Veganism, or following a part time vegan diet, can be a great way to holistically nourish your body and soul, detox your system, and do your bit for the planet among other things.

While hitting your recommended daily intake (RDI) of protein, healthy fats, carbohydrates and micro-nutrients can be easily attained with a bit of knowledge and organisation, there is one vitamin you may need to supplement: B12.

Vitamin B12 is naturally derived from animal sources and foods. It plays a vital role in proper red blood cell formation, optimising neurological function, and DNA synthesis.

As this vitamin can not be sourced naturally from plant or non-animal sources, it is strongly recommended vegetarians and vegans use a supplement to prevent deficiency.

Before taking up a vegan/semi-vegan diet, or seeking a quality supplement, consult your healthcare professional for advice. As for a guideline of how much you should be looking to consume daily:

Women: 2.4 g
Pregnant: 2.6 g
Men: 2.4 g

Veganism can be a powerful and transformative lifestyle choice, but make sure to educate yourself on how to consume a healthy and balanced diet.
