How to Make Sure You Are Getting Enough Vitamins on a Vegan Diet

Being vegan can be really beneficial to your body and health but it also comes with some small dangers that you should be aware of. 

A vegan diet will give you all the minerals and vitamins you need but you need to make sure you are getting some vitamins that you get in abundance on a meat-eating diet.

1. Vitamin B-12 
Many vegan people said that they had a vitamin b-12 deficiency which is a vitamin found mostly in dairy products and in meats. This vitamin can be found in plant-based foods too. Vegan milk such as soya milk, coconut milk or almond milk contains this vitamin. 

2. Protein
A lot of vegans only eat salad and greens. It's really important to get enough protein so your body can build muscle and do all the necessary functions. Protein can be found in beans. Adding Chia seeds to your salad will give you an extra source of protein. You should also try meat alternative products that usually contain large amounts of protein.

3. Calcium
Calcium is mainly found in dairy products and most people who eat dairy products don't have a calcium deficiency but that's not the case for vegans. Many vegans avoid drinking vegan milk or vegan milk products such as cheese. Water also contains calcium so make sure you are drinking 8 glasses of water per day.  Don't be scared to try new dairy alternative products. Almond milk is one of the best options.

Being vegan can really be beneficial for your body, health, and the planet as soon as you do it right. Getting vegan vitamin supplements at your local pharmacy can really be helpful on a plant-based diet.
