Being a vegan means that one eliminates the use of non-human animal products from his or her diet. Dietary vegans are people who restrict themselves to the consumption of plant-based diets such as fruits, vegetables, legumes, pulses, nuts, and whole grains, or a lifestyle that aims to eliminate animal use entirely. Instead of using cow’s milk and cream, vegans use plant milk, soy milk and plant cream. Products that are derived from animals include poultry, eggs, meat (red meat and lean meats), honey, seafood, fur, leather, silk, gelatine, rennet, casein, carmine etc.
Numerous researches have showed that vegan diets make rich dietary sources of dietary fibres, phytochemicals, carotenoids, simple and complex carbohydrates, folic acid, vitamins, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids. Well-planned vegan diets provide protection against numerous diseases including type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, obesity, renal disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis and cancer. However, poorly planned vegan diets may be low in protein, vitamin B2, vitamin B12, vitamin D, omega-6 fatty acids, iron, zinc, manganese, iodine, fluorine and molybdenum.
Therefore, vegans should use a dietary supplement that is specifically designed for them to provide high quality vegetable protein and other nutrients.
