AD| Fact: You can eat the ‘best’ diet in the world and still wind up with nutritional deficiencies – life, genetics {and possibly underlying issues} are just unfair like that ?.
If you’ve followed me for the last 9 months, you’ll know that around summer I was diagnosed with a vitamin D deficiency. According to the tracking apps I was using, I was getting enough vitamin D through my diet, but alas, I still fell short ?, and I had to take a high-dose vitamin D supplement for about a month to bring my levels back up to normal.
The best source of vitamin D is ☀ However, if you live in a temperate climate or in a country like England where sunlight is scarce ☁?, a vitamin D supplement may be necessary. Most of the vitamin D supplements available for vegans are in the form of vitamin D2, which our bodies need to convert into vitamin D3 {the active form} before it is used. Vitamin D3 supplements are easier to absorb, but most of the ones available are non-vegan. I was pleased to find this vitamin D3 supplement from @cytoplanltd that is vegan {made from lichen complex} but also high potency (2500iu) per tablet??.
I prefer to take supplements only when needed. Since my levels of other important vitamins and minerals are fine, I’m comfortable with taking only a vitamin D3 (and vitamin B12) supplement. If you’re looking for supplements to complement your diet, check out the #cytoplan range of products on their website They are all made through whole foods, are Soil Association certified organic, and over 90% of their products are vegan & vegetarian ??
