    Does anyone know or have info source on whether it is good to take Omega 6 supplements ? I have some evening primrose & was taking it for my skin but after watching a couple of videos, 'What the Health' & 'The C Word', I have reservations about taking it. One of those movies - the 2nd I think -...

    Hey guys, I'm new to VB. I was a vegetarian for three years during high school (I'm 30 now, so that was a whiiiile ago). For really stupid reasons, I stopped being a vegetarian when I was about 18. I decided to go back to this lifestyle and have been for the past 2+ weeks. I also plan to...

    I'm new here (although longtime lurker) so sorry in advance if this isn't clear, in the proper place, etc.! I got some bloodwork done recently to check on iron levels (I have chronically low ferritin and take prescription iron), and they decided to test B12 while they were at it. I've always...

    Awhile back my doctor had me start taking iron supplements, because I was slightly anemic. Blood test show that I am no longer anemic, but my doctor still wants me to take the iron supplements for now. The Problem: Iron supplements that are certified vegan are very low mg (around 30mg) compared...

    I'm practically addicted to my soy protein isolate, but I'm considering adding more raw foods to my diet, and the best supplement I've found for it looks to be white hemp protein isolate. I know it's not 100% natural, but it seems to be a purer protein than soy. The issue is that there's just...
  6. Transitioning to Vegan
    Salutations, everyone! I'm Tues and I recently went cold turkey back to a vegan diet (and I am working on the ethical changes), but in doing so I got a quick reminder that I'm not used to cooking/baking (yet). My question main question is: Do you think it's okay to take supplements while I...

  9. Transitioning to Vegetarian
    So I just became vegetarian 3 weeks ago. I went cold turkey. My wife has been a vegetarian for years now so I decided to join her. My first week in I felt amazing, so amazing that I started working out. Before this I was eating a ton of junk food and meats and drinking a lot of caffeine. I...

  11. Transitioning to Vegetarian
    I went vegetarian a couple years ago for about a month and had no mental or physical energy. I went vegetarian again and the very first day I saw it happening again.. I took b12, b complex, ate cheese to see if it was the cholesterol..nothing fixed it. Could it be the Iron? I'm confused that if...

    Hi all! I am new here and hope this is the right spot. I've been veg (ovo lacto) for about 14 years, but I've never done much with protein powders or other powdered supplements. I have a nice new blender and am really enjoying smoothies, which has made me want to find a good veg-friendly...

    I've been taking those fancy, expensive vegan (brand name: Rainbow?) vitamins, and they're making me feel nauseated, even when I take them with food, or just after eating. This happens in the morning, and I don't think I have had problems at night, taking them before or during dinner. BUT, I...
