LiL’ Goodness POP-IT Gummies For Wholesome Health On-The-Go
Mishry recommends LiL’Goodnesss POP-IT Gummies for how conveniently they enhance immunity, inside-out!
‘Less is more’ – stands especially true in the case of micronutrients. A tiny quantity goes a long way in improving health markers.
LiL’Goodness, which is known for India’s first prebiotic chocolate bars and gut-friendly, Teff-based products, has introduced a range of nutritional gummies that are enriched with Vitamin D (orange-flavored) and turmeric (mint flavored).
Turmeric, the spice that imparts color to curries, is known to be the most effective supplement nature has given us. One of its active ingredients, curcumin, has proven to be beneficial for the brain and body. Its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant content also promote heart health. Moreover, turmeric is a granny-trusted ingredient for treating symptoms of cough and cold, which is one of the prime concerns owing to the rise in COVID-19 cases again.
Vitamin D3 is one of the most effective components of Vitamin D. D3 has been found to be twice as effective at raising overall Vitamin D levels in the bloodstream as compared to D1 and D2. Young kids with low Vitamin D levels may face the risk of Rickets, a condition where bones soften.
Vitamin D is crucial for the absorption of other minerals like calcium and phosphorus. Better bones, teeth, and immunity are certain benefits. On the other hand, insufficient Vitamin D3 can cause issues like muscle weakness, pains and aches, and even fractures.
PS- with schools reopening, these flavorful gummies would come in handy and keep symptoms of common cold, cough, and viral fever at bay.
Did you know that nearly 76% of Indians are Vitamin D deficient? For more details on taste, texture, packaging – read our detailed review here.

Did you know?- One lozenge packs 9 x the power of turmeric! It offers less than 5 kcal with 50 mg of curcuma longa.
Surprisingly, these nutritious gummies do not have an off-putting, industrial taste. Appreciated!
Vitamin D3 Orange
This variant had a citrusy orange flavor. The sweetness was subtle, and best of all- it did not taste medicinal like a supplement.
These lozenges had a cooling, refreshing mint taste. We could taste the turmeric mildly.
The brand recommends storing the lozenges under refrigeration before consumption.
PS- These must be sucked and not chewed. This is because sucking allows the nutrients to directly enter the bloodstream.
These are soft and chewy. We reviewed them post-refrigeration.
These feature a compact style of packaging. The lozenges are placed in slots and the pack opens like a book.
A pack holding 10 lozenges is priced at Rs 129/-.
In addition to strengthening immunity against cold and cough, the Turmeric lozenges may also help improve skin health and oral hygiene.
The Vitamin D3 gummies are a convenient way of enhancing your Vitamin D intake on the go!
To wrap up, Mishry recommends LiL’Goodness POP-IT Gummies for the convenience they offer. Moreover, the detailed ingredient list impressed us.
A bit about LiL’Goodness
LiL’Goodness- the brand that launched India’s first prebiotic chocolate bars is of the opinion that nutrient-dense food products should not result in a compromise on taste. And we second this! The brand’s vision primarily focuses on bridging the gap between nutrient deficiencies in kids and the ‘yum’ aspect of their favorite snacks.
From chocolate bars to milkshakes, Lil’Goodness has never fallen short of innovation. We appreciate how the brand adds truly healthy ingredients like turmeric, ginger, fruits, veggies, nuts- making our overall consumption easier.
Their products are available across all large e-grocery platforms like Amazon, Flipkart, BigBasket and offline in stores across cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Gujarat, among others.
