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 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.

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.
