A while back, I wrote a post on which supplements you do and don’t need on a keto diet (link to that here!). This podcast episode is an effort to update that for my vegan keto peeps (there are dozens of us!).
We tend to get bombarded with messages about needing to take certain supplements, or products (exogenous ketones, I’m looking at you…), and the reality is that we actually need very few. In this podcast, I give a brief overview of the supplements you might want to consider for various reasons, and then mention a few other things that I really love, and that have actually been helpful for me.
Vitamins B12 & D
So, the basics are covered in the original article, but I had mentioned a few additional supplements necessary for vegans. Namely, sublingual B12.
I also mentioned vitamin D and sun exposure. This article has some great links and a super helpful sun exposure chart!
As noted in the podcast, I have started adding mushroom coffee (basically, coffee with lion’s mane or cordyceps medicinal mushrooms) to my daily routine for a boost in immunity, brain function and overall performance.
