I have recently become vegan and I am struggling with tiredness what do you recommend?
Sometimes tiredness is linked with nutritional changes. It is possible to get all the nutrients you need from a wholefood vegetarian diet, but not from a vegan diet which cuts out eggs and dairy foods as well as meats and fish.
To safeguard your intake of certain vitamins such as D and B12, minerals such as iron and zinc, and the long-chain omega-3s (EPA and DHA) it is a good idea to take certain supplements. A good range of vegan-friendly supplements is now available, including multivitamins, omega-3s derived from algae and now even vitamin D supplements from algae sources such as Healthspan’s new Vegan Super Strength Vitamin D3 25mcg*.
If your symptoms don’t improve or get worse do seek medical advice in case you need investigations for the cause of your tiredness.
