What are Vitamin Gummies? Here’s What You Need to Know

Vitamin gummies are a common favorite among children. Because of their sweet taste, these have become a popular alternative to hard-to-swallow pills or chewable tablets. With the convenience and fun factor that these gummy vitamins offer, even adults are already taking them.

But are vitamin gummies good for you? Given the variety of gummy vitamins available in the market, what are the best vitamin gummies to take? Do vitamin gummies actually work? And why are vitamin gummies so good?

To start with, let’s get to know more about the background of these vitamin gummies.

What are Gummy Vitamins?

Traditionally marketed for children, vitamin gummies offer a flavorful solution to alleviate the pill burden. These are often made from carefully selected ingredients (gelatin, vitamins, and minerals) that can help boost energy, aid sleep, and provide a necessary supplement to those following strict diets, like pregnant women, older adults, vegans, and many others.

Are Vitamin Gummies Good for You?

Vitamin insufficiency remains one of the many threats that cause long-term adverse effects on the health of many infants, pregnant women, the elderly, and the rest of the population.1 While a healthy and balanced diet is the ultimate key to fulfill the needs of the body, there are many certain individuals that find it really difficult to eat a variety of food because they have trouble absorbing nutrients or they have dietary restrictions. Hence, the need for a multivitamin.

Custom gummies can contain varying amounts of vitamins and minerals. Some vitamin gummies just have one specific nutrient, say Vitamin C. But many are now multivitamins containing Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Folate, and the like.  

How to Make Your Own Vitamin Gummies?

While evidence suggests that dietary supplements, like vitamin gummies, can have beneficial effects on people2, it is important to note that some vitamin gummy manufacturers leave out essential nutrients in the formulation of their products. That’s why it is important to always review the ingredients list and nutrition facts to see the number of vitamins added in your vitamin gummies – or if the supplement really does contain the labeled nutrients. Experts highly suggest choosing a brand that implements third-party testing to verify claims.

Planning to make your own vitamin gummies? To be certain with the ingredients and formulation, it is best to partner with a gummy private label that has FDA registered facilities, certifications (ISO certification, cruelty-free international, and HACCP certification), and is capable of custom-formulation – especially if there are certain ingredients (like CBD) that you want to be added.
