If you have a nutrient deficiency, live a busy lifestyle and want to introduce a multivitamin, are struggling to sleep or even have digestive issues, you may be looking to introduce a supplement in to your diet. In fact these are just some of the many reasons millions of people are turning to nutritional gummies.
You might not have come across gummies before, perhaps being more accustomed to traditional pills or capsules. But lots of people struggle with swallowing. Many others suffer from pill ‘fatigue’, and even more start taking some form of tablet, days later simply forgetting to take them.
Nowadays, taking vitamins can actually be enjoyable. With the advent of nutritional gummies, you can now enjoy a delicious treat every time you take your daily vitamins.
Coming in a variety of shapes, sizes, and flavours, Wicked Gummy Co’s range include delights such as passion fruit, lime, yoghurt, peach and many more.
Historically, gummies were made out of gelatine, corn starch, water, and sugar, alongside whatever colours and flavours are required to create their taste. Vegan gummies, such as those made at Wicked Gummy Co, are made using a different binding agent to gelatine to avoid the use of any animal-based products. Pectin is a jelly like substance which is produced from the skins of citrus fruits and apples.
What Are the Benefits of Taking Vitamin Gummies?
They’re Easier to Take
Let’s face it, swallowing a dry, powdery tablet when you wake up in the mornings is not the most enjoyable way to start your day.
Swapping over to vitamin gummies can make your experience a lot more enjoyable. You might even start to look forward to taking your vitamins when you know you can chew on a sweet, fruit flavoured gummy.
If you’re somebody who suffers from pill fatigue or pill phobia, choosing gummies is a fantastic solution. You can stay on top of your daily vitamins without any stress or worry!
You Can Cater Them to Your Needs
Since you can enjoy gummy vitamins in all different sizes, dosages, and flavours, you can cater them to your needs and preferences.
Perhaps your busy lifestyle requires ‘all in one’ Multivitamin, just to cover your bases. Or perhaps you have a need for a higher dosage single vitamin to battle a deficiency, such as Iron or Vitamin D.
So, if you’re deficient in one or two specific micronutrients, you can supplement with select nutrients without exceeding your daily limit of the other vitamins and minerals.
Some common vitamins supplements that people like to take include:
- Vitamin C to boost the immune system
- Vitamin D and calcium to enhance the strength of their bones
- Iron to reduce the risk of iron-deficiency anaemia
They Can Be Helpful if Your Diet is Restrictive
If you are on a restrictive diet, whether that is for health reasons or personal preferences, you are at an increased risk of nutrient deficiencies.
Here are some examples of times when people might need to supplement with extra vitamins and minerals.
- Those who are suffering from a digestive disorder that decreases your body’s ability to absorb certain nutrients will benefit from supplementing with vitamins. Pregnant women require more iron and folic acid than the average person.
- Taking an iron vitamin gummy during pregnancy can prevent iron deficiency anaemia in mothers-to-be.
- Vegetarian and vegan diets are usually deficient in vitamin B12 and iron.
In the above cases, taking a vitamin gummy each day can prevent serious nutrient deficiencies. You can maintain optimal health and allow your body to thrive as it should!
They May Be Absorbed More Efficiently Than Capsules
Often, gummy vitamins get absorbed more efficiently in the digestive tract than tablets or capsules because the body breaks them down as if they are food.
This means that the vitamins in your gummies have a higher bioavailability. In other words, more of the nutrients get absorbed into your bloodstream and can be used by your organs and tissues.
Studies have shown that vitamin D, for example, has a higher bioavailability when taken in gummy form compared to tablet form, meaning it is better absorbed in your digestive tract. Vitamin D is an essential micronutrient for your body and has a range of vital functions, including roles in bone turnover and maintenance, metabolism, and immune function.
Vitamin D can be synthesised in the epidermis of the skin when you are exposed to ultraviolet B light from the sun. However, you can increase the levels of vitamin D in your body through supplements. If you’re trying to bump up your vitamin D intake, taking vitamin gummies is going to be a better option than tablets or capsules.
What You Should Be Aware of When You Take Vitamin Gummies?
As with anything, there are a few things that you should be aware of before you start taking your vitamin gummies.
- They’re almost too tasty! Vitamin gummies are similar to sweets with their fruit flavours and sweet taste. Because gummy vitamins taste so good, you might find yourself wanting more than the recommended daily amount.
- Some brands put artificial colourings and flavours in their gummy vitamin products. Artificial colours and flavours have been linked to increased behavioural issues in children and some numbers have also been linked to an increased risk of certain diseases. But the gummies from Wicked Gummy Co are free from these nasties.
