A couple of weeks ago, I set my sights on trying to stick to a plant-based diet for the first time ever. Growing up in a household where the majority of my family members were pescatarians (some fully vegetarian), I wasn’t unfamiliar with the necessary rewards and challenges that came from a diet where veggies and fruits reigned king.
In the beginning, everything seemed to be going smoothly, but after a couple of days, I felt my body lacking the usual energy I was used to. Curious I reached out to my doctor to see if there was anything I could do to get back to my regular ol’ self. I soon found out that my body was finding it just a bit hard to adjust to my new lifestyle, as I wasn’t getting enough of certain kinds of nutrients anymore.
My doctor then recommended adding a vegan multivitamin into my daily routine as a way to fill in the gaps in my newfound diet, which led me to ultimately find (and kinda fall in love with) Seedwell’s Vegan & Veggie multivitamin.
The multivitamin had the nutrients I was missing.
I didn’t realize how much my body was missing these ingredients until after my initial trial period of trying out the multivitamin when I slowly but surely started to feel like myself again. Seedwell’s Vegan & Veggie multivitamin features the nine essential nutrients most plant-based dieters need like vitamin B12, iron, zinc, iodine, calcium, and more. It also includes vitamin D3, which they source from premium shiitake mushrooms.
Besides all the nutritional perks, it also tastes great going down, never leaving that funky, metallic taste in your mouth, and for $33 for a container of 60 tablets, the price isn’t too shabby either. Plus, Women’s Health readers can now score 15 percent off with the code WH15!
Not everyone is fit for a multivitamin.
It’ll come as no surprise when I tell you that everybody is different, meaning that what I may need in a supplement might not be exactly what you need. Navya Mysore, MD, who is not affiliated with Seedwell, explained multivitamins may not be for everyone; it all depends on your lifestyle.
“I suggest a multivitamin if a patient tells me they travel a lot and don’t have too much control over what they can eat and the choices on their plate,” says Mysore. “Or if it’s a busy time in their life with many priorities pulling them in different directions and for that period of time they cannot focus as much time as they would like on their food choices—this would also be a good place for a multivitamin.”
Overall it made my plant-based diet experience easier.
While I’m no longer on a plant-based diet, I don’t think my experience would’ve been as great if I didn’t have a multivitamin like Seedwell to help my body along the way. I felt the difference just after a couple of weeks of taking this supplement, and my friends and family could tell I was doing better too. (TBH, half of my family members are now full-on Seedwell converters.)
If you’re looking to try out any of Seedwell’s vitamins, here’s what you should know: You can purchase a single container of 60 tablets for $33. If you want to save a little bit of cash (or if you have multiple vegan eaters under one roof), you can subscribe for a 3-month supply that will ship all out at once for $84.
Shipping for all of these plans is always free, and you can cancel your subscription at any time. Just don’t forget to enter the code WH15 at checkout for 15 percent off!
