Going Gummy: Chewy Supplements Not Just for Kids Anymore
You may find particular vitamins or other supplements to be difficult to take. Whether turned off by a chalky taste or concerned over the size of a capsule, the way that supplements are delivered sometimes prevents people from taking what is needed to reap the heath advantages.
A recent alternative has arisen in the form of ‘gummy’ supplements. Originally introduced for children, a number of adult supplements are now available in gummy options. Gummy supplements contain the same key ingredients as their traditional counterparts, and offer the same benefits in a tasty, easily consumed form.
Gummy multivitamins come in general formulations as well as, ones developed specifically for men and women. Prenatal multivitamins rich in DHA and folic acid are also available as are versions designed to meet the needs of those who are over 50.
Multiple companies make gummy Omega-3 supplements that can be an alternative to large fish oil capsules to reduce inflammation and promote healthy cell function. Children and adults alike appreciate this easy-to-take option.
Individual vitamins and minerals such as B12, C, D and calcium are also available in gummy form, as are probiotics.
We should note that most gummy supplements do contain small amounts of natural sugars and thus may not be appropriate for diabetics or others with sensitivity to sugar. Gummy supplements also should be stored out of reach of small children, and dispensed by adults, as their appealing taste and form could lead to their being mistaken for a treat.
