Goli Superfruits Gummies are a mixed fruit concentrate designed to support skin health. While many of the ingredients are beneficial for the skin, your money would be better spent on eating more fruits and vegetables for the same benefit.

Pros

  • Tasty and easy to take
  • Reputable brand
  • Provides antioxidants and essential vitamins
  • Evidence-based ingredients for skin health

Cons

  • High in sugar with 8 grams for the full dosage
  • No additional benefit beyond what fruits and vegetables can provide
  • Several vitamins and minerals surpass the RDA

What Are Goli Superfruits Gummies?

Goli Superfruits gummies are the latest in the line of gummy supplements by Goli. They are best known for their apple cider vinegar gummies.

Goli is known for its innovative products delivered in a tasty gummy format.

The gummies are vegan, free of preservatives, gelatin, chemicals, corn syrup, allergens, dairy, wheat, and soy. In addition, they do not use artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors.

The company was founded in 2017 by Michael Bitensky. The brand works with a Nutritional Advisory Board of experts who help develop its products.

These experts include registered dietitians, nutrition professors, and physicians. This advisory board of health professionals helps give the brand credibility.

The Superfruits Gummies are a blend of nutrient-dense fruits such as goji berries and acai.

One gummy contains:

  • 12.5 calories
  • 3 g of carbs
  • 2 g of sugar
  • A variety of vitamins and minerals
  • 11 mg of silica
  • 100 mg of an organic fruit blend

The recommended dosage is 2 gummies, twice daily.

I tried the gummies, and they are more jelly-like and softer than I had anticipated. They have a fruity sweet taste, like a gummy candy.

One thing to note is that it took several weeks for me to receive my order. I believe this may be due to the high demand for this latest product.

However, Goli did send me a discount code for 15% off future orders.

Evaluation of Ingredients

One gummy contains a variety of vitamins, minerals, silica, and an organic fruit blend.

Note that on the label, the amounts listed are for 2 gummies. Therefore, to get the amount in a daily dose, you would be getting 2 times as much as what is on the label.

Goli Superfruits has several vitamins that are beneficial for the skin and have antioxidant properties.

From the label, it is unclear if these vitamins are what are naturally found in the fruit powder or if they are added in addition to the powder.

Vitamin A

(250 mcg per gummy or 1000 mcg per day)

Vitamin A is an essential fat-soluble vitamin needed for vision and reproduction. It also has antioxidant properties.

The RDA for vitamin A is 900 mcg for men, 700 mcg for women. So this product provides more than the RDA, which is a bit concerning for a fat-soluble vitamin.

The upper limit for vitamin A is 3000 mcg. However, this only applies to the type of vitamin A, called retinyl palmitate and similar forms, that is found in this product.

While the gummies don’t reach the upper limit, fat-soluble vitamins can be stored in the body, leading to potential toxicity.

While vitamin A is an essential vitamin, it is widely available in many foods. Therefore taking such a high daily dose in a supplement is not necessary.

Vitamin C

(90 mg per gummy or 360 mg per day)

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that plays a role in skin health, collagen production, and immunity.

The RDA for vitamin C for men is 90 mg per day and 75 mg for women. These gummies provide more than the RDA, but since vitamin C is water-soluble, this is likely not a concern for most people.

Most of the claims the product makes about skin health are likely due to the vitamin C content.

Vitamin C is well documented to help support collagen formation and protect the skin from UV damage that can speed up aging.

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that is necessary for skin health, but it can be easily found in fruits and vegetables.

Vitamin E

(5 mg per gummy or 20 mg per day)

Vitamin E is a collection of fat-soluble compounds with antioxidant properties.

The RDA for vitamin E is 15 mg per day; this product provides slightly more. The upper limit is 1000 mg; therefore, the amount in the product is not excessively high.

Vitamin E has many potential benefits for the skin due to its well-documented antioxidant, photogenic, and anti-tumor properties.

Zinc

(2.75 mg per gummy or 11 mg per day)

Zinc is a mineral that is essential for immunity, skin health, and protein synthesis.

Goli Superfruits provides 100% of the RDA for men in the 4 gummies and over 100% of the RDA for women, which is 8 mg.

A zinc deficiency, which is fairly uncommon, can lead to poor wound healing, alopecia, and other skin concerns.

Taking supplemental zinc regularly can interfere with the absorption of other minerals, like copper, and therefore should be avoided.

While correcting a zinc deficiency can improve skin, there is no evidence that additional zinc helps improve skin health and may cause harm.

Silica from Bamboo Shoot Extract

(11 mg per gummy or 44 mg per day)

Silica is a trace mineral that may play a role in maintaining bone strength and keeping skin healthy. There is no established ideal dose for silica.

This trace mineral may help support collagen production and keep skin healthy. It also plays a role in preventing hair loss and keeping hair healthy.

More research is needed on the optimal dosage for silica and its benefits for skin health.

Organic Fruit Blend

(100 mg per gummy or 400 mg per day)

The organic fruit blend contains 8 different “superfruits.” It is unclear how much of each fruit is provided in this product.

The fruits in the blend are known for their nutrition and antioxidant content.

For example, alma berry is rich in antioxidants that may protect against oxidative stress.

Acai berries are a rich source of antioxidants called anthocyanins, which have many health benefits.

Many of these fruits are a good source of nutrition, but there is no established dosage for this type of blend.

While research has found that concentrated fruit blends may have health benefits, they will never replace eating whole plants.

Side Effects, Safety, and Dosage

The dosage is 2 gummies twice a day. The website recommends 1 gummy per day for children.

Several of the vitamins provided in this dosage are above the RDA but not high enough to cause toxicity.

My main concern for this product would be the sugar content. Taking the recommended dosage would result in 8 grams of added sugar per day.

While the sugar in the product comes from organic cane sugar, it is still sugar. Therefore, people with diabetes or other blood sugar concerns should avoid this product.

The dosage of zinc in the product is too high to be taken regularly for more than a few weeks. Too much supplemental zinc can interfere with the absorption of other minerals, like copper.

High doses of vitamin A can cause nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, vomiting, and skin changes. But these are only seen in dosages well beyond what it is in this product.

High doses of vitamin E were associated with increased all-cause mortality in one meta-analysis. But again, this is in dosages well beyond what is in this product.

Overall, other than the sugar content, this product is likely safe for most people. However, it is always best to speak to your doctor before taking any dietary supplements.

Cost and Where to Buy

A 60-count bottle costs $19 if you purchase just one. The price can decrease to $16.50 per bottle if you order 6 or more on the Goli website. The price is comparable on Amazon.

If you took 4 gummies per day as directed, the bottle would only last about 2 weeks.

Almost $40 per month seems a bit steep for a gummy that mainly provides antioxidants that are easily found in whole fruit.

You could exceed the nutrients in this product for much less money and less sugar by purchasing a bag of oranges and eating one daily.

A large orange has around 100 mg of vitamin C and much more nutrition. The cost of 3 pounds of oranges is around $4 or 1/10 the cost of this product.

How Goli Superfruits Compare to Alternatives

There are many fruit concentrate and powder-based supplements on the market that are similar to Goli Superfruits.

Juice Plus+ has a fruit-based gummy that contains similar varieties of fruits compared to Goli.

You can purchase Juice Plus+, including both the fruit and vegetable blend, for $51 per month. This is a better deal than Goli, as it includes the nutrition from more fruits and vegetables.

Other brands, like Organifi, IVL, and Gundry MD, all carry superfruit powders with a similar nutritional profile.

These are powdered products designed to be mixed into water. In general, these are more expensive than the Goli gummies and not as simple to take.

If I were looking for a gummy-based fruit supplement, I would choose Juice Plus+ over Goli Superfruits.

But my first recommendation would be to eat 2 daily servings of fruit for the same benefit.

The Bottom Line

While there is research to support the potential skin-health benefits of many of the vitamins and superfruits in this product, I don’t see the point of spending $40 a month on nutrients you can easily get from fruits and vegetables.

That being said, the product does contain many nutrients that are important for helping the body make collagen and maintain healthy skin.

It might be appropriate to be used alongside supplemental collagen to boost its effects.

It could also be utilized for those that follow a vegan diet and cannot take supplemental collagen to help support collagen production.

Since ordering the product to try for this review, I have been taking it. I can’t say I feel or look any different since taking this product.

After writing this review, I will probably only take 2 gummies per day from now on.

While I trust the quality of the Goli brand and its products, the Superfruits Gummies will not provide any benefits beyond what you can get from a healthy diet.

You would benefit much more from spending $40 a month on a variety of fruits and vegetables.

A Word from Our RD

As an RD, I always recommend starting with the food first. Before purchasing this product, I would try eating 5–9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day instead.

There are many nutrients in real food that cannot be replicated in a supplement.

Plants are not only a rich source of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals but are also high in fiber, which is essential for health.

If you are concerned about skin health, a diet high in plant foods is the best way to have beautiful skin.

Other things you can do for skin health are protecting your skin from the sun, avoiding smoking, limiting alcohol, getting enough sleep, and drinking at least 8 cups of water daily.
