CYTOPLAN’S VEGAN CARE BUNDLE SUPPORTS FIRST TIME VEGANUARY PARTICIPANTS

In 2021 more than half a million people signed up to VEGANUARY* and with THE month of ‘going vegan’ just around the corner, it’s more important than ever for people to consider the supplements that might support a sudden change in diet, to help bridge any gaps in nutrition and keep vitamins and minerals at optimum levels throughout the winter season.

Cytoplan’s innovative Vegan Care Bundle has been created by experienced Nutritional Therapists and selected to specifically support a
vegan diet. Vegan Care Bundle (cytoplan.co.uk) RRP £53.30**

Containing Vitamin B12, Vitamin D3, Wholefood Iron and Omega 3 Vegan, this group of vital vitamins and minerals pack a powerful punch to support a diet free from meat, dairy and eggs this VEGANUARY.

Packed with a high potency active form of Vitamin B12 (which is normally primarily available from foods derived from animals); this vitamin is important for nerve health and low levels can cause many symptoms including extreme tiredness, pins and needles, low mood and problems with memory. Research has shown that a vegan diet can cause a deficiency in B12
and levels can be maintained by eating fortified or fermented foods along with a good active B12 supplement.

Also containing a bioavailable form of Vegan Vitamin D3; the Vegan Care Bundle includes this vital vitamin because of its many roles in the body including and importantly contributing to the normal function of the immune system, the absorption and utilisation of calcium, and the maintenance of bones and teeth. A vegan diet containing mushrooms and fortified foods can provide some low levels of vitamin D, however, these foods contain vitamin D2, rather than the superior vitamin D3 form which is utilised in the body. Vitamin D3 is integral support for our immune systems, and a deficiency in Vitamin D can mean there is an increase in vulnerability to infections and low levels are associated with many chronic diseases.

Also included in Cytoplan’s Vegan Care Bundle and derived from marine algae is Omega 3 Vegan which offers a rich source of essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA) that would otherwise be derived from eating oily fish. Within a vegan diet Flaxseeds are a good source of ALA (alpha linolenic acid) which can be converted by the body to the active Omega -3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA), however research has shown this to be inefficient due to multiple factors, which is where a supplement containing those essential fatty acids is important with a vegan diet.

Cytoplan’s Vegan Care Bundle also includes a Wholefood source of Iron which has many roles including contributing to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, cognitive function, formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin, and immune system function. The most bioavailable form of iron is derived from eating red meat, however on a non-meat diet including foods such as pulses and tofu can provide iron too, it’s just not as well absorbed by the body. Cytoplan’s Wholefood Iron supplement has been created by growing brassica juncea; an edible cruciferous vegetable similar to broccoli, in an iron-rich growth medium, which results in a gentle and vegan wholefood Iron to support both a vegan and vegetarian diet.

Amanda Williams; CEO of Cytoplan who created the Vegan Care Bundle said: “Many of us are eating less meat, dairy and other animal products for a host of reasons, and particularly in Veganuary it is important for those making sudden dietary changes to ensure they are getting optimal levels of vital vitamins and minerals that they otherwise may have derived from foods they are now not eating.

“Eating a rainbow of vegetables, nuts and seeds to ensure there is variety in your diet will be important, and extra support through supplementation is suggested to help bridge any potential nutrition gap and to support your new eating habits while you develop the most healthful diet going forwards.”
