Do Kids Need A Multi-Vitamin?
As parents it’s good to think of vitamins as a safety net. When our children don’t finish all their food, or life gets in the way and we can’t sustain a healthy diet over the week. It’s comforting to know they have already had their daily essentials. In the active, growing years of “cubhood” kids need certain vitamins and minerals replenished every day since our bodies don’t store everything we need naturally.
Is Tiger Gummies safe for people with allergies?
All Tiger Gummies are allergen-free! Which means NO Crustacean Shellfish, egg, fish, peanuts, milk, soybeans, tree nuts, wheat, GMO’s and gluten-free, and do not use any synthetic colors, artificial flavors, or artificial sweeteners.

What makes Tiger Gummies better than other Vitamins?
The Tiger Gummies formula is designed around strengthening the immune system, better brain health and cell regeneration. At Tiger we want to make preventive health care a priority in the US. As our Nordic executives say: “We want to bring the Icelandic Health Care Mindset to the states. By solving the problem before it even becomes a problem.” Our formula is 100% ALL-NATURAL and includes the top 20 essential nutrients our children need, while still maintaining a great sweet taste without any gluten, allergen, artificial sweeteners, colouring or preservatives. It’s made for parents by parents, to help make healthy-living easier for everyone. No forcing pills or bad tasting gummies down our kids throats. We’re a brand that’s designed around kids. We don’t have the word “Vitamin” in our brand for a reason and what kid does not want to grow strong like a TIGER!

How can I be sure your Vitamins are safe?
We created these Vitamins with our own children in mind. Our children even helped design our brand. So that’s why safety is always our number one priority for everything we do. That is why every single batch we create we only use FDA GRAS tested ingredients and no gummy goes out without being tested and approved by an FDA-approved third party. There, each batch of finished product undergoes a full panel test to assure that the blend meets all label claims. That way, you can be sure that what you read on our labels is what you get in our bottles. From start to finish, our internal Quality Assurance team is working hard to make sure that all our products meet and (hopefully) exceed the rigorous standards that we promise our children and our customers.
