Should you be taking a vegan multivitamin with B12, Vitamin D and Omega 3? | Vegan FAQs


Hey guys, I’m Shaun,
co-founder of Future Kind and welcome to the 30-second FAQ. (upbeat electronic music) Question one: Can I get everything from a healthy, whole
food, plant-based diet? The answer to that, in short, is no. If you’re eating a healthy vegan diet and a strict vegan diet, you’re not getting any B12; you must supplement. You might have heard you can
get it in nutritional yeast. That’s true, but it’s because it’s added
in there as a supplement. Vitamin D, you can get it from the sun, but most people aren’t getting
enough exposure each day. And omega-3, if you’re eating
chia seeds and flax seeds and a ton of them each day, you might be able to get enough omega-3, but it’s very hard to
get the right amount. So generally speaking, on
a healthy plant-based diet you’re gonna get everything else except B12, vitamin D, and omega-3. That’s it.
