As first-time parents, we tried to provide our child with the best…loving attention, a well-balanced diet and vitamins. Gummy vitamins recommended by the doctor, to be exact. What we discovered when our son turned 2 1/2, was that gummy vitamins had attacked his teeth. Our dentist told us that the vitamins are full of sugars and sticky gelatin which gets jammed in kids’ teeth, causing cavities. If you’ve ever tried to brush a 2 ½ year old’s teeth, you know that it’s a lesson in futility and they’re mostly just swishing yummy, fruit flavored toothpaste around!
After much emotional, mental and physical stress, we all recovered. But then our real challenge began: finding a vitamin that our young son would willingly take.
We educated ourselves, reading numerous reports and articles about gelatin, the primary ingredient in ‘most’ gummy’s.
- Gelatin is an ingredient that humans don’t digest well.
- The chewy matter sticks for days on end to our teeth.
- It’s made out of animal bone marrow and hooves of pigs and cows.
- The majority of vitamins don’t get absorbed due to the gelatin casing.
Naturally, we wanted gelatin free gummy vitamins, which were almost impossible to find!
So we created Vitamin Friends, a gelatin free, non-sticky, high quality gummy vitamin. The secret solution was pectin, a citrus peel that is 100% natural, is high in fiber and an ingredient that our bodies respond well to.
