Brands?

#1 Postby kelley » Wed Jul 26, 2006 9:22 am

Being still relatively new to veganism, and using up my non-vegan items where I can, I have not bought any vitamins/minerals that I know for sure are vegan. I am ready to buy some more aminos and eventually a multi in another month or two.

So I need to know what brands to look for? Vegan, obviously, but also that will be absorbed well by my body (I have read that capsules are best for this, but maybe they all are?)

I prefer powdered supplements, or veggie caps that I open to pour the ingredients into my smoothies. I can't imagine that hard tablets are that digestible.

www.healthforce.com is a vegan/raw food company founded by a naturopath that has several whole-foods-based supplements (my preferences).

www.drfuhrman.com has a good multi specifically made for vegans (though the "osteo sun" is NOT vegan because it contains cholecalciferol/D3). It's a tablet, but small and I trust Fuhrman to provide a good product.

You can also check out the vitamin lines sold at www.veganessentials.com .

Super! Thanks! I had been using some TwinLabs capsules but I have no idea wether they are vegan, as I bought them a long time ago. I'll check out your sources!
