Multivitamins are a great choice for supplement beginners wanting to boost their intake of several vitamins and minerals at once. Depending on your diet or health goals, you might need some nutrients more than others:
Vegan & Vegetarian Multivitamins
Whilst a plant-based lifestyle can give you all of the nutrients you need, deficiencies of vitamin B and iron are commonly associated with these diets.
Some top sources of vitamin B include meat, seafood, eggs and dairy products. It’s also found in smaller amounts in leafy greens, seeds and nutritional yeast. Without enough vitamin B you could experience tiredness, low energy, headaches and reduced appetite. 1
Similarly, iron is mostly found in animal products including red meats, fish and poultry. Iron deficiency, or anaemia affects an estimated 30% of the global population. (2) Symptoms include fatigue, heart palpitations and pale skin.
