Gummies are in increasingly popular way to take nutritional supplements particularly for children. We asked the experts from Nutrigums to explain why
Why are gummies a good way to get nutrients?
We know how important a good supply of nutrients is for our health. We also know that some people really struggle with taking large tablets, so we wanted to make nutrient intake as easy and enjoyable as possible. Getting your nutrients in gummy form achieves this. Simply chewing on a gummy as you would any food means that you can obtain vitamins and minerals that are usually quite unpleasant in a delicious form. This makes it a much more enjoyable experience whilst still getting the health benefits. Studies show that the nutrients in gummies are absorbed just as well as tablets. In fact, a recent study showed that Vitamin D is better absorbed in gummy form than tablet form – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6566230/
What is the most important vitamin found in Nutrigums and what does it do?
Nutrigums has a variety of different products providing a variety of different nutrients. One ingredient that is very popular and most people have heard of is Vitamin D. Vitamin D has many health benefits, but the main ones are to help our immune system along with the health of our bones, teeth and muscles. We get most of our Vitamin D from the sun but many people in the UK are deficient. This is why the Dept of health have recommended that we take a Vitamin D supplement in the Autumn and Winter months. Nutrigums Vitamin D gummies are a delicious natural lemon flavour. This makes it an easy way to get your Vitamin D intake every day. Adults and children over the age of 12 can simply chew on one a day to get 1,000iu of Vitamin D.
What other ingredients are found in Nutrigums and what do they do?
Nutrigums have an immune support product which contains Vitamin C, Zinc and Black Elderberry. This combination of ingredients is designed to support our immune system and keep it up and running as efficiently as possible to help us fight off bugs, coughs and colds and viruses. Black Elderberry is high in nutrients especially Vitamin C, fibre, flavanols and antioxidants. Elderberry extract has been found to help reduce the length and severity of symptoms caused by the influenza virus.
Nutrigums Vitamin C product provides 80mg of Vitamin C per gummy. This is 100% of the recommended daily intake. Vitamin C is beneficial for health for a huge number of reasons including supporting our immune system, reducing tiredness and fatigue and helping with collagen formation. Nutrigums hair complex contains a variety of ingredients all bought together to help with any hair problems or support the growth of healthy hair. These ingredients are B vitamins, zinc, iodine, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Vitamin A.
In addition, Nutrigums has an Energy Vitamin B complex gummy to help with flagging energy levels and feelings of lethargy. The ingredients of ginger, Turmeric and black pepper come together in another Nutrigums product. These three ingredients work well together and are taken often to help with joint problems.
Nutrigums also provide an Apple Cider Vinegar gummy. Apple Cider Vinegar has been used for centuries for its health-giving properties. The benefits are thought to come from its main active compound known as acetic acid. The main problem with Apple Cider Vinegar has always been its taste! It is very sharp and can be difficult to take. Thankfully this problem has now been solved with Apple Cider Vinegar gummies! To make the Apple Cider Vinegar gummies even better, we have added some further ingredients such as B Vitamins, Vitamin C and Chromium. These ingredients help our immune system, our blood glucose levels and even help reduce tiredness and fatigue.
Who could benefit from taking Nutrigums and are they suitable for all ages?
Everyone can benefit from taking Nutrigums! As with most supplements, we do suggest that you contact your health care provider before taking any if you are on prescription medication. Gummies could be a choking hazard for small children, so we recommend them for ages 12 upwards. They are a great way for children of this age and for teenagers to get their nutrients. And of course, great for adults too!
Are Nutrigums suitable for vegetarians or vegans?
All of Nutrigums products are suitable for vegans as, unlike most gummies, we use pectin fruit instead of animal derived gelatine. Nutrigums Vitamin D is suitable for just vegetarians since the Vitamin D is derived from lanolin.
Are there any hidden nasty chemical ingredients in Nutrigums?
What you see is what you get with Nutrigums products – nothing is hidden! We want the products to be as natural as possible and make sure we only use natural flavourings and colourings in all of the formulations. We keep to natural ingredients where we can and ensure that the gummies are always free from animal gelatin.

What is the story behind the company?
Nutrigums was founded in 2020 by Fabian Whittingham and his wife Louise. Fabian has spent more than 20 years developing wellness nutrition products for the industry. Both Fabian & Louise were tired of seeing brands that offered only big chalky hard to swallow tablets. Noticing a lack of easier & more convenient ways to take vitamins and supplements. They set out developing a new age functional gummy brand, so Nutrigums was born! Using Fabian’s industry knowledge of the best ingredients and quality manufactures, the husband-and-wife team created a range of gummies that taste delicious and carried no animal gelatine – whilst providing good strengths of active ingredients.
