To take supplements or to not take them – that is the question. According to plant-based doctors, you should be able to get everything you need from food with the exception of vitamin B12. I believed that until recently. After my vitamin D issues, I now believe we all have different bodies and where I may be able to get one or more nutrients entirely from food, you may not be able to. Therefore I think supplementing should be an individual thing.
If you’re struggling to get enough of one nutrient, you need to speak with your doctor or naturopath about how best to supplement or what foods you need to eat more of to get enough of what you need.
I now know that I can’t enough vitamin D from my diet alone and supplementing is extremely essential. Right now I’m taking vitamin D3 supplements which are not vegan to give me a quick boost. I wasn’t doing too well with vitamin D2 which is vegan. I know some of you will be disappointed with this, but I’m doing the best I can.
I’ve just published the blog post about my blood test results and the medication I’m currently taking to resolve things. •
