For anyone hearing the words Veganism or Vegan for the first time, lets start with the definitions. So essentially a Vegan is a person who does not eat or use any animal products. A true Vegan avoids eating any animal products such as meat, dairy, honey etc., as well as not using products that contain any animal by products.This would mean avoiding certain toothpastes, shampoos, conditioners, candles etc.
If you are interested in becoming a Vegan, there are extensive lists online you can find that will tell you what foods and products to avoid, because there are more than you would think.
Now most people make the switch to Veganism for a few reasons. The first being they don’t want to harm animals and add to the demand of animal products in our society, which leads to more and more animals dying everyday. The other is because some people have a hard time digesting animals products, and find that after the switch their body functions better. Lastly, a number of people make this large change in the hopes that they will lose weight and be healthier over all. Whatever your reasoning, becoming a Vegan is a rather large lifestyle change.
The Down Side:
If you don’t do your research beforehand you may be in trouble when starting your Vegan lifestyle. You have to consider all the nutrients you get from animal products in your diet and you must figure out how to replace them with herbivorous options, or your body will suffer.
For example some vitamins and minerals found in animal products that are important to your body’s everyday health are: Vitamin B-12, omega 3 fatty acids, iron, and zinc.
But don’t fret; if becoming a Vegan is important to you there are many Vegan supplement options out there! These supplements will be your daily vitamins and they will help to replace what your’re not getting in your vegan diet, making your diet complete without any animal products.
Starting your search for supplements, my best advice is to read the labels and make sure there are no animal by products. Even if the supplement itself does not have any; you must also consider any fillers or even the casing of capsules and be sure they are also Vegan.
Keep an eye out for cruelty free products as well, which means that neither the product nor its ingredients were tested on animals.
