While many promise to improve our health and bodily functions, and can provide our bodies with the vitamins, minerals and nutrients we lack, it’s important to remember that the key is in the name. Supplements are designed to do just that: to Support what we already get from our food, not completely replacing those sources.
Think of them as the helping hands of our diet, ensuring that we’re getting exactly what we need to keep our insides working the way they should.
With so many varieties of supplements on offer, it can be difficult to figure out which ones we should be taking. The first step is always to talk to your doctor or healthcare professional, to make sure whatever you choose to take is healthy for you and your personal situation.
The benefits of going herbal
Right now, more and more people are turning to herbal supplements, like the new Vital Supplement range. 100% pants-based, each supplement in the range is highly bioavailable, meaning they are gentler on the digestive system and more likely to be better absorbed by our bodies than their synthetic counterparts.
Each vegecap vegan supplement is derived from natural, complete and standardized ingredients, and contains additional micronutrients that benefit our body and overall well-being compared to synthetic vitamins and minerals.
Available in three varieties of vitamins and minerals (iron, calcium, and vitamin D), here’s why these herbal supplements have earned a place in our morning routines.
Our body depends on iron to make hemoglobin, the part of blood that carries oxygen around our body. It is also an essential mineral for our energy levels, mental function and even muscle strength.
Feeling tired or dizzy can be a sign of low iron or even iron deficiency. It is therefore important to talk to your doctor if you start to develop any of these symptoms. A simple blood test can determine if you might benefit from an iron supplement.
vital iron Naturally supports iron levels in the body and is made from a 100% vegetable source of iron, extracted from curry leaves. It is gentle on the stomach and highly bioavailable, which means it is more easily absorbed by the body. It also contains vitamin C from the acerola fruit and iron from leafy greens like spinach leaves, broccoli sprouts and asparagus, which are naturally rich in minerals.
Essential for building and maintaining strong bones, our heart, muscles and nerves also need calcium to function properly.
We don’t produce calcium on our own, so we have to get it from other sources, like dairy products and dark leafy vegetables. Calcium supplements may be needed for people on a plant-based diet, who are lactose intolerant, or for women at risk of osteoporosis entering menopause.
vital calcium uses Aquamin® Forte as a source of plant-derived calcium, 100% derived from seaweed harvested from the seabed of the North Atlantic in the wild and remote seas of northwest Iceland. Plus, it also contains magnesium and 17 other trace minerals to support overall health and well-being.
Our bodies need vitamin D to be able to absorb calcium, which is why these two supplements often go hand in hand. Although this is the main function of vitamin D, it also plays a role in supporting the immune system and helping to maintain healthy skin and muscles.
While fatty fish and mushrooms are rich sources of vitamin D, our bodies primarily produce the vitamin when our skin is exposed to sunlight, with some people needing a supplement to boost their levels.
Vital Vitamin D uses VitaShine D3™, the only Vegan Society & Vegetarian Society registered vitamin D3 in the world. It is a special oily extract of lichen, naturally rich in vitamin D3 and fatty acids.
It also contains five types of mushrooms, including shitake, turkey tail and silver ear mushroom, which are a known natural source of vitamin D and micronutrients to support immune system function and health and well-being. -to be in general.
