6 of the best vitamin D gummies 2022

vitamin d gummies
Discover 6 of the best vitamin D gummies available in 2022 here at Holland & Barrett & why you may prefer a tasty, gummy version of the sunshine vitamin.

Fruity…chewy… no we’re not talking about your favourite sweets!

Vitamin D gummies can be a fun and tasty way to get your daily dose of the sunshine vitamin; here are 6 of our favourites here at H&B.

What are vitamin D gummies?

Vitamin D gummies are a chewable – and often much tastier – way to get your daily dose of vitamin D.

They’re a great alternative to classic tablets, especially if you struggle to swallow them or have some picky children under your care!

Why do we need vitamin D?

Our bodies make around 90% of the vitamin D it needs from direct UV light from sunshine – the skin needs to be exposed with no clothing or SPF blocking the warm rays.

Unfortunately, we can’t always get enough of the ‘sunshine vitamin’ from sun exposure – especially in the darker autumn and winter months.

This is why the NHS advises most of us to take a 10ug vitamin D supplement during the colder months, as it can be quite difficult to get vitamin D from food.

Some people are even advised to take it all year round, including over 65s, those with darker skin, people who cover up skin often, e.g., for cultural or religious reasons, and vegans.

What are the benefits of vitamin D?

Vitamin D is one of the most important nutrients for our overall health. It’s essential for many bodily functions, including:

  • Building healthy bones: our bodies need vitamin D to extract calcium from the food we eat. If somebody has a vitamin D deficiency, they cannot absorb enough calcium, which can lead to weak bones that are more likely to fracture.
  • Supporting immunity: your immune system needs vitamin D to function normally. This system protects our bodies from foreign substances like infections and diseases, and fighting them off if any ‘slip through’.
  • Supporting muscle function: Vitamin D supplements ensure that muscles keep functioning normally.
  • Calcium & Phosphorus levels: Vitamin D contributes to both of the normal utilisation and absorption of calcium and phosphorus

Are vitamin D gummies as good as other vitamin D supplements?

Yes, they can be!

It all depends on the brand, quality and dosage, but a 10ug vitamin D tablet and a 10ug vitamin D gummy should nourish your body in the same way – so take your pick!

What are the benefits of vitamin D gummies?

  1. Easy to take

Hate swallowing tablets?

Vitamin D gummies are an easy alternative for those who struggle to take traditional tablets or capsules.

  1. Better taste

Vitamin D gummies usually have a fruity flavour, and when you compare that to a chalky tablet… there really is no comparison.

If you value taste above all, you may prefer vitamin D gummies.

  1. Convenient

Unless you’re one of those pros who can swallow tablets or capsules dry, you’re going to need water or another drink to wash a tablet down – which can be inconvenient at times.

The great thing about vitamin D gummies is that you can chew them on the go without needing a drink.

They are also great for taking to work, holiday or camping for the same reason.

Which form of vitamin D is best absorbed?         

There are 2 forms of vitamin D that are important for our health: vitamin D2 and vitamin D3.

Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) is made by plants. Wild mushrooms and those grown under a UV light are the best source.

Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is made by our skin when we are exposed to enough direct UV rays from sunlight.

Animal products like fish, meat, eggs and dairy as well as a vegan-friendly fungus called lichen also naturally contain this form of vitamin D.

Research suggests that vitamin D3 is more important for our health than vitamin D2.

This is why it is advised that you choose a vitamin D3 supplement or one with a combination of both forms.

Are vitamin D3 Gummies effective?

Yes, vitamin D3 is often regarded as the most ‘available’ vitamin D for our bodies, so vitamin D3 gummies should be effective at maintaining healthy vitamin D levels.

What are the best vitamin D gummies?

Now you know all there is to know about vitamin D gummies, let us show you our favourites here at H&B.
