SAN CLEMENTE, CA, August 4, 2004 -- Hero Nutritionals, makers of YummiÂ® BearsÂ®, a leading childrenÂ¹s gummy vitamin line, has launched YummiÂ® BearsÂ® SourzTM and YummiÂ® GwormsÂ® SourzTM, multi-vitamins targeted toward tweens, children ages eight to 13 years of age. Yummi Bears Sourz and Yummi Gworms Sourz provide the vitamins and minerals essential for proper growth and development coupled with a powerfully sour flavor that tweens love.
"Tweens are notoriously picky, and getting them to take a standard multi-vitamin can prove extremely difficult," stated Jennifer Hodges, founder and CEO of Hero Nutritionals. "Sourz offer the same delicious gummy formula as other Yummi Bear products, but provide additional vitamins necessary for children entering their teens, as well as a super-sour flavor specifically formulated to satisfy their discerning tastes."
Yummi Bears Sourz and Yummi Gworms Sourz are all-natural and contain no yeast, wheat, milk, egg, soy, gluten, salt, artificial colors, artificial flavors, salicylates or preservatives. Additionally, they provide 100 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamins A, C, D, E, B-6 and B-12, as well as folic acid and zinc. Yummi Bears Sourz and Yummi Gworms Sourz are currently available for purchase at health and natural food stores across the U.S.
Hero Nutritionals produces a variety of nutritional supplements for children, tweens, adults and diabetics. Established in 1996, Hero has maintained a leading position in the childrenÂ¹s vitamin and supplement category since 1997. The company continues to expand its unique supplement offerings to help adults address health concerns such as depleted energy levels, low fruit and vegetable intake, calcium deficiency, as well as numerous factors associated with diabetes and pre-diabetes.
Hero's first product line, YummiÂ® BearsÂ®, is the #1 children's vitamin line in units sold in the natural products industry, and the first all-natural gummy vitamin products.
