In theory, you should be able to get most of the nutrients your body needs for optimum health on a plant-based diet. But because the theory is very different to practice, many vegans are deficient in a number of important nutrients.
The first reason for this is that often, the soil in which our food is grown has been depleted of minerals and nutrients, thereby producing nutrient-poor plants.
Secondly, to enjoy a fully balanced diet, vegans need to take the time to educate themselves on how and where to get the essential balance of nutrients they need for good health.
Third – and this affects almost everyone in modern society – our busy lives leave us reaching for over-processed “fake” food with little-to-no nutritional value.
Vital Organic Greens
Vital Just Greens is an ideal supplement for vegans because it’s a dairy-free, easily-absorbed formula that combines six of Mother Nature’s richest green superfoods:
- Wheat grass
- Barley grass
These antioxidant-rich, nutrition-packed ingredients can cleanse and alkalise the whole system, supporting immunity and boosting energy levels.
Vital Plant Protein
A lack of protein will lead to fatigue, a weakened immune system, anaemia, low blood pressure, liver and kidney problems, and a loss of muscle mass.
Vegans are particularly at risk of developing a protein deficiency and should supplement their diets with a quality dairy- and soy-free protein powder like Vital Pea Protein Powder.
Here are just a few reasons why you should stock up on this powerful supplement:
- The concentrated amino acid profile makes it easily digestible
- It can help control blood sugar levels
- It’s filling and delicious
- It can help the body with calcium and magnesium retention
- It contains no artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners
