( — April 7, 2021) Orlando, FL — The need to use vitamins and minerals continues to be important, especially in these times of global health crisis. These nutrients are vital in maintaining and protecting the immune system.

There are many ways to obtain the healing goodness of vitamins, such as consuming the right food and taking supplements. However, it appears that they can also be effectively obtained through chewing gum.

The Penn State researchers carried out a study to find out whether two vitamin-supplemented products were useful in delivering vitamins to the body. 

The study findings suggest that chewing gum is effective as a delivery system for some vitamins. It is worth noting that 15 percent of all chewing gum varieties available nowadays promise to provide health-enhancing supplements to users.

According to Joshua Lambert, the research marks the first time that researchers closely scrutinized vitamin delivery from chewing gum.

Lambert is professor of food science in the College of Agricultural Sciences.

He adds that chewing gum — a pleasant habit for many — could be a strategy to help reduce vitamin deficiency around the world, a problem described as an epidemic.

In the United States, nearly one in 10 individuals over the age of 1 is found deficient in vitamins B6 and C. 

This is according to the recent analysis of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.

“I was slightly surprised that no one had done a study like this before given the number of supplement-containing gum products on the market,” Lambert said. 

“But there is no requirement that nutritional gums be tested for efficacy, since they fall into the category of dietary supplements,” he adds. 

This study involved 15 individuals chewing on two off-the-shelf supplemented gums. The investigators measured the levels of eight vitamins released into their saliva.

The findings of this interesting research were published in the Journal of Functional Foods.

More and more research studies are being carried out to look into the effects of B vitamins on various aspects of health. Vitamin B6 is undeniably linked with a myriad of health benefits. 

Aside from chewing gum, these nutrients may also be effectively obtained through the use of formulas like Divine Bounty B Vitamin Complex.

It contains Choline, Pantothenic acid, Biotin, Vitamin B12, Folic Acid, Niacin, Riboflavin, Thiamin, and vitamin B6.

Divine Bounty B Vitamin Complex is loaded with these nutrients. It is accurately labeled and free from nasty ingredients and contaminants. Divine Bounty ensures that it provides the best value of the hard earned money of consumers.

What makes it all the more beneficial is that it even comes with a customer satisfaction guarantee.
