Of course, when we were looking for the best vegan gummies, then you cannot get past all the vitamin and probiotic gummy bears. The fact that there is candy in the form of cubilicious bears that tastes amazing and at the same time is a health supplement gives me better hope for the future of the world. If you or your kids have a hard time taking pills, then gummies can be a perfect substitute.
What are Probiotics?
Probiotics are live friendly bacteria that aid your health and digestion and are in the form of dietary supplements or food. Probiotics can help with an unsettling stomach and against bloating.
What are Prebiotics?
Prebiotics are usually plant fibers which help with digestion. The main difference from probiotics is that they are not live bacteria. But they play a role in the same mission. Prebiotics can prepare the arena for probiotics to thrive on by providing essential food for the good bacteria.
Best Vegan Probiotic Gummies
1. Yuve Sugar-Free Probiotic Gummies
The bacteria used in this one is Bacillus Coagulans. It is known for various health benefits such as:
- Specifically mentioned to improving the vaginal flora.
- Relieves abdominal pain and bloating in irritable bowel syndrome patients.
- Increased immune response to viral changes.
- Preventing recurrence of clostridium difficile associated diarrhea.
Yuve is an awesome vegan company – they’re all about sustainability and their whole product line will always be plant-based. These gummies taste great even without any additional sugar and are specifically good for women as they promote healthy women’s flora and skin. Also suitable for men ofcourse. Comes in strawberry and orange flavors.
2. BeLive Probiotic Gummies – Digestive Health
BeLive also uses the same type of bacteria Bacillus Coagulans as Yuve.
I have to say good packaging is what caught my eye on these initially. They are not gummy bears but gummies. So no cubilicous cubs in this one. Would say these are the best, as they are not overly sweet, and taste like actual fruit! They also work very well against bloating if used daily.
3. BeLive Prebiotic Fiber Gummies
The prebiotic here is Chicory Root & Inulin which are highly effective chewy fibers having benefits such as:
- Improve digestive function.
- Control blood sugar level.
- Lower cholesterol levels.
- Lower constipation.
- Helps in achieving a healthy weight.
Also from BeLive – these fiber gummies are best combined with probiotics to get the most out of good bacteria. One benefit of getting your digestion in order is that your waist size might decrease quite a lot! Use regularly before judging these as it takes time for the bacteria to do their job and reach harmony.
4. UP4 Probiotic + Prebiotic Gummies
UP4 uses a combination of Bacillus Coagulans and Bacillus Subtillis. Some benefits of Bacillus Subtillis are:
- Helps balance the gut.
- Resists harmful organisms by affecting their ability to colonize.
- Supports beneficial enzyme production in the gut including amylase, protease, pullulanase, chitinase, xylanase, and lipase.
This is a simple all in one solution containing both probiotics and a prebiotic. The prebiotic in this one is inulin which is sourced from chicory root. Also includes an additional vitamin C boost. The gummy consistency is achieved by using pectin. The only problem is that they are so tasty it makes you want to grab more than the daily recommended amount.
5. Havasu Premium Elderberry Gummies
This is not really a probiotic neither a prebiotic. But it’s a good gummy addition to take in addition for an improved immune system. These gummies have even more antioxidant power than a fresh whole orange. The main powerhouse here is the superfood Elderberry and added Zinc. You can take them throughout the year, every day.
6. Goli Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies
This is probably one of the most innovative supplements created in a while. Apple cider vinegar is great for gut health and and an excellent antioxidant to boost your immune system. Contains vitamins B12, B9 and a tasty combo of real beetroot, pomegranate and apples. (raw vinegar is not the tastiest!)
