Key supplements for teens to survive a vegan diet. No matter what your eating, or how healthy your diet is, may teens are lacking in essential nutrients.
Your teen might have gone vegan for health reasons, environmental issues maybe they find factory farming cruel and inhuman. Maybe just to lose weight and have a healthier lifestyle. Whatever the reasons a plant-based diet offers great advantages. I have put together a list of advantages, according to research:
1. Reduced risk of heart disease
6. Low blood pressure
7. Lower rates of hypertension
We are living in a modern world, where farming has polluted a lot of our lakes and rivers. Our food is often grown in chemicals and our topsoil has lost a lot of its minerals. Having the correct supplements in our daily diet is extremely important. According to research Vegan lack 7 different nutrients as follows:
1. Vitamin D
7. Omega 3
