Best Vegan Supplements: Q&A with Jenné

Loading ....


Is it important to take vitamins? Which supplements should I be taking? Are there certain vitamins that vegans need to use?

I get these questions all of the time, so in this video I’ll talk about the supplements I take and what they do for my body.
Of course you should be relying on a healthy plant-based diet to supply your body with necessary nutrients, but supplements are a great way to get that added boost!

Use my code (GRS568) on and you’ll save $5 off ($10 if you spend more than $40)! I love this site for supplements and kitchen goodies.

The vitamins I take daily:
– Vitamin C for immunity and healthy skin. I take 500mg 3x daily. A liquid vitamin C works best, but an inexpensive pill will work too.
– B complex for a balance of essential B vitamins including b12 (an important nutrient for neurological health). B complex vitamins are helpful for controlling stress too! Can be taken as a pill, injection at the doctor, liquid, or dissolvable tablet.
– Vegan Omega 3 with EPA and DHA for heart and brain health. This omega-3 supplement is sourced from algae. Unlike fish oil it is unlikely to be contaminated with harmful pollutants and heavy metals.
– Zinc for hormonal balance and immunity. This is particularly helpful for maintaining healthy skin.

What vitamins do you like to take and why? Or are you opposed to taking supplements? Share your thoughts below!

  1. I am a raw vegan For 2 years now. We currently are on lock down due to the covid19 pandemic and I wanted to share these Nutrilite vitamin D supplements for immune and bone health that ARE ACTUALLY VEGAN. Made of Mushrooms !I just ordered my second bottle , they are amazing , Check them out!

  2. is it better to just take the multi vitamin vs individual ones? sometimes you don’t know what you need

  3. You might not see this because the video is older, but what order do you take them?? like do you take them all together? at certain times? like I wanna buy all these but when do I take /use them?

    1. nvm i just finished the video 😂 and you said you take them everyday hahahah sorry

  4. If Become Vegan Would It Stop Me From Getting UTI Am 55.

  5. Hi jenne thank you for your videos they are so helpful for me because im gradually getting away from meat and other foods that are causing me and im been looking at Dr. Sebi food guide for guidance to an healthier lifestyle with no meat or meat products i have an question for you even though im vegan yet but can still take vegan supplements if you are not vegan? because im an deficient because i lost so much blood last year

  6. Thanks for this. It was super helpful. I’ve been plant based now for 2 1/2 years and I’ve always been anti supplements (and anti pills, in general) but, I think it’s time to give it the ole college try and see how I feel.

  7. what do you take to keep your hair from falling out. I’m african American and since going vegan my hair has been coming out please help🙁

    1. Stephanie Hickman biotin and Jojoba oil is really good. My mother’s hair used to be soo thin and now is so thick.

  8. Man thats a lot of supplements😶 if veganism is a the healthiest diet why need so many supplements🤔thats what I dont get

    1. C Ale The only necessity is B12. She’s just going above and beyond to stay youthful.

  9. My B12 says it’s 2,500 mcg. Is that too much?

  10. I’m already taking a multivatim …should I take extra supplements as well … new vegan here please help 😁💖

  11. Cool!!

  12. you remind me of a friend of mine and its so comforting. i love your videos <3

  13. girl u look good, thanks for posting

  14. Thank you!! Vitamins and minerals tend to confuse me

  15. Do you know what the difference between zinc and probiotics is? Seems like they have very similar functions.

  16. What type of fiber supplements do you get.

  17. Vegans don’t need to supplement vitamin C I get 900% a day 🤔

  18. Hi,

    I’m starting a transition into veganism. For a beginner, what vitamins should I take to transition? Should I start with the vitamins you just listed?

  19. I’m not sure on the amount of b12 to be taking, is one 1,000mcg tablet once a week ideal? What is ideal? The really high doses (2500, 5000, 6000mcg+) do make me nervous.

  20. Hi Jenné 🙂 do you still take all these supplements or do you have a updated version? I definitely need some and would love some recommendations ( Europe based, but I can order).Thanks in advance!

  21. HELP! HELP!

  22. I am a new vegan I am really trying to learn what vitman to take I am tired all the time.

    1. Make sure you sleep too, I’m vegan and tired most of the time. I’m pretty sure it’s because I sleep 3-5 hours a day lol, I got my blood tested and no deficiency.

  23. Do you still take omega supplement? I read that ground flaxseed is also a good choice for omegas?

  24. only add for this video is hillshire farm ham lol

  25. Where did you get those specific vitamins?

  26. I <3 you! You're so positive and informative! Keep up the good work! 😀

  27. you are amazing

  28. Love your videos!! I know this is a bit of an older one but I hope you see my comment. Quick question -what is your take on carrageenan? I looked into Ovega and it has carrageenan in it. I’m curious about your viewpoints on it or any resources you might suggest to learn more about it (a lot of what I’ve seen online suggests that carrageenan causes inflammation and has been linked to insulin resistance, among other not so ideal side effects). Thanks!!

  29. Hello! Is there a reason you take individual vitamins rather than 1 multi? Thanks so much! 🙂

  30. thxs

  31. This is the first video I’ve came across of you. I found you cause I’m looking for the right vitamin(s) to take. I’m a vegetarian and noticed that I’ve been getting sick easily since becoming one. Before cutting out meat, I never got sick. So I know it has to do with some type of deficiency my body is facing. Would you recommend just B-12? I keep hearing about that… Or a B complex like you use in the video. By the way, I love your energy!

  32. I love vegans. I love you 😍.

  33. I really enjoy your videos. I am not a vegan. Do you take all your vitamins at the same time? Or different times for maximum absorption? I take Zinc and drink chlorophyll. I also take Fish Oil pills, magnesium and turmeric because I strength train a lot.

  34. I just love your Black Gril Magic! Keep doin what your doing girl! 🙂

  35. why not just a multivitamin instead…

    1. Bianca Dort most multis don’t have all of that and are very poorly balanced

  36. I just started taking ovega-3 and I like it so far. And I have to take a lot of iron because although I get enough in my food, my stores are really low, so I have to build that up.

  37. Vegans are Hypocrite fucks Why??? Because A recent research shows plants feel pain to Remember that Carrot you eat last week That carrot Felt its roots being Threshed from the ground,How about being a normal human being from society And have a balanced diet

  38. I’m a 12 year old vegetarian and I take vitamin B12 (100mcg) and omega 3

  39. Vegans? LOL!

    You can get all the vitamins and minerals you need just from eating meat and vegetables.

    These vegans that have to supplement to get get B12, you think that would be a clue?

    1. So

    2. Kevin herenow my parents are omnivores (especially step dad who eats bacon every day) and they supplement b-12 because they are over 50.

    3. Fail troll, move along. Oh animals make b12? Oh shit I didn’t know, you learn something made up everyday I guess. “LOL!”

    4. Im not even a vegan, but I still know you’re ignorant. The B12 in animals comes from the plants they eat in the first place, it’s not made by the animal itself. 🙄 So vegans can still easily get B12 by cutting out the middle man and eating plants.

    5. And is there a reason you’re here…other than trolling?

  40. I don’t like to take vitamins unless whole food based, but I have gotten away from vitamins and focus more on Ayurvedic herbs such as holy basil and ashwaganda and astragalus for energy, immune support, and the calming effect.

  41. Do you think that’s a better way to get omega 3s than flaxseed or walnuts?

  42. I take a b12 supplement with 1000 mcg a day. idk if thats too much but its smol so haha! and a vegan womens supplement with a ton of stuff with every main meal.

  43. You look madly healthy. I need to eat more sweet potatoes. You should add Vitamin K2 to your regime I hear if you take D3, it directs all the extra calcium into the bones rather than the arteries.

    1. soon true, I did some research on this for my teeth, so I added the vitamin k2 to the already vitamin d3 I was taking

  44. I’m taking Calcium and magnesium as well ^^

  45. how can i become a vegan

    1. adjust slowly, do some research, and just do it 🙂 eat lots of whole fruits and vegetables.

  46. You’re super cute!!!!

  47. This was very helpful! Thank you so much!!!

  48. Vitamin C does nothing for your immune system.

    1. May be a placebo, but it seems to help my skin. Send me your sources; I should share ours here. Thanks Brittany!

  49. Omega 3’s I get from hemp seeds or chia seeds. Both are very high in omega 3. And the DHA I get comes from spirulina that i grow in two aquariums in my kitchen. As for other supplements I’ll tell you what I take. Silica is one of the most overlooked minerals that our bodies need. So I take Silica every day. Also, I like MSM. MSM contributes to amazing skin and helps to rebuild collagen. If you’re older then 40 you know how important this is. Now I do take other supplements as well. I love cordyceps but I buy this in bulk and make my own pills. Also, DMG is good for anyone over 40 because this is a molecule that is produced in our livers that we stop making as we get older. it’s amazing stuff. And, of course, I take a good source of chlorella. I love the stuff. Between Chlorella, Spirulina, etc. most of my nutritional needs are met.

  50. I’ll tell you a secret that you probably aren’t aware of. Most ascorbic acid (vitamin c) is made from black mold. It has been for years. If you want to take vitamin c it’s best to buy the more expensive vitamin c that comes from acerola cherries. Just look for acerola vitamin c. This is the pure stuff.

    1. also camu camu. King of vitamin c!

  51. Too many tablets puts pressure on your kidneys. Better off getting all this from food.

  52. I’m planning to start taking supplements. Would it be ok to start taking a few each day all at once, or is it something that you need to ease into?

    1. The only supplements you really need are B12 and DHA if you’re vegan. Well unless eat a bunch of garbage food lol

  53. Hey sister I new to your channel. I have a lot of joint pain. What can I take that is vegan?

  54. Thank you so much for making this video! I recently went vegan and I started to feel so fatigued and so sluggish and I could not realize why this was, I figured it was the detox part however I have no energy to do anything. After doing further research I see that begins need to supplement with B 12, I am wondering when do you see changes after you start to supplement with increased energy?

    1. inna b You are most likely not eating enough. When you become vegan you need to eat more

  55. Question: gummy vitamins are no good right?

    1. Someone did! I just bought vegan gummy D3 vitamins by Country Life. 😀

    2. Try Nature’s Dynamics Vegan Garden Gummy vitamins, I haven’t tried them yet but they are gelatin free and vegan!

    3. Crap, I love the gummies… I wish someone who invents food would invent vegan gummies.

    4. i havent found any vegan gummies in the market

    5. +Jaclyn Shaw I have no idea! I guess it depends on what kind of gummy vitamins: sugar? high quality?

  56. I just ordered Deva Vegan Multivitamin on Amazon, has anyone used that? I’m a little scared that its cheap.

    1. if its cheap its not worth well you probably know about it now its been a year so wassup?

    2. I use it and I know a lot of other vegans that do. B12 is supposed to be cheap!

    3. …vitamin take e

    4. I’ve used it. It’s really nice because it’s rather small.

    5. +jellybeanz I like them, haven’t got a blood test or something but I feel good. The youtuber “Unnatural Vegan” uses them too and she knows like everything so I’m pretty sure Deva is good.

  57. I take wild salmon oil , multiviatamin , all from trader joe , going vegan seem tough I love o eat everything lol , u rr a strong girl  to go vegan

  58. u have beautiful skin my friend 🙂 what kid of creams or masks u use ?

  59. Omg just found your channel. Great video. Subscribing now.<3

  60. This was beyond helpful! Thank you for sharing 🙂

  61. hello , im looking at your videos, and i love them.
    i have a question,,, im taking just a vegan supplement called one a day by DEVA and omega-3 called ovega-3 🙂 just wanted to know if thats enough or should i take each vitamin by separate ?
    have a nice day, and hope you can answer me

  62. So, you only take the vitamin b complex? I’ve tried going vegan from vegetarian many times but it’s difficult because of the fear of a deficiency. So I guess I’m asking– is the complex all that’s needed to cover it? Thanks!

    1. +Fake Namelol Sublingual methylcobalamin is the best kind of b12 to avoid deficiency!

  63. I hope you see this comment BUT I have a question. Can I be able to take all of these vitamins and take a daily multivitamin? Please answer

    1. +Wizard Iz Hey!! You won’t need to take a multi plus these vitamins. The multi should be enough 🙂 I recommend getting your vitamin and mineral levels checked at the doctor. Then you can see what’s going on, and if you need to be monitoring anything.

  64. This is such an old video, I wonder if you’d still comment on this but I wonder, do you take all your supplements in one sitting? And is there some kind of time frame between each daily dose, like do you have to take them a certain amount of hours after your last dose? Also, thank you so much for this video, I’m fairly new to supplements and often intimidated because I break out easily and have broken out taken supplements before.

    1. Ah, good to know! Thank you so much! Have a lovely day, and p.s. I am so happy to have found your channel! You are a beautiful soul and don’t ever stop doing you! 🙂

    2. +OOEGGS Hey there!! Great question. I take them all around breakfast, with food in my belly. I will take vitamin C twice daily though because your body can only absorb so much at once 🙂

  65. What is your opinion on multivitamins? I take Alive for Women.

  66. Would Chia seeds be enough for Omega 3?

    1. I think so!

  67. Excellent video, keep it up!

    1. +Chris Sartoretto Fitness I appreciate it Chris 🙂

  68. youre amazing, such a good vibe!!!!!! youre cute and so interesting! thanks so much for doing this

    1. +Eva Grace And that’s why subscribed to her channel 😉 <3 Ⓥ

    2. @Eva Grace Thank you so much!!

  69. how often do you take each one? is there one supplement with everything in?

  70. This video helped me so much! I was very confused about what supplements and vitamins I should be taking to replace proteins and vital nutrients and this answered everything, thanks so much:) You have a beautiful smile also.

    1. @Cameron Backstrom Thank you Cameron for watching. I’m so glad you found it helpful 🙂 Best of luck to you!!

  71. Good info, why are you experiencing stress?

    1. @Andre Moore Thanks Andre 🙂 I get stressed with work a lot 🙁

  72. I just came upon your channel and I’m loving it! Thank you for your time and effort. As a mom I need ideas to feed my kids healthy foods. Do you have any kid vegan recipes? Hugs, Zoe

    1. @Crafting Pantry (AF0093) Hi Zoe! Thank you for watching :)I wonder if your kids would like the vegan enchiladas I make?
      You can easily switch out the fillings. Also the tahini cookies are yummy and kid-approved
      and banana brownies!!

      xo

  73. I still can’t believe you are almost 30.. You look like you can still be going to high school. Vegan is the way !!!

    1. I think a lot of women are like that vegan or not, you will see her true superior aging in the next few decades!! ; )

    2. lol like 30 is even old!!! But yeah V-gang is the way regardless

    3. @Da’Naisa Love Thank you very much 🙂

  74. Love your videos. Found it ‘by accident’ and watch over 5 videos. Please, keep it up. I just started the vegan lifestyle. It helps me a lot to get more into it. Your voice is really nice and calm. You got yourself a fan!

    1. @Myrthe Hi Myrthe! Thank you so much for being a fan 😉
      I’m so happy for that accident! Congratulations on your vegan lifestyle. Let me know if you ever have questions!

  75. Goddess, You are delightful, informative, creative and beautiful!  Thank you so much for doing all your videos!

    1. @Randi Hoffman Awww, thank you so much Randi! Puts a smile on my face 🙂

  76. This really is some pretty good information 🙂 thanks for that 🙂 I would love love looooove if you could make a video about your exercise routine; especially your arms. I like your toned arms 😀 sorry if that sounds freaky… 

    1. Thank you!! I’m so glad you enjoyed it. Sure! I’ll do an exercise video. Honestly the arms are mostly hereditary. Though doing yoga definitely increases my definition. And eating well helps too 🙂

  77. Omg, I just found your channel. I HAVE SO MANY VIDEOS TO WATCH!!! <3

  78. Great video. Where can I find more information about the “sheep’s wool” in vitamins? Yuk!!! I had no idea.  I try to buy all natural vitamins. I don’t take many vitamins but when I do, I would like to get the best if I could afford it.

    1. @Donna Banks Yes!! That (lanolin) is what they use for non-vegan vitamin D3 supplements. You can buy the vegan one like I do, from Nordic Naturals. It’s a lovely brand, though expensive.

  79. Jenné, you look so healthy and beautiful! and I love your recipes!

    1. @Erin Kim Thank you so much Erin!! xoxo

  80. There is no need for supplements, especially not for people that eat as healthy as you. With supplements you train your body that there is always huge amounts of for example Vit.C and it gets dependent. Better train your bodies natural ability to use the nutrients of natural foods efficient. Greets & LOVE from Germany 🙂

    1. Pseudoscience

  81. Very informative. Thanks for this video! 🙂

  82. You’re very sweet Jenne, thanks for sharing your story. However supplements can be harmful and most of the time they’re useless. The best supplement is in the whole foods.

    I recommend everyone PLEASE do your research and ask your plant based doctor before you take any supplement. You can research taking supplements on nutritionfacts. org and drmcdougall. com

    ●Vitamin C is in whole variety of foods as you knew
    ●Vitamin B is in sublingual B tablets or nutritional yeast etc
    ●Dha, EPA comes from dark leafy plants so you can get your omega 3 from plants, walnuts, flax seeds it will turn to dha and epa. Source: pcrm. org
    ●And about zinc I will recommend eating plant based foods as well such as nuts and seeds (mustard seeds) and legumes and so on

    1. +applepie irt to vitamin supplements being toxic… I do believe the conventional store bought, non-veGan, animal gel cap vitamins…not plant based, veGan ones. We can’t lump all supplements… you are so right irt whole foods being the best choice… but life and circumstances dictate certain actions for me, so I have recently decided it is best for me to supplement with plant based vitamins… I am currently on search/research journey… thankhz so much for sharing your information… Wholeness n Love ((-;

    2. @SweetPotatoSoul you’re amazing Jenne keep up the good work 😊 I love watching you and thank you for all you do. If you don’t mind I feel like I must tell you what I know the best from the research I’ve done so far is that please get vitamin C from whole foods only. It’s easy to get enough Vitamin C from fruits daily. Vitamin C found in supplements can be toxic and useless in most cases. (www.nutritionfacts.org is the source of this information)
      I hope this may help someone. Just would like to see you’re feeling the best. And I wanted to encourage everyone make research before using any drugs. Sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused. Take care 😊❤

    3. @hocuspocus Thank you!! I agree, the best supplement is whole foods. I have definitely seen improvements in my skin and immunity when taking supplements (particularly zinc and vitamin C). I definitely haven’t been sick, and my skin really cleared up with these two. The jury is still out on these things. Especially omega-3s. I picked these up to help with my perceived lack of focus when working. It could just be a placebo effect, but that’s alright with me 🙂 You’re totally right, we should all do our own research beyond watching Youtube videos. I have done mine, and I choose to stick with supplements. 

      I wanted to make this video to share what I use, and to get the convo started around this touchy issue. I’m so glad it has 🙂 Thank you so much for watching and sharing your opinions!!! I’m so grateful, and truly interested in hearing everyone’s POV. 

      xo

    4. Just a note about nutritional yeast: They don’t all have B12. Nutritional yeast only has B12 if it has been fortified. So just be careful as this is such an important nutrient. We no longer get it from our soil because of food hygiene practices and soil depletion so a supplement is a good idea. 

    5. @hocuspocus …What?? I understand eating a whole foods plant based diet. I only eat whole vegan foods. What I’m saying is that our fruit and veg isn’t as nutrient dense due to soil depletion. We’ve wrecked it.
