Gummies vs. capsules: which supplements are best for you?

So, you’ve decided to give your body some extra love. That’s a great idea! Some vitamins for luscious hair, probiotics for a happy gut, and maybe minerals to give your immune system a healthy boost... 

Here comes the ultimate choice: gummies or capsules? Tough decision, right? 

Gummies or capsules?

We totally get the dilemma! You want what’s best for your body and what will fit better into your routine. Whether you choose traditional capsules or tasty gummies, know that you’re choosing an effective way to keep your body nourished. 

Let’s explore the strengths of each to help you figure out which supplement form suits your needs and preferences better, so you can stay on top of your well-being much easier. 

Capsules – the nutrient guardians 

Capsules provide a powerful dose of nutrients to nourish your body, and it’s all because of their shells. 

The capsule shells are mostly made of hypromellose. This is a fancy word for a plant-based material. These shells allow the supplements inside to be without additives as the shell holds all the good stuff together (unlike tablets). 

This way, the nutrients inside can be in powder or liquid form – it all depends on the ingredients. The main goal is that all the good stuff remains potent and effective until it’s time to unleash its power within your body. 

This is super important for gut-friendly bacteria, known as probiotics, which are especially sensitive to the outside environment. The capsule shell acts as a shield, so they survive their journey to the gut, where they can do their thing.  

The nutrients are then absorbed by your body, making their way to where they’re needed the most. Depending on the nutrient, you might need to take one, two, or even three capsules a day to meet your daily requirements. On the upside, you’ll probably drink way more water daily, and who doesn’t want hydrated skin? 

Because of their shape and smooth surface, capsules are easy to swallow, plus they don’t have that yucky taste that many tablets have when they start melting in your mouth. 

Gummies – the tasty treats packed with goodness 

Gummies will surely make you look forward to taking vitamins every day. 

Made from gelatine or pectin (the vegan-friendly option), gummies are jelly-like candies packed with vitamins and minerals. Some may contain added sugar, but we’re definitely bigger fans of the gummies with natural fruit flavours. 

But these chewy and flavourful delights are more than just a treat for your taste buds. As soon as they hit your mouth, they start to dissolve, releasing all the nutrients. 

And it turns out some vitamins work much better like this! They’re absorbed faster and are way easier to digest than capsules. 

Gummies are so easy to add to your daily routine because they honestly don’t even feel like you’re taking a supplement. Who’d forget to eat candy after a meal?? 

If you cringe at the mere thought of swallowing gigantic pills, gummies are an indulging alternative! All you have to do is chew them; no water is needed. This means you can take them anywhere and eat them anytime. And you’ll kind of want to; they’re delicious.
