I’m running through the WHAT and WHY of all the supplements (extra vitamins, minerals, caffeine, and protein) I take to meet all my nutritional and energy requirements that isn’t fully met through my whole food plant based diet.
Not everything I listed in this video is necessary for anyone on a vegan diet, but instead are what I personally choose to eat to fuel my lifestyle.
Let’s jump in!

If you research studies on calcium, you’ll get A TON of conflicting data. Some studies are weeks long (too short to get any real results for something like studying BONE), and some studies are over a decade long, but a decade or more old.
Basically, the data is inconclusive, except this still remains true: everything in moderation & variety (in food, exercise, sun exposure, sleep….) and you are probably getting enough of everything you need for a healthy body.
