Wellwoman Vegan has been specially developed for women who are following a vegetarian or vegan diet. With 23 nutrients, it provides unique vegetarian and vegan support in the Wellwoman range, the UK's No1 supplement brand for women.
There are a number of reasons why women following a vegetarian or vegan diet may need to safeguard their nutritional intake. Lower intake levels of zinc in the diet can be more common in vegetarians. Zinc is scientifically proven to contribute to the normal function of the immune system, as well as for the maintenance of normal skin, hair and nails. The body needs vitamin B12 to support normal red blood cell formation and to support the immune system. It's usually found naturally in foods from animal sources, therefore a reliable supplement with vitamin B12 is often recommended if you are a vegan or vegetarian.Specialist nutrition just for womenWomen generally have a higher iron requirement than men, partly because of blood loss during the menstrual cycle. The most common source of iron is red meat, so when following a vegetarian or vegan diet it's important to make sure you receive enough iron from alternative sources. Iron contributes to normal formation of red blood cells & haemoglobin, an important consideration during the monthly cycle. Vitamin B12 is naturally found in animal products, including fish, meat, poultry, eggs, milk, and milk products. It is generally not present in plant foods, so it's also important to ensure you get enough. Vitamin B12 contributes to red blood cell formation and normal energy release.
