Are IronKids Omega 3 Gummy Vitamins Tested To Be Free Of Contaminants?
At Life Science Nutritionals we use only 100% pure sourced fish oil which is triple distilled and purified to removed all traces of mercury and other contaminants. We ensure only the purest ingredients go into making our IronKids and Adult Essentials Gummy Vitamins so your family can be certain you are getting a quality health product.
There is mounting evidence that EPA+DHA is the preferred source of Omega 3 for normal functioning of neural tissue (including cognitive performance, learning ability, memory), visual acuity, and cardiovascular health. Experts recommend fatty fish a minimum of 2 times per week or the equivalent in an Omega 3 supplement (about 500-1000 mg of EPA+DPA per day).
How Much Sugar & How Many Calories Are In One Gummy Vitamin?
There are approximately 1.4 grams of sugar and 6 calories per gummy vitamin. Which also means there are 6 carbohydrates per gummy vitamin.
If you are concerned about sugar in your or your child’s diet, we have some articles that can help provide some perspective and reference avoiding foods with added or unnecessary sugar.
Sugar is the simplest form of carbohydrates, which our bodies use for energy. What’s important is knowing the difference between naturally occurring sugar, beneficial sugar and added sugar. Eating sugar that fuels your body and provide nutrients can be the hero that saves the day!
While a gummy vitamin does contain sugar, you are also getting the benefit of the vitamins and this should be considered when looking at all your daily food choices.
Are IronKids Pectin or Gelatin Based Gummies?
Our line of IronKids Gummy Vitamins (Multi, Fibre, Vitamin D) are pectin based which is derived from plants.
The exception is our IronKids Omega 3′s Gummies which are made from gelatin. The gelatin used is from a bovine (cow) source.
