New To Vegan Supplements? A Guide To The Must Haves

Supplements are perfect for supporting a healthy diet, so that you can make sure that you’re getting the nutrients you need. Supplements come in many different shapes and sizes and your needs will differ depending on your lifestyle, size, and lots of other factors, however there’s a few that can benefit almost everyone. So, we’ve listed the must haves for your cupboard to keep you feeling on top form every day.

Protein Powders

Protein is essential for a healthy diet, and while there are plenty of plant-based sources of protein out there, a vegan protein powder is a quick and convenient way to meet your daily target. Simply mix with water or plant milk for a delicious dairy-free shake.

If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed about the different plant-based protein powders out there, then here’s a quick summary of our three favourites:

1. Vegan Protein Blend

The Vegan Protein Blend is an all-natural blend of plant-based protein delivering 22g of protein per serving. You want to make sure that you’re putting only the best ingredients into your body, so this shake gets its protein from peas and fava beans and contains no unnatural colourings or flavourings too.

2. Soy Protein Isolate

This protein powder packs a hefty 27g of protein per serving, as well as being low in fat and carbohydrate. This is because it’s made from defatted soy beans, using a special process that leaves it with zero sugar too. It’s a great option for those who want plenty of protein, without the extra carbohydrate.

 

3. Pea Protein Isolate

Other Essentials

Vegan A-Z Multivitamin

If you’ve done your reading, then you’ll know that one vitamin that vegans can fall short on is vitamin B12. As this vitamin mainly comes from animal products, the only way to get it is through a supplement or fortified foods, such as some plant milks.

This multivitamin also contains 21 other vitamins, so that you don’t ever have to worry about being under the weather. They include vegan vitamin D3, vitamin C, and calcium, for a convenient daily boost, so that you can get on with being you.

Vegan Protein & Greens

Supplements are all about adding that little bit extra to your diet in a quick and easy way. This supplement definitely does that — it’s packed with lots of different whole food extracts to really pack that nutritional punch. The protein comes from pea and fava beans, while the rest of the goodness comes from foods such as kale, spirulina, tomato, spinach, blueberries, and green tea extract.

With this easy to make shake, you can meet your daily recommendations for protein, as well as a whole host of other nutrients.

Vegan Protein Bar

A supplement doesn’t have to be a pill or powder. Healthy snacks supplement your diet by supporting a balanced lifestyle. As a vegan, it’s all too easy to go for the easily available snacks on offer, such as carb-heavy crisps. Instead, why not opt for a protein-packed snack to keep you going between meals.

The Vegan Protein Bar is the perfect treat that will keep you on track. It’s crafted from nuts, cacao butter, and chocolate chips for the ultimate indulgence. They’re also gluten-free and contain no artificial ingredients, making them perfect to stash in your bag when the hunger hits.

Taking on a plant-based diet can open you up to a whole host of different foods and flavours, but supplements can help make it even more convenient for you. Make sure that you’re getting the nutrients you need wherever your life takes you.
