4 Key Nutrients to Focus on with a Vegan Diet
As a holistic nutritionist, I often get asked about the nutrients that vegans may lack.

Four key nutrients are especially important in a vegan diet: zinc, B12, iron, and omega-3.

Zinc is crucial for immune function, wound healing, and healthy skin. B12 is essential for nerve function, DNA synthesis, and red blood cell formation. Iron is important for oxygen transport, energy production, and cognitive function. Omega-3s are beneficial for brain and heart health, reducing inflammation, and supporting mood.

To ensure you get enough of these nutrients, incorporate plant-based sources such as legumes, nuts, seeds, whole grains, fortified foods, and algae-based supplements into your meals. And as always, a balanced and varied vegan diet can provide all the nutrients your body needs!
