When you are following a vegan diet, it can sometimes be difficult to get all the nutrients you need through food alone.
This is because a lot of the best sources of some nutrients are found in animal-based foodstuffs, such as meat or dairy products.
But do not worry. Our vegan calcium, vitamin D and magnesium formula contains a specific blend of vitamins and minerals, designed to support normal bones and muscle function.
Difficulties of a vegan diet
Living a plant-based lifestyle can have lots of benefits for your health, as well as for animals and the planet.
A vegan diet is naturally high in fibre and low in saturated fat, which may offer great benefits, when it comes to your overall health.
However, cutting out animal products completely might make it difficult for you to get certain nutrients.
Some of those which might be more difficult to get are calcium and vitamin D and that is where this impressive supplement comes in.
The main sources of calcium include dairy products, such as milk and cheese. Calcium helps to support normal bones.
Vitamin D is also known as the sunshine vitamin, since the majority of the vitamin D we get comes through the direct exposure of our skin to sunlight.
Food sources of vitamin D are few but include oily fish, red meat, liver and egg yolks.
The NHS therefore recommends that everyone takes a vitamin D supplement during the winter months, whether you are a vegan or not, since it can be so difficult to get the amounts that our bodies need – especially with the typical winter weather in the UK!
Vitamin D also helps to support normal bones and muscle function.
Benefits of a calcium, vitamin D and magnesium supplement
Each of these capsules contains 500mg of calcium, alongside vitamin D and magnesium.
These three proven ingredients help to support healthy bones and muscle function and magnesium helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue.
It is important to support your bones and muscles throughout your life, as they provide support for our bodies and help to form the shape of our bodies.
As well as this, our muscles may naturally start to lose tone. When we start to age, they could benefit from some extra support to maintain normal function.
Magnesium, vitamin D and calcium supplements can help offer this support.
