Chewable Vitamins, Sugar

Answered on August 19, 2014

Been a while since I've posted on here...

But, I have a preference for (certain) chewable vit's (no! not the gummies - ew!). Just curious if there's an issue due to the amt sugar that's in many of the varieties. (I noticed approx. 1 g of sugar per Vit C tab - which got me curious.)

I don't eat much in the way of sugar (except my dark choco chips as a treat once a week or so)... but was curious about what folks thought, if the amt of sugar in the chewables is negligible (even if I'm dipping into as many as 3-5 vit c tabs/daily + other chewables) or if it could have a significant impact. (Note: increase in vit c due to adrenal dysfunction, hence the high level. shooshit!)

Just a random thought that spurred my curiosity.
Hope it doesn't sound like a dumb question.

tks

pretty sure there is Xylitol sweetened chewables - which would be GOOD for your teeth. Think I saw on Emerson Ecoglocics. I will look later or you can.

Why has no one invented fortified bacon?

SuzQ I can tell you that I did have an issue with Chew-able Vit C several years ago and issues with my teeth.

The combo of the sugar and citric acid caused me to have several breakdowns in enamel, a few new cavities and mostly notably some recurrent decay around two fillings. This was unusual and the dentist felt like my Chew-able C habit (at the time I thought it was great - eat candy with your vitamin C!) was most definitely the cause.

If you need Vit C I think there are better, safer ways to take it!

Take Care
