Many of us don't get enough vitamin D from sun exposure, and would benefit from a supplement like Mary Ruth's Vitamin D gummies, Sara Chatfield, RDN, a registered dietitian nutritionist working with HealthCanal, tells Best Life.

"One gummy provides 1,000 international units (IU) of cholecalciferol, the preferred form for raising blood levels of vitamin D," Chatfield explains, citing a 2021 study published in the Nutrients journal. "They're also third-party tested and don't contain artificial colors or flavors."
