To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I am very ill with severe M.E. etc etc, and for various reasons, my diet is extremely poor. I try to supplement with vitamins when I am able, but I can't seem to tolerate Vit C. It gives me really severe Acid Reflux. Have been slowly working my way through some Lipisomal vit C, which seems to be the ONLY version that doesn't cause this, but it is extremely expensive, so I have to ration them.
I then started to look into Vit C gummies, to see if I could tolerate them. Just by the way they are made, gummies contain extremely small amounts of the active ingredient, and Vit C was the same, until I discovered these ones, which contain a lot more then the average, so I thought I'd try them, whilst we are still in this pandemic.
My initial thought was that they are delicious!! My M.E. gives me a near constant sore throat, and for a few moments, they are really soothing for this. I have actually caught myself eating more than the recommended two, just because they are so nice, on my throat, plus they taste so yummy! However, they contain a massive amount of sugar.....4g per 2 gummies!! I have a very sweet tooth, but you can't help but notice how sweet and sugary these are. They are very sweet in themselves, but then they are unnecessarily covered in sugar too!! This excessive amount of sugar is why I haven't given them 5 stars. I am surprised that seemingly such a good company, would manufacture them, like this. I am still buying them, for now, but it won't be long term.
Pro: high Vit C content compared to other gummies Pro: Delicious! Pro: Less likely to cause me Acid Reflux than regular vitamin C
Con: Gummies are a very expensive way to take vitamins Con: Waaaay too much sugar! Con: Still do cause Acid Reflux sometimes, although not nearly as bad as with regular vitamin C supplements
Way too sugary!! Why do these supposed healthy vitamins need to be covered in crunchy white sugar (albeit organic, according to ingredients listed) why do we assume children will only take these supplements if they taste like a sugary sweet!! It defeats the purpose!!
First time ordering these Probiotic Gummies - really disappointed about how covered in sugar they are!!! Real shame as I won’t buy the product again because of this. Other than that it seems like a great product with natural, vegan ingredients. The sugar ruins this.
As my title suggests, these vitamin c jellies are about as good as it gets where flavour is concerned - they taste just like an orange fruit jelly. In fact they are so delicious, I would recommend putting them out of sight as otherwise you may be tempted to snack on them! The only downside really is the price is a bit steep and the fact that they came as a compulsory two pack. Potency wise these are on the low strength side, however this will suit if you have children or suffer gastro intestinal side effects from large doses.
I am happy with the product, good quality and secured well in the box. The only minus it was that again person which delivered my item left box by my front door without calling my doorbell or knocking. I only went to check when received message saying it has been delivered. I never seen that person or signed and on delivery note on Amazon is written: Parcel was handed to a receptionist. Signed by: Front Porch - this is wrong.
A few members of my family have tried these, both adults and children, especially after taking antibiotics and in general have found that these do indeed help to get the digestive system back in balance. Formulated for children but equally suited to adults who prefer gentle measures.
Worst dropper in the world!! The worst I ever bought for my daughter!!! Taste is good so I’ve been dropping it on to a teaspoon and then. But she is 9mo. Younger would not have been feasible. Nordic Natural’s have to improve on this feature!!
