Why it's important to take vitamins

Taking vitamins is a great way to make sure that your body in consuming enough nutrients, which can be relatively difficult on a vegan diet.  This blog post will tell you some of the top reasons for taking vitamins – especially as a vegan.

 

Fruits and Vegetables:

If we’re honest, most of us don’t eat our five a day every day.  If you’re slacking on this then vitamins are a great way to supplement your nutritional gaps.  However, they won’t make up for a bad diet; they will only support a good one.

 

Your Diet:

There is a high change that your diet is not as healthy as you think, and most of us don’t consume even nearly enough essential nutrients.  This is because we make pretty bad nutritional choices, and the most accessible and affordable foods are unhealthy.  In processed foods, you can’t control how much salt and sugar you are consuming, and these foods are really low in nutritional value.  Vitamins can help give your body a needed nutritional boost!

 

Organic Eating:

Even if you are eating a purely organic, unprocessed diet (good for you!) you could still be missing out on vital vitamins!  When you are exercising regularly you need to make sure your nutritional intake is enough to support this, so vitamins are a really helpful, compact way to add some support.

 

How to pick your vitamins?

It’s important to know what to look for and what to avoid when choosing a vitamin.  Supplements with lactose, flavourings, artificial colourings and sugar are an obvious avoid!  The best choice will be easily absorbed, and you should take them twice a day for ultimate support!
