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  

7 reactions

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!
