Is it important to take vitamins? Which supplements should I be taking? Are there certain vitamins that vegans need to use?
I get these questions all of the time, so in this video I’ll talk about the supplements I take and what they do for my body.
Of course you should be relying on a healthy plant-based diet to supply your body with necessary nutrients, but supplements are a great way to get that added boost!

The vitamins I take daily:
– Vitamin C for immunity and healthy skin. I take 500mg 3x daily. A liquid vitamin C works best, but an inexpensive pill will work too.
– B complex for a balance of essential B vitamins including b12 (an important nutrient for neurological health). B complex vitamins are helpful for controlling stress too! Can be taken as a pill, injection at the doctor, liquid, or dissolvable tablet.
– Vegan Omega 3 with EPA and DHA for heart and brain health. This omega-3 supplement is sourced from algae. Unlike fish oil it is unlikely to be contaminated with harmful pollutants and heavy metals.
– Zinc for hormonal balance and immunity. This is particularly helpful for maintaining healthy skin.
