I am so stoked to have received the above goodies from Wicked Gummy Co. Thank you so much! In my package I received all five gummies, as follows:-

Vitamin D is one of the most important vitamins I take to help keep my depression at bay. Researches have found that it can affect the levels of brain chemicals including serotonin.

Hair, skin & nails vitamins and supplements have become very popular in recent years and I try to ensure I am consuming the right vitamins and minerals to maintain healthy skin, hair and nails.

I'm most excited about this one as looking at the benefits and also the ingredients, I think it could be highly beneficial for my depression and not just sleep quality. I have been taking these over the last week and have genuinely found myself falling into very deep sleeps.

I always recommend people should take multivitamins and ensure they're consuming the nutrients they require.

These vitamins include a mixture of bacterial cultures that aid your digestive health.
The first thing I did on receipt of these products is have an in depth look at the ingredients (I have written all of the ingredients above as stated on their site) and I'm impressed with Wicked Gummy's ethos and their commitment to high quality, smart supplements with the following great qualities as quoted on their site:
I was a little concerned as most of them they contain sugar, fat and glucose but per two gummies (the recommended amount to take) they range between 7-20kcal. Find out more nutritional info on their website.
Secondly, was the taste test. There's no use having cute gummies that look great (I love the product design) on your shelf but taste awful. But these are all round very pleasant (I think my favourites are the Multivitamins) and are just like having a tasty treat. They would be great for people who struggle with swallowing pills etc but want/need to take vitamins.
It's clear these are products of a high quality and that is reflected in the price. They range from £14.99 per tub to £23.99 - individual prices are above. If you visit the shop, there are various different bundle offers available for you to choose from or you can buy all five for £70.66. On first entering the site a pop up appears offering 20% off which is definitely worth taking advantage of. There are 60 gummies per tub but the recommended dose is 2 gummies so one tub is roughly a month's worth and I do feel that is quite a premium price in comparison with standard vitamins. However, looking briefly at the market for chewable vitamins the prices range from a few pounds (Boots offer a gummy multivitamin for £3.99) to £30 (SugarBearHair are £29.99 for a month's supply on Amazon) so they are potentially mid to high range in price.
I take a mixture of vitamins every day including Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B Complex, Multivitamins, BCAAs (for fitness recovery purposes) and omega 3 oil capsules. It's very difficult to ensure you're getting all of your vitamins in your diet so taking them is always a good idea! I would recommend checking the quality on any vitamins you purchase as it ranges so much, generally I find health store vitamins of great quality (and they're always happy to chat to you about them) and supermarket vitamins provide very limited nourishment.
I do feel there is nothing more positive than investing in your health and would genuinely recommend anybody looking for natural, high quality vitamins that are also tasty treats to try these out! Yummy!
