The Basics of Supplements
In this episode of the Vegetarian Zen podcast we discuss the basics of dietary supplements. We don’t delve into which vitex supplements vegans need, or how to know if you should take a supplement; we do talk about what supplements are, what information is contained on supplement bottle labels, what those “certified by” stickers mean, and what animal-derived ingredients are commonly used in supplements.
