I used to be really diligent about my daily vitamins. Someone - my mother probably - advised that I needed to start taking them regularly to maintain optimal health, and I obliged. But once the bottle ran out, however, pill-fatigue set in, and my commitment to my daily supplements stint was over, short-lived to say the least. That is until recently when I was introduced to The Kiwi Goodness Company’s Wellness Gummies.
The term ‘gummy vitamin’ has always seemed like a bit of an oxymoron to me as if any type of supplement with health benefits needed to taste bitter or medicinal in order to work. But, truth is, I’ve come to swear by them. It’s 11 am and I’ve already consumed two Mānuka Honey & Apple Cider Vinegar gummies, and two Manuka Honey Turmeric, Ginger and Lemon gummies. I’ve been on a similar trajectory for the past few weeks. I don’t know whether they’ve adequately protected me against whatever it is vitamins are supposed to protect me from, but I feel good... I feel s-t-r-o-n-g.
Designed to support gut flora and overall digestive health, these gummies provide all the benefits of Mānuka Honey and Apple Cider Vinegar combined into an easy to chew, tasty treat. The MGO 263+ grade Manuka Honey has strong anti-bacterial powers, which help to fight harmful bacteria, reduce acid reflux and balance your digestive system. Two gummies are also packed with the equivalent of two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, commonly used to discourage the body from turning sugars into fat, to help give your metabolism the kickstart it needs. But unlike having to swallow two tablespoons of ACV, they also taste, really, really good, and it’s essentially Christmas in my mouth every time I have the privilege of chewing.
Next cab off the rank is the Manuka Honey Turmeric, Ginger and Lemon gummies, which are all about boosting immunity. Turmeric is a world-renowned anti-inflammatory compound, which aids the body’s ability to fight pathogens and repair cellular damage. Lemon and ginger are a famed immunity-boosting duo that goes exceedingly well with the powerful properties of honey which we touched on earlier.
The Kiwi Goodness Company’s Wellness Gummies are entirely Kiwi owned-and-operated, and their ethos is championing the bounty of New Zealand’s natural ingredients. Whether you’re looking for an immunity-boost or something to kickstart your metabolism, these gummies truly are your best sidekick. Make no mistake, these aren’t dinosaur-shaped or designed to trick your kids into consuming their vitamins, these are used and consumed by adults, like me, who feels a lot better about knocking back a few vitamins pre-lunch then, I don’t know, a box of ginger kisses. Like everything, there’s no one size fits all when it comes to wellness, but I definitely don’t get sick often, and the fact that I took no vitamins at all before definitely helps make their case.
