So, you’re vegan and you’re wondering if you should take a multivitamin. First of all, good for you for taking charge of your health! Although you might be looking for a quick “yes” or “no” answer, the long and short of it is: it depends.
While it is recommended that vegans supplement with vitamin B12 and possibly vitamin D depending on where you live, taking a multivitamin is not necessarily required. Consuming a well-balanced vegan diet may meet your micronutrient needs, but what if you still want to supplement? Maybe you’re a self-proclaimed “junk food vegan” or you’re working on loving that fruit and veggie section of your plate. Regardless of your “why,” taking a multivitamin may be a great idea for your lifestyle. It’s important to note that not all vitamins are vegan. Some contain gelatin or utilize vitamins derived from animal sources (yuck!). On the other hand, plenty of vegan vitamins exist on the market today, but how do you choose? Leave it to us! We dug in and found 10 vegan multivitamins to consider in your search.
