Following on from the success of the Alive! tablet range of multi-vitamins and minerals, it’s been a great pleasure for me to be at the forefront of the complex formulation process for the Alive! Soft Jell Multi-Vitamins and Minerals range – the exciting and latest addition to the brand in the UK.

As a Consultant Nutritionist, my challenge was to develop a range of multi-vitamins with meaningful levels of a broad spectrum of nutrients, but within a great-tasting Soft Jell format. The other challenge was to create a range of products that were the best in class; we wanted to create optimised formulations that provide great health benefits and could stand up against less efficacious formulations already in the market.

But why should we take a multi-vitamin?

  • Taking additional nutrients will help energy levels, encourage vitality and support optimal wellness – who wouldn’t want some of that?!
  • The body needs around 50 different nutrients on a daily basis – it’s almost impossible to achieve anywhere near that in most households, even with the best of dietary intentions
  • Stress, the scourge of modern-day living, depletes the body of many nutrients, particularly the B vitamins
  • Many prescription medicines frequently deplete the body of essential nutrients
  • Modern farming methods optimise the use of agriculture land, but exhaust it of vital nutrients, particularly trace minerals, such as selenium
  • The typical Western diet is high in sugar and ‘white’ refined foods: these are low in vitamins and minerals and also deplete the body of essential nutrients

So having established why we need to take a multi-vitamin, why try Alive! Soft Jells?

Womens Energy_wgummiesEach Alive! Soft Jell formulation contains optimised levels of the most important vitamins and minerals. With this unique Soft Jell format, taste is absolutely key, as is the mouth texture – in other words how it feels when you chew it. Immune_wgummiesOn both counts I really feel like we have achieved top marks: we have created delicious orange and berry natural fruit flavours and by using a pectin-based formulation we’ve achieved a great melt-in-the-mouth feel.

Womens 50_wgummiesPlus the Soft Jell format is a completely vegetarian formulation – it is free from gelatine.

So, with perfectly balanced nutritional solutions for all the family, what’s special about each specific product in the Soft Jell range?

Mens_wgummiesThe Alive! brand is all about ‘feeling alive!’ and represents vitality, inspiration and healthy living. We encourage everyone to eat a rainbow diet which includes as many fruits and vegetables as possible but we also advocate topping up the daily diet with Alive! Childrens_wgummiesEach Soft Jell contains our unique dried blend of 26 fruits and vegetables – something no other range can boast.
