I have had the pleasure of trying out Vegums for the last few weeks, and I am excited to share my thoughts with you. I have been vegetarian for years now, but have recently been trying to adopt a more vegan lifestyle. However, I have struggled to find multivitamins which are vegan friendly, so I was excited to try Vegums.
The Vegums Multivitamin gummies will help compliment your vegan diet and will help you get the vitamins and nutrients which are most commonly found in dairy and meat. Which makes it an effortless way to be sure you don’t lack any nutrients. I must say the flavour is delicious, and I love that they are gummies, as it’s so much more appealing than taking tablets. The gummy texture makes them perfect for children over the age of three and adults alike to enjoy. The delicious strawberry flavour comes from real strawberries and a pinch of cane sugar, which makes you feel like you are getting a tasty treat!
I have also been looking to be more eco-friendly as we are all aware of the importance of protecting our planet. Vegum’s are entirely plastic-free, which is impressive! And when you subscribe, your first order comes with a tin so you can store your vitamins and refills are sent in a biodegradable cornstarch bag so there’s no waste as they are 100% recyclable.
The nutrients the vitamins provide have helped me feel more energised as I did find I struggled to get enough Vitamin B12 in my diet, since stopping consuming meat. The vitamins contain B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D2, Selenium and Iodide. This supplement is perfect for getting B12 into your diet, which is otherwise impossible as a vegan, and it’s so crucial for your body’s blood cells. As a woman, Folic acid is also essential for preventing congenital disabilities during pregnancy, and it’s great to start to implement it into your daily intake.
Vitamin D is usually gotten from sunlight, however with the long winters in the UK; it’s suggested to use a supplement to support this. The primary alternative source of vitamin D is animal products, so when living as a vegan, it can be challenging to include in your diet. Vitamin D is so crucial for your nails, bones and teeth as it helps calcium absorb into the body. Finally, Selenium is a bit of a buzz word at the moment, as I’ve heard about it a lot as it has a wide variety of benefits that mostly work around keeping your heart healthy, which is the most critical job.
All these vitamins complement each other perfectly and will compliment your vegan/vegetarian diet to ensure you are getting everything your body needs and avoiding any deficiencies which can cause health problems. They are super easy to make and delicious, just two gummies a day for adults alongside your meal. I never thought it would be so easy (and tasty) to get all the goodness my body needs.
