In this article, we are going to completely and thoroughly review the Vitafusion Women’s Gummy Vitamins also called Vitafusion Women’s Multivitamin.

Thus, this Vitafusion Women’s Gummy Vitamins review is for anyone, who is looking for in-depth information on what it actually is and what it has to offer. So, we will be taking a look at everything that is important enough for you to consider in regards to this supplement.

In fact, if I for some reason I have not covered a section you would like to get information on, let me know in the comments and I will add a relevant section to the article. Or just give my opinion on the matter in the comments, depends on the scale.

Either way, I plan on covering it all, so you wouldn’t have to jump from a review to a review in looking for additional information.


Vitafusion Women’s Gummy Vitamins – Overview

Vitafusion Women's Multivitamin ReviewBased on the description given at the Vitafusion Women’s Gummy Vitamins (Women’s Multivitamin) sale’s page, it seems like the absolute no-brainer.

It is there said that the supplement provides “a complete multivitamin formula that has been specially formulated to support the specific health needs of women”.[1]

Which at least for me leads to believe that it’s the complete multivitamin. Meaning, having this will make it so that I have If I were a woman) all my nutritional needs covered and don’t have to worry about anything.

For me, it sounds like THE solution. Which is only further acknowledged and confirmed by the given following statements on their website. “A fusion of essential vitamins, minerals, and natural fruit flavors, these great-tasting gummies provide a convenient alternative to hard-to-swallow pills.”[2]

So, not only is the supplement everything you need nutritionally, but it’s also the awesome tasting option for your vitamins. Namely, it’s the way, way better option of the otherwise hard-to-swallow pills that are the alternative if you were to choose a conventional vitamin supplement.

Although for some this may seal the deal, I would encourage you to always look past the claims that the manufacturer provides. The same also applies to this case.

Supplement Isn’t As Nutritious As We’re Led To Believe

So, as we just saw, it claims to be the complete multivitamin for women. When we actually look at the ingredients and compare that to the Prime Daily Values (PDVs), a fascinatingly different picture emerges.

The Vitafusion Women's Multivitamin Is Very Scarce in Terms of the Amounts That It ProvidesFrom all that the Vitafusion Women’s Gummy Vitamins offers only Biotin (Vitamin B7) and vitamin D falls within the amounts recommended by PDVs.

And even Biotin does so barely being in correspondence with the very lowest margin of the guidelines.

All of the rest on the most part aren’t even covering the minimal daily requirements also known by the percentage Daily Values. You can find out more in regards to this in the article on the PDVs by clicking here.

The Supplement offers limited amounts of vitamin A (preformed form), C, E, B3, B5, B6, B9, B12, Calcium, Iodine, Zinc, Chromium, Boron, Inositol, and, of course, the already mentioned vitamin B7 and D. It may create the illusion of there being a lot of what it does have.

What if I told you that while having all of these (still in insufficient amounts!) it does not offer any vitamin B1, B2, K, Choline, Magnesium, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Molybdenum, Vanadium, Iron, Tocopherols, Tocotrienols, and Carotenoids, all of which you need for your best health by the way? Would it still seem like a lot that it does have?

To be very raw and honest the supplement lacks about half the nutrients that you need to acquire daily through supplementation for the best health possible. And in having only half of that, it certainly does not live up to the claim of being the complete multivitamin.

How Insufficient Are Those Nutrients? Extremely!

Okay, so we’ve been talking about insufficient amounts in regards to the nutrients that the Vitafusion Women’s Multivitamin does have. How insufficient exactly are they? Maybe it’s not that bad?

How Insufficient Are Those Nutrients – ExtremelySo, let’s look at some examples, shall we?

For example, in the supplement, you’ll find 30 mg of vitamin C. Whereas what you need daily according to PDVs is 500-1000 mg. What you’ll find in the supplement is 2 mg of vitamin B6. Whereas what you need daily is 25-50 mg.

Again, what you’ll find in the supplement is 7.2 mcg of vitamin B12 – but you need 500-1000 mcg.

And I could go on and on, and on about this. It’s in no way a little bit insufficient in terms of nutrients. It’s insufficient by A LOT.

And ridiculously low amounts is not exactly what we are after as that pretty much at least to some degree only guarantees that you might not get sick with a deficiency disease.

But were after the optimal, best kind of health, right? Just avoiding disease is not our end-goal.

A Tasty Alternative? But At What Cost?

Another thing that the sale’s page speaks of is about Vitafusion Women’s Gummy Vitamins being the tasty alternative of supplementation over its competitors.

And while this definitely is true, it brings along with it a variety of undesired things.

What I mean is if the vitamins are tasty, it practically begs the question ‘why’. What ingredients does it have that ensure that tastiness? It’s certainly not what they would put on the sale’s page. And it’s something you can probably guess.

It’s both Sugar and Glucose Syrup.

Glucose Syrup With All Its Devastating Effects Is The CostSo, let me tell you a few things about these two substances and why you don’t want them in any supplements.

Well, Glucose syrup is the same thing that the High Fructose Corn Syrup is, it only goes by a different name. A different name invented and made use of to hide this devastating and health-ruining substance (the full list of the alternative names you can view in this article).[3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8]

If by chance you haven’t heard of the devastation that the High Fructose Corn Syrup brings, here are some of the adverse effects among many others – weight gain, liver damage, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, leaky gut, and, of course, cancer promotion. For more information, check out the references for this paragraph.[9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19]

It’s worth noting that the devastating substance is also sweeter than sugar. It makes the sugar pale in how much sweeter it is. Therefore, of course, that the Vitafusion Women’s Gummy Vitamins is a ‘tasty’ alternative. A tasty potentially weight gain-promoting, obesity-, diabetes-, cancer-promoting, addiction creating alternative.[20] [21]

Vitafusion Women's Gummy Vitamins Is Full Of SugarNonetheless, there’s also the added regular sugar to the formula. It (in of itself) isn’t even close to as harmful for health as the High Fructose Corn Syrup. However, there are certain side-effects that are linked to any kind of shape or form of sugar.

Regular consumption of sugar is linked to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, aggressive behaviour, hyperactivity, eating disorders, cancer, learning difficulties and many, many more adverse effects.[22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27]

Thus, needless to say, that sugar is not really something that we’d ever want in our daily multivitamin. Or any other vitamin supplement for that matter.

All in all, I know that it’s very tempting to go for these kinds of tasty alternatives in place for the regular supplements. But please don’t. Your health and well-being are of great importance to me. And you will be much better off without them.

And besides, there are numerous easy-to-swallow tasteless alternatives out there that are all about improving your health without compromising it (for a list of those, click here).

Final Thoughts On The Vitafusion Women’s Gummy Vitamins

I mean, there’s not much to it. I would highly encourage all of you to avoid the Vitafusion Women’s Gummy Vitamins (Women’s Multivitamin).

There are no up-sides for it other than the fact that it’s tasty.

The much-needed nutrients, as well as their amounts, for your well-being, aren’t there. Plus, the trade-offs for being tasty are just too major for the supplement to even be considered as your daily multivitamin. So, best avoid it.

If by chance, you are interested in solid multivitamin supplements that are all about improving your health and well-being, definitely check out the list I’ve put together of the best multivitamin supplements.

Above all, I hope the article helped you find the information you were looking for, but if not definitely let me know in the comments how I could further improve this article.

If you have a tiny bit of time, I would highly appreciate even one line in the comments. That helps a ton and will be highly appreciated.

Hope to see you in another article!

Cheers, Stay Healthy & Have a Great One!

And Happy New Year’s! <3

    This is a vitamin supplement, specifically for women, it’s attraction is the form of a tasty gummy lozenge.

    It is shocking to learn, that the level of all the different vitamins, is so far below the daily requirements needed for good health.

    How is it, that there is no authority or regulator to prevent substandard products being sold?

    It is amazing, that something being marketed as a multivitamin, has only half of the vitamins needed for good health.

    One thing also that is strange, is that they contain glucose and sugar, which though giving a nice taste, neutralize the effect of the vitamins, and detract from building good health.

    I feel that there are many other better multivitamins around, why choose something of such low quality, just because it is easy to swallow, and tastes nice?

      Hey, Robert!

      I couldn’t agree with you more. There truly are many great multivitamins around. There is no need for anyone to go with this one.

      Supplements aren’t regulated like that. A manufacturer can make as substandard of products as they like. Thus, to avoid you luring into a decision that really isn’t in your best interest, one shouldn’t really ever trust and solely rely on supplement manufacturer claims.

      Well, think about it – have you ever seen a manufacturer that open-heartedly declares that its product is not the greatest product there is? I haven’t.
      In your own best interest (and health!!!) always seek other opinions and information. 🙂

      Cheers and have a Great One!

    My girlfriend told me that for her New Years Resolution she is going to start taking vitamins. She hates swallowing pills, which I can say I am not crazy about either. However, I did mention the other day that maybe she should get chewablables.Now, you have got me thinking maybe she should get gummy vitamins. However, I do have a question for you. Do they absorb in your body the same way that pills would?What I mean is if you take creatine, for example, taking it in pill form doesn’t get in your system as good. Meaning your body breaks it down and you don’t get the added nutrients.Maybe, I am overthinking this, but do the gummies absorb the same way?

      Hey, Garen!

      Such a great question. Thank you for asking it.
      Studies show that they do absorb. If you’re interested I can pinpoint you to the exact study. Let me know.

      Other than that, I would still not advise going with these. There are much better alternatives out there that does not involve as much (or for that matter any sugar in them).
      I totally get that you and your girlfriend do not enjoy swallowing pills. However, most of the best multivitamin supplements are very easy to get down, especially with water. I myself most of the time do not use water to help get them down.

      On that same note, do know that those kinds of multivitamins will actually contribute to her health. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same about gummy vitamins.

      Cheers and have a Great One!

    Dear Matiss,

    Thanks a lot for the very thorough and comprehensive review post.

    My wife and I expecting a baby very soon I was looking for some vitamin supplements to my wife after pregnancy to help her to improve her health. 

    Nowadays most of the products under-delivers compared to what they promise in their sales page. Genuine and unbiased reviews like this are a greater help to many people. This review post is very helpful and its going to help many people save their time, trouble, effort and money.

    After reading your review for us Vitafusion Women’s Gummy Vitamins is a NO NO.

    I found “Thorne Research Basic Nutrients IV” will be the best one for my wife after looking your recommendation. Very helpful and thanks a lot.

    Wishing you much Success!

    This is quite the explicit review of Vitafusion Women’s Multivitamin you have here. You have very kindly pointed out that the claims about a product may not be all true. If your article is anything to go by, Vitafusion Women’s Multivitamin is not what I would be going for; it is not even close to a quality product I would be looking for. Many thanks for all the information and best regards!

    Hey Matiss, 

    Thank you for letting us know how bad this product is. Me and my wife are vitamin consumers since a couple of years already since we both workout intensively (I also run). Knowing that not all vitamins have the perfect prime daily values (as shown on another of your post) is worrying and we will pay more attention from now on. Does the male’s vitamins from Vitafusion have the same balance of nutrients too? I will come back to your site in the future. Have a good one. Al

      Hey, Alvaro!

      You’re welcome, I’m glad this was of help.
      Yes, the male’s vitamins from Vitafusion pretty much has the same balance of nutrients as well. I mean they slightly vary, but in essence, it’s all the same. Truth is I will also be publishing an article on those in a few days. You can definitely check it out if that’s of interest for you, Alvaro.

      The essence and overall message of that article will be very much the same as for this one.

      Awesome to hear, means a lot!

      Cheers, Alvaro! Have an Amazing Day!

    In my opinion, women are the vast majority in any demographic so any product that is supposed to be dealing with women is by far going to take a very good chunk of the market.

    So, in my humble opinion, though the manufacturer of the supplement is not after the wellness of our woman, they are though after their purchasing Power. And that is also what they are getting by their marketing techniques with this supplement as it’s the Amazon’s bestseller at this very moment.

    Quite sad.

      Hey, Charles!

      I really can’t disagree. You’re really on point.
      Nothing to add. I can only concur that it’s sad.

      Cheers and have a Great One!
      Matiss
