*Vegums has entered the chat*

Vegums, a mashup of vegan + gummy, has created an eco-friendly alternative to the endless choices in drugstore supplement aisle. They’ve done their research. From the supply chain to delivery and from ingredients to packaging, Vegums fits the bill for a low impact vitamin option. Formulated by plant-based working pharmacists, Vegums is certified by the Vegan Society and run by a small team ready to support your need for quality daily vitamins that you actually want to take.

They created one of the most sustainable gummy vitamin recipes which is great for those who have issues swallowing pills or getting kiddos to take their vitamins. These days everything is available via subscription service (which has a smaller environmental footprint than regularly shopping at a brick and mortar store according to MIT). One time orders are available in addition to a hassle-free subscription that actually saves you a bit of moola. Needless to say, I was excited to incorporate Vegums gummy vitamin into my daily routine.

They now offer multiple different vitamin options; the gummy multivitamin, omega-3 gummy, and iron gummy. Check out the details below:

Multivitamin

The Vegum’s flagship multivitamin contains vitamins B12, B6 and D2 plus folic acid, selenium and iodine. It can be difficult to cram all the necessary nutrients into a plant-based diet, so the multivitamin delivers the extra vitamins and minerals your body needs.

  • Vegan gummy (gelling agents derived from citrus peel)
  • Safe for all ages (children 3-12 take 1 vitamin and 12+ take 2 vitamins)
  • Sustainably sourced
  • Zero waste packaging (compostable cellophane for freshness, cardboard tube/mailer envelope)
  • Delicious strawberry-flavor
  • Bear-shaped for added cuteness
  • Easy to carry with you (handy metal tin)
  • Affordable and easily manageable subscription
  • No artificial colors or flavors
  • Added nutrients that

Omega-3 Vitamin

We usually get our omega-3s from eating seafood (if we aren’t vegan) but sourcing from the oceans is complicated. Seafood by-products are full of chemical, metal, & micro plastic contaminants and the practices are unsustainable. Over fishing is a huge problem in addition to “ghost nets” floating around making up 46% of ocean plastic pollution!

The omega-3s we rely on from fish actually come from the algae they ingest. So, why not cut out the middle guy? Vegum’s marine algae oil is the star of their fish-free omega-3 vitamin and is sustainably produced and carefully purified to give you all the great nutrients in a fun alternative to forcing down an oily fish pill.

  • Vegan gummy (gelling agents derived from citrus peel)
  • Safe for all ages (children 3-12 take 1 vitamin and 12+ take 2 vitamins)
  • Sustainably sourced marine algae DHA (docosahexaenoic acid, the most bioavailable fatty acid in omega-3)
  • Zero waste packaging (compostable cellophane for freshness, cardboard tube/mailer envelope)
  • Delicious orange-flavored
  • Extra immune boost of vitamin E from the real oranges
  • Bear-shaped for added cuteness
  • Easy to carry with you (handy metal tin)
  • Affordable and easily manageable subscription
  • No artificial colors or flavors
  • Supports brain, heart, eye, skin, and joint health

Iron Vitamin

The iron gummies provide your daily dose of necessary iron. Iron is a mineral that plays a key role in keeping your body functioning by supporting the life cycle of red blood cells. Without enough red blood cells your body has extreme difficulty carrying enough oxygen to your body’s tissues. You may know of this as anemia which can compromise your immune system and make you feel tired and weak. Vegum’s iron gummies make getting the recommended daily dose of iron yummy and fun!

  • Vegan (gelling agents derived from citrus peel)
  • Safe for all ages (children 3-12 take 1 vitamin and 12+ take 2 vitamins)
  • Zero waste packaging (compostable cellophane for freshness and cardboard tube/mailer envelope)
  • Delicious blackberry-flavored gummies
