It’s National Little League Month! So allow us to introduce our Little League of bears, here to help your own Little Leaguers be their absolute best!
Vegums are nutritious little gummy bears designed to deliver the daily dose of vitamins and minerals without it being a chore. Unlike a pill or a capsule, kids won’t be able to resist two tasty gummy bears a day! So, what do our star players bring to the pitch?
First up… The Multivitamin for Vegans
Our Multivitamin strawberry-flavored gummy bear is seriously multi-talented… With Vitamins B12, B6 & D, and selenium, iodine and folic acid, this guy is the all-rounder you want. The B vitamin group (including folic acid) plays a vital role in keeping the nervous system communicating with the rest of the body, along with maintaining a healthy metabolism, and boosting energy production.
Selenium doesn’t get the same attention as some other well-known vitamins and minerals, but it’s an essential: its main function is to help support the immune system, so it’s especially important to think about when your kids are getting their vaccinations as it’ll help to stimulate antibodies and make the vaccinations more effective. Like selenium, Vitamin D aids your child’s immune system, but it also has some other benefits! Vitamin D works alongside calcium, and helps our bodies absorb it. It also helps little ones grow up big and strong by supporting healthy bone growth.
Last but not least… iodine isn’t just something used in chemistry class! It turns out that iodine should be present in our diets too. Our body (and our child’s body) use iodine to help the thyroid gland produce the correct hormones that control growth and metabolism.
Batting next… Iron Gummies!
Our blackberry-flavored Iron gummy just has the one signature move: 7mg of iron ready and raring to help get that blood pumping! Iron is important for everyone, as it helps red blood cells carry oxygen around the body. Without enough iron you can become anemic, leading to tiredness and fatigue – not what you want to be feeling on the field or in the classroom!
It also plays a big part in child cognitive development. A lack of iron in children has been associated with developmental delays, problems with attention, learning and motor skills.
Vegan or vegetarian children are more likely to need a supplement for iron, as red meat is usually the best source. Supplementing iron is a good idea during puberty too, as more is needed to help with those growth spurts, and the loss of blood from periods!
Home Run for Omega-3!
There’s nothing fishy about the way our Fish-Free Omega-3 gummies play! With 40mg of DHA (the most bioavailable form of omega-3) per zesty orange gummy from marine algae, our gummies are the perfect palatable alternative to fish oil supplements.
Omega-3 plays a huge role in the healthy development of your child’s brain, as well as in visual development. Some recent research has shown omega’s may also help relieve the symptoms of ADHD in children. A brain boost is just what’s needed for concentrating on getting top grades, and it always helps to keep your healthy eyes on the ball – literally!
So what are The Big Three’s stats?
They really do love to work together! Our gummy vitamin range has been designed to make up a winning team when you combine the three, formulated for anyone over the age of 4 to cover all bases – especially if your game is plant-powered. Subscribing to all 3 of our vegan-certified gummies means a tasty treat of 6 bears per day, with no fuss. Chances are, the adults in the family will want a daily dose too – cheering from the sidelines is hard work after all!
