Your gummy vitamins are probably missing one vital nutrient

Brand of gummy vitamin that includes iron in the long list of nutrients on the label. And having iron is so crucial; it plays an integral role in the health of your blood cells.

"Iron is an important part of hemoglobin, the part of red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to the body," Cheryl Mussatto, registered dietitian from Kansas, told The Daily Meal. "If a person's diet is lacking in iron, tissues and organs won't get the oxygen they need."

To omit such an important nutrient seems like a large oversight. But there's a reason you won't find iron in your gummy vitamins. As it turns out, there are qualities of iron that make it difficult to mold into a tasty, colorful gummy. The Daily Meal reached out to One A Day, Smarty Pants Vitamins, and Nature's Bounty to ask why iron was left out of gummy vitamin production; though none have replied, we can make some guesses about their reasons.

For one, iron doesn't tend to taste great; it doesn't blend in as well to the saccharine gummy taste as the other micro-nutrients included. This may partly explain the omission.

OK to take with milk or juice but not grapefruit juice. Grapfruit juice is too acid and cause the vitamins (or a medication) to dissolve to quickly into your bloodstream and may effectievly overdose you.
