A vegan diet is a type of vegetarian diet that follows a plant-based way of eating. It eliminates all animal-based products including meat, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs, honey and dairy. Following a plant-based diet inevitably leads you to incorporate more wholefoods in the form of whole grains, beans, legumes, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds. It’s no surprise this diet is on the rise, as vegan diets boast numerous health benefits and can provide high levels of antioxidants, fibre, nutrients and phytochemicals.
However, not all vegan diets are created equal.
You may find yourself reaching for fast-food or nutrient poor options if you’re not organised and poorly plan your meals. Keeping up with daily commitments and a busy lifestyle can make it difficult to plan out your daily intake to ensure your body is getting adequate amounts of essential nutrients. Common nutritional deficiencies include vitamin B12, iron, iodine, calcium, zinc and vitamin D.
Supplementation can be an easy, convenient way to take your nutrition to the next level. Introducing one or a few vegan supplements into your daily routine can provide the extra support when the demands of life get in the way. It’s vital to ensure most of your nutrients come from wholefoods, as supplements are intended to do just that; supplement a well-rounded diet. The tricky part is finding supplements that are suitable for vegans. It may not be clearly labelled on the product, or they simply do not exist. You may find yourself searching high and low for a trusted brand that has a vegan-friendly offering.
