Why You Should Take 4 to 6 SmartyPants Vitamins a Day
Why So Many?
Pick up your standard multivitamin bottle. Turn it over and read the label. You probably don’t see Omega 3 in that supplement, and you may not find enough Vitamin D.
Omega 3 in fish oil has many benefits for heart health, from reducing hunger and inflammation, to controlling cravings, managing insulin, boosting the immune system and enhancing brain health. Longer-chain fatty acids like EPA and DHA are forms of Omega 3s that can be readily used by the body. It’s the concentration of Omega 3 EPA and DHA in the fish oil, not the amount of fish oil, that matters. Omega 3 oils contain these large molecules. EPA has 20 carbon atoms, and DHA has 22. In terms of their chemical make-up, they hold many double bonds (5 for EPA and 6 for DHA). This makes them long, strong, and bulky, hence the need to take a hearty SmartyPants dose each day.
Compare the suggested daily dose of SmartyPants (six for adults, four for kids) with your standard multivitamin. You will find similar doses of Vitamins A, C, E and B as you see in other brands. Four to six SmartyPants gummy vitamins supply or exceed the recommended daily allowance for most vitamins and minerals. Recommended daily allowances of vitamins come from outdated standards created in 1968, and many people need more than the recommended daily allowance of some nutrients, like Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D. Four to six SmartyPants gummies offer more than enough Vitamin D and Vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 helps us form red blood cells and helps our nervous system run well. Only animal products contain Vitamin B12, and our ability to absorb B12 from foods declines with age. That makes taking a supplement containing larger amounts crucial for vegetarians and for older adults.
The increased use of sunscreen reduces our Vitamin D levels, as does decreased sunlight in winter months in many parts of the world. We also absorb less Vitamin D as we age. SmartyPants gummy vitamins house the most bioavaillable form of Vitamin D, D3. Vitamin D is important for calcium absorption and bone growth, and it is not widely available in our diet, so we need to get it from fortified foods, sunlight and supplements. Most people don’t get enough Vitamin D from food.
Taking a multivitamin, fish oil and vitamin D separately would not only require taking three separate supplements each day, with several pills per supplement, but you may also have to mortgage your home to pay for it!
While you might not mind the great taste of SmartyPants (yes, even with fish oil!), less is still better when it comes to sugar. And the type of sugar does matter. SmartyPants uses only organic cane sugar and not high fructose corn syrup. High fructose corn syrup has been linked to brain trouble, insulin resistance, obesity, diabetes, kidney disease, high blood pressure and higher amounts of belly fat, which are related to heart disease. Organic sugar, used in SmartyPants gummy vitamins, is less processed, has fewer chemicals and preservatives, and has a lower glycemic index than high fructose corn syrup.
SmartyPants gummy vitamins hold GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) certification status and they are tested for purity by an independent lab. You won’t find gluten and casein, substances that often cause allergies, in SmartyPants. You won’t find fake dyes, sweeteners or flavors. The fish oil in SmartyPants gummies comes from small fish, not salmon or tuna that can contain unhealthy levels of mercury. Additionally, SmartyPants gummy vitamins comply with strict FDA standards.
All of that–multiple vitamins, fish oil and Vitamin D–in each great gumdrop–and no nose-holding to down them! Relishing gummies sure beats swallowing chalky pills. Instead, try two or three cherry, orange or lemon gummies after lunch, and two or three after dinner for a unique and healthy dessert.
