Did you know that gummy bears were firstly developed by Johannes “Hans” Riegel back in 1922? He was a German confectioner who founded the Haribo Confectionery at that time. Actually, Haribo gummies got their name as an acronym for Hans Riegel and Bonn, which is the German town where it was founded in.
Today, the gummies have obviously surpassed Riegel’s original intentions – they represent also a novel form of food supplements. And this was kind of expected. I mean, let’s be honest – who likes to take pills and capsules on a daily basis? Although food supplements are sources of nutrients that we consume to cover our body’s needs, it is not the most exciting moment when you take them, right? Therefore, healthy gummies with vitamins, minerals and other beneficial ingredients are a perfect solution to this problem.
Gummies are indeed fun and easy to eat, they taste good and are super convenient. You can have them in the car, in your bag, in your office, on your night table… literally everywhere.
But of course, like for any other food supplement, there are some things you need to consider when buying gummies. Do they contain artificial sweeteners? Are they made with gelatine or are they suitable for vegans? Which and how many of certain active compounds like vitamins and minerals do they contain?
We were thinking about all of these questions when we were developing our brand-new product – The High Life CBD + MULTIVITAMIN GUMMIES. Our gummies are gluten and fat-free, vegan-friendly and non-GMO. Besides the regular actives – vitamins A, B6, C, D3, folic acid and Zinc to name only a few and which contribute to the normal functioning of the immune system, we upgraded the formula with the addition of a water-soluble full spectrum hemp extract which contains Cannabidiol (CBD) and other beneficial cannabinoids.
