Our Commitment To You | Allergen-Free Gummy Vitamins

According to FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education), 32 million Americans are living with potentially life-threatening food allergies and one in 13 children has a food allergy. The percentage of children with food allergies has increased dramatically in recent years. A food allergy is an immune system reaction that typically occurs immediately after eating certain proteins found in food. Even the smallest amount of allergy-causing food can trigger signs and symptoms such as hives, itching, swollen airways, wheezing, abdominal pain, and more. For some, food allergies can be life-threatening and diagnosing can be challenging. While there is no cure for food allergies, one way to prevent a reaction is to avoid food allergens by making changes to your diet and lifestyle. Bettera Wellness supports Allergen Awareness. We take great care in making sure that all of our gummy vitamin products are free of the US Major Food Allergens, as defined by the US FDA (egg, fish, milk, peanuts, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat).

The Growing Popularity of Gummy Vitamins

With an increased focus on the role of a balanced diet and proper nutrition in maintaining and improving good health, multivitamin supplements are rising in popularity. We have a greater understanding of the benefits vitamins can provide us, and as a result, multivitamin supplements are steadily becoming sought after by people of all ages. Over half of the United States population takes at least one vitamin supplement a day. Adults age 25-44 are the top users of multivitamin supplements and are key drivers of market growth. Standard multivitamins can be large and difficult to swallow and can be met with resistance by many people. Many consumers are finding they prefer the experience of consuming gummy vitamins over other more traditional formats such as swallowing tablets and capsules. Not only are gummy vitamins soft and chewable, but they also taste great, much like the sweet gummy fruits and candies that children love. Gummy vitamins come in a fun variety of colors, shapes and flavors and may include several vitamins and minerals or highlight just a few select nutrients, such as vitamin C, iron, biotin, or calcium. Gummy multivitamins are a popular alternative for those who want to be sure they [...]

It's involved in many body functions, including formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth.
