For me, it's really important to fuel my body to make sure it's performing its best.

That means a healthy diet, getting a good night's sleep, making sure I'm drinking enough water and taking the right supplements that my body needs. I've been incorporating Vitabiotics Wellwoman Vegan supplement into my life for a while now to help make sure I'm getting all the necessary nutrients while following a vegetarian lifestyle!

Nutritional support for vegans and vegetarians

Wellwoman Vegan has been specially developed for women who are following a vegetarian or vegan diet. With 24 nutrients, it provides unique vegetarian and vegan support in the Wellwoman range, the UK’s No1 supplement brand for women. Wellwoman Vegan has been officially approved by both the Vegetarian Society and the Vegan Society.

Wellwoman Vegan has been officially registered with the Vegan Society and the Vegetarian Society. vegan

There are a number of reasons why women following a vegetarian or vegan diet may need to safeguard their nutritional intake.

Lower intake levels of zinc in the diet can be more common for vegetarians. Zinc is scientifically proven to contribute to the normal function of the immune system, as well as for the maintenance of normal skin, hair and nails.

The body needs vitamin B12 to support normal red blood cell formation and to support the immune system. It’s usually found naturally in foods from animal sources, therefore a reliable supplement is often recommended if you are a vegan or vegetarian.

Specialist nutrition just for women

More people are turning to vegetarian and vegan diets as a lifestyle choice, for a multitude of reasons including health benefits and moral and ethical concerns.

It's estimated that around 2% of the UK population is vegetarian, which is more than 1.2 million people. What’s more, at least 542,000 people in Britain are now following a vegan diet, which is a massive increase since the last estimate 10 years ago of 150,000 (Vegan Society, 2017).

Female Health

Women generally have higher iron requirement than men, partly on account of blood losses during the menstrual cycle. The most common source of iron is red meat, hence when following a vegetarian or vegan diet it’s important to make sure you receive enough iron from alternative sources. Iron contributes to normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin, an important consideration during the monthly cycle.

Vitamin B12 is naturally found in animal products, including fish, meat, poultry, eggs, milk, and milk products. Vitamin B12 is generally not present in plant foods, so it’s also important to ensure you get enough. Vitamin B12 contributes to red blood cell formation.

Wellwoman Vegan has been specially developed to provide higher levels of iron and vitamin B12 (when compared to Wellwoman Original).

The Wellwoman Vegan formulation provides vitamin B6 which contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity. It also includes 400mcg folic acid which contributes to normal maternal tissue growth during pregnancy, which is important if you're planning a pregnancy or there's a chance you might get pregnant.

General health and wellbeing

Vitamin D plays an important role in the body for all round health and wellness. Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth and the normal function of the immune system. The most common sources of vitamin D are from non-vegan sources in the form of D3. I.e. oily fish, butter and egg yolk. Wellwoman Vegan provides 10µg of vegetarian and vegan vitamin D2, the exact level as recommended by the UK Department of Health.

Every vegan needs a reliable source of iodine in their diet. Your body uses iodine contribute to the normal production of thyroid hormones and normal thyroid function. These hormones control how fast your cells work. In the UK, the recommended iodine intake for adults is 150 micrograms per day. There is no easy way of knowing how much iodine is in plant foods. While seaweed is a rich source, the amount of iodine in a plant food varies depending on how much is in the soil the plant is grown in. Wellwoman Vegan provides exactly 150mcg iodine.

Wellwoman Vegan includes Evening Primrose and Starflower Oil in a unique powder form that allows a tablet format, eliminating the need for a capsule shell.

Live life well

Leading a hectic lifestyle, juggling work, family and social commitments can often leave you feeling in need of some extra support. Wellwoman Vegan contains vitamin C, iron, copper and iodine which contribute to normal energy release. Iodine also contributes to normal cognitive function. The formula also provides folate which contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, helping you keep on top of your day.

Skin, hair and nails

We all want to do the best that we can for our health and appearance. Vitabiotics knows that what you put inside your body has an enormous impact on your internal health and outer appearance.

Vitamin C is a co-factor for collagen synthesis, the substance that keeps skin supple. Wellwoman Vegan provides vitamin C which contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin. The formula also includes selenium and zinc contribute to the maintenance of normal hair and nails plus iodine which contributes to normal skin.

How do we define Vegetarianism and Veganism?

We hear these terms being used everywhere, but do they actually mean?

A vegetarian is someone who lives on a diet of non-animal based foods, with or without dairy products, honey and/or eggs. A vegetarian does not eat foods that consist of or have been produced with products consisting of or created from any part of the living or dead animal. (Vegetarian Society, 2017).

Following a vegan diet is stricter. The Vegan Society describe Veganism as “A philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude—as far as is possible and practicable—all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals." (Vegan Society, 2017)

Tips for vegetarians and vegans

  • A healthy and balanced vegetarian diet should be low in saturated fat and high in whole grains, fresh fruit and vegetables.
  • It is recommended to eat at least five portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables every day. ‘Eat the rainbow’ - choose fruit and veg of different colours.
  • Vegetarians and vegans can lack in certain nutrients, those of special focus should include protein, iron, zinc and vitamin B12.
  • Protein has many important functions in the body and is essential for growth and maintenance. Vegetarian and vegan protein sources include nuts, beans, pulses and soya products.
  • Zinc is needed in the body to provide support to the immune system. Some vegetarian and vegan sources of zinc include beans, whole grains, nuts and soya products.
  • Iron is essential to the body to prevent having an iron deficiency or even anaemia. Vegetarian sources of iron can be found in dried fruit, wholegrains, soya products and most leafy dark-green vegetables.

Wellwoman Vegan FAQ

Why has Wellwoman Vegan been developed?

Wellwoman Vegan has been developed specifically for women following a vegetarian or vegan diet. This comprehensive daily multivitamin contains a wide range of nutrients and trace elements including evening primrose and starflower oil. Wellwoman Vegan is unlike other general multivitamin and mineral supplements in that it carefully balances micronutrient levels and gives support to the areas of health which are of most relevance to women. The formula includes a vegetarian and vegan form of vitamin D plus higher levels of iron and vitamin B12 (compared to Wellwoman Original) especially for vegetarian or vegan diets. Top

When is Wellwoman Vegan recommended?

Wellwoman Vegan is recommended for women of all ages as a daily nutritional safeguard for general health and vitality. Wellwoman Vegan is ideal for those women following a vegetarian or vegan diet and who lead an active lifestyle. The formula contains a wide range of nutrients and trace elements to support the areas of health which are of most interest to women including Vitamin B6 which contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity, plus iron which contributes to normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin, an important consideration during the monthly cycle. Top

Can Wellwoman Vegan be taken during pregnancy and breast-feeding?

During pregnancy, we would recommend a multivitamin supplement specially formulated for pregnancy, such as Pregnacare. Pregnacare (from Vitabiotics) contains a careful combination of 19 vitamins and minerals, can be used from before conception, throughout the whole of pregnancy, and also whilst breast-feeding. Pregnacare Original and Pregnacare Liquid are the only products within the range suitable for vegetarians (not suitable for vegans). Pregnacare is recommended as soon as you start trying for a baby. However, there is no problem if you become pregnant whilst taking Wellwoman Vegan, since it contains 400µg folic acid and 10µg vitamin D, as recommended by the UK Department of Health. Wellwoman may be used during breast-feeding if required. Top

Can Wellwoman Vegan be taken simultaneously with other medication?

Generally, Wellwoman may be used alongside medications, because it contains only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals, and is free from any drugs or hormones. Wellwoman may also be used alongside the contraceptive pill. For specific advice on taking Wellwoman with medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first. Top

How many tablets does one pack of Wellwoman Vegan contain?

Wellwoman Vegan is available in 60 Tablets (1 months’ supply). It is recommended to take two tablets per day. Top

Are there any undesired effects while taking Wellwoman?

Wellwoman has no known side effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended tablet intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately. Top

Need help swallowing a tablet or capsule?

Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively and recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider to swallow the chewed food and so the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively, the tablets may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. Top

What are the active ingredients?

Please see nutritional information click here Top

How long does it take to experience any benefit?

Results vary amongst individuals, but in most cases, we would expect the beneficial effects of the vitamins and minerals in Wellwoman to build over several weeks, with noticeable results in one to three months. There is no maximum length of time over which Wellwoman may be used. A regular intake is recommended. Top

Some Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) levels are above 100%, is this safe?

Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the NRV, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the NRV. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to be considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.

The Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the NRV, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% NRV.

All Vitabiotics products have been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of vitamins and minerals, while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.

Vitabiotics avoids 'mega dose’ levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe, moderate and sensible levels of vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect; an approach which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.
