We are shipping to the UK in cooperation with UPS. All orders over 135 euros to the UK will be imposed with customs fees by the HRMC upon arrival. We are therefore recommending that customers from the UK place orders under 135 euros for the time being, i.e. monthly or three-month subscriptions.

Our team of experts includes doctors, dietitians, and members of the pharmaceutical industry who are passionate about the work they do.

Above all, our work is focused on increasing the availability of customized vitamin and mineral supplements by developing innovative, high-quality products; producing educational materials; conducting informational visits with health care professionals; and arranging networking meetings and training seminars. We constantly strive to develop our products and services through research, continuous dialogue with healthcare experts, and by listening to our customers’ needs to create and expand opportunities to keep the good life going after bariatric surgery.

Our History

Health is the most important thing we have. When we’re ill, we want nothing more than to be restored again, especially if we’ve been fighting to get better for a long time. For those that have been struggling with obesity and its related conditions, bariatric surgery can be the start of a journey to regain their health and wellbeing, and the creators of Baricol® wanted to be a part of the journey. But what to do?

The reality was that most patients were still getting their vitamins and minerals prescribed for them in forms that were neither adapted for their new anatomy nor easy to take. Additionally, our founders saw how post-op care overlooked many patient needs, and they wanted to change this. That’s when Surgeon Göran Lundegårdh and a group of entrepreneurs had the idea to create a product tailor-made for bariatric surgery patients.

In 2013, the first version of Baricol Complete was created in Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg, Sweden, which became the seed for the company Baricol Bariatrics AB, founded in January 2015. Today, Baricol Complete is taken by thousands of satisfied users, most of whom live in the Nordic countries, the UK, and the Middle East.

In addition to Baricol Complete, our efforts to improve post-op care have resulted in the creation of BariBuddy, an app designed specifically for those who have had WLS; the Multidisciplinary Forum for Obesity Surgery (MDFO), the largest educational event in the Nordic region for dietitians and nurses working in obesity surgery; and innovative products like Baricol Start, a vitamin supplement designed to make taking supplements easy on patients' new digestive system in the first weeks after surgery. In the same spirit that started it all, we continue to find innovative ways to improve aftercare for bariatric surgery patients. We hope you’ll come along with us!

Collaboration with the Healthcare System

We regularly meet with bariatric surgeons, dietitians, and nurses to keep us updated on what is happening on the ground level in clinics and hospitals. To make sure of this, we organize the Multidisciplinary Forum for Obesity Surgery (MDFO) for everyone who works in bariatric surgery in the Nordic countries. We help train them, and they help train us!
