Because of the holding capacity of only one to two ounces of food or liquid, the pouch sets the limit of the consumption of the food you can eat and lends help to feel full faster. Simultaneously, the larger region of the abdomen foments the needed enzymes, which help in digesting the food. As a result of this procedure, the bypass does obstruct some amount of available nutrients in your stomach from being absorbed. So, you need to start taking certain nutritional supplements such as vitamins and minerals to remedy this problem.
