@mossygreen On the company website, they have a 3rd variety for immunity. It too has all the active ingredients way down near the bottom of the list, but the 2nd to last ingredient is Vitamin D3 which also appears in the Nutrition Facts box as being 50mcg/2000 IU/250% RDA. That’s the same amount as in one Costco Vitamin D3 Softgel - Remember the serving size is one bag for these.
Since the other ingredients don’t have US RDA guidelines they don’t appear in the Nutrition Facts box, though it would have been nice for them to include the amount of each supplement on the label anyway. They also weaseled out of answering their own FAQ about whether the gummies are organic, saying that the active ingredients aren’t available as organic, but dodging the question with regard to the main ingredients (corn fiber, pectin, monkfruit, etc.)
Finally there’s a concern of the manufacturing process, if all these ingredients were subjected to high heat to form into gummies, they may have lost some or all of their potency. Without any regulatory oversight, independent lab testing, or even a single user review of their products, I’d approach with caution.
That said, $0.50 per bag of gummy bears isn’t unreasonable. Though the prices on their website are insane!
@ciabelle@mossygreen 50 cents per bag of gummy bears isn’t bad but re-read the nutrition facts, the majority of the ingredients are fiber. These are probably going to make your stomach hurt and cause extreme gas. Not worth it IMO.
@ciabelle@mossygreen You make some good points. Especially heat in processing. The positive neurological effects of lions mane are completely obviated by heat. I think a lot of these companies put exotic ingredients in their product to look cool but have no thoughts relating to efficacy.
The pictures and descriptions mention either FRUITY or SOUR, but I’m not seeing the option to choose which one I want. Are they all fruity? No sour? Please let me know, while I can still
Make a decision whether to buy these or not. Thank you!
@Angelbane yep. Curious what time people ordered. My order was 1:40am est. Only 40 minutes into the start of the sale. I was really hoping the sleep would be helpful. Melatonin just isn’t working well unless I then get 8 or more hours of sleep and that doesn’t happen on week nights.
