These days, there are supplements for almost everything. Want better hair, nails, skin and/or digestion? Strolling down the aisle of a drug store, or conducting a quick web search, can easily find you a capsule or powder that addresses a variety of health concerns.
However, if swallowing pills isn’t your thing, or you don’t have time to make a smoothie (and furthermore, can’t even spare a minute to mix the powder with water… hey, we get it!) — gummy vitamins provide a solution for speedy consumption preferences, especially if you’re on-the-go and need to save time.
Whether your mornings (or evenings) are incredibly busy, or you’re just looking for a sweet treat that aids your well-being, chew on these gummies for a variety of benefits.
Because of all the free radicals and environmental aggressors, our skin can always use an extra boost. Adding some ingestible skincare supplements to your skincare routine can be just as effective as adding a new serum to your routine.
Try the Retinol Gummy by Embody. It reduces blemishes, increases collagen, fades hyperpigmentation and provides a dewy glow, among other positive changes. Take two vegetarian gummies packed with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin b6 and a plethora of other ingredients, for best results.
It’s time to give those PMS symptoms the boot. From mood swings to physical cramps & acne, those few days before your period (and during) can really test your patience. Recently, we have seen growth in the vitamins department targeting PMS symptoms.
Try two FLO gummies to help alleviate symptoms like cramps, mood swings, bloating and hormonal acne. The plant-based supplement is gluten-free and vegan friendly. Its contents include chaste berry (which eases acne and mood swings), dong quai (cramps, bloating) Vitamin B6 (mood swings, cravings) and Lemon Balm (cramps, digestion, stress).
We all unfortunately know that 3 PM slump all too well. Luckily we can combat that sluggish feeling with some yummy gummy vitamins. Vitamin B12, apple cider vinegar and green tea are all known ingredients that give you energy. Goli vegan gummies are a mere 15 calories, free of gluten, soy, gelatin, wheat, milk and more, making them suitable for a variety of diets.
Pomegranate, beetroots, citric acid, Vitamin b12 and additional ingredients provide cellular energy production, combat fatigue, and support the metabolism of nutrients. The sweet apple taste will delight, and it doesn’t have to be consumed with food (although, you can eat it with something if you want to)!
Comfy pillows, a supportive mattress and blackout shades can only do so much. For nights when you just can’t fall asleep, help yourself to some gummy vitamins mixed with sleep-inducing properties. SugarBear Sleep provides melatonin (to regulate your sleep cycle), magnesium (to promote deep, restorative sleep), lemon balm leaf (for a peaceful state of mind) and passionflower (to calm and relax). These bear-shaped gummies are vegan, soy-free, gluten-free and berry-flavored, without artificial sweeteners and flavors. Chew on these and catch some Zs!
Next time you’re reaching for something sweet, consider these Vitamins — instead of the candy jar.
