First off, let me tell you that gummy bears are my favorite candy. I love anything gummy really. So when I saw a table set up at the gym with these presented, I bee-lined to them before starting my workout. The table was set up with samples and information. Now I wish I took a picture because the table was set up really well.

I had a flyer but it was given to someone so I pulled information from their site that really caught my attention about this company.

The Gummies Co Brand was developed to help offer a healthy and convenient alternative to taking daily micro-nutrients. Our goal is to produce a complete line of nutritional products with all natural ingredients that are both effective and seriously delicious.

The Gummies Co. offers an incredibly unique category of all natural gummy vitamins, using only the highest standards in manufacturing and quality control. Made in a IQC, cGMP* & FDA regulated facility, our all natural gummies line is certified Non GMO, free of artificial colors & sweeteners, gluten free, gelatin free and citrus pectin based.

cGMP- Refers to the Current Good Manufacturing Practices: regulations enforced by the  US Food and Drug Administration-FDA. cGMP certification helps assure proper formulations, development, quality control and manufacturing control packaging and processing and its facilities.

Pectin is mainly extracted from citrus fruits, and is used in food as a gelling agent, particularly in jams and jellies and serves as a good source of dietary fiber. The Gummies Co uses plant-based, citrus pectin as an alternative to gelatin. Gelatin is currently the most widely used gelling agent in gummy candies and is made by prolonged boiling of skin, cartilage and bones from animal bi-products. Using citrus pectin ensures that our products are Halal, Kosher & Vegan approved.

Having this explained really got us interested. This product is complete VEGAN FRIENDLY. They use pectin instead of gelatin. The next day we bought the vitamins from the EXN store right next to the gym. They didn’t have her green coffee extract. We REALLY wanted that one to help with the weight loss. If they don’t have it in this week then we’ll buy it from somewhere else.

Flavor – 7

You can taste the iron, it has iron in it which most multivitamins don’t and I appreciate that, when you start but as the days go on, you get use to it. I like the taste.

Texture – 10

The pectin doesn’t give the gummies the same firmness as the gummies with gelatin. It’s easy to chew and melts in your mouth. I think this is good for people who don’t like gummies that get stuck in your teeth.

Price – 10

it’s around the same price as any other multivitamin, pill or gummy. $25

Packaging – 10

I love the colors of the bottles. They are bright and eye-catching. The bottles have a child proof cap so they can’t open it because they think it’s candy. Unlike other companies, who fills up half the bottle, they fill the ENTIRE bottle. So much so that, when open, you can see that the vitamins at the top are squished.

Distribution – 8

Unfortunately, these are only sold in EXN Supplement, Nutritional Power Center and other supplement stores that we don’t go to. Hopefully they will expand to GNC, Vitamin Shoppe and other stores in the future.

Overall, I give this product 9/10! We will be going back to get another bottle and to see if they have the green coffee extract. We will also try the other bottles they are selling. You can’t beat vegan friendly!  I’m so happy that this product was presented to us at the gym and we’ll use it for now on.

Health Benefits of Almond Milk

I love having unsweetened vanilla almond milk with my coffee and cereal. I haven’t drunken regular milk in years. Recently I have been drinking a lot more than usual and I started thinking about the health benefits of it which I didn’t know what they were. So I’m sharing with you guys what I found out.

  • Helps with blood pressure
  • Best alternative for people who can’t have soy milk and regular milk
  • Because almonds has low to no cholesterol, it’s better for the heart. It will help prevent heart disease.
  • It helps build muscles because it has a good amount of protein and Riboflavin, a form of vitamin B.
  • There’s calcium that helps with strong and healthy bones
  • It has vitamin E that will keep your skin healthy
  • If your baby won’t drink breast milk, almond milk is a great substitute because it contains similar vitamins and minerals.

That’s so awesome right? I’m been very interested in knowing what the things I eat and drink are doing to help my body live long. If you know anything else about almond milk or even almonds for that matter, don’t be shy and share! I would love to share what you know. The more knowledge we share, the better we will be.
