Are you trying out #Veganuary? Or perhaps you have been vegan or plant-based for years! Either way, Veganuary is the movement everyone has been talking about this month, and Eternal zest is here to help you along the way!
Vegauary is an annual challenge whereby participants aim to follow a vegan diet and lifestyle for the duration of January. Since the event began in 2014, Veganuary has inspired and supported more than one million people in 192 countries to go vegan for January.
This is great news for people’s health, animal welfare, and also for the planet! In order to help support a vegan lifestyle, certain supplements can be helpful in maintaining healthy function of the body, as certain elements can be more difficult to obtain. This is where supporting a vegan diet with supplementation can be really useful.
‘’A vegan diet conveys many health benefits as well as being extremely positive for the environment and animal welfare. But it is important to be mindful of any missing essential nutrients that help us live long, healthy and happy lives and look out for additive free, vegan supplements that can ensure your daily nutrient levels are met.’’
Lee Robertshaw, Founder of Together
The only dietary sources of vitamin D3 are animal-derived ones, aside from our body’s conversion of sunlight which, let’s face it, is in short supply at the best of times. Even in the summer months, your body requires an amount of D3 supplementation, so this Vitamin D supplement supports bone and immune health by providing 1000iu of vitamin D per tablet.
This can only be reliably found in meat, fish, and dairy which, if you are doing the Veganuary challenge or are a vegan or even a vegetarian, this vitamin should be supplemented to avoid long-term health issues. Our B Complex tablets cover all of the essential vitamin B requirements.
One of the most extensive studies of vegetarians and vegans in the world found that they had the lowest levels of magnesium and zinc, a deficit of which can lead to Osteoporosis and hair loss. Our combined tablets help supplement both of these issues in one product, also with added D3 supplementation!
One study showed that 80% of vegans are iodine deficient, and Iodine is necessary for thyroid hormones which help keep cells and the metabolic rate healthy. Usually present in fish, this source of Iodine is derived from sea kelp, a sustainable and animal-friendly way to supplement your diet!
