We all know the importance of getting the right nutrients in our diet, but sometimes life makes that a little more difficult. Between school, work, socializing and extracurriculars, most families are constantly on the go, and it can be difficult to consistently get all the nutrients we need from food alone. Taking daily supplements, alongside a balanced and varied diet, is an easy way to help your body get all the nutrients it needs.

If you want to avoid chemicals, preservatives, synthetic sweeteners and added sugars, Llama Naturals is a great option. The brand offers a small but mighty range of multivitamins, Vitamin D and immunity-boosting gummies, all available in both adult and child versions. But the best part? All colors and flavors in Llama Naturals products come from natural sources, with none of the chemical additives found in many gummy supplements. They’re non-GMO, vegan and are made from real fruits and vegetables. Plus, you can get 20% off any order using the code KIDADL20.

Llama Naturals offers products in both adult and child versions.

In fact, Llama Naturals proudly shares that the vitamins in the kids’ multivitamin gummy are taken from over 9 lbs of fruit and vegetables, rising to 14 lbs in the adult gummies. They’re taken from a blend of fruits and vegetables, including superfoods like spinach, and sunflower seeds, along with broccoli, carrots, sweet potatoes, shiitake mushrooms, oranges, apples and strawberries. The gummies are slow-cooked on a low heat, which helps retain both flavor and nutrients and maximizes any benefits.

Why take multivitamins?

There are 13 essential vitamins that humans need to fuel their bodies effectively. Of these, only a few are naturally produced by the body, and of these few, the amount that our bodies actually produce is much lower than what we really need. The 13 essential vitamins are Vitamins A, C, D, E, and K, along with the different forms of Vitamin B; B6, B12, biotin, folate, niacin, pantothenic acid, riboflavin and thiamine. Together, these nutrients work together to help keep your body working as it should.

Every bite of a Llama Naturals multivitamin gummy is packed with the 13 essential natural vitamins from fruits and vegetables, along with phytonutrients, which are natural compounds found in fruit and veggies.

Llama Naturals gummies are plant-based.

So, are Llama Naturals gummies any good?

While some supplements exist as tablets or capsules, a gummy texture makes it easier for kids to chew and then swallow. However, while some non-vegan supplements use gelatin from pigs or cows to create this chewy texture, Llama Naturals gummies are entirely plant-based and cruelty free, with no animals harmed at any point in the production process. Whether you don’t eat meat or animal products for ethical, religious or environmental reasons, Llama Naturals is proudly vegan.

Making informed choices for health supplements was certainly the case for Kate, whose household is vegan and vegetarian.

‘We already all take supplements daily, so we are a vitamin-taking family,’ says Kate. ‘I was aware that Llama Naturals were cruelty-free and plant based but not that they were organic too. These are quite important factors to me when choosing products so would definitely be part of the appeal for me and my family.’ Kate tested the strawberry multivitamin while her two children tested the elderflower immunity booster gummies.

She continues, ‘The taste is really natural and there’s no added sugar in them, so you can actually taste the sharpness of the fruit, which I liked. There’s no artificial sweetener, which I hate the flavor of, so that’s definitely a positive.’

Meanwhile, Rebecca (pictured with her family below) says she has tested many vitamins and gummies over the years but none have stuck. When the opportunity came to try Llama Naturals she was intrigued by the fact they are all-natural.

Llama Naturals gummies were a huge hit with Rebecca’s whole family.

‘What you see is what you get; the ingredients are very simple which is always a good sign.’ 

She thinks it’s important to expose children to sustainable and cruelty-free products too, wherever possible, and Llama Naturals ticks those boxes. Rebecca goes on to explain that she was hoping to find a new regular vitamin to take that she was happy to continue to buy and give to her children without feeling guilty. Her family tested the Vitamin D3 gummies and they were a roaring success.

‘The kids loved Llama Naturals. Some shop-bought gummies taste bad and I struggle to find the right one as I feel guilty I’m buying too much sugar in a healthy vitamin.’

There may be no added sugar, but Llama Naturals gummies are perfectly, naturally sweetened with fruit, and packed with flavor.  

All Llama Natural gummies are free of soy, egg, peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, shellfish and wheat. With no animal products or added synthetic nasties, the ingredient list is simple and easy to understand, and the gummies are suitable for a much wider range of people.

What’s the verdict?

Of course, when it comes to getting kids to regularly take their vitamins, there’s one major factor at play: do they actually taste good? Luckily, the testimonials speak for themselves.

Before testing Llama Naturals products, Kidadler Lauren’s family didn’t take vitamins regularly, usually taking them on and off, so she was intrigued to see if they would be a good fit for her household. She trialled the strawberry multivitamin and noticed it was a slightly different texture to other gummies she’d tried before, so wasn’t sure if her two sons aged eight and four would enjoy their Vitamin D3 gummies too.

There was an unexpected consequence of taking Llama Naturals gummies

‘Luckily they did like the taste,’ she says, ‘They’re not as squidgy as some vitamins, but they liked them  — which is lucky really as I’d have struggled to get them to try them otherwise!’

Along with the great taste, Lauren is happy with this new addition to her family’s daily habits. ‘It’s been quite enjoyable starting a new routine. It’s also nice that they’re gummy; more fun to take than tablets, even for adults.’

There was an unexpected consequence of taking Llama Naturals gummies for Lauren too. ‘Sounds strange but it has encouraged me to eat better’, she explains, ‘If I’m bothering to take these vitamins then I may as well watch my diet.’ She goes on to say, ‘I feel like I’d like to finish the whole pack and see if I feel the full benefits.’

We all want to give our families the best, and with Llama Naturals offering products in both child and adult versions, you can feel safe in the knowledge that the whole family is getting the nutrients they need from a reliable source.

‘I’m always on the lookout for kids’ vitamins that are palatable but not full-on sugar,’ says mom-of-two Alice. ‘Considering that they are gummies, I thought they were quite light, not sticky, and they smelled good. They smell quite fruity and not too vitamin-y.’ 

‘They’re a decent size and they are not too chewy either. The kids were happy with them.’

Alice adds that for nine-year-old Holly, taking Llama Naturals gummies has become a part of her daily routine and is sure Llama Naturals is going to be a new household staple: ‘We will continue to use them, because the kids like them and there’s no processed sugar.’

Doing good for the planet

Finally, not only are Llama Naturals products packed with real-food goodness in every bite, they’re also trying to do their bit for the environment and are Plastic Negative Certified by rePurpose Global. This means that Llama Naturals removes twice the amount of plastic from the environment as it creates, sending it off to be recycled rather than sent straight to landfill. These sustainability initiatives are just one of the many reasons people love Llama Naturals.

With their great taste, natural ingredients and focus on environmental impact, it’s no wonder that Llama Naturals won ‘Best Multivitamin’ and ‘Best Digestive Supplement’ in the NEXTY SupplySide Awards.

So if you’re looking to try some new vitamins, why not give Llama Naturals a go.
