Some of our favorite childhood treats were stealthily nutritious, from whole wheat blueberry pancakes shaped-to-order to chewy vitamins that were (as far as we were concerned) an excuse to start our day with candy. These days, we’re happy eating regular-shaped breakfast—but we’re as delighted as ever by gummy vitamins (which, like us, are now all grown up). They’re packed with 10 key nutrients (including omega 3 fish oil!), independently tested for purity, and made without artificial sweeteners, flavors, or dyes—though they’re so delicious, we tend to think of them less as a dietary supplement and more as a guilt-free dessert.
How it Works
These gumdrop-shaped vitamins combine the major nutrients of a multivitamin, a vitamin D supplement, an omega-3 supplement, and a B12 supplement—streamlining a daily series of pills into a single (way more delicious) type of supplement. They’re formulated with organic ingredients and designed to make the nutrients they contain bioavailable—meaning they’re easy for your body to access and use. Better yet, these use organic cane sugar, a great carrier of nutrients (meaning you don’t need to take these with food) as opposed to other gummies which use less-than-ideal sweeteners (ahem - corn syrup, we’re looking at you).
How to Use
Snack on six gummies per day as a nutrition-packed treat. Try three with lunch and three after dinner to space out the supplements for maximum absorption (and have two sweet treats to look forward to). Or you can scarf them down all at once, like we do (taste one and you’ll understand why).
