Are your products safe to take for those with allergies?

I purchased a product and the outer seal is intact, but the inner seal is loose. Are they still safe?
The product is safe if the outer seal of the product has not been tampered with. The inner seal may become loose in some cases due to moisture; however this does not affect the product.

I left my gummy vitamins in my car and they melted. Are they still safe to eat?
Your gummy vitamins are still safe to ingest, however we recommend storing your gummy vitamins in a reasonably cool place (60 - 80F degrees) as subjecting them to high temperatures may cause water-soluble vitamins, such as vitamins B and C among others, to dissipate.

Can I give Yummi Bears® to my child if he/she is under four years of age?
We recommend your child be at least two years old, however Yummi Bears® are safe for children of any age who can safely chew and swallow.

How many Yummi Bears® do I give my children if one is 45 pounds and the other is 75 pounds?
Servings per product vary, and their daily dosage is based on their age, not weight. The serving size recommendations for each product should be followed.

In your Yummi Bear® products that are vegetarian, what is the source of the pectin?
Yummi Bears® Vegetarian formulas are made with pectin from fruit and are Vegetarian Approved. They do not contain any gelatin products.

Is there any mercury in Yummi Bears® DHA?
As with any fish product, there is a chance that any supplement contains mercury. Our DHA product is specifically tested for this and no mercury has ever been traced.

Your Yummi Bears® Multi-Vitamin and Mineral has vitamin C. Is it okay to take it with Wholefoods, Vitamin C, and/or Echinacea, which all contain vitamin C as well?
Yes, these products are designed to be taken together. Vitamin C is water soluble, so if you take the recommended dosage of each product, your child will be within the normal range of vitamin C intake.

Can I give my child the Yummi Bears® Wholefoods and the Yummi Bears® Multi-Vitamin and Mineral at the same time?
Yes, your child can take both the Yummi Bears® Multi Vitamin and Mineral and the Wholefood together on a daily basis. However, to avoid surpassing the daily recommended value of vitamin A, we do suggest giving your child only two of one variety and three of the other. A majority of our customers switch off daily between the two varieties.

How does Echinacea work? Why can my child only take Echinacea for ten days?
Echinacea is the best known and researched herb for stimulating the immune system. It should be used at the onset of cold/virus symptoms for best results and for seven to ten days only as Echinacea becomes inactive in the body if used on a regular basis. For prolonged use of this product, we recommend ten days on and ten days off.

My child ate more than the daily serving of Yummi Bears®. Do I need to take him/her to the doctor?
Parents call about their child consuming more than the daily dosage and generally, the only problem will be a little tummy ache depending on how much is consumed. If you have any serious concerns, please check with your health care professional.

I love Yummi Bears® for myself. Do you have anything for adults?
Yes we do! Our Slice of Life® are Gummy Vitamins for Adults specifically formulated for adult's nutritional needs. They allow fast absorption of minerals, and are allergen and gluten free. Try one of our many varieties including Multi plus Minerals, Vitamin C plus Pomegranate, Omega-3, Vitamin D3, Diabetic Health Complete Multi+ and Energy plus B-12.

Can my child take Slice of Life®?
Children can take Slice of Life®. However we do recommend Yummi Bears® because they are specifically formulated to match the health needs of your child.
