Iron is less available in plant-based diets, meaning iron-deficiency anaemia is especially common in menstruating vegan women, causing tiredness, shortness of breath, light-headedness or hair loss. There is a moderate amount of iron in fortified cereals, leafy greens, pumpkin, peas, beans, lentils, nuts and seeds. Making sure you also get enough vitamin C (e.g. from citrus fruits) improves the absorption of iron.
Therefore, at Vegan Collective we are making sure that we are supplying the right products to ensure a healthy vegan diet. We are selling Pulsin Chocolate Pea Protein Powder which is a great source protein, zinc and iron. You simply add it to milk or water for a great tasting protein drink or add it to your favourite smoothies, porridge, cereal or recipes for an extra protein boost.
