For reasons of intolerance, health problems, ethical or moral reasons, every day more people join the vegan lifestyle. In 2017, the report ''The Green Revolution'' was published, prepared by the consulting firm Latern, according to which 7.8% of the Spanish population over the age of 18 declared themselves vegetarian or mainly vegetarian. Of this 7.8%, 0.2% corresponded to vegans.
Although they are not extremely high data, they do show a growing trend. For this reason, we have created this section where you can find the best vegan supplements and vitamins .
Veganism is a diet in which no food of animal origin is consumed, from meat to eggs or milk.
By not consuming any product of animal origin, it is possible to have a protein or vitamin deficiency. Therefore they should look for alternative sources of protein and vitamins, sources such as soy protein, Vitamin B12 or calcium. One way to get these proteins or vitamins in which we can have a deficit, is by taking vegan supplements and vitamins .
The American Dietitian Association says that a well-planned vegan diet is a viable option for people of any age. Although they also advise consuming foods fortified with vitamin B12 or taking it in supplement form (Pawlak et al., 2013)
Although this way of life has in common the absence of meat and fish, the main difference between the vegan and vegetarian regime is that vegetarians can consume foods of animal origin, such as milk and eggs.
At Bulevip you will find a category dedicated exclusively to vegan supplements and vitamins , which will help you reach the daily requirement of protein, vitamins and minerals in a simple and safe way.

These gels will help you replenish energy in the same way that the rest of the gels do, but they are formulated based on plant foods such as fruits or seeds and cereals such as rice.

Vitamins are the most important elements to take into account when we start a diet of these characteristics, since they are not synthesized by our body, but we will incorporate them into it through our diet. Therefore, although there are foods suitable for vegans that allow them to incorporate these vitamins into the body, it will be necessary for them to be incorporated in some parallel way and this is where vitamins come in.
Experts recommend that vitamin D and B12 be reinforced in vegans since they will be the most difficult to incorporate into the body in this type of diet. Vitamin D will be necessary for the maintenance of teeth and bones while vitamin B12 deficiency can cause fatigue, loss of appetite and even mood swings.
At Bulevip we have a wide range of these vitamins, but also many more, among which we recommend:
Plant-based proteins are those that are obtained from cereals or legumes. They also provide a large amount of fiber and, in addition, provide less cholesterol than proteins of animal origin. The main function that these types of proteins have in the body is plastic or structural, that is, to form part of the body's structures. They will also contribute to cell regeneration, maintain the intestinal flora and will even provide us with vitamins, magnesium and calcium.
It should also be noted that the production of these is much more sustainable for the environment than that of proteins of animal origin.
At Bulevip you will find the best offer of this type of protein, among which are:
