Are Gummy Vitamins Actually Healthy? Here’s What To Know

Gummy vitamins are chewable vitamins that have a texture and taste similar to gummy candies and come in a variety of flavors, colors, and shapes (hello Vital shield!)

They’re one of the most popular types of vitamins because they appeal to adults looking to add some fun (and maybe even a little nostalgia) into their wellness routines—especially those who may not like swallowing pills. 

Gummy vitamins have several positives such as an enjoyable taste and texture, in addition to the nutrients they provide. However, on the downside, many gummies can contain excessive amounts of sugar and artificial flavors and colors. So, you might be wondering if adding gummy vitamins to your wellness routine is actually beneficial.

We tapped our in-house functional nutrition expert Olivia Pelaez to set the record straight on how gummy vitamins can be not only delicious but effective too! Plus, we’ll dive into why people love our Wellness Gummies collection. Hint: there’s something for everyone!

Are gummy vitamins effective?

Just like with any nutritional supplement, it is always important to review the supplement facts panel for active ingredients as well as any ingredients worth avoiding (looking at you artificial flavors!). 

When choosing a gummy vitamin, keep in mind that sugar is a common ingredient not only for taste, but for structure as well. Vital Proteins® Wellness Gummies contain only 3–5g of sugar per serving with no synthetic colors or artificial flavors. 

Don’t let the delicious flavor and texture fool you; gummy vitamins are not meant to be consumed like candy! However, because they are a fun and tasty format to consume, it may make compliance more likely for some individuals. Long story short, these tasty gummy vitamins can help you establish a wellness routine you’ll actually look forward to. 

Who should take gummy vitamins?

Gummy vitamins truly can be for anyone! If you are someone who maybe is experiencing capsule fatigue or is looking for a tasty alternative to traditional vitamin supplements, gummies can be for you. Vital Proteins offers six different gummies offering benefits ranging from reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles**^ and supporting skin elasticity ** to supporting gut health** and promoting energy**. So pick one, or more, that works for you! 

Should you eat vitamin gummies every day?

One of the best things about our Wellness Gummies collection is that they are all made to be incorporated into your daily wellness (and current collagen) routine. As always, be sure to check with your doctor before implementing any dietary changes.

When should I take gummy vitamins?

One of the great things about our Wellness Gummies is that they are made to fit your lifestyle. You can take the gummies that have the benefits you’re looking for any time of day. (Lively note, since our Sleep Gummies contain snooze-inducing ingredients such as melatonin and L-theanine, you should only enjoy 1 to 2 Sleep Gummies before bedtime to support healthy and restful sleep.**)

Why Vital Proteins gummy vitamins?

One of the best things about the Vital Proteins® Wellness Gummies (shop now) portfolio is that we’ve developed six different gummies each with your unique needs in mind, each in its own delicious flavor. Our bite-sized collection includes Collagen Gummies, Beauty Gummies, Women’s Multi Gummies and three functional powerhouses: Immune Support** Gummies, Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies and Sleep Gummies.

The entire portfolio of these one-step routines is free of synthetic colors, artificial flavors, and made without gluten, dairy or soy. Each was formulated with intention and contains vitamins and minerals in efficacious amounts.

“I was so excited when our gummies launched and I couldn’t wait to incorporate them into my wellness routine,” Pelaez says. “Collagen Gummies and Apple Cider Vinegar gummies have become staples in my wellness routine and when I travel, I love to bring Sleep gummies on the road with me to help support a restful night’s sleep.** And the best part, they are in the shape of the iconic Vital shield!”
