Plant Based Support contains 3 vital nutrients missing from a typical vegan or vegetarian diet.
Did you know fish obtain their omega 3 from algae? So does Vitbox. Omega 3 exists in 3 forms, EPA, DHA and ALA. Only ALA can be obtained from a plant based diet, and is converted EPA/DHA for its main uses. A vegan diet would need to include a lot of seeds to get significant quantities of ALA. This is why we chose to include our agal omega 3 DHA/EPA oil in this product. To read more, see our article on omegas.
Vitamin B12 is produced by microorganisms found in soil, which is eaten by animals when they graze on plants. The microorganisms colonise the gut of these animals and continue to produce B12 for the animal. So, we can get B12 from eating these animal products. Obviously this doesn't work for those following a plant based diet, so we've added B12 to our Plant Based Support supplement. To read more, see our article on vitamin B12.
Vitamin A is found as 2 forms, retinoids and carotenoids. Retinoids are active, and carotenoids have to be converted into active vitamin A to be used by the body. Retinoids are only found in animal products, and research has shown that plant based diets may not include enough vitamin A. So therefore, we chose to include Vitamin A (as retinyl palmitate), in our Plant Based Support supplement. To read more, see our article on vitamin A.
