Did you know not all vitamins are suitable for vegans?

Vitamins, probably not something you have thought about checking the label on to make sure they are suitable for vegans. Here are a few hidden things in vitamins making some not suitable:

  • Bonemeal; animal bones
  • Cysteine; animal derived.
  • Fish oil
  • Gelatine; animal bones
  • Lactose; sugar from mammals milk
  • Glucosamine; made from shellfish
  • Plus loads more

Thankfully there are now quite a few companies selling vitmains suitable for vegans such as Real Nutrition – they currently offer 3 different vitmains. Organic tumeric, Maca root as well as iron and vitamin C.

I take a whole host of vitamins daily, namely;

  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin B12
  • Iron and vitamin C
  • Tumeric extract
  • Magnesium
  • Glucosamine sulphate

I use these to help manage and reduce some of my symptoms of Fibromyalgia such as brain fog, tiredness, aching muscles and joints as well as ensuring as a vegan I am hitting those B12 targets.

For the past few weeks I have been using Real Nutritions vitamins in place of the others I had been taking to compare them.

I cannot fault them, they are easy to take and haven’t caused any stomach issues (sometimes vitamins can make me feel a little bit sick). They have high levels of each vitamin/supplements meaning you don’t have to worry about not getting enough etc – a lot of cheaper supplements contain a very low quantity of the vitamin.

Real Nutrition’s range are pretty much free of all nasties such as gluten, lactose, colourings, sugars/sweetners, salt, preservatives, alcohol and additives.

Their range starts from £12.99 for a minimum 2 month supply.

For the eco conscious out there, their products are made using 100% renewable energy and their packaging is 100% recyclable.
