Even vegans and vegetarians can lack essential nutrients!
We often associate plant-based diets with ultra-healthy lifestyles, but did you know that vegans and vegetarians are at higher risk of mineral and vitamin deficiencies?
Although these diets present many health benefits, they may be lacking essential key nutrients, including Vitamin B12, Calcium, Iron and Zinc.
These are just some of the vital nutrients that are often lacking in diets free of meats and animal-derived foods.
Vitamin B12: Organ oxygenation, energy, and brain health
Calcium: Prevents osteoporosis; promotes muscle contraction and relaxation
Zinc: Vital to male fertility, immune health
Iron: Promotes GI health, energy, fighting of infections, cognition
