital nutrients. Vitamin A helps with normal vision and immune system functionality. It also helps vital organs like the heart, lungs, and kidneys work properly as well.
Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium, which helps build strong bones, teeth, and nails. Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant and is used by the body to help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Finally, vitamin K helps the body with blood clotting, bone metabolism, and regulating healthy blood calcium levels.
In Forvia, these fat-soluble vitamins are in water-miscible form in order to enable optimal absorption and efficiency. Where your body may not be able to properly digest the foods that carry these vitamins normally, Forvia offers a highly absorbable multivitamin that can help your body get the essential vitamins it needs.
Iron is integral to the body for the proper function of hemoglobin, which is a protein in blood that’s used to transport oxygen throughout the body. Iron is one of the most important micro minerals for the body, and an iron deficiency can lead to major health issues, such as anemia. Where most iron supplements may use a ferrous sulfate or ferrous gluconate form of iron, Forvia utilizes a ferrous fumarate form of iron. This form of iron is highly soluble in the GI tract and is also more pleasant to take than other forms of iron.
Calcium is an important mineral for animals and humans as it helps with natural bone, teeth, and nail growth. The problem with most calcium carbonate supplements is that they use a form of calcium known to produce carbon dioxide when it’s dissolved in the stomach. Those who suffer from some kind of IBD can experience gastrointestinal discomfort and diarrhea after taking supplements that contain calcium carbonate. Forvia vitamins use dicalcium phosphate, which is a non-carbonate form of calcium that doesn’t produce carbon dioxide when it’s digested.
When you suffer from an IBD, your immune system is working overtime to try and stop your specific disease while also trying to fend off other illnesses, bacteria, and viruses. This can mean that you get even more sick when you’re dealing with an inflammatory bowel disease, especially if your body isn’t getting enough zinc. As an essential micro mineral, zinc is used by the body to help with wound healing and overall immune functionality. And because zinc is one of the nutrients that can be lost due to symptoms of IBD, we’ve provided 150% of the daily value of zinc.
Other features of Forvia:
- Contains no dyes, artificial sweeteners, or flavorings
- Comes in adult chewable and tablet form
- Non-prescription health product
- Natural orange flavor

Forbones Xtra D Ingredients
Here at Inovera Bioscience, we set out to create one of the best calcium supplements around. Forbones Xtra D was designed to help those living with an inflammatory bowel disease or other health issues get the calcium they need to grow and thrive. This natural calcium supplement is highly absorbable and provides all of the essential nutrients necessary to help calcium work even more efficiently in the body. Where other calcium supplements can cause discomfort, especially in those with IBDs, Forbones is specially formulated to be highly absorbable and easy on the gastrointestinal tract, allowing for the most beneficial calcium supplement on the market. Keep reading to learn more about the ingredients you can find in our Forbones vitamins.
Similar to our Forvia multivitamin, Forbones Xtra D is made with a non-carbonate form of calcium, meaning that our Forbones vitamins don’t contain magnesium, which has been known to exacerbate certain symptoms of IBDs and can also cause gas and gastrointestinal discomfort. Using dicalcium phosphate, our calcium supplement provides the body with calcium and phosphorus, the two major minerals found in bones, while also allowing Forbones to be gas-free. Forbones is also easily absorbable and highly efficient, especially for those who might have an inflammatory bowel disease.
Vitamin D is very important for the body, and while it can be found in foods like fish, cheese, and eggs, it can be harder for some people to absorb. This important vitamin is essential in helping the body absorb calcium, and if you’re suffering from an IBD like ulcerative colitis or celiac disease, then your body might not be able to digest, absorb, and utilize vitamin D like it normally would. We included water-soluble vitamin D in Forbones Xtra D in order to help our calcium supplement be even more absorbable. This helps make our Forbones multivitamin perfect for post gastric bypass patients and those suffering from gastrointestinal conditions.
Elemental Calcium and Phosphorus
There’s nothing quite like the original, and with Forbones Xtra D you’ll get just that. With 400 mg and 300 mg of calcium and phosphorus respectively, you’ll get all of the essential nutrients you need with just two to three tablets per day. With added vitamin D and dicalcium phosphate, this calcium supplement is easily absorbed and used by the body, helping those with gastrointestinal disorders or those who may be using corticosteroids, such as prednisone.
Other features of Forbones Xtra D:
- No artificial sweeteners, preservatives, or flavorings
- Non-prescription health product
- Doesn’t interfere with fat digestion
- Non-gassy calcium supplement
If you need the best calcium supplement around that won’t slow you down or cause you gastrointestinal discomfort, then Forbones Xtra D is designed to help you.

What Forvia & Forbones Can Help With
There are many different kinds of inflammatory bowel diseases, and unfortunately many are incurable or can resurface at any time in someone’s life. Forvia and Forbones Xtra D are designed to help provide your body with essential vitamins and minerals to help you get all of the important nutrients you need to heal, grow, and thrive. Keep reading to learn more about some of the IBDs or health issues our multivitamins can help with.
A chronic inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease is also characterized as an autoimmune disease, meaning that it’s caused by a problem with someone’s immune system rather than by an infection. Crohn’s causes redness, swelling, and pain in the digestive and/or gastrointestinal tract. This disease can span from the anus all the way up to the esophagus, making it one of the most debilitating IBDs. It can also cause numerous other health issues, like diarrhea, severe stomach pain, malabsorption, and more. Because Crohn’s affects the immune system and intestines, it can be hard for the body to digest and absorb certain nutrients.
Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that’s somewhat similar to Crohn’s disease. UC is an autoimmune system that’s a little baffling, as health professionals are still unsure of how ulcerative colitis starts exactly. Similar to Crohn’s, UC causes inflammation, swelling, and even bleeding in the gastrointestinal system. However, unlike Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis usually only affects the large intestine (sometimes referred to as the colon). In most cases, only part of the colon is affected, but the entire organ can also be affected as well. Health issues caused by UC are very similar to Crohn’s, including diarrhea, stomach pain, an increased urge to have a bowel movement, and other problems. UC can make it difficult for your body to absorb the nutrients it needs to operate, which can cause more health issues.
While celiac disease is an inflammatory bowel disease like Crohn’s and UC, it is different from the first two diseases on this page. Also considered an autoimmune disease, celiac disease occurs in certain people who are genetically predisposed with a sensitivity to gluten, which is the protein found in many types of grains. Celiac disease can become active at just about any point in someone’s life, sometimes popping up after surgery, pregnancy, infection, or severe periods of stress. This autoimmune disease affects the small intestine, causing health problems like bloating, diarrhea, stomach pain, and other symptoms. Celiac disease can prevent the absorption of certain nutrients, causing more health issues to occur.
Bariatric surgery, more commonly known as metabolic or weight-loss surgery, can help many people achieve their overall health and weight goals. These procedures are used to restrict the amount of food the stomach can hold at any given time. The problem with many bariatric surgeries though is that they can cause gastrointestinal issues. One of the biggest issues these weight-loss surgeries can cause is malabsorption or other long-term vitamin and mineral deficiencies. In some cases, the surgery requires patients to adhere to strict diets and supplementation schedules.
Whether you’re suffering from an autoimmune disease, or you’re looking for a way to get all of the vital nutrients your body needs after your bariatric surgery, the supplements here at Inovera Bioscience are designed to help you. Learn more about our supplements and be sure to talk to your doctor to see if Forvia and Forbones XtraD are right for you.
