At the beginning of this pandemic, I thought it would be a good idea to start looking after myself and my body a lot more than I did before, so looked into vitamins to start with.
That’s when I stumbled upon YUMI, and this is how my YUMI journey started.
But let’s backtrack a second, and go in some sort of order. I have never been good at sticking to a routine, let alone taking vitamins. It’s bad of me, but at the same time, it’s that one thing I try to work on every single year.
And while I can initially succeed… Well, you know how the rest goes. A lot of us are guilty of this. Until this year. My friends, readers, everyone: I have been keeping up this habit since March 2020 and I couldn’t be any more proud of myself!

My secret, you ask? Well, as you might have noticed – I am a sweet tooth. I like chewing on stuff, and these YUMI Gummies are just perfect: two chewy gummies a day and I am sorted.
My YUMI journey & review
I initially started using them when I found their Gut Health Probiotic Gummies – I was looking for some help with my constantly irritated stomach, and since taking this I have struggled a lot less with it. And it’s as easy as chewing on my two gummies every morning.
When I first got them, they were not made as a vegan-friendly formula, but they have since changed this so everyone can enjoy these. They not only help improve your digestive system by promoting the creation of healthy gut bacteria, but they are also advised to people struggling with IBS as they ease most digestion issues.
After almost a year of being on these probiotics, I was approached by someone in their team to see if I was up for trying some other ones, and of course, I jumped with joy as the other vitamins I was taking were very much painful to swallow – I struggle, no matter the size! – as most of the ones I had tried were not coated, nor chewable.
The options with YUMI are endless.
So then the other vitamins I usually take are something to help with hair, skin and nails & something to help me with supporting my immune system and metabolism. Plus a good multivitamin, yet to switch to any other, but that’s a story for a different day. Back to my YUMI journey.
That’s when YUMI’s Hair – Skin – Nails came into my life. My previous biotin pill was tiny, yes, but was also a struggle to swallow. I said it before, no matter the size, unless it’s coated I cannot put it down. That goes the same for stuff like paracetamol etc.
Since using biotin, my nails are way stronger, they don’t peel, my hair is a lot thicker and my skin has cleared quite a lot from all the acne from my teenage years. A revolution, if you ask me. Again, this formula is vegan and with two gummies a day, you are fully sorted.

The start of my YUMI journey, but not an end in sight.
Then there was a new addition to the bits I was taking care of, and since I have decided to start exercising properly from home at the beginning of this year, I realised I needed something to help with my constant fatigue and that was going to support not only my immune system but also my now speeding metabolism.
I am sure we have all read about the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar, so I am going to refrain from repeating said information. These gummies right here, the YUMI Lean & Detox Gummies are the absolute bomb.
They do not taste terrifying as if we were going to chuck down a shot of apple cider vinegar – with an even alien-lookalike of a mother included! – but like apples, a very subtle hint to the vinegar and again, very much vegan.
Because I loved them so much – and even managed to get Cristina on board with taking them regularly! – the guys at YUMI have offered a discount code for our readers: just pop GRUMPYOLIVE20 when checking out, and you’ll get 20% off your total. This works for both new and existing customers alike!
And once again, thank you to the YUMI team for getting us addicted to their super gummies!
