Universal Body Labs has joined the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Corporate Council. The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. (ASMBS) is the largest national society for bariatric procedures and the vision is to improve public health and well-being by lessening the burden of the disease of obesity and related diseases throughout the world.
The U.S. adult obesity rate stands at 42.4 percent, the first time the national rate has passed the 40 percent mark, and further evidence of the country’s obesity crisis. The national adult obesity rate has increased by 26 percent since 2008. For many people, bariatric procedures have become a healthy and viable option for people who are overweight.
Located in Iowa and founded in 2006, Universal Body Labs shares the same vision and has worked tirelessly to provide support products for those who have had any type of bariatric procedure. Whether a patient has had a Gastric Bypass, Lapband, Sleeve gastrectomy, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass or any other type of bariatric procedure, your body can not absorb food they way it had previously. Since you are also eating substantially less food, it can be very difficult to get all of the nutrients your body needs.
Steven Rogers of Universal Body Labs states “we are very excited to team up with the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Corporate Council since we share the same goals of providing healthy solutions for all who have had any type of bariatric procedure.”
Gastric Bypass surgeries have become more popular with each passing year. This type of surgery allows people who have tried and failed to lose weight through diet and exercise to reduce the amount of food that they consume. The surgery allows the stomach to be pushed up, resulting in the emptying of the stomach of some foods and the absorption of others. The benefits of this are a reduction in calories consumed, a faster emptying of the stomach of food particles is also achieved.
All products from Universal Body Labs are proudly made in the United States in an FDA Registered Facility. They are also GMP Certified and follow all NSF Manufacturing Guidelines.
