I know that it is very important to give my son a multi-vitamin daily to supplement the nutrition that he normally wouldn’t get through what he eats, but with him being so picky I had a hard time finding a multi-vitamin that he would actually take until I ran across Yummi Bears and I thought it couldn’t hurt to give them a try!!
About Hero Natritionals (Taken From Website):
Established in 1995, Hero Nutritionals is the leader in creating innovative & unique delivery systems in the natural products industry. Hero made vitamin history by being the first company to put vitamins & minerals into a gummy delivery system.
Ms. Hodges, Founder & CEO, landed on the idea of formulating high quality, nutritionally sound children’s supplements in the mid-90’s as she observed her nieces & other children gobbling up candies, particularly multi-flavored gummy bears. Ms. Hodges also observed her sister’s need to constantly remind her children to “take your vitamins”. Conventional supplements were not very appealing to the children because of their crunchy bite, chalkiness & unpleasant after-taste.
Concerned about the health & well-being of children, Ms. Hodges began consulting with children’s nutritionists, food chemists & production experts. The challenge was to create a new children’s nutritional delivery system incorporating the delightful taste of gummy bears without sacrificing nutritional value. Two years later, the first all natural gummy vitamin was ready for market & has since become the #1 selling children’s vitamin in the industry.
Due to the overwhelming success of the Yummi Bears line & to the thousands of calls from moms & dads saying they too wanted an easier way to take their vitamins every day, Hero recently launched Slice of Life, a full line of all natural, citrus slice gummy vitamins for adults.
We were sent several sample packages to review!!
The first product we were sent was the Yummi Bears Multi-Vitamin for “Bug” to try and he seems to really like them and it’s no longer a fuss to get him to take his vitamins. And of course I had to give them a try and I have to admit that these do not taste like other multi-vitamins that I’ve tried to give to him in the past, to me they taste just like to original candy gummy bears!!!
We were also sent the Yummi Bears Organics Multi-Vitamin & Mineral. These are probably my favorite out of the two multi-vitamins that we were sent for the simple fact that they are Its organic and all natural so that I know that “Bug” is getting only the best!! He also seems to prefer these over the other vitamins but I think it’s because they are easier for him to chew and move on what he was doing in a hurry! I’ve also tried these and I love them myself they are really yummy for a multi-vitamin and they kind of remind me of the orange slices you can get at drugstores in the candy section.
The last product sample we were sent was the Healthy Indulgence Daily Wellness Balanced Multi-Vitamins & Minerals for adults. Now I didn’t know that Hero Nutritionals made and sold vitamins for adults, but boy am I glad to have found out and I absolutely love this multi-vitamin!! I myself have a pretty weak immune system so I’m constantly trying new vitamins and such to help boost it and I’ve had a hard time finding one that I could take that was either yummy or easy to swallow/drink but these are enveloped in dark chocolate so it’s super yummy for me to take and I actually enjoy taking my multi-vitamin now!!
Over all we are very happy with all of the sample packages we were sent and will be sure to only purchase Hero Nutritionals from now on! It has really simplified our multi-vitamin daily routine, I no longer put off taking mine and I don’t have to fight with “Bug” to get him to take his so it’s a win-win for the both of us he gets great taste and I get the satisfaction of knowing he is well supplied on his vitamins and minerals!!
I recommend Yummi Bears to any parent or guardian of a child that needs a yummy and healthy multi-vitamin every day!!
