SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Nov. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ReShape Lifesciences Inc. (NASDAQ:RSLS), the premier physician-led weight loss and metabolic health-solutions company, today announced the launch of an advanced line of supplements for bariatric surgery and medical weight loss patients, ReShape Optimize™ by ProCare Health®. Products from the new supplement line will be available for purchase in the ReShape Marketplace™, an extension of reshapecare™, the company’s reimbursed virtual health service prescribed by physicians for weight loss.
“We are excited about partnering with ProCare Health, a leader in bariatric multivitamins and supplements, and look forward to working together in addressing patient demand for quality, targeted supplementation that addresses individual needs and nutritional deficiencies,” commented Bart Bandy, President and Chief Executive Officer at ReShape Lifesciences™. “We are proud to add this product line to our ReShape Marketplace and strengthen our focused product and service offering for patients progressing along their health and wellness journeys.”

The ReShape Optimize line will be providing consumers with supplements in the areas of a multivitamin, multivitamin with iron, multivitamin with a probiotic, calcium, therapeutics and protein.
