Veganism has been on the rise for a while now. Many celebrities have adopted a vegan lifestyle and some have even started promoting it. How come?
The advantages of plant-based diets have been studied over several years.
The most extensive study till date is probably the China Study. It is often referred to as the “vegan bible”, as it makes a pretty strong case for a plant-based diet.

Surprisingly, many people struggle with symptoms like fatigue and mild depression in the winter, yet few realize that the reason for their problems might be vitamin deficiency.
Oftentimes the assumption is: “I eat normal food and lead a normal life, I´ve always managed without supplements or additional help!”

It's also good to remember that cold weather can affect your entire body in a number of ways adding extra challenges. After all, our body is not a machine!

While we are surrounded by an ever increasing number of nutritional supplements and health products, we often know surprisingly little about them. In this blog post we want to take a closer look at some little known facts and misconceptions surrounding vitamins and supplements.

The name is no coincidence: it is the only vitamin whose supply is not mainly provided by food, but by the sun. And this is exactly where the problem lies. Especially in the dark winter months, a D vitamin deficiency can easily occur in our latitudes.

In this blog post, we explain how to recognize a deficiency, what causes it, and how you can easily correct a deficiency with supplementation.
