Around 40% of UK adults consume a daily multivitamin to protect against nutritional deficiencies, to improve immunity and to generally feel better. However, with the increase in food supplement capsules, it can often feel like an overload of capsule products to take in the morning.
Adult multivitamin gummies are a great alternative way to consume daily nutrients without needing water to wash down or help the process.
Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that also acts as a powerful antioxidant within the body and is often found within multivitamin gummies. It plays a critical role in maintaining vision, neurological function, healthy skin and like all antioxidants, is involved in reducing inflammation throughout the body fighting free radical damage.
Vitamin C supplements have been found to lower blood pressure in healthy adults. It also improves the absorption of iron that is poorly absorbed, such as iron from meat free sources, reducing the risk of an iron deficiency. Vitamin C may boost immunity by helping the white blood cells function effectively, strengthening the skin’s defence system and helping wounds heal faster.
Vitamin D3 is a fat soluble vitamin that helps the body to absorb calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D is naturally created when the skin is exposed to sunlight, so it is essential to supplement in the darker winter months.
Vitamin E is key for strong immunity and healthy skin and eyes. Studies have shown that certain isomers of vitamine serve as a protective antioxidant that helps fight cholesterol oxidation. It can also benefit the skin by strengthening the capillary walls and improving moisture and elasticity, acting as a natural anti-ageing nutrient.
Vitamin B complex

Why Choose a Multivitamin Gummy?
In today’s world of having the ability to research and request information online, more and more consumers are aware of the nutrients their body needs. This has been seen by the large growth in the food supplement industry over the past 5 years. But with more consumers purchasing different capsules and powders to take daily, it becomes more of a chore to remember and consume all products. Gummies have the added benefit of being more of a treat than a supplement. Often in bright colours and cute shapes, the bold flavours chosen are often favoured over capsule and tablet products, which in turn makes them easier to remember daily.
