Popularity of plant-based diets continues to rise. And since vegans seek cruelty-free products in all areas of their life, this plant-centric approach has inspired supplement companies to include fruits, veggies, herbs, algae, vegan probiotics, and more in their green powders, plant protein blends, and yes—their innovative vegan multivitamins.
Although we are happy to see multivitamins companies switching to vegan formulas and many of them do, they often fail to include vital micronutrients plant-based people struggle to get enough from their diets.
“Modern multivitamins feature a comprehensive formula (read: complete lineup of fat- and water-soluble vitamins, macrominerals, and microminerals) while simultaneously delivering powerful botanical phytonutrients like carotenoids (e.g., beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, lycopene) and antioxidant powerhouses (e.g., resveratrol, glutathione),”* mbg’s vice president of scientific affairs, Ashley Jordan Ferira, Ph.D., RDN., previously wrote.
Ferira, a Ferira-certified nutritionist, has helped us identify the most effective vegan multivitamins available. These multivitamins not only contain only plant-based ingredients but also provide the vital nutrients we need to support our bones, heart, eyes and overall health.*
