Today I want to share with you my recent purchase with My Vegan.
My Vegan produces natural and plant-based products, these range from vitamins, food and snacks, protein powders and a variety of supplements, they use healthier options and clever colour choices to promote a healthy lifestyle for their customers, the products use high quality ingredients which are 100% plant based, taste amazing and provide multiple benefits for your health, they believe in cutting out all animal products but do not compromise on flavour, after all you are what you eat!
I bought a few items from them and was very pleased with the quality, taste and value I got for my money, I purchased a protein powder which was unflavoured, the reason I chose this flavour was because I love making a variety of smoothies and having unflavoured means I can mix this protein powder with absolutely anything, the other items I purchased were a vitamins bundle, this included: Vegan Omega 3, Calcium and Magnesium, Vitamin D3 and B12.
In everyday life it is rare we all take in the required amount of vitamins our body needs daily, being vegan, B12 is one vitamin that we can sometimes lack, having this supplement means it is a easy way to provide my body with what it needs, once you get into the routine of taking these you will not forget and will see the benefits.
I will now list the benefits of each of these products:
This is the fatty acids your body requires, each capsule contains EPA and DHA which are sourced from algae, this capsule when taken daily benefits your heart, brain and vision.
This is the vitamin I get questioned about the most, I am always asked how a vegan gets their requirements of B12, this is a nutrient that the body cannot make on its own and is naturally found in animal products such as fish, meat and dairy, so as a vegan it is important to supplement this vitamin, I have also communicated with many meat eaters who are deficient in B12, so eating animal products does not guarantee you get enough of this vital vitamin. One of the functions of this vitamin is to keep the body's nerves and blood cells healthy and helps prevent anemia which can lead to fatigue and tiredness.
This is a vitamin that is produced by sun exposure, being in the UK the sun is usually hard to come by and for that reason I purchased this supplement, vitamin D3 is high in meats such as tuna, salmon, beef, cheese and egg yolks, however there are plenty of vegan foods that are a great source of this vitamin such as soy milk, mushrooms, fortified cereals, juices and plant based milks. The biggest benefits of getting the required amount of this is the promoting of healthy bones and strengthening of the immune system.
Together calcium and magnesium are crucial to bone health, muscles and the normal functioning of the nervous system, this supplement also contributes to the maintenance of electrolytes which are important because they help balance the amount of water in your body. Magnesium helps with protein synthesisis which is the process all cells use to make proteins, this is responsible for all cell structure and functionality.
Vegan Protein Blend - Unflavoured
This is a protein powder consisting of pea protein and fava beans, this product is low in fat, sugar and is gluten free, this has 24g of protein per scoop which is included within the pouch. the pouch is re-sealable which is great and its a space saver rather than having a tub like most companies do, the protein also comes in a variety of flavours such as banana, strawberry and chocolate, there are even more unique flavours like carrot cake and turmeric latte, each serving contains 110 calories and has a full amino acid profile. I personally have this twice a day and mix with fruit and almond milk for a delicious drink, I will be posting in the near future some of the recipes I have created.
