Are gummy vitamins absorbed better than pills?

There is some evidence to suggest that some gummy vitamins are absorbed easier by the body than normal vitamin pills1, but more research needs to be conducted to prove this.

What happens if you eat too many gummy vitamins?

They may look and taste like sweets, but that doesn’t mean you should polish off the whole container like a bag of sweeties!

‘Overdosing’ on vitamins can be harmful and even dangerous. Always make sure you read the label on the back of your gummy vitamins to find out the correct dose for you and stick to it.

Please also make sure to contact your doctor if you have medical conditions or are on any regular medications to see if the vitamins are suitable for you.
