Are gummy vitamins better for children?
It depends on your child’s preferences.
Gummy vitamins are easier for children to take due to the soft texture and the range of flavours available, and you can even disguise them as a delicious treat to convince your child to enjoy an essential source of goodness.
However, sometimes gummy vitamins have a lower vitamin count and may contain a higher amount of sugar compared to a chewable variety, but chewable vitamins may have a chalky texture that your child might not like.
Are gummy vitamins halal?
Gummy vitamins are a popular choice, especially for those who struggle to take tablets, like small children.
However, most gummy vitamins are usually made with the animal product gelatine, so you’ll need to look for a vegetarian alternative or a halal-certified product.
But these might still contain alcohol, so always read the label carefully to be safe.
Can adults take children’s vitamins?
Children and adults have different dietary needs, so it’s best not to take children’s vitamins during adulthood unless advised by your doctor.
Taking them probably won’t cause you any harm, but you may find that you’ll be lacking the essential vitamins you need for your age.
However, the dosage is typically lower in children’s vitamins compared to an adult variety, and they’re easier to take, too.
If you’re concerned about experiencing side effects with stronger vitamins or struggle to take them, speak to your doctor to see if they’d be right for you.
Do multivitamin tablets work?
Vitamin supplements can be effective at treating deficiencies in certain nutrients when you’re not getting enough of them from your diet or lifestyle.
Your diet should always be the first place you look to for your vitamin intake, but if you find that you’re struggling to get enough of a certain nutrient, vitamin supplements could help you get back on track.
When choosing your vitamin supplements, we’d recommend asking your doctor or pharmacist for advice that’s tailored to you.
They can help you to assess your lifestyle and nutritional needs and make sure these are met through a balanced diet with food supplements to back up your intake if you need them.
