Vegan Vitamins To Supplement A Plant-based Diet

If you follow a vegan or plant-based diet, there are certain vitamins and minerals you could be taking to help support the healthy function of your body. Although a vegan diet is often rich in fruit and vegetables, there are certain elements that can not be consumed through diet alone and therefore supplements can help avoid potential deficiency. A vegan diet can be one of the best ways to keep your body healthy, and we’re here to give you a hand.

Whether you are already a vegetarian, or flexitarian, the concern that a vegan diet will stop you absorbing everything you need can be a major factor in holding many people back from committing to a plant-based diet. Fortunately, a varied and balanced diet can provide you with the goodness you need, and for those vitamins that are difficult to source in line with an ethical lifestyle, Eternal Zest is here to help guide you through the supplements available to supplement your diet.

  1. Vitamin B12
    This is often found in meat, poultry and fish, and so is difficult to source in a vegan diet. Natures Aid® Vitamin B Complex provides a source of B vitamins to support normal energy-yielding metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.vegan vitamin B
  2. Vitamin D 
    Very few foods naturally contain vitamin D, and even when they do they often do not contain enough to reach the required levels in a diet. Vegans and omnivores alike need Vitamin D supplements to ensure the function of body processes, including immune function, mood, memory, and muscle recovery.

  3. Omega 3s 

    These are mostly found in fatty fish and fish oils. Vegetarians and vegans have up to 50% lower blood and tissue concentrations of omega acids, and so would benefit from increased intake through supplements.  Starflower Oil is agreat alternative and rich in the Omega 6 fatty acid GLA, each 500mg capsule provides 90mg Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA).

  4. Iodine

    Getting enough iodine is essential for healthy thyroid function, which controls your metabolism. The only foods considered to have consistently high iodine levels are iodized salt, seafood, seaweed, and dairy products, which pick up iodine from solutions used to clean cows and farm equipment. Iodine levels in plant foods depend on the iodine content of the soil in which they were grown, making it difficult to ensure the correct intake. These sea kelp tablets provide 450ug of Iodine per daily dose.
