Yes.: Yes. No reason they cannot be. Only thing would be that chewable vitamins are meant for children, so would need to look at the levels of the vitamins in chewable ones and make any necessary adjustments for adult recommended allowances.

Yes: Of course. Yes..some don't like large pills.

In the past, many…: …docs would have answered "no" with the explanation that a nutritious diet should be adequate. Today, however, many docs feel vitamins are beneficial: people under much stress benefit from extra b & c. Vitamin d is being advised for many preventive reasons. Multivitamins often contain trace minerals essential to good health that many might not otherwise receive.

Where can I buy adult gummy vitamins?

Store or online: These will be readily available at a local store (try one of your buying clubs or local drug store) or online. Most adults can take two of children's gummy vitamins, but read the label to be safe. Always good to eat plenty of fresh fruits and veggies, get plenty of rest and have regular physical activity.
