As a runner, I’m always trying to make sure I eat the right foods to not only fuel my workouts, but help me recover from hard efforts. Food is fuel at rest, in motion and in recovery. I’m definitely not perfect but I think I balance the better-for-me foods with less healthy options. 80/20 all the way! I’m human after all.
Eating real food is always the best way to get all the nutrients in your daily diet. But even the healthiest diets can have nutrient gaps. That’s where supplements come into play.
Gummy vitamins make me think of occasional candies, fruit snacks as fuel on a long run, or vitamins my kids will actually take. But adult gummy vitamins? No way. Those don’t exist.
Taking supplements has now become a part of my everyday routine for bone health and to increase my iron. I have no problem swallowing pills, but others absolutely hate it. My husband is one of them. When I told him he should take supplements, he asked if there are chewable adult vitamins on the market. Sorry Ron, gummies are for kids. Or at least that’s what I thought. He’s more likely to chomp on a gummy vitamin than have to swallow a tablet or capsule. That’s why the new MegaFood Gummies are perfect for him. Actually, they are perfect for everyone suffering from pill fatigue or looking to enhance their wellness with an incredibly tasty and beneficial supplement.
MegaFood Gummies aren’t your typical gummy. These are the real deal made with real food and no corn syrup, gelatin (vegetarian friendly!), added flavors, or added colors of any kind. It’s also the first certified Glyphosate Residue Free (GRF) gummy vitamin available. What does that mean? Based on government limited of detection protocols, glyphosate is the number one herbicide used in the United States and MegaFood products are completely free of it. I loved that the Gummy B12 Energy actually tastes like a cranberry not a sticky sweet, sugary version of a cranberry. If you don’t believe that each gummy is made with real food, just hold a gummy up to the light. You can see actual food inside the gummies! These goodness-filled gummies are the perfect complement to any supplement regiment, giving a boost to your nutrient intake.
MegaFood uses over 500,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables every year. Using their Slo-Food Process™, they combine real food with vitamins to produce high quality, nutrient rich vitamins that can even be taken on an empty stomach. The farm fresh food, like ginger, cranberries, beets, blueberries, turmeric and oranges, are all sourced from trusted farm partners.
MegaFood Gummies are now available in four flavors: B12 Energy – Cranberry, B12 Energy – Ginger, D3 Wellness – Mixed Berry and C Defense – Tangy Citrus (below).
Usually I’m not a fan of sharing my stuff but I’m happy to let Ron enjoy the MegaFood gummies if it means he’ll actually take a vitamin. Now he will just as long as it’s a MegaFood gummy!
