What kinds of nutrients do vegans lack?

    With the right amount of attention to your vegan diet, it is actually able to get a sufficient amount of all nutrients, though taking dietary supplements may be recommended.  If you do not plan your vegan diet well enough, then you may find you are getting low levels of calcium, iodine, vitamin B12 and vitamin D.

    Vegans theoretically shouldn’t have a problem getting any vitamins.  Most of the nutrients found in meats, eggs and dairy can be found in leafy greens, beans and soy.  However, it’s dependent on what the individual vegan eats.  Usually iron is the most “difficult” to replace (although it isn’t really — it just involves a bit more thought).  At any rate, there are supplements on the market that are specially formulated for vegans, just in case.
