There's no doubting that a vegan or vegetarian diet can have many health benefits, such as for Slimming & Weight Loss or reducing the risk of certain diseases. However, both vegan & vegetarian diets may require certain Supplements to reduce any potential nutrient deficiencies that come from not consuming animal products like meat. Natures Healthbox have an extensive selection of vegan & vegetarian friendly Food supplements, which include Iron, Calcium and vitamin B12 products.
As vitamin B12 is only found naturally in animal products, a risk of vitamin B12 deficiency is often associated with a vegan diet.
Other than our fine selection of vegan friendly supplements (below), vegans can obtain vitamin B12 from fortified foods, such as breakfast cereals, soy products and some Dairy Free Milk sourced from plant-based ingredients.
It is advised that vegetarians need to ensure they are getting enough vitamin B12 and iron, particularly women who are thought to be at particular risk of an iron deficiency.
