As someone works out about 1-2 times a day and has a serious (and I do mean SERIOUS) sweet-tooth, I honestly cannot describe how happy I am to have discovered Wicked Gummy Co. As well as being lactose-intolerant, I have a lot of food based allergies that doesn’t allow me incorporate supplements, vitamins and whey powders into my meal plan. I’m not going to act like I haven’t tried a few – I promise you I have,  I just hated the way they tasted.

It started to feel like I was continuously wasting my hard earned cash trying to fill a hole that didn’t accommodate what my body actually needed, so when Wicked Gummy Co reached out to me to review their range, I pounced on the opportunity.

While I can admit that even though I get the biggest adrenaline rush from going to a spin class or the gym – exercising can be exhausting! You are continuously pushing yourself to get stronger, to beat your personal best and to do that effectively you need to pay attention to your diet ESPECIALLY how much nutrients your body is absorbing – and this is where gummies from the Wicked Gummy Co. comes to play

“Let’s talk gummy science”

Wicked Gummy Co. are supply a range of vitamins in a chewable, vegan friendly, gummies form that actually tastes really great.

The team at Wicked Gummy Co. were nice enough to send me the entire range:-

  • Wicked Gummy Co. Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies
  • Wicked Gummy Co. Peaceful ZZZZZ Gummies

to try out and while I did try a bit of everything over the last 6-8 weeks or so, I wanted to touch on the flavours that I felt made a noticeable difference in my lifestyle.

Wicked Gummy Co. Peaceful ZZZZZ Gummies

I don’t usually have an issue with sleeping.

I am the kind of person who can tap out within 5 minutes of getting into bed – I like to think that’s my superpower – but I find that stress and hormones can unintentionally disrupt my sleep. The Wicked Gummy Co. Peaceful ZZZZZ Gummies – £23.99 via Wicked Gummy Co. – contains Passiflora, 5-Hydroxytryptophan (amino acid) and valerian root that help to aid peaceful sleep.

The way this passionfruit flavoured vitamin works is by giving you a boost of 5-HP which your body absorbs and turns into serotonin. Setotonin is a chemical messenger that sends signals between your nerve cells which helps to balance your mood and aids with sleep. I personally think is a very smart, well-being chemical because according to Medical News Today, serotonin can fight against depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, weight gain and other health problems.

I personally have only used this on the weeks of my menstrual cycle – immediately after the gym and an hour before sleeping – and I slept amazingly well! I did have a very intense dream where I was a Pirate Captain but lucid dreams aside, I can definitely see myself finishing the entire bottle before the end of the year.

 

Wicked Gummy Co. MultiVitamin Gummies

Is it weird to say that the Wicked Gummy Co. MultiVitamin Gummies – £14.99 via Wicked Gummy Co. – lives in my car? Someone told me that the best time to take a multi-vitamin was first thing in the morning. While this might or might not be true, it is still a rule I try to live by and the only way I could do that is by popping 2 WGC. multivitamin gummies into my mouth as I get into my car to drive to the station every morning.

These lemon flavoured gummies contain a vitamin blend of A, B6, C, D & E, as well as Niacin and Selenium. WGC claims that by taking 2 gummies a day, you can reduce tiredness, improve your immunity and enjoy stronger vision and bones! I cAN’T CO-SGIN

 

Wicked Gummy Co. Vitamin D Sunshine Gummies

I love oranges and citrus fruits so I’m not ashamed to admit that the WGC Vitamin D Gummies has been my favourite flavour in the entire range. Vitamin D helps to strengthen teeth, bones and muscle and you get 30 days worth of Gummies which account to 1000% of your recommended daily allowance of vitamin D – and it tastes gooooood.

As it was very important to me to find ways to easily incorporate these gummies into my diet vs. planning my life around them, I found myself plopping these vitamins into my gym bag as I found that popping 2 Wicked Gummy Co. Vitamin D Sunshine Gummies – £19.99 via Wicked Gummy Co. – after my weekly spin class really worked best for my eating habits and how my body absorbed nutrients. I found that the chunky consistency of these vitamins stopped me craving a cheeky snickers bar while waiting for my train home which is HUGE for me

Even though I have had a great time reviewing the WGC. Gummy range, I feel think that it is important to mention hat relying on Wicked Gummy Co. alone is not concise to fuelling your body post-workout.

As these vitamins come in a glucose form, you still need to pair these with a quality protein snack to make sure that your body is getting everything it needs and you should look to eat this immediately after your workout or some form of exercise so that your  body really use up the glucose in these gummies immediately and doesn’t get store it as fat.
