The Revolutionary Way of Taking Medicine

I remember when I fainted in the middle of my school assembly one day. Yes, I was that kid. My parents took me to the doctor, and he prescribed a ton of vitamin tablets and other supplements to me. It was a nightmare having to take a different medicine at a particular time of day. I had a hard time swallowing so many pills a day. It was then that I realized I had ‘pill fatigue’. 

These supplements were available in a variety of forms such as powders and liquids, and I figured it didn’t have to be this way. I could get my nutrition without having to dread its intake. So after years of taking pills, I gave them a try.

Do you think it got better for me? Let me burst that bubble right there. It only got WORSE. The powder supplements were so messy to work with. And mixing them with other liquids was incredibly time-consuming. The liquid supplements were also just as messy and left a bitter aftertaste in my mouth. I still shudder every time I think of that aftertaste.

I was stuck in a predicament. How do I get my daily nutrition without having to torture myself with these medicines?

When I was exhaustively surfing the internet for an answer, I came across gummies.

Wait, gummies? Like Candy?

Yes, gummies. Yes, like candy. And yes, I was just as confused as you probably are right now.

Gummy vitamins are chewable vitamins that look like a gummy bear or a piece of chewy chocolate but are filled with the nutrients your body needs. Ah, to be a kid again! 

Gummies are the latest innovation in the medical world, and more and more adults are switching to them from traditional pills. Gummy vitamins are one of the fastest-growing segments in the vitamin industry.

What’s so special about them?

The most obvious bonus of Gummies is, you guessed it, the TASTE!

They just taste so good and feel like you’re having a treat rather than a medicine. Gummies give you that delicious immediate gratification you want. *shudders at the horrible taste of other supplements*

While their taste is their most admirable quality, Gummies are also more convenient when compared to other supplements. They’re easy to store, easy to take and come with an affordable price tag.

Choking down a pill every day is just not enjoyable. As you grow older, the list of vitamins you take only increases. Gummies are easy to incorporate into your routine and replace these pills. Because of their taste and convenience, it is easier to stick by them than tablets and capsules.

Also, no more pill fatigue!

How many gummies do I take per day?

Once. yes, you read that right. Just once a day.

Gummies are loaded with nutrients. With traditional pills, you would have to take several vitamins a day at certain times. But with gummies, it’s different.

They’re usually available as multivitamins and contain all the right nutrients that work together to give your body its daily boost. Taking just one gummy a day will complete all your dietary requirements.

See? It’s that easy!

They sound too good, are they safe? 

Absolutely. 

Gummies are FDA compliant and also have the approval of third party certifications. Many Gummy vitamins are also available in 100% vegan formats to cater to a wider range of audience. Not only are they safe for you, but also the environment!

For adults, Gummy supplements are completely safe and reliable. Do check the label on the gummies you’re buying to make sure it ticks all the boxes in your safety checklist.

The taste, convenience and affordable price tag for gummies have made them immensely popular. Western celebrities like Kylie Jenner and the Kardashians were and still are endorsing Gummy Vitamins.

The Vitamin Underdog: Biotin

“Health is Wealth”. We’ve all heard this saying in our lives at some point or the other. And to lead a healthy lifestyle, the body should be fit both mentally and physically. Good health brings about a drastic improvement in the quality of life. If your health fails, it can cast a gloom over all other things in life.

Good nutrition is crucial in leading a healthy lifestyle. Along with exercise, consumption of vitamins and minerals regularly provides your body with the nutrition it requires. There are 13 vitamins that your body needs. And while all of them are essential, Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Vitamin B are the most essential ones.

There are 8 B vitamins, which are collectively called B-complex vitamins. These are water-soluble and while they share similar names, are chemically distinct compounds. One underrated vitamin belonging to this family is Biotin.

What is Biotin?

Biotin, also known as Vitamin H or Vitamin B7, helps the human body metabolize fats, carbohydrates and protein. Since it’s a water-soluble vitamin, the human body cannot store biotin. Thus, daily intake of biotin is necessary.

Biotin is a coenzyme of carboxylase enzymes. These enzymes are involved in the production of glucose and fatty acids and other metabolic processes.

Vitamin B7 cannot be synthesized by human cells but is produced by the bacteria in the body. It is also present in various foods. 

Biotin is often used to strengthen hair and nails. Therefore, it is called Vitamin H (H for hair).

Keep reading to find out why you need Biotin and how you can incorporate it into your diets. 

Why Do I Need Biotin?

Biotin plays several important roles in the body and is vital for many body functions. Listed below are some of its impressive benefits.

  • Healthy Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

Biotin is paramount for pregnant women supporting a new life. A recent study shows that many pregnant women suffer from mild biotin deficiency. This could lead to abnormal development of the fetus. 

Sometimes, new mothers don’t provide enough biotin in their breast milk, leading to a biotin deficiency in the babies. Thus, it is important to take additional Biotin during pregnancy for proper embryonic growth. 

  • Thicker Hair and Stronger Nails

One of the biggest benefits of Biotin is that it stimulates hair growth, making it thicker and lustrous. Research published in 2015 found that women with thinning hair experienced some reduction in shedding after taking an oral marine protein supplement containing Biotin (MPS) for 90 days.

Biotin is also known for its ability to strengthen nails. A study published in 1989 found that among 45 patients who took a supplement of 2.5 mg a day, 91% had “firmer and harder fingernails” after 5 months.

  • Boosting Skin Health

People with biotin deficiency experience skin problems like dry skin and red, scaly rashes. Problems like acne and psoriasis can also arise. The vitamin’s effect on the skin stems from its effect on fat metabolism. People believe that Biotin may help improve psoriasis.

  • Breaking Down Macronutrients

Biotin helps the body convert food into energy and supports several enzymes involved in breaking down fats, carbs and proteins. These enzymes are involved in 

  1. synthesizing, or creating fatty acids
  2. synthesizing the amino acids isoleucine and valine
  3. gluconeogenesis or generating glucose 

Where Can I Find Biotin?

Biotin exists in a wide variety of foods, which explains why biotin deficiency is rare in humans. Foods that are high in Biotin include: 

  • organ meats, such as liver and kidney
  • yeast
  • egg yolks
  • cheese
  • legumes, such as soybeans and peanuts
  • leafy greens
  • cauliflower
  • mushrooms
  • nuts and nut butter

Besides these, gut bacteria also produce some biotin. Fruits and vegetables only contain a small amount of biotin. Not everyone can get enough biotin through these daily. Thus, taking biotin supplements is the best way to take advantage of all the benefits of biotin.

Biotin Supplements

Biotin supplements are available on their own or in a combination with other vitamins. They are also available as multivitamins. The recommended daily intake of Biotin in adults is 30mg per day. Healthcare professionals consider Biotin to be very safe.

You can find Biotin supplements in different forms such as tablets, capsules and gummies. Gummies are the better option out of the three by a long shot.

Gummy vitamins are increasingly popular and for good reason. Gummies are much more convenient to incorporate into your daily routine than tablets and capsules. Many people have trouble with swallowing pills and experience ‘pill fatigue’. Chewable Gummy Tablets are a great alternative and are much easier to take down.

Gummies also feel like you’re taking a treat rather than a medical supplement which encourages people to take them every day. They’re also easy to store. Not to forget they’re really tasty! So if you’re looking to add biotin supplements to your daily routine, chewable gummies are the way to go.

A good recommendation would be the Sunshine Bliss Chewable Gummy Tablets that contain not only biotin but also Vitamin D and Ashwagandha.

The magical properties of Ashwagandha and the powerful nutrition provided by Vitamin D with biotin. This will be the ideal multivitamin for anybody looking to lead a healthy lifestyle. 

Health problems make daily tasks more challenging. Looking after our physical health increases energy levels. And equips us with a better ability to concentrate on any tasks. Better health improves the quality of life. Introducing dietary supplements into your routine will give your health the added boost that it needs.
