Ah the ubiquitous Kardashians. Why is it that you can't scroll through Instagram without coming across one of their nasally-voiced clips of their God-awful reality show and even after I click, 'See Fewer Posts Like This' why am I still seeing these posts Instagram?!?! WHY? OK calm down.
If like me, you've googled 'Which Hair Vitamins Do The Kardashians Use?' then it's likely you've noticing more hairs on the pillow or in the bath tub, or you may just want healthier, stronger hair that won't break.
Today's blog asks Which Hair Vitamins Do The Kardashians Use?
Sugar Bear Hair are a wildly popular brand from The US. These sweet gummy supplements are suitable for Vegetarians (although not Vegans)
Let's face facts. Gummy hair vitamins are packed with sugar. The recommended daily intake of sugar for a 2,000 calorie diet is about 25 grams. This equates to a ¾ teaspoon of sugar each time you take your vitamins! In two small gummy vitamins, you get about 12 percent of your daily intake of sugar, plus about one percent of your daily carbohydrate allotment.
So with all that sugar, comes all the nasty effects of it. Dr. Maryann Griffith, a Michigan Dentist with over 30 years of experience states,
“I’m not a fan of gummy vitamins because they are candy in its worst form: sticky and sweet. The stickiness holds the sugar onto the teeth where they slowly dissolve. Bacterial plaque then eats the sugar and releases cavity-making acid onto the teeth.”
analyzed best-selling adult gummy multivitamins and found that normal tablet multivitamins contained 80% vitamin content and 271% more mineral content compared to equivalent gummy vitamins. Damn.
So on top of a whole load of sugar, gummy vitamins don't actually contain many minerals and nutrients.
The boffins at Labdoor also highlight that the appearance and sweet taste of gummy vitamins may actually 'increase the risk of accidental overdose'. Eating too many gummy vitamins can result in at best uncomfortable and at worst, dangers side effects including stomach ache, constipation and diarrhea from excess iron, blood thinning or clotting from vitamins E and K, skin flushing from B3, and nerve damage from B6. Woah.
As well as these dangers, Sugar Bear Hair, don't appear to offer a full money back guarantee if you don't love your results, or if anything goes wrong.
It Really Works Vitamins are so confident that you'll be happy with your healthier, thicker hair, that we'll refund you if you're not.
Now that's confidence.
