Always B12
I take 2500 mcg once a week

I strongly suggest getting vitamin D checked, but that doesn;t pertain to vegans only. there are vegan D3 now made with lichens

Thats all if you eat a well balanced plant based diet

I also take algae DHA. I tried it several years ago and found it absolutely gave me better attention and focus, so I continue to take it-theoretically we should convert what's in plant fatty acids to DHA--found only in sea foods, either fish oil or the algae fish eat--but not everyone seems to do it well

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good

Hi karl,

The Vegan Society UK sells a very low-cost vegan supplement. It's only about $2 per month: https://www.vegansociety.com/shop/veg-1-supplements


Specific recommendations for a healthy diet include: eating more fruit, vegetables, legumes, nuts and grains; cutting down on salt, sugar and fats. It is also advisable to choose unsaturated fats, instead of saturated fats and towards the elimination of trans-fatty acids."
