    Just because you are vegan, doesn't mean you should miss out on the full range of health-boosting supplements. 

    In fact, as a vegan, you can really benefit from the addition of a well-formulated range of protein powders, multivitamins and energy enhancers.

    We offer a vegan-friendly format of all our main supplement types, from pre-workout formulas to fat burners and creatine powders.

    Let's delve into what we have on offer, as well as which products can best suit your vegan needs.

    What is a vegan diet?

    A vegan diet excludes anything originating from an animal including eggs, dairy, meat and as well as fish and honey. 

    What supplements should a vegan take?

    Amino Acids

    Supplementing amino acids can ensure you get the full range of both essential and non-essential AA’s which may be harder to obtain on an exclusively plant-based diet. These extra AA’s can help with muscle building and recovery post-high-intensity exercise.


    Creatine is the number one supplement of choice for enhanced muscle hypertrophy (growth). It has been shown to reduce fatigue during exercise and supports muscle growth afterwards. It can be particularly useful for vegans who may be lacking in specific amino acids.

    Energy and Endurance

    Vegan or not, pre, intra and post-workout supplements help you to get the most out of your workout, with caffeine to get you going pre-workout, intra-carb intake to support glycogen stores and post-workout supplements to increase muscle recovery. 

    Fat Burners

    Adopting a vegan diet can be a good way to support your weight loss goals, but sometimes we need a little bit of extra help. This is where fat burners come in, as they can support the body’s natural thermogenesis to increase your metabolic rate.

    Protein and Gainers

    Vegans who are looking to gain muscle mass can really benefit from supplementary protein intake - ideally post-exercise, to support new muscle growth. Vegan protein powders are an easy and convenient way to up your levels. 

    Vitamins and Minerals

    Vegans can benefit from extra vitamin and mineral support to make up for any deficiencies, a good multivitamin can cover most bases, and additional B12, Iron, Calcium and Vit D can make a real difference to your general health.
