What Vitamins & Minerals Should Vegans Take
To help you navigate your way through the full range of vegan vitamins and minerals we've collated a top five.
Vitamin A, also known as retinol, helps your immune system, supports your vision and keeps your skin, especially sensitive areas like your nose lining, healthy.
Vitamin B, comprising Thiamin (B1), Riboflavin (B2), Niacin (B3), Folic Acid and others, is a complex group of healthy body building blocks. B Vitamins have a direct impact on your energy levels, brain function and cell metabolism.
Vitamin C, probably the most well known of them all, helps protect cells keeping you healthy, maintains our skin, blood vessels, bones and cartilage and helps with wound healing.
Calcium famously builds and maintains strong bones. Heart, muscles and nerves also need calcium to function properly and it helps blood clot naturally when we bleed.
Finally, getting enough Iron is vital as iron is a key component of hemoglobin. This is the substance in red blood cells which carries oxygen around the body distributing. Without it we feel weak and tired, have breathing difficulties and risk dizziness.
