Have you just started your Vegan journey and realized that maybe your missing some valuable nutrients that meat and dairy use to provide?
After becoming Vegan the biggest questions I get is how do you get all the needed nutrients that meat and cheese use to prove you?
Believe it or not Cows get their B-12 from the nutrients in the soil or by a supplement that they are given and then we receive the nutrient left over in their meat. I say...skip the met and go straight for the supplement.
I noticed a drastic difference in my energy levels after I became Vegan! My endurance was up and me waste was going down for sure.
By the second week I was beginning to notice headaches and brain fog, this was definitely a new experience for me as I never get headaches.
I started to do some research and realized that this is common and even the Vegan flu is common. This is a combination of detoxing and missing valuable nutrients.
Here's my list of crucial vitamins to help maintain vital health and wellness:
Vitamin B-12 is crucial in the diet, it helps support bodily processes like metabolism and the formation of oxygen-transporting red blood cells.
Being Vitamin B-12 deficient can cause anemia and nervous system damage. The dosage recommendation does vary based on age. But most common recommendations are 2.4 mcg per day for adults, 2.6 mcg per day during pregnancy, and 2.8 mcg per day while breastfeeding.
You can also get a Vitamin B-12 test kit if you are really concerned.
I wasn't sure which form I would like the most, pill, spray or gummy so I bought all three and these are the ones I chose:
Here are 3 B-12 vitamins that I tried, all with different results.
Before you freak out the dosage amount, this is a weekly supplement. This is best for someone that doesn't want to take a daily supplement. This definitely gave me instant energy and I noticed that I could easily skip my morning coffee. This flavor is awesome easy to chew.
