So as part of my new diet plan, I'm trying to take a vitamin supplement every day. I'm taking Blue Bonnet B-Complex caps (www.bluebonnetnutrition.com
). I understand that B-12 supplementation is important for us as our diet does not give us access to that, but are there any other nutrients that a vegan diet tends to be short on that I should know about? I want to make sure that I'm not deficient in anything but I also don't want to pop things in my body if I don't need to.
By the way, does anyone know anything about how these sorts of vitamin mixtures are formulated? This particular brand gives you: B-1, B-2, B-3, B-6, Folate, B-12, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Choline Bitartrate, Inositol, and PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid). I was only trying to get a B-12 cap but I got all this other stuff with it. I'm curious why these particular things might go together. I know nothing about biochemistry.
Man, this B-vitamin stuff make you *nauseous* if you take it on an empty stomach! Ugh.
