It can be difficult when following a vegan diet to fulfill all your nutritional needs. Some of the main macronutrients, vitamins and minerals to look at closely are protein food sources, calcium, iron, vitamin B12, iodine, zinc, selenium, omega 3 and omega 6. It can therefore be beneficial for those following a plant-based diet to consider taking supplements to provide a helping hand to obtaining the recommended daily intake for these nutrients.
Did you know, here at Lifeplan over 70% of our products are Vegan? These products range from everyday essentials like Vegan Vitamin D3 and Vitamin C, to our more complex formulations like Relaxon, BerryWell, Eye ‘C’, Windaway and many more. All of our vegan products are specially formulated by our in-house nutritionist for all your health needs.
We are always looking for the latest ingredients to replace animal derivatives. Our new Vegan Vitamin D3 for example, uses sustainably sourced Lichen Extract, which is a plant species often found on rock stones and wood bark.
All of our products that carry the vegan logo have been through the Vegan Society approval process meaning that from source to the end product, all the ingredients are suitable for vegans and are traceable.
Sustainability is key to us and so we always aim to develop our supplements with ingredients that are sustainably sourced, manufactured in a sustainable way using green energy and packaged using material that is safe for the environment and the consumer. We manufacture the majority of our products on site, here at our factory in rural Leicestershire, which helps to ensure a consistent supply of high-quality supplements.
We also like to educate our customers on the nutrients that go in the food supplements and provide all the necessary information to enable them to make informed choices about the products they purchase.
