Are you vegetarian? Are you taking any nutritional supplements?
A poorly planned vegetarian diet is relatively low in some essential nutrients such as vitamin B12, calcium, protein, zinc and iron. To fulfill the daily nutritional needs, it is very important to include a wide variety of foods, such as fruits, green leafy vegetables, legumes, nuts, grains, mushrooms and seaweeds. You are encouraged to increase iron and zinc absorption by including a source of vitamin C with your meals, such as a glass of juice, fresh vegetable or fruit. For protein and calcium, try eating two servings of dairy products or soya milk a day.
Nutritional supplements recommended for vegetarians
- Forever B12 Plus (containing vitamin B12 and folic acid) is necessary, since vegetarians inevitably lack the best sources of vitamin B12 (meats and animal products) in their diet.
- Aloe Vera Gel and Forever Bee Pollencan act as multi-nutrient supplements, since both are rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes.
- Forever Lite not only provides high quality proteins that are easily digested, but also provides vitamins and minerals to support overall well being.
