Due to our increasingly busy lifestyles and a few vitamins mainly found in meat products many vegans still find it challenging to supplement all the essential vitamins or essential fatty acids they need for a balanced, healthy lifestyle.
The easiest way to avoid the health-related dangers a person could face due to vitamin deficiencies is by using the correct vitamins or supplements daily.
The following vitamins or essential fatty acids often need to be supplemented for maintaining a healthy vegan lifestyle.
- Omega 3 (EPA & DHA) – Vegans often lack these essential fatty acids in their diet as the main source to include it in a healthy diet is often through eating fish. Using an Omega 3 vegan supplement where the Omega 3 is extracted from Algae are clean, sustainable, free from heavy metals and pesticides.
- Vitamin K2 as Mk-7. Vitamin K2 is normally found in animal products or fermented foods. Vitamin K2 is essential for healthy skin, brain function, strong bones, healthy blood and supporting development and growth in children and adults.
- Vitamin E is a powerful natural antioxidant and often lacking in our normal diet. The natural form (d-form) has a better bioavailability then the synthetic form used by a big majority of commercial vitamin manufacturers. The synthetic form of Vitamin E is also only half as effective compared to the natural form.
- Vitamin D3 also know as the “sunshine vitamin” is mainly found in animal products for example, beef, cheese, milk egg yolk and fish. Vital Vitamin D3 is sourced from Lichen which is plant based and thus 100% vegan friendly.
To avoid deficiencies in the above mentioned essential fatty acids and vitamins it becomes vital for most vegans and vegetarians to supplement with premium organic supplements to ensure a healthy balanced lifestyle.
