Mighty Gum is a functional chewing gum company based in Seattle, WA. They launched their first product, the Berrymint flavored Immunity gum, in February of 2020. Their Immunity gum is made with adaptogens, botanicals, and vitamins that support the body’s natural ability to protect itself. Mighty Gum’s products are vegan, free from sugar, aspartame, allergens, and GMOs.
Chewing gum started out as a sweet treat over a 100 years ago, and evolved into a sugar free breath freshener we know and love today. However, the category stopped innovating shortly there after and this is where Mighty Gum is picking up. Mighty Gum believes that chewing gum can do more than just freshen our breath, and its Immunity gum is just the first product.
Mighty Gum’s immunity supporting chewing gum is made using extracts from Elderberry, Reishi Mushrooms, Ashwagandha, Astragalus, and Vitamins from fruit. The Immunity chewing gum brings together the best of Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, and Nutrition to elevate what consumers can expect from chewing gum.
Chewing gum is usually viewed as a simple sweet treat, however, it is the perfect way to get your vitamins. Chewing pieces throughout the day allows the body to more effectively absorb nutrients, and spaces out the optimal dose evenly. Additionally, instead of remembering to swallow a pill, functional chewing gum hacks an already existing and pleasurable experience.
On a mission to help humankind reach its full potential by empowering the human body, a portion of Mighty Gum sales goes to Vitamin Angels – a non-profit working to eliminate infant mortality due to malnutrition.
Launched in its debut Berrymint flavor, the Immunity variant of Mighty Gum comes in single pack ($5), 4 pack ($16) and 12 pack ($39) with eight pieces per pack available for purchase directly on mightygum.com.
While he excelled in a vast number of roles, Mighty Gum founder Mathew Thalakotur did not excel at remembering to take his vitamins every morning. This got him thinking about which of his existing habits he could easily hack to incorporate vitamins and supplements into? As a serial gum-chewer, it soon occurred to him that while he may not always have his vitamins on hand, he did always have a pack of gum in his pocket.
With this lightning bolt idea, Mathew launched Mighty Gum in 2018, which delivers both minty breath and provides a hefty dose of immunity-boosting vitamins and adaptogens with every chew.
Now you can feel as fresh as your breath! #BeUnstoppable
