Some nutrients are difficult to get through plant-based foods alone, therefore we have consulted Dietitian, Katherine Kimber with regards to which supplements are recommended to ensure you are getting what your body needs. The main ones to consider as a vegan are:
Vitamin B12 is not produced by plants and generally is found in fortified foods, it is needed to ensure our nerve and body cells remain healthy
Vitamin D is difficult to get from food and is hard to gain from the sun in winter months and is needed to support strong bones
Iodine other than seaweed, plants generally have a low iodine level however this is hard to know for sure, therefore a supplement of Kelp is a good way to ensure that you are getting what is required, it is needed to regulate your metabolism
Selenium levels vary in plant foods depending on the quality of the soil they are grown in. Brazil nuts provide a good amount; however a supplement is a more reliable way of ensuring you get what you need.
Omega 3 helps prevent heart disease and support healthy cognition, it generally comes from fish and is hard to ensure you get enough from plant-based foods alone so a vegan supplement can relieve any concerns that you are not getting enough
This bundle as designed by Katherine Kimber (Dietitian) contains all these essential nutrients that we know are difficult to get through plant based foods, all are suitable for vegans and are within the recommended levels however it is always advised to consult your health professional before taking supplements.
