One thing I love about following a plant-based diet is the variety of nutrients I get on a daily basis ✨ I love to fill my plate with tons different colours to make sure I’m getting a range of nutrients, but one vitamin that I can’t get on a plant-based diet is vitamin B12 🌿 Vitamin B12 is super important for energy levels and brain function 🧠.
Although some plant-based foods and beverages are fortified with Vitamin B12, a supplement is recommended to make sure your levels are in check! I love these @megafoodcanada Vitamin B12 Ginger Gummies because they’re SO deliciously spicy and easy to take 🙌🏼 They’re made of organic, vegan + whole food ingredients and are gluten and soy free! If you’re not a fan of ginger, the cranberry flavour is great too! 😍.
Even those who don’t follow a plant-based diet can be deficient in B12! Always make sure to talk to your Registered Dietitian or physician when starting supplements to know exactly how much to take, and aim to get regular blood work to make sure you’re getting the right amounts of each nutrient 💛.
