Look after your health with these ethical supplements


5 vegan supplements for a plant-based diet

Whether you’re taking part in Veganuary for the first time or have been following a plant-based diet for many years, it’s always important to understand what essential nutrients you need to keep your health in tip-top shape. And with the ongoing pandemic coupled with the usual winter issues, nutrition is all the more important right now.

While it’s always best to obtain essential vitamins and nutrients from food, you may find that some of these are more difficult to obtain on a vegan diet, or perhaps you simply want to top up your levels for an extra boost. That’s where these vegan-friendly, sustainable supplements come in. These six health boosters will help to keep you fighting fit – plus we have a few exclusive discounts just for you!

DR. VEGAN Daily Multi-vitamin, £14.99,

DR.VEGAN is a range of naturally sourced and plant-based supplements which are more ethical and more effective. Formulated by expert nutritionists and free from any additives, allergens or animal ingredients, the range is suitable for all diets.

If you’re using the new year as a chance to get your health on track, then check out DR VEGAN’s highly acclaimed Daily Multi-Vitamin, which is on special offer for just £7.50 for Veganuary (offer ends 24/01/21). Containing 24 essential nutrients, it provides comprehensive support for your health and wellbeing, from healthy skin, hair, nails and bones, to your energy, immune health and mental performance. The brand’s range also includes Vegan Nights: Relax & Sleep, a natural formula of minerals and amino-acids that help you relax and have the perfect night’s sleep.

BetterYou Vegan Health Oral Spray, £14.95,

BetterYou’s Vegan Health Oral Spray contains four essential nutrients to support vegan health, including vegan D3, vitamin B12, iron and iodine. The pill-free formulation supports the immune system and contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

The oral spray has been specially formulated to deliver the nutrients directly to the bloodstream – via the inner cheek for enhanced absorption – providing a convenient alternative to tablets and capsules. The spray is also certified palm oil-derivative-free and contained in packaging made from Ocean Waste plastic, which is 100% recyclable.

Lifeplan Vegan Vitamin D3, from £6.99,

Over the past five years, the number of vegans in Great Britain has quadrupled at an astonishing rate, as more people are moving towards a plant-based diet. According to the Vegan Society, in 2019 there were 600,000 vegans compared to 150,000 vegans in 2014. Lifeplan’s new Vegan Vitamin D3 is made from lichen extract, which is made in a sustainable way. It’s available at either 25 micrograms (1000IU) or 50 micrograms (2000IU). Vitamin D contributes to the normal function of the immune system, as well as the maintenance of normal bones and muscle function.
