More people than ever are dropping the meat and switching to a plant based diet. Here in the UK, we’re front-runners for this food revolution: some 600,000 of us are vegans, a fourfold increase since 2014 [1].Vegan food is fast becoming a top takeaway option, Veganuary is picking up steam and Instagrammers country wide are being influenced by endless snaps of jack-fruit.

For supplements, I like vegetarian capsules; “citrate” forms of minerals are fine, and vitamin E and beta-carotene must be in their natural form.

My colleague Dr. Parris Kidd, who has more than 35 years of experience working with supplements, recommends that everyone have a core nutraceutical program that includes a broad-spectrum “multiple” (nutraceutical multiple vitamin-mineral supplement), plus a concentrated fish oil or vegan source of omega-3s EPA and DHA.

So even though a well-planned plant-rich, whole-foods vegan diet can contain plenty of ALA, we still recommend a pharmaceutical-grade fish oil supplement for EPA and DHA because individuals differ in how well their body converts ALA to EPA and DHA.

One may ask if it’s possible to take into account each vitamin, mineral, and essential fat, plus the necessary protein, amino acids, and fiber, and then to develop a plan that meets the nutrient needs of every adult vegan—a plan that fits on a page or two for daily use.

  • I am a raw vegan For 2 years now. We currently are on lock down due to the covid19 pandemic and I wanted to share these Nutrilite vitamin D supplements for immune and bone health that ARE ACTUALLY VEGAN. Made of Mushrooms!I just ordered my second bottle, they are amazing, Check them out! https://www.amway.com/en_US/Shop/Nutrition/Vitamins-%26-Supplements/Targeted/Nutrilite%26trade%3B-Vitamin-D/p/119346

  • With proper supplementation SOME people can thrive long term on a vegan diet, but many cannot due to biological differences. There has never been a vegan society in history, humans are omnivores. In nature there is no life without death. Most vegans have little direct connection with nature. Add organ meats, eggs, oysters, sardines to what is recommended here and most will thrive for decades.

  • I think this video just makes everything more confusing, and if you are not vegan it sounds like you can never get enough nutrients on a vegan diet..

    Have been vegan wfpb for 5 years, excellent health, only take b12 and vit D

  • Hi Guys, I know this is off the subject but can you advise me. Ive just got a second rescue dog, she’s big and she looks like a lab. The problem is the hair!! my other dog is low shedding so its a huge change for me to have dog hair to deal with. Do you have any tips? Im hoovering all the time. Your place looks so sharp and clean i’m wondering how you cope. Do you let them on your bed? Thank you

  • Don’t call it a pandemic. It is not. It isn’t nearly even as bad as the flu. WTF is the world doing!? The emperor has no clothes already!

  • Hey Klaus, @plantbasednews Dr. Klaper no longer recommends DHA supplements because they have been linked to aggressive cancer, especially prostate cancer in men. He is actively retracting that recommendation now, trying to get the word out. Please edit the video so people are not misinformed. Jeff Nelson at VegSource channel has this video there, along with others on the series reviewing the studies and what experts say. I recommend watching all of them. Here is his short video on it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lTy-BSCGP8 There is another video of Dr. Klaper on VegSource channel that goes into more detail, along with the other videos Jeff made on the topic. I took DHA for years. And I stopped when I saw these.

  • I’m not sure on the amount of b12 to be taking, is one 1,000mcg tablet once a week ideal? What is ideal? The really high doses (2500, 5000, 6000mcg+) do make me nervous.

  • This video was great! I became vegan about a year ago and i feel really good but i often have backpains and now i know why. Definitely going to check out that seaweed!

  • Vegan are more susceptible for a b12 deficient, but there is not certain that they would develop such deficiency. Internal production is possible (I have personal proof of this and there some studies that prove internal production in humans). 40% fo population es deficiency of subdeficiency, the issue these days is for everybody. Of course supplement is the most reliable source of b|12 nowadays.

  • This video was great! I became vegan about a year ago and i feel really good but i often have backpains and now i know why. Definitely going to check out that seaweed!

  • I’ll tell you a secret that you probably aren’t aware of. Most ascorbic acid (vitamin c) is made from black mold. It has been for years. If you want to take vitamin c it’s best to buy the more expensive vitamin c that comes from acerola cherries. Just look for acerola vitamin c. This is the pure stuff.

  • This is just stupid. Way too many vitamins and minerals in that Healthy Cell gel… You can’t talk about B12, D3, EPA, DHA, iodine, zinc, creatine in the video, and then promote a supplement that has 24 extra micronutrients inside. There’s just no legitimacy in that…

  • I am sure these clips are taken out of context: https://youtu.be/OR9jIVKSJ4k Have you done a reply video on it? Respect on the visectomy, antinatalism is morally sound.

  • B-12 is crucial for maintaining many bodily processes, this plays a role in the information of red blood cells, helps metabolize proteins and sometimes supports a healthy nervous system
    If you’re looking for B-12, go ahead, just a click away.

  • I believe we should also take Glutathione ideally sublingually for maximum absorption, lumeniX is my preferred brand by entity health.

  • Hello, I’m new to your channel and my family and I are in the early stages of switching to a plant based diet. My concern is making sure my children (ages 2 & 9) get all the nutrients they need. What supplements do children need? What do you give to Max? Thank you ��

  • Best information ever. I have been experiencing tingling in feet, feeling sluggish and a bit depressed. I live in Indiana, so no sun for the winter months. I eat veggies, fruit, beans and GF grains. No dairy. I’m in good shape. I workout everyday, but I feel like I am not giving it my all during the workout. I do protein shakes with a scoop of greens and frozen fruit. I’m certain maybe dehydration is some of the reason, but after listening to your video, it all makes sense now. When I sleep my feet tingle. Most times my finger joints hurt, too. Inflammation, I am sure. Thank you! I’ll check out your links for the brands.

  • I heard something about L-Tryptofhan in a study about happyness. The main sourcy for this is eggs. In a vegan lifestyle we dont use eggs anymore. Is this something to worry about? There are suplements for this.

  • Veggies & More thanks for this helpful video. I take Veg1 multivitamin containing Vitamins B2, B6, B12, D3, Folic Acid, Iodine and Selenium, and I also take Magnesium and Iron.
    I have been researching plant based eating and women’s nutritional needs as I developed bad PMS recently. It hasn’t been easy as there is lots of conflicting info out there. Some are saying that an exclusively plant-based diet can impair ovulation and cause nutrient deficiency of some key brain-health nutrients that cannot be obtained in sufficient amounts from plant foods, such as zinc, taurine, choline, vitamin B6 (Lara Briden). Others say that a whole foods plant-based diet (with a B12 supplement) can provide all the nutrients women need, including zinc, taurine, choline, vitamin B6 (Nutrition Facts). It’s easy to feel confused!

  • There is no need to take any nutritional supplement, or eat animal proteins. Intestinal microbes produce all B vitamins, including B 12! Metagenomic analysis has predicted that Bacteroides fragilis and Prevotella copri (Bacteroidetes); Clostridium difficile, Faecalibacterium prausnitzii and Ruminococcus lactaris (Firmicutes); Bifidobacterium animalis, B.infantis, and B.longum (Actinobacteria); Fusobacterium varium (Fusobacteria) possess a vitamin B12 biosynthesis pathway. Indeed, Lactobacillus plantarum and L. coryniformis isolated from fermented food produce vitamin B12, and Bifidobacterium animalis synthesizes vitamin B12 during milk fermentation. Thanks for your watching!

  • I am sure these clips are taken out of context: https://youtu.be/OR9jIVKSJ4k Have you done a reply video on it? Respect on the visectomy, antinatalism is morally sound.

  • I live in Texas and I only take vitamin B12 once a week. You can literally get everything else from plants its really not that complicated like this video may sound to any new vegans out there. Long as you eat enough food on a plant based diet you should be fine its all natural nutrition.

  • hello, im looking at your videos, and i love them.
    i have a question,,, im taking just a vegan supplement called one a day by DEVA and omega-3 called ovega-3:-) just wanted to know if thats enough or should i take each vitamin by separate?
    have a nice day, and hope you can answer me

  • I take a b12 supplement with 1000 mcg a day. idk if thats too much but its smol so haha! and a vegan womens supplement with a ton of stuff with every main meal.

  • Why are you supplementing what you call (humans natural diet). Good for all stages of life isn’t it. Stop supplementing, I want to see what happens on your natural diet without them. Condolences to your family

  • Well, Pamela Popper doesnt agree at all on vit.D (which is an hormone like insulin) and most others supplement and she is based on studies also:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbrxSCSaSUM

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzNbMYp82lE

  • This video helped me so much! I was very confused about what supplements and vitamins I should be taking to replace proteins and vital nutrients and this answered everything, thanks so much:) You have a beautiful smile also.

  • I don’t know who to believe it’s actually kind of disgusting. Pam popper just released the video today citing study after study of the dangers of taking vitamin d. Johnny says apples Peter says oranges I just don’t know it’s absolutely disgusting. These doctors are supposed to be helping us all they’re doing is confusing the s*** out of us. They need to get their s*** together and come up with one message. you can’t have one doctor citing study after study about how dangerous something is and the other doctor cites study after study about how wonderful it is. I’m beginning to think they’re all full of s***

  • I want to correct something: it’s misleading to say B12 is naturally found in animal products. It isn’t created by animals, it’s a type of bacterium they ingest that are found in the environmenton grasses and plants they eat, and the water they drink. We’d get it too, but our produce is all sanitized and water chlorinated. Livestock are often supplemented with B12 anyway. So people who think vegan is unnatural isn’t thinking big picture. If we lived naturally in the wild vegan would be the most natural:)

  • This really is some pretty good information:) thanks for that:) I would love love looooove if you could make a video about your exercise routine; especially your arms. I like your toned arms:D sorry if that sounds freaky… 

  • Any diet that requires supplements is an unfit diet for human consumption. You said it yourself, a vegan diet will kill you if there are no access to supplements.

  • Dr. Campbell has changed his position recently to a multi-vitamin as we may take too much B-12. Too much of anything can be detrimental.

  • You’re very sweet Jenne, thanks for sharing your story. However supplements can be harmful and most of the time they’re useless. The best supplement is in the whole foods.

    I recommend everyone PLEASE do your research and ask your plant based doctor before you take any supplement. You can research taking supplements on nutritionfacts. org and drmcdougall. com

    ●Vitamin C is in whole variety of foods as you knew
    ●Vitamin B is in sublingual B tablets or nutritional yeast etc
    ●Dha, EPA comes from dark leafy plants so you can get your omega 3 from plants, walnuts, flax seeds it will turn to dha and epa. Source: pcrm. org
    ●And about zinc I will recommend eating plant based foods as well such as nuts and seeds (mustard seeds) and legumes and so on

  • ive been on a plant based diet for two years, no supplements, i did some blood work checked my b12 recently, and it was normal, is that possible?

  • This is the first video I’ve came across of you. I found you cause I’m looking for the right vitamin(s) to take. I’m a vegetarian and noticed that I’ve been getting sick easily since becoming one. Before cutting out meat, I never got sick. So I know it has to do with some type of deficiency my body is facing. Would you recommend just B-12? I keep hearing about that… Or a B complex like you use in the video. By the way, I love your energy!

  • This video helped me so much! I was very confused about what supplements and vitamins I should be taking to replace proteins and vital nutrients and this answered everything, thanks so much:) You have a beautiful smile also.

  • So, you only take the vitamin b complex? I’ve tried going vegan from vegetarian many times but it’s difficult because of the fear of a deficiency. So I guess I’m askingis the complex all that’s needed to cover it? Thanks!

  • Good grief these Vegan Doctors worry too much( I suppose that comes with the territory of being a Doctor), one day they recommend taking DHA then the next thing you know they change their minds! Then say take Omega 3 which is plentiful in Hemp, Flax and other seeds, and in plant foods in general.

  • This is the first video I’ve came across of you. I found you cause I’m looking for the right vitamin(s) to take.

  • Love your videos. Found it ‘by accident’ and watch over 5 videos. Please, keep it up. I just started the vegan lifestyle. It helps me a lot to get more into it. Your voice is really nice and calm. You got yourself a fan!

  • I started a vegan meal prep you tube channel. The recipes are easy,
    delicious, and practical. If anyone reading this can check out my
    channel and subscribe if you like the content it would be a huge help.
    Thanks guys, the vegan community is great!

  • B12 seems to be changing with some people like Nelson and Pam Popper’s latest video says vitamin D supplements may have a negative effect on things like bone density.

  • Hi, Richard. Could you post your blood test results some time? Just curious. I’m taking a multivitamin and I’d like to see for myself the results of taking 2 or 3 vitamins instead.

  • No need to take B12 suplements, if ye are heavily addicted to monster energy, which has 500% of the daily recommended dose per can hehehe

  • Hi jenne thank you for your videos they are so helpful for me because im gradually getting away from meat and other foods that are causing me and im been looking at Dr. Sebi food guide for guidance to an healthier lifestyle with no meat or meat products i have an question for you even though im vegan yet but can still take vegan supplements if you are not vegan? because im an deficient because i lost so much blood last year

  • For the most part I do not have any confidence in supplements. They are not regulated. I am in the American Northwest and everyone here is Vitamin D deficient, but not iodine deficient. I am on a whole food plant-based diet and I do pretty well most of the time.

  • Hi Jenné:) do you still take all these supplements or do you have a updated version? I definitely need some and would love some recommendations ( Europe based, but I can order).Thanks in advance!

  • Big thanks to HealthCell for supporting Plant Based News. Healthy Cell, are the makers of ‘Vegan Essentials’ a badass multivitamin gel. Find out more: https://www.healthycell.com/pbn and use the code ‘PBN’ to get 20% off your first order.

  • Plant based Dr’s reveal bogus supplement myths >>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73LuDqaN-5Y, also plant based Dr’s, you need to take these supplements…

  • I’m not a vegan, and I’ve never taken supplements, and I’m not going to start. I’m considering going vegan but if I’ve got to supplement to get adequate vitamin B12, maybe veganism is not for me?

  • You guys are awesome! Thanks for the info! I would love to get more sea veggies (for iodine) in my diet (I do spirulina 2x per day) so Im good with the one but the dulse and nori make me gag. I think Im more likely to be consistent with a sea veggies supplement than on my salad. Do you have any suggestions for this? Thank you for doing what you do!:)

  • So, you only take the vitamin b complex? I’ve tried going vegan from vegetarian many times but it’s difficult because of the fear of a deficiency. So I guess I’m askingis the complex all that’s needed to cover it? Thanks!

  • Thank you for including this video. I’m vegan and always try to be conscious of the foods that I need to have a proper nutrition. I’m not an athlete but I do keep active. I feel amazing, recently had blood work done and my results were within the normal range. Oh, and for a 47 year old I will say I look pretty darn good!

  • For anyone who want to get a decent source of Iodine without taking a supplement or experiencing the gross taste of seaweed I’d recommend blending dried Wakame with a few black pepper corns. Then pour the powder into a soup or stew. It just adds a slightly salty/peppery taste without the fishy seaweed taste. It took me a long time to realise the best way to took seaweed so thought this might be useful to someone.

    20-30g Dried Wakame per day should be enough for adequate Iodine. (3.5g per day)

    Also It might be best to avoid consuming Iodine on the same day as you take your B12. As Iodine contains b12 analogues that may inhibit the absorption of B12.

  • I think this video just makes everything more confusing, and if you are not vegan it sounds like you can never get enough nutrients on a vegan diet..

    Have been vegan wfpb for 5 years, excellent health, only take b12 and vit D

  • I have currently been vegan for 3 months now. Doing the first month and half I was energized but now am feeling drained. I got my blood testing back and my vitamin D is low and close to being a deficiency, my b 12 was a 313 which is close the starting level of 200, and vitamin A was 39 which is one point from starting level of 38. My doctor hasn’t given me any supplements. He said me levels are normal except vitamin D. I’m looking into taking vitamins and was looking for a multivitamin or something. I’m not sure what to do but I am having issues as well neurologically that I didn’t have before I went vegan ��. Being vegan has help a lot of my other health issues significantly and will be fine if I can get my nutrients balanced and normal again. Any suggestions?

  • Well, Pamela Popper doesnt agree at all on vit.D (which is an hormone like insulin) and most others supplement and she is based on studies also:

  • We have iodized salt. I eat flaxseeds and chia seeds for omega3. Almost 4 years vegan. Only started taking b12 and D3 for last few months. Did my whole blood test done last month.
    Zinc, iron, protein, b12, d, calcium, creatine and the whole shebang is just fine.
    Just b12 and D3 I take. Thanks!

  • I started a vegan meal prep you tube channel. The recipes are easy,

    Thanks guys, the vegan community is great!

  • I ended up going with Exceed Protein powder by Nutral, as it has all of the V&M’s that I need inc. B12 and calcium. Tastes pretty good too https://nutral.co.uk/yt/exceed

  • My favorite nutrient is DULSE (which is the most popular species of seaweed) which is red in color and salty which is packed with nutritional minerals of which I buy in bulk from Maine Seacoast Vegetables at 430 Washington Junction Hancock, Maine (207)4120094. Dave Wachsman a sustainable user and customer of this product and animal free user of all products.

  • Hi Guys, I know this is off the subject but can you advise me. Ive just got a second rescue dog, she’s big and she looks like a lab. The problem is the hair!! my other dog is low shedding so its a huge change for me to have dog hair to deal with. Do you have any tips? Im hoovering all the time. Your place looks so sharp and clean i’m wondering how you cope. Do you let them on your bed? Thank you

  • Richard, what about “250 mg daily of pollutant free (yeastor algae-derived) long-chain omega-3’s (EPA/DHA)
    ” that Dr. Michael Greger recommends on his website?

  • Great information!! Please share your knowledge on vitamin D3 and vitamin K2. I know vit D3 is important but I’ve heard vit k2 needs to be taken with it. I really would appreciate more information the correct dose of each. Thank you.

  • Yo boy, I noticed in a video you said you were getting some psychotic symptoms which couldve been caused by b12 deficiency etc I wanted to tell.you that you should differ pyschosis per se and hallucinations that occur due to neuro disruptions

  • Get bloods done. Simple. I don’t lack b12. Only thing I lacked when I did the latest blood test was vitamin d…as I live in England haha. Everyone should check their bloods. Don’t start popping stuff and guess what you think you need. Eat a balanced diet. Simple.

  • Thanks for the information, Please lets praise ourselves for living a vegan lifestyle but also acknowledge that not all vegans eat the healthiest foods. Vegan processed and fast foods are for sale everywhere but that does not mean they are healthy. These products are loaded with sodium and sometimes high in oils and many are made from genetically modified ingredients. Eat whole foods, hopefully organic, vegetables, fruits, grains, beans, nuts and seeds. MOST people are low in magnesium and many are low in Zinc, most people are low in B12, not just vegans. peace..

  • PLANT BASED NEWS + Creatine is not Vegan. Creatine is found in vertebrates where it facilitates recycling of adenosine triphosphate, the energy currency of the cell, primarily in muscle and brain tissue.

  • I heard that ADHD people need more EPA than DHA. Do you know of any brand of vegan pill or liquid that contains more EPA than DHA? Or do you know of a vegan EPA-only supplement, so that the easier-to-find pills that contain more DHA than EPA (because they are marketed to people who want to improve their heart health instead of their brain health) can continue to be taken, but just take the EPA-only pill as well each day? Like maybe cut the heart-health pill in half, and then eat the EPA-only pill, and do this everyday?

  • I appreciate the video that does not downplay veganism. I have been vegan for 10 years. Eat lots of whole grains and my CRP is.4 so very low inflammation and I do CrossFit (so a lot of muscle inflammation so to speak yet my CRP remains low) about 4 times a week. I don’t do protein supplements and recover quite fast. Apparently greens help reduce muscle inflammation and damage according to NIH. I eat pinto beans, and other vegetable and berries, I don’t cook with oil and try to avoid high saturated fat foods, eat nuts rarely. My cholesterol went down from 210 to 144. My LDL 72. At almost 40 I feel like I am 20. Plant-based diet reversed a clogged artery and needed not stent in that artery post heart attack. Dr. Essylsten has the right plan for heart attack prevention. Rember looking cut does not mean having healthy arteries. Thomas glad you do put veganism in a positive light.

  • Hey Klaus, @plantbasednews Dr. Klaper no longer recommends DHA supplements because they have been linked to aggressive cancer, especially prostate cancer in men. He is actively retracting that recommendation now, trying to get the word out. Please edit the video so people are not misinformed. Jeff Nelson at VegSource channel has this video there, along with others on the series reviewing the studies and what experts say. I recommend watching all of them. Here is his short video on it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lTy-BSCGP8 There is another video of Dr. Klaper on VegSource channel that goes into more detail, along with the other videos Jeff made on the topic. I took DHA for years. And I stopped when I saw these.

  • Vegans do produce B12, but it is excreted rather than absorbed, and you would have to eat your own feces to absorb the B12, in the way many herbivores do to take in unabsorbed nutrients.

  • Great video! Hey That’s the B12 brand I use delicious spray! I also take D3 supplement how much vitamin D3 you take? Will definitely look into DHA/EPA Thanks!

  • I have poor cognitive functioning and also believe that my cortisol levels are high and have heard omega 3’s help with those. Is there any information about which dosage ranges are recommended and is there any side effects from taking higher amounts? I dislike lower dosage studies because sometimes dosages studied are too low and they say theyre ineffective, but dosage always matters.

  • We have iodized salt. I eat flaxseeds and chia seeds for omega3. Almost 4 years vegan. Only started taking b12 and D3 for last few months. Did my whole blood test done last month.
    Zinc, iron, protein, b12, d, calcium, creatine and the whole shebang is just fine.
    Just b12 and D3 I take. Thanks!

  • Thank you for including this video. I’m vegan and always try to be conscious of the foods that I need to have a proper nutrition. I’m not an athlete but I do keep active. I feel amazing, recently had blood work done and my results were within the normal range. Oh, and for a 47 year old I will say I look pretty darn good!

  • I take B12, Iodine, K-2, D3, E, Zinc, and Calcium with Magnesium. I decided on all these supplements after tracking my nutrition on the Chronometer app. I’m whole foods plant based and probably don’t need so many but I’m shooting for ideal levels. I take two of them daily and the rest twice weekly.

  • My favorite supplements are full spectrum black seed oil and full spectrum hemp seed oil along with turmeric root and ginger root supplement capsules along with a one a day I also drink herbal teas like green tea peppermint tea and cinnamon stick with a little bit of coconut oil and honey

  • I think it does the movement harm to be talking about supplements, especially Omega 3, I can just hear the Omnis attacking saying ‘see you need to eat fish’ why else would you take Omega 3 supplements?

  • PLANT BASED NEWS + Creatine is not Vegan. Creatine is found in vertebrates where it facilitates recycling of adenosine triphosphate, the energy currency of the cell, primarily in muscle and brain tissue.

  • For the most part I do not have any confidence in supplements. They are not regulated. I am in the American Northwest and everyone here is Vitamin D deficient, but not iodine deficient. I am on a whole food plant-based diet and I do pretty well most of the time.

  • I’ve heard that some are deficient in Vit. A, Magnesium and Folate. I put organic pureed pumpkin in my morning shake often for A, a mag. supp. after my evening meal, and a multi. Vit. B that has folate in it not folic acid.

  • I don’t know who to believe it’s actually kind of disgusting. Pam popper just released the video today citing study after study of the dangers of taking vitamin d. Johnny says apples Peter says oranges I just don’t know it’s absolutely disgusting. These doctors are supposed to be helping us all they’re doing is confusing the s*** out of us. They need to get their s*** together and come up with one message. you can’t have one doctor citing study after study about how dangerous something is and the other doctor cites study after study about how wonderful it is. I’m beginning to think they’re all full of s***

  • “People on plant-based diets are susceptible to being B12 deficient”.

    Wow. VeganGains admits there are disadvantages in being completely meat-free in your diet and that there are actual advantages of including meat in your diet lol.

    Haven’t checked his YouTube channel over 3 years now, so may be he was pushed into this over-time with hard-science.

    I guess it doesn’t matter though since people can just squirt supplements under their tongue and never really miss out on the natural benefits of eating meat.

  • I agree with with almost everything. Iodine is not difficult to obtain. I checked my level recently and I got optimal results just by consuming the right sea vegetables, but I also know that most people don’t eat those regularly. Also, it doesn’t seem to be up to date as Dr Klaper has stopped recommending DHA supplements, although I agree with the rest of the doctors, as when I tested my Omega 6&3 ratios it was not good at all, despite consuming ground flaxseed and walnuts on a daily basis, and following a WFPB diet for a few years. Perhaps I was intaking too much of it, but now I’m trying with no more than 2 table spoons of it and an EPA + DHA supplement from algae oil, and I’ll re-test in a few months.
    Vitamin B12 is a must in a sanitised society, and if you don’t get enough sun exposure and/or consume mushrooms exposed to UV often vitamin D3 is highly recommendable too.

  • My favorite supplements are full spectrum black seed oil and full spectrum hemp seed oil along with turmeric root and ginger root supplement capsules along with a one a day I also drink herbal teas like green tea peppermint tea and cinnamon stick with a little bit of coconut oil and honey

  • Love this. Only question I have is this tho: Can we say being vegan is completely sustainable if i have to take supplements because I’m not able to get all of my nutrients through food?

  • I just came upon your channel and I’m loving it! Thank you for your time and effort. As a mom I need ideas to feed my kids healthy foods. Do you have any kid vegan recipes? Hugs, Zoe

  • Great information!! Please share your knowledge on vitamin D3 and vitamin K2. I know vit D3 is important but I’ve heard vit k2 needs to be taken with it. I really would appreciate more information the correct dose of each. Thank you.

  • I do a three a day bio natural whole foods vitamin I get off Amazon for 20 bucks every 1 or two months

    I personally don’t like those multi packets. It seems like a waste of plastic

  • Love your videos……you’re both so beautiful inside and out.  I just found out the vitamins I’m taking has bovine in the gelatin capsule…. this distresses me a lot…….. any advice for me?

  • Vegans do produce B12, but it is excreted rather than absorbed, and you would have to eat your own feces to absorb the B12, in the way many herbivores do to take in unabsorbed nutrients.

    https://veganhealth.org/intestinal-bacteria-as-b12-source/

  • Thanks for this. It was super helpful. I’ve been plant based now for 2 1/2 years and I’ve always been anti supplements (and anti pills, in general) but, I think it’s time to give it the ole college try and see how I feel.

  • Eating Allium Vegetables with these foods improves mineral absorption, specifically zinc goes up by about 25% to 50%. IE: Garlic, or Onions, Scallion, Shallot, Leek, or Chives. It has been said that Phytic acid can prevent absorption of zinc in people that aren’t use to eating a lot of foods high in Phytic Acid. This effect usually goes away once the body adapts to higher levels of Phytic Acid. But Phytic Acid can also be reduced by: Soaking, Boiling, Fermenting, and Sprouting. Eating Spices, especially Black Pepper improves Vitamin and Mineral absorption. Eating small amounts of fatty foods with fat-soluble vitamins improves absorption of fat-soluble vitamins: A, D, E, and K/K2.

    But as for what supplements people should take it depends, par B12 as everyone should be supplementing B12. New evidence shows that some plant sources might actually have it in naturally, so in the future people might just need to eat more of these plant based sources of B12. But there isn’t enough data to say for sure yet.

    Vitamin D3 is needed in the winter, early spring, and late Autumn as this is usually when there isn’t much sun. If one lives close to the equate they don’t need to take Vitamin D3.

    Some people struggle to get enough Iodine, as for vegans the only real source is Seaweed or fortified foods. If one buys some dulse flakes and sprinkle that on their food they will get enough Iodine, they could even use kelp, but use a very tiny amount of kelp less then an 1/8th of a teaspoon, as kelp is so high in iodine, kelp is useful to eat if one lives in a warmer or more radioactive environments. Nori is a good seaweed to eat too but they would need to check how much iodine is in a sheet to make sure they get enough Iodine for the day.

    Men need more zinc then women and so men should make sure they’re eating enough zinc, but if they don’t think they will get enough zinc they could supplement zinc too. Zinc can be found in: Oats, Lentils, Tofu, Whole Grains, Bread, Beans, Chickpeas, and Hemp Seeds. If eaten with Black Pepper and Allum Vegetables people will absorb Zinc better too.

    Some women need Iron supplements, some women do better on a vegan diet and get more iron, it depends. One can get Iron from: Chickpeas, Oats, Chia Seeds, Raisins, Houmous, Beans, Lentils, Whole Grains, and Mushrooms. Iron is absorbed better when mixed with vitamin C. Vitamin C is found in: Raw Bell Peppers, Pineapple, Cooked Broccoli, and Passion Fruit. Getting Iron from plants plus Vitamin C is much better controlled by the body, meaning it’s healthier to get Iron from plant sources over animal sources. Plant Iron is converted into Heme Iron in the body when needed. They can also eat Allium Vegetables and Black Pepper with these foods to raise absorption as well.

    DHA is only needed when people eat a lot of fat in their diet, and don’t eat flax seeds or chia seeds often. If one gets a good balance of omega 3 to omega 6, Between 1 to 1 ratio, and one part omega 3 to four parts omega 6, then the brain will produce enough DHA, but if one eats a lot of margarine and uses a lot of oils high in omega 6, it’s going to be harder for their brain to make DHA and EPA. In which one should supplement DHA and EPA, if they are eating a lot of junk food, and not a whole food plant based diet like the Daily Dozen.

    No one needs to supplement protein, par maybe athletes that want to gain muscle, but know that doing this might actually end up being unhealthy for the body long term, as one puts more toil on the body.

    If you’re not sure if you get enough nutrients you can sort of use cronometer to get an idea, but it would only be estimates, but it should give you enough of an idea as long as you get regular sources from food your body should store up what you need to some degree so long as you’re always getting some, at least 2 thirds of the RDA regular, as a lot of what is on there is estimates some fresh or frozen whole foods might actually be a lot higher then the estimations. Or just follow the Daily Dozen and take a the supplements I said above based on eating habits.

  • With proper supplementation SOME people can thrive long term on a vegan diet, but many cannot due to biological differences. There has never been a vegan society in history, humans are omnivores. In nature there is no life without death. Most vegans have little direct connection with nature. Add organ meats, eggs, oysters, sardines to what is recommended here and most will thrive for decades.

  • Yo boy, I noticed in a video you said you were getting some psychotic symptoms which couldve been caused by b12 deficiency etc I wanted to tell.you that you should differ pyschosis per se and hallucinations that occur due to neuro disruptions

  • I have currently been vegan for 3 months now. Doing the first month and half I was energized but now am feeling drained. I got my blood testing back and my vitamin D is low and close to being a deficiency, my b 12 was a 313 which is close the starting level of 200, and vitamin A was 39 which is one point from starting level of 38. My doctor hasn’t given me any supplements. He said me levels are normal except vitamin D. I’m looking into taking vitamins and was looking for a multivitamin or something. I’m not sure what to do but I am having issues as well neurologically that I didn’t have before I went vegan ��. Being vegan has help a lot of my other health issues significantly and will be fine if I can get my nutrients balanced and normal again. Any suggestions?

  • I want to correct something: it’s misleading to say B12 is naturally found in animal products. It isn’t created by animals, it’s a type of bacterium they ingest that are found in the environmenton grasses and plants they eat, and the water they drink. We’d get it too, but our produce is all sanitized and water chlorinated. Livestock are often supplemented with B12 anyway. So people who think vegan is unnatural isn’t thinking big picture. If we lived naturally in the wild vegan would be the most natural:)

  • Vegans? LOL!

    You can get all the vitamins and minerals you need just from eating meat and vegetables.

    These vegans that have to supplement to get get B12, you think that would be a clue?

  • Hi,

    I’m starting a transition into veganism. For a beginner, what vitamins should I take to transition? Should I start with the vitamins you just listed?

  • You might not see this because the video is older, but what order do you take them?? like do you take them all together? at certain times? like I wanna buy all these but when do I take /use them?

  • B12 seems to be changing with some people like Nelson and Pam Popper’s latest video says vitamin D supplements may have a negative effect on things like bone density.

  • If you need to take supplements on a vegan diet to replace the missing vitamins your not getting from meat which is essential to sustain human life, then I guess it’s not the superior diet. How about a balanced one.

  • Good grief these Vegan Doctors worry too much( I suppose that comes with the territory of being a Doctor), one day they recommend taking DHA then the next thing you know they change their minds! Then say take Omega 3 which is plentiful in Hemp, Flax and other seeds, and in plant foods in general.

  • Hi jenne thank you for your videos they are so helpful for me because im gradually getting away from meat and other foods that are causing me and im been looking at Dr. Sebi food guide for guidance to an healthier lifestyle with no meat or meat products i have an question for you even though im vegan yet but can still take vegan supplements if you are not vegan? because im an deficient because i lost so much blood last year

  • Love your videos……you’re both so beautiful inside and out.  I just found out the vitamins I’m taking has bovine in the gelatin capsule…. this distresses me a lot…….. any advice for me?

  • I’m not a vegan, and I’ve never taken supplements, and I’m not going to start. I’m considering going vegan but if I’ve got to supplement to get adequate vitamin B12, maybe veganism is not for me?

  • Dr. Campbell has changed his position recently to a multi-vitamin as we may take too much B-12. Too much of anything can be detrimental.

  • The Japanese commercial was definitely more entertaining than you were vegan Gaines you’re a fucking tool you’re embarrassing as a Canadian and a failure as a human being you’re right we shouldn’t hunt animals we should just hunt morons like you vegan Gaines what a fucking joke you were dropped on your head as a child where are you

  • Hey guys it’s me vegangains you know I am the YouTuber that got drop as kid a lot so here some of my supplements here’s one of them steroids is very nutritious and it basically makes your muscles ten times more Bigger and trust me It not a drug at all

  • Thank you so much for making this video! I recently went vegan and I started to feel so fatigued and so sluggish and I could not realize why this was, I figured it was the detox part however I have no energy to do anything. After doing further research I see that begins need to supplement with B 12, I am wondering when do you see changes after you start to supplement with increased energy?

  • Hey guys it’s me vegangains you know I am the YouTuber that got drop as kid a lot so here some of my supplements here’s one of them steroids is very nutritious and it basically makes your muscles ten times more Bigger and trust me It not a drug at all

  • Great video. Where can I find more information about the “sheep’s wool” in vitamins? Yuk!!! I had no idea.  I try to buy all natural vitamins. I don’t take many vitamins but when I do, I would like to get the best if I could afford it.

  • I live in Texas and I only take vitamin B12 once a week. You can literally get everything else from plants its really not that complicated like this video may sound to any new vegans out there. Long as you eat enough food on a plant based diet you should be fine its all natural nutrition.

  • It really doesn’t matter how much sun you get if its the wrong time of year in the wrong geographic location. You can stand anywhere in Canada but naked at high noon for an hour September March and you will make zero hormone D because you need uv b and no uv b makes it to the earth’s surface.

  • I’m not sure on the amount of b12 to be taking, is one 1,000mcg tablet once a week ideal? What is ideal? The really high doses (2500, 5000, 6000mcg+) do make me nervous.

  • 2000 vitamin D is what Michael Gregor suggest to take. 4,000 if you are overweight or obese apparently. if you live in places where you cant get those UV I believe its 4000 as well. Put Nutritionfacts.Org vitamin D on youtube.

  • Great video. Where can I find more information about the “sheep’s wool” in vitamins? Yuk!!! I had no idea.  I try to buy all natural vitamins. I don’t take many vitamins but when I do, I would like to get the best if I could afford it.

  • I am a raw vegan For 2 years now. We currently are on lock down due to the covid19 pandemic and I wanted to share these Nutrilite vitamin D supplements for immune and bone health that ARE ACTUALLY VEGAN. Made of Mushrooms!I just ordered my second bottle, they are amazing, Check them out! https://www.amway.com/en_US/Shop/Nutrition/Vitamins-%26-Supplements/Targeted/Nutrilite%26trade%3B-Vitamin-D/p/119346

  • I think that supplement you are advertising is way off. Like… Too much stuff in too much quantity. Totaly unnecessary and at points dangerous, like look at all that iron and at that little b12…….

  • Guys, Dr Greger recommends 4 Brazil nuts per month, not one per day!

  • Omega 3’s I get from hemp seeds or chia seeds. Both are very high in omega 3. And the DHA I get comes from spirulina that i grow in two aquariums in my kitchen. As for other supplements I’ll tell you what I take. Silica is one of the most overlooked minerals that our bodies need. So I take Silica every day. Also, I like MSM. MSM contributes to amazing skin and helps to rebuild collagen. If you’re older then 40 you know how important this is. Now I do take other supplements as well. I love cordyceps but I buy this in bulk and make my own pills. Also, DMG is good for anyone over 40 because this is a molecule that is produced in our livers that we stop making as we get older. it’s amazing stuff. And, of course, I take a good source of chlorella. I love the stuff. Between Chlorella, Spirulina, etc. most of my nutritional needs are met.

  • That doctor had a quote but i cant seem to remember what it is EVERYONE LIKES TO HEAR GOOD NEWS OF THEIR BAD HABITS… or something like that

  • Collard greens are low oxalate. So are all the lettuces. Beans, nuts, and seeds are also high in oxalates. I know, because I’m a vegan on a low oxalate diet due to massive kidney stones. Any of the pea family and lentils are all ok, too, including chickpeas. Just so you know…

  • The science doesn’t agree with Dr Klaper, Dr Greger and all the doctors that recommend Vitamin D here’s a video from a contributor to plant based news https://youtu.be/JbrxSCSaSUM

  • Which form of B12 is best is a bit controversial. Dr. Gregor recommends Cyanocobalamin because Methylcobalamin isn’t shelf stable and in studies it has NOT been shown to reverse B12 deficiency. So there is some risk in taking this form. Cyanocobalamin is shelf stable and has been well studied to effectively reverse B12 deficiency. Some people are concerned about trace amounts of cyanide in cyanocobalamin, but these amounts are so miniscule, they are not at all dangerous and far less than even eating some flax seeds. If you want to be extra safe you could take both forms of B12 so you know your body is getting what it needs!

  • I take wild salmon oil, multiviatamin, all from trader joe, going vegan seem tough I love o eat everything lol, u rr a strong girl  to go vegan

  • I have been vegetarian all my life and vegan for a long time, same goes for my family (vegetarian). Never took any supplements so I don’t know why there’s sudden increase in supplements.

  • Hi Please can you do an info session on weight training, how much vs cardiovascular training. what is essential for good health, retaining muscle and bone mass and for good blood circulation and preventing diabetes.
    Also, some advice on slow motion strength training and its benefits.

  • Creatine Monohydrate (from Creapure(r)) changed my life, like rescued me, a total game changer. I take it every day and it blows my mind every day how good it is. Had muscle weakness and mal-sensations most of my life, all gone.

    The angle of the earth in the winter doesn’t allow uvb rays to reach the ground, and that is what causes you to produce vitamin d.

    if you live above that line and don’t have any food or supplement source of vitd than you are vitamin d deficient, like most people in the winter

  • I’m planning to start taking supplements. Would it be ok to start taking a few each day all at once, or is it something that you need to ease into?

  • Hi Jenné:) do you still take all these supplements or do you have a updated version? I definitely need some and would love some recommendations ( Europe based, but I can order).Thanks in advance!

  • Love your videos!! I know this is a bit of an older one but I hope you see my comment. Quick question -what is your take on carrageenan? I looked into Ovega and it has carrageenan in it. I’m curious about your viewpoints on it or any resources you might suggest to learn more about it (a lot of what I’ve seen online suggests that carrageenan causes inflammation and has been linked to insulin resistance, among other not so ideal side effects). Thanks!!

  • I take a kelp iodine supplement, an algae omega supplement, B12, D3 and calcium with magnesium. But I take the low end amount on calcium, D3 and Omegas. I’m outside every day, but I live in the PNW, so, it’s not sunny every day. When it is sunny, I get some exposure on my arms for a bit before applying my non nano vegan subscreen.

  • I agree with with almost everything. Iodine is not difficult to obtain.

  • I take a b12 supplement with 1000 mcg a day. idk if thats too much but its smol so haha! and a vegan womens supplement with a ton of stuff with every main meal.

  • You’re very sweet Jenne, thanks for sharing your story. However supplements can be harmful and most of the time they’re useless. The best supplement is in the whole foods.

    I recommend everyone PLEASE do your research and ask your plant based doctor before you take any supplement. You can research taking supplements on nutritionfacts. org and drmcdougall. com

    ●Vitamin C is in whole variety of foods as you knew
    ●Vitamin B is in sublingual B tablets or nutritional yeast etc
    ●Dha, EPA comes from dark leafy plants so you can get your omega 3 from plants, walnuts, flax seeds it will turn to dha and epa. Source: pcrm. org
    ●And about zinc I will recommend eating plant based foods as well such as nuts and seeds (mustard seeds) and legumes and so on

  • Get bloods done. Simple. I don’t lack b12. Only thing I lacked when I did the latest blood test was vitamin d…as I live in England haha. Everyone should check their bloods. Don’t start popping stuff and guess what you think you need. Eat a balanced diet. Simple.

  • Oh, I just realized that I completely forgot to chat about zinc (luckily did remember to include it in the article though)! What vegan supplements do you take?

  • This is such an old video, I wonder if you’d still comment on this but I wonder, do you take all your supplements in one sitting? And is there some kind of time frame between each daily dose, like do you have to take them a certain amount of hours after your last dose? Also, thank you so much for this video, I’m fairly new to supplements and often intimidated because I break out easily and have broken out taken supplements before.

  • Which form of B12 is best is a bit controversial. Dr. Gregor recommends Cyanocobalamin because Methylcobalamin isn’t shelf stable and in studies it has NOT been shown to reverse B12 deficiency. So there is some risk in taking this form. Cyanocobalamin is shelf stable and has been well studied to effectively reverse B12 deficiency. Some people are concerned about trace amounts of cyanide in cyanocobalamin, but these amounts are so miniscule, they are not at all dangerous and far less than even eating some flax seeds. If you want to be extra safe you could take both forms of B12 so you know your body is getting what it needs!

  • Protein is in everything, its really hard to find someone with a protein deficiency in the US. Animal protein is a lot more unhealthy than plant protein because the different levels of amino acids can cause cancer.

  • Any diet that requires supplements is an unfit diet for human consumption. You said it yourself, a vegan diet will kill you if there are no access to supplements.

  • hello, im looking at your videos, and i love them.
    i have a question,,, im taking just a vegan supplement called one a day by DEVA and omega-3 called ovega-3:-) just wanted to know if thats enough or should i take each vitamin by separate?
    have a nice day, and hope you can answer me

  • Hello. Can I ask which supplement of b12 do you give your infant? I have a 7.5 months old and I am doing my research. I just ordered the one from garden of life but the company says it’s not suitable for kids. Thank you in advance

  • There is no need for supplements, especially not for people that eat as healthy as you. With supplements you train your body that there is always huge amounts of for example Vit.C and it gets dependent. Better train your bodies natural ability to use the nutrients of natural foods efficient. Greets & LOVE from Germany:)

  • I’ll say it for the people in the back

    MEAT DOES NOT cause heart disease and all the other quacky claims vegans make. Processed food does. When studied unprocessed meat consumption, there were no finding that meat causes diseases more than any other diet.

  • No need to take B12 suplements, if ye are heavily addicted to monster energy, which has 500% of the daily recommended dose per can hehehe

    #healthyvegan

  • I take a kelp iodine supplement, an algae omega supplement, B12, D3 and calcium with magnesium. But I take the low end amount on calcium, D3 and Omegas. I’m outside every day, but I live in the PNW, so, it’s not sunny every day. When it is sunny, I get some exposure on my arms for a bit before applying my non nano vegan subscreen.

  • I hope you see this comment BUT I have a question. Can I be able to take all of these vitamins and take a daily multivitamin? Please answer

  • If you need to take supplements on a vegan diet to replace the missing vitamins your not getting from meat which is essential to sustain human life, then I guess it’s not the superior diet. How about a balanced one.

  • I’m planning to start taking supplements. Would it be ok to start taking a few each day all at once, or is it something that you need to ease into?

  • I hope you see this comment BUT I have a question. Can I be able to take all of these vitamins and take a daily multivitamin? Please answer

  • It really doesn’t matter how much sun you get if its the wrong time of year in the wrong geographic location. You can stand anywhere in Canada but naked at high noon for an hour September March and you will make zero hormone D because you need uv b and no uv b makes it to the earth’s surface.

  • Veggies & More thanks for this helpful video. I take Veg1 multivitamin containing Vitamins B2, B6, B12, D3, Folic Acid, Iodine and Selenium, and I also take Magnesium and Iron.
    I have been researching plant based eating and women’s nutritional needs as I developed bad PMS recently. It hasn’t been easy as there is lots of conflicting info out there. Some are saying that an exclusively plant-based diet can impair ovulation and cause nutrient deficiency of some key brain-health nutrients that cannot be obtained in sufficient amounts from plant foods, such as zinc, taurine, choline, vitamin B6 (Lara Briden). Others say that a whole foods plant-based diet (with a B12 supplement) can provide all the nutrients women need, including zinc, taurine, choline, vitamin B6 (Nutrition Facts). It’s easy to feel confused!

  • Oh, I just realized that I completely forgot to chat about zinc (luckily did remember to include it in the article though)! What vegan supplements do you take?

  • Just fyi for anyone who doesn’t know this. Fish do not produce Omega-3’s. Similarly to humans, they have to consume it. The only known true source of Omega-3’s is algae. Only algae actually produce Omega-3’s. All other life forms get it from consuming the algae directly or consuming it from a recycled source like sea animals. So rather than taking a fish based Omega 3, it makes more sense to take it from the true source and just consume an algae based Omega supplement. Vegans who already eat a high amount of sea vegetables in their diet, don’t really need to supplement. While I was living in Asia, I was eating a ton of different algae on a daily basis. However, now that I am back in the US, I supplement with an algae based supplement.

  • I just started taking ovega-3 and I like it so far. And I have to take a lot of iron because although I get enough in my food, my stores are really low, so I have to build that up.

  • Thanks for this. It was super helpful. I’ve been plant based now for 2 1/2 years and I’ve always been anti supplements (and anti pills, in general) but, I think it’s time to give it the ole college try and see how I feel.

  • I believe we should also take Glutathione ideally sublingually for maximum absorption, lumeniX is my preferred brand by entity health.

  • Richard, what about “250 mg daily of pollutant free (yeastor algae-derived) long-chain omega-3’s (EPA/DHA)
    ” that Dr. Michael Greger recommends on his website?

  • I appreciate the video that does not downplay veganism. I have been vegan for 10 years. Eat lots of whole grains and my CRP is.4 so very low inflammation and I do CrossFit (so a lot of muscle inflammation so to speak yet my CRP remains low) about 4 times a week. I don’t do protein supplements and recover quite fast. Apparently greens help reduce muscle inflammation and damage according to NIH. I eat pinto beans, and other vegetable and berries, I don’t cook with oil and try to avoid high saturated fat foods, eat nuts rarely. My cholesterol went down from 210 to 144. My LDL 72. At almost 40 I feel like I am 20. Plant-based diet reversed a clogged artery and needed not stent in that artery post heart attack. Dr. Essylsten has the right plan for heart attack prevention. Rember looking cut does not mean having healthy arteries. Thomas glad you do put veganism in a positive light.

  • I don’t like to take vitamins unless whole food based, but I have gotten away from vitamins and focus more on Ayurvedic herbs such as holy basil and ashwaganda and astragalus for energy, immune support, and the calming effect.

  • Hello, I’m new to your channel and my family and I are in the early stages of switching to a plant based diet. My concern is making sure my children (ages 2 & 9) get all the nutrients they need. What supplements do children need? What do you give to Max? Thank you ��

  • I just started taking ovega-3 and I like it so far. And I have to take a lot of iron because although I get enough in my food, my stores are really low, so I have to build that up.

  • This is such an old video, I wonder if you’d still comment on this but I wonder, do you take all your supplements in one sitting? And is there some kind of time frame between each daily dose, like do you have to take them a certain amount of hours after your last dose? Also, thank you so much for this video, I’m fairly new to supplements and often intimidated because I break out easily and have broken out taken supplements before.

  • I don’t like to take vitamins unless whole food based, but I have gotten away from vitamins and focus more on Ayurvedic herbs such as holy basil and ashwaganda and astragalus for energy, immune support, and the calming effect.

  • Not taking any supplements. Shit pharma lies with their “doctors” selling us stuff to give us “all” nutrients. Not to talk about their “tests”. Every plant eater in nature is healthy and doesnt take “supplements”, but the human suddenly needs them? Gimme a break.

  • Vegans are Hypocrite fucks Why??? Because A recent research shows plants feel pain to Remember that Carrot you eat last week That carrot Felt its roots being Threshed from the ground,How about being a normal human being from society And have a balanced diet

  • You guys are awesome! Thanks for the info! I would love to get more sea veggies (for iodine) in my diet (I do spirulina 2x per day) so Im good with the one but the dulse and nori make me gag. I think Im more likely to be consistent with a sea veggies supplement than on my salad. Do you have any suggestions for this? Thank you for doing what you do!:)

  • Eating Allium Vegetables with these foods improves mineral absorption, specifically zinc goes up by about 25% to 50%. IE: Garlic, or Onions, Scallion, Shallot, Leek, or Chives. It has been said that Phytic acid can prevent absorption of zinc in people that aren’t use to eating a lot of foods high in Phytic Acid. This effect usually goes away once the body adapts to higher levels of Phytic Acid. But Phytic Acid can also be reduced by: Soaking, Boiling, Fermenting, and Sprouting. Eating Spices, especially Black Pepper improves Vitamin and Mineral absorption. Eating small amounts of fatty foods with fat-soluble vitamins improves absorption of fat-soluble vitamins: A, D, E, and K/K2.

    But as for what supplements people should take it depends, par B12 as everyone should be supplementing B12. New evidence shows that some plant sources might actually have it in naturally, so in the future people might just need to eat more of these plant based sources of B12. But there isn’t enough data to say for sure yet.

    Vitamin D3 is needed in the winter, early spring, and late Autumn as this is usually when there isn’t much sun. If one lives close to the equate they don’t need to take Vitamin D3.

    Some people struggle to get enough Iodine, as for vegans the only real source is Seaweed or fortified foods. If one buys some dulse flakes and sprinkle that on their food they will get enough Iodine, they could even use kelp, but use a very tiny amount of kelp less then an 1/8th of a teaspoon, as kelp is so high in iodine, kelp is useful to eat if one lives in a warmer or more radioactive environments. Nori is a good seaweed to eat too but they would need to check how much iodine is in a sheet to make sure they get enough Iodine for the day.

    Men need more zinc then women and so men should make sure they’re eating enough zinc, but if they don’t think they will get enough zinc they could supplement zinc too. Zinc can be found in: Oats, Lentils, Tofu, Whole Grains, Bread, Beans, Chickpeas, and Hemp Seeds. If eaten with Black Pepper and Allum Vegetables people will absorb Zinc better too.

    Some women need Iron supplements, some women do better on a vegan diet and get more iron, it depends. One can get Iron from: Chickpeas, Oats, Chia Seeds, Raisins, Houmous, Beans, Lentils, Whole Grains, and Mushrooms. Iron is absorbed better when mixed with vitamin C. Vitamin C is found in: Raw Bell Peppers, Pineapple, Cooked Broccoli, and Passion Fruit. Getting Iron from plants plus Vitamin C is much better controlled by the body, meaning it’s healthier to get Iron from plant sources over animal sources. Plant Iron is converted into Heme Iron in the body when needed. They can also eat Allium Vegetables and Black Pepper with these foods to raise absorption as well.

    DHA is only needed when people eat a lot of fat in their diet, and don’t eat flax seeds or chia seeds often. If one gets a good balance of omega 3 to omega 6, Between 1 to 1 ratio, and one part omega 3 to four parts omega 6, then the brain will produce enough DHA, but if one eats a lot of margarine and uses a lot of oils high in omega 6, it’s going to be harder for their brain to make DHA and EPA. In which one should supplement DHA and EPA, if they are eating a lot of junk food, and not a whole food plant based diet like the Daily Dozen.

    No one needs to supplement protein, par maybe athletes that want to gain muscle, but know that doing this might actually end up being unhealthy for the body long term, as one puts more toil on the body.

    If you’re not sure if you get enough nutrients you can sort of use cronometer to get an idea, but it would only be estimates, but it should give you enough of an idea as long as you get regular sources from food your body should store up what you need to some degree so long as you’re always getting some, at least 2 thirds of the RDA regular, as a lot of what is on there is estimates some fresh or frozen whole foods might actually be a lot higher then the estimations. Or just follow the Daily Dozen and take a the supplements I said above based on eating habits.

  • I think that supplement you are advertising is way off. Like… Too much stuff in too much quantity. Totaly unnecessary and at points dangerous, like look at all that iron and at that little b12…….

  • For a covid-19 infection, I’ve stocked up on vitamin d for immune support, bromelain for inflammation, quercetin for respiratory infection fighting, hibiscus tea and amla powder for high-quantity antioxidants.

  • Hello. Can I ask which supplement of b12 do you give your infant? I have a 7.5 months old and I am doing my research. I just ordered the one from garden of life but the company says it’s not suitable for kids. Thank you in advance

  • Thanks for the information, Please lets praise ourselves for living a vegan lifestyle but also acknowledge that not all vegans eat the healthiest foods. Vegan processed and fast foods are for sale everywhere but that does not mean they are healthy. These products are loaded with sodium and sometimes high in oils and many are made from genetically modified ingredients. Eat whole foods, hopefully organic, vegetables, fruits, grains, beans, nuts and seeds. MOST people are low in magnesium and many are low in Zinc, most people are low in B12, not just vegans. peace..

  • Don’t call it a pandemic. It is not. It isn’t nearly even as bad as the flu. WTF is the world doing!? The emperor has no clothes already!

  • Why are you supplementing what you call (humans natural diet). Good for all stages of life isn’t it. Stop supplementing, I want to see what happens on your natural diet without them. Condolences to your family

  • Love your videos. Found it ‘by accident’ and watch over 5 videos. Please, keep it up. I just started the vegan lifestyle. It helps me a lot to get more into it. Your voice is really nice and calm. You got yourself a fan!

  • I’ll tell you a secret that you probably aren’t aware of. Most ascorbic acid (vitamin c) is made from black mold. It has been for years. If you want to take vitamin c it’s best to buy the more expensive vitamin c that comes from acerola cherries. Just look for acerola vitamin c. This is the pure stuff.

  • Does it occur to you people at all that eating a diet that is deficient in multiple ways is, maybe, a bad bad idea. None of these people look well.

  • Creatine Monohydrate (from Creapure(r)) changed my life, like rescued me, a total game changer. I take it every day and it blows my mind every day how good it is. Had muscle weakness and mal-sensations most of my life, all gone.

  • Love your videos!! I know this is a bit of an older one but I hope you see my comment. Quick question -what is your take on carrageenan? I looked into Ovega and it has carrageenan in it. I’m curious about your viewpoints on it or any resources you might suggest to learn more about it (a lot of what I’ve seen online suggests that carrageenan causes inflammation and has been linked to insulin resistance, among other not so ideal side effects). Thanks!!

  • Hi, Richard. Could you post your blood test results some time? Just curious. I’m taking a multivitamin and I’d like to see for myself the results of taking 2 or 3 vitamins instead.

  • B-12 is crucial for maintaining many bodily processes, this plays a role in the information of red blood cells, helps metabolize proteins and sometimes supports a healthy nervous system
    If you’re looking for B-12, go ahead, just a click away.

  • Great video! Hey That’s the B12 brand I use delicious spray! I also take D3 supplement how much vitamin D3 you take? Will definitely look into DHA/EPA Thanks!

  • Protein is in everything, its really hard to find someone with a protein deficiency in the US. Animal protein is a lot more unhealthy than plant protein because the different levels of amino acids can cause cancer.

  • For anyone who want to get a decent source of Iodine without taking a supplement or experiencing the gross taste of seaweed I’d recommend blending dried Wakame with a few black pepper corns. Then pour the powder into a soup or stew. It just adds a slightly salty/peppery taste without the fishy seaweed taste. It took me a long time to realise the best way to took seaweed so thought this might be useful to someone.

    20-30g Dried Wakame per day should be enough for adequate Iodine. (3.5g per day)

    Also It might be best to avoid consuming Iodine on the same day as you take your B12. As Iodine contains b12 analogues that may inhibit the absorption of B12.

  • I just looked at the ingredients in the vitamin supplement advertised at the end of the video. It has iron in it. People should not take iron supplements. It has implications for dementia. You get enough from a well balanced diet. Vegan doctors recommend people do not take a mulitvitamin. Please don’t be promoting these things. They are unhealthy.

  • The science doesn’t agree with Dr Klaper, Dr Greger and all the doctors that recommend Vitamin D here’s a video from a contributor to plant based news https://youtu.be/JbrxSCSaSUM

  • I have poor cognitive functioning and also believe that my cortisol levels are high and have heard omega 3’s help with those. Is there any information about which dosage ranges are recommended and is there any side effects from taking higher amounts? I dislike lower dosage studies because sometimes dosages studied are too low and they say theyre ineffective, but dosage always matters.

  • please tell me why an animal protein which was created from the process of an animal eating a plant protein, would be more complete than the plant protein??

  • I heard something about L-Tryptofhan in a study about happyness. The main sourcy for this is eggs. In a vegan lifestyle we dont use eggs anymore. Is this something to worry about? There are suplements for this.

  • For any Chilean friends out there, cochayuyo (a seaweed) is an amazing source of iodine, and it’s common in the country (you can even find them in states where there is no fishing activities)

  • I heard that ADHD people need more EPA than DHA. Do you know of any brand of vegan pill or liquid that contains more EPA than DHA? Or do you know of a vegan EPA-only supplement, so that the easier-to-find pills that contain more DHA than EPA (because they are marketed to people who want to improve their heart health instead of their brain health) can continue to be taken, but just take the EPA-only pill as well each day? Like maybe cut the heart-health pill in half, and then eat the EPA-only pill, and do this everyday?

  • You look madly healthy. I need to eat more sweet potatoes. You should add Vitamin K2 to your regime I hear if you take D3, it directs all the extra calcium into the bones rather than the arteries.

  • If you live in the UK you definitely need to take iodine. Dr greger recommends potassium iodide, or 1g of wakame or 0.5g of dulse. The UK doesn’t iodise its salt unlike the US. Their soil is also rich in selenium. UK and europe isn’t. So you’ll need a brazil nut or take selenium yeast

  • Vegans? LOL!

    You can get all the vitamins and minerals you need just from eating meat and vegetables.

    These vegans that have to supplement to get get B12, you think that would be a clue?

  • Question! Does raw algae have enough omega 3? I’m planning on using kelp as seasoning but it’s super high in iodine so i can’t use a lot. Was wondering if i need to buy a seperate omega3 supplement. Btw i do eat some fish, but not everyday.

  • There is no need to take any nutritional supplement, or eat animal proteins. Intestinal microbes produce all B vitamins, including B 12! Metagenomic analysis has predicted that Bacteroides fragilis and Prevotella copri (Bacteroidetes); Clostridium difficile, Faecalibacterium prausnitzii and Ruminococcus lactaris (Firmicutes); Bifidobacterium animalis, B.infantis, and B.longum (Actinobacteria); Fusobacterium varium (Fusobacteria) possess a vitamin B12 biosynthesis pathway. Indeed, Lactobacillus plantarum and L. coryniformis isolated from fermented food produce vitamin B12, and Bifidobacterium animalis synthesizes vitamin B12 during milk fermentation. Thanks for your watching!

  • Collard greens are low oxalate. So are all the lettuces. Beans, nuts, and seeds are also high in oxalates. I know, because I’m a vegan on a low oxalate diet due to massive kidney stones. Any of the pea family and lentils are all ok, too, including chickpeas. Just so you know…

  • I do a three a day bio natural whole foods vitamin I get off Amazon for 20 bucks every 1 or two months

    I personally don’t like those multi packets. It seems like a waste of plastic

  • Vegan are more susceptible for a b12 deficient, but there is not certain that they would develop such deficiency. Internal production is possible (I have personal proof of this and there some studies that prove internal production in humans). 40% fo population es deficiency of subdeficiency, the issue these days is for everybody. Of course supplement is the most reliable source of b|12 nowadays.

I take two of them daily and the rest twice weekly.

  • I have been vegetarian all my life and vegan for a long time, same goes for my family (vegetarian). Never took any supplements so I don’t know why there’s sudden increase in supplements.

  • This is just stupid. Way too many vitamins and minerals in that Healthy Cell gel… You can’t talk about B12, D3, EPA, DHA, iodine, zinc, creatine in the video, and then promote a supplement that has 24 extra micronutrients inside. There’s just no legitimacy in that…
