We feel that eating a rainbow coloured vegan diet can provide everything your body needs, however with the soil not as it once was, the stress we find ourselves under and leading busy lives sometimes we may like to take health supplements.
Dr Justin Butler at Viva! explains here about what we may need to look into further vitamin wise including iodine and calcium and The Vegan Society tells us more about B12 here – along with their own brand vegan friendly supplements.
Below are some interesting supplements that our reviewers have enjoyed taking recently. The products will need to be taken for longer than we tried them out for however all of the reviewers felt the supplements were beneficial to take and would take again.

Vitamin C Zooki is a high grade Liposomal Vitamin C supplement – each sachet contains 1000mg of Vitamin C wrapped in billions of nano-sized spheres called “liposomes” that shield, protect and deliver the Vitamin C directly into your cells
Key facts on Vitamin C absorption:
Although Water-soluble Vitamins are easily absorbed into the blood, they can’t be stored by the body to be used at a later date
As easy as it is for Vitamin C to pass into the blood, it just as easily passes into the urine if it isn’t taken in by the cells
In order to maximise the benefit of a Vitamin C supplement, our cells need to be able to cope with a large spike in blood Vitamin C before it can be excreted from the body.
Most people understand the importance of maintaining bone and joint health whether they participate in sport, have an active lifestyle or are later in life.
Chondroitin is often the supplement of choice for maintaining healthy cartilage, however, for vegans, as it’s derived from animal products this isn’t an option. But there is an alternative.
Phytodroitin™ is a 100 percent plant-based alternative to Chondroitin, helping to maximise the effectiveness of Glucosamine on the health, mobility, and flexibility of joints.
Simon Bandy, General Manager of Veganicity, says: “Phytodroitin is a breakthrough for vegans as this is a plant derived supplement. To complement Phytodroitin we have combined it with Glucosamine – an amino sugar that is produced in the body from glucose and glutamine. Glucosamine plays a vital role in the health of synovial fluids, tendons, ligaments, skin, bones, heart valves and blood vessels, as well as in the digestive, urinary and respiratory tracts.”
