If you are a Vegan, like me, it is hard to admit that we need some supplements of the stuff that is in "meat". Since Humans are originally Omnivores and not Herbivores, it is necessary to investigate this. Science is evolving, as are we!

Introduction to the Vegan Supplement Checklist  

Convinced of my vegan lifestyle, out of respect of animal life, I want to promote veganism on the web.
By looking around on the internet how other people write about their vegan lives I mainly found vegan blogs about vegan cooking. Though it is always useful to expand your daily vegan meals and to try out new ingredients, I find it necessary to cover more on nutritional needs.
 There still appear cases in the news of people, mainly vegan children, that do suffer shortage of certain vitamins with all the consequences of this.

With this blog I want to develop a checklist with all the necessary supplements, easily to be followed by everyone trying to live an as healthy vegan and vegetarian life as possible.

Keep on questioning your vegan diet 

Keep on asking yourself the following questions;

Do I get all the vitamins and minerals I need through my plant based diet + supplements that I already take?

Which supplements I certainly need?
Because not all nutrients are found in plant based food or naturally manufactured in our body.
Which supplements I might need?
Because your diet might not be expanded enough, we need to eat a wide range of food to meet all our needs.
Some of use need extra; children, pregnant women and people with certain physical problems.

What are the (best) vegan supplements for those vitamins and minerals I am lacking?

I will keep on investigating all the aspects that are needed to stay healthy as a vegan adult and how to grow healthy vegan children.

I hope that vegan and vegetarian people will find the necessary information on this blog and if not point me out what is lacking in the vegan supplement checklist!

    I appreciate what you are doing, but it would have more credibility if you would identify yourself, and maybe provide a little "About Me" info. I look forward to seeing more entries. How about doing one on carnosine? A discussion of the forms of vitamin K would also be helpful.

    Thank you for your comments.
    It is just the idea of this website to help each other, since as a vegan I found it necessary to collect as much as possible nutritional info collected in one blog. I will certainly look further into carnosine and vitamin K.
    About giving my identity, that's one I need to think about...

    Vegan Amino Tabs are my favorite supplement. Does everyone else take them with them everywhere?

    It has been shown that Niagen is safe supplement and that it can be combined with other supplements and possibly medications, but it surely has to be check out with the medical professionals, so the consultation is advised.live cell research niagen

    Hi.. I just found your website, which I think is absolutely fantastic! and so much needed today, since the populations of Vegan people is growing day by day. Which I can only support...but It is so true that we have to take this vegan life style seriously. Please let us know who you are...it is very weird to not knowing where the info is coming from..and less trustworthy.. (although I so much agree) But I like to spread this news to other just beginners vegans.. and therefor share them your site.. So please introduce your self. Thank you so much. This is Yvette, from www.Yvetteshealthykitchen.com
