Welcome to the review of Smartypants Women’s Formula Daily Gummy Vitamins. We will review the features and give you are opinion on the vitamins and Gummy Vitamins overall.
For about 100 years or so, candy companies have made gummy bears and other gummy treats — chewy, fruit-flavored bears, worms and fish that everyone loves to eat. But now the beloved gummy bears have grown up. Now as adults we can enjoy Gummy Vitamins.
Gummy vitamins and supplements originally were marketed to children, and were offered as a fun way to get kids to take their vitamins. We believe the first Gummy Vitamins for kids were produced Hero Nutrionals in 1997. In 2012, an Irish company named Perrigo began marketing gummy vitamins to adults.
There are a few reasons why Gummy Vitamins are so popular these day. If you are like me you loved growing up on Flintstone Vitamins and loved the fruity flavors. Another reason gummy vitamins are so popular these days is because many of us suffer from “pill fatigue.” Taking a gummy vitamin doesn’t seem like you are taking a pill at all. They are also good for people who have difficulty swallowing pills.
Call me weird but I kind of like the chalky taste of chewable vitamins but for those that don’t and who don’t want to take a vitamin in pill form then the flavorings in gummy vitamins can also hide the taste. Gummies are a pleasant way to take your daily vitamin especcially if you have a sweet tooth. Most Gummy Vitamins contain added sugars or artificial sweeteners and may not list nutrient content accurately on their labels unless they are from a well known national source.
Smartypants Women’s Gummy Vitamins are an Amazon best seller. The reason should become obvious when you see what the Gummy Vitamins have in them.
The vitamins contain Beta Carotene (Vitamin A for eye health), Vitamins B6, B12 (energy), C (antioxident and immune) D3 (immune health), E (antioxident), K and K2 (bone health) , CoQ10 (heart health) and Choline (liver) as well as Omega 3 (both BPA and DHA (from fish oil for heart disease). The Gummy Vitamins also have iodine for Thyroid Support and Biotin (Vitamin H) which is used for healthier hair skin and nails.
The Gummy Vitamins are made with Non-GMO ingredients and are egg, peanut, tree nut, shellfish, fish allergens, soy, gluten and wheat free.
Smartypants Gummy Vitamins contain one gram of sugar each —in comparison a 1,000 milligram dose of Nature Made Gummy Vitamin C contains 8 grams of sugar.
Smartypants Gummy Vitamins do not have a fishy taste or odor as some fish oil supplements have but do taste a little vitaminy. The texture is a little weird to some and some people have described it as grainy.
One issue with the sweet taste of gummy vitamins and supplements is that people might eat too many.
Over eating of gummy vitamins may put you at risk of getting too much of certain nutrients, especially if you also eat foods already fortified with vitamins and minerals, this would be the case with any vitamin however you are unlikely to overdose on Vitamin Pills. This could result in vitamin or mineral toxicity, which can harm your body. Consuming more than the recommended dosage of 6 Gummy Vitamins a day could add too much fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K since they can be stored in body fat.
Now for the really bad part, Gummy Vitamins cost most than vitamins in pill form. Luckily we have a Amazon Supplier that sells Smartypants Women’s Formula Daily Gummy Vitamins at an lower price than their competitors.
