Plant Based Calcium Supplements

Calcium & Mineral Supplements

Minerals like calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc are essential for our bodies to function properly. Although we can get these minerals from eating healthy food, we may not be getting enough. Today’s food is grown in mineral-depleted soil and is less nutritious than the food of previous generations. A vegan, vegetarian, or dairy-free diet can also limit our consumption of minerals. Taking mineral supplements can help replenish these important nutrients. Find our selection of premium mineral supplements here.

Calcium is one of the most commonly taken mineral supplements. Calcium is essential for healthy bone density, which is a common health concern for older adults, especially post-menopausal women. It’s important to make sure that calcium is metabolized properly, so that it doesn’t end up in arteries and soft tissues. Calcium needs nutrients like vitamin D, vitamin K2, and magnesium to help your body metabolize it well. Our plant-based Bone Strength calcium mineral supplements include all of these helper nutrients and more to help support healthy calcium metabolism and stronger bones.*

Magnesium is important not only for bone health, but also for stress support, healthy sleep, muscle relaxation, blood sugar management, and more.* Unfortunately, magnesium is one of the most common mineral deficiencies, making magnesium mineral supplements all the more important. Our collection includes both a Magnesium Glycinate Chelate Whole Food Complex mineral supplement and a delicious Magnesium Whole Food Drink Powder.

Iron is another mineral that many people are deficient in. Iron is important for building healthy blood, and can be lost through monthly menstruation. Many vegans and vegetarians also tend to be low in iron. Our Vegan Iron mineral supplements can help restore depleted iron levels.* And everyone should have a zinc supplement handy to support the immune system when bugs are going around. Both our Vegan Zinc and Vegan Iron mineral supplements include plant-based vitamin C from acerola cherry and a whole food vegetable blend.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What are the most important mineral supplements to take?

Some of the most important minerals that you may need to supplement are calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc. Calcium and magnesium are important for healthy bone density. Magnesium also helps with nervous tension, stress, and sleep. Iron is important for building healthy blood, which affects your energy and alertness. If you feel fatigued and light-headed, you should have your iron levels checked. Zinc is a great mineral supplement to have on hand for extra immune support when needed.*

What helps with the absorption of mineral supplements?

Mineral supplements that are chelated tend to be more easily absorbed and gentler on the stomach. Check the label for the word “chelate”, such as magnesium glycinate chelate or ferrous bisglycinate chelate (iron). Taking mineral supplements with the right supporting ingredients also helps with absorption. For instance, calcium is absorbed better when it’s combined with vitamin D, magnesium, and vitamin K2, and iron is absorbed better when taken with vitamin C.

What mineral supplements do vegans and vegetarians need?

Many vegans and vegetarians are low in iron, because the form of iron that’s in plant-based foods is harder for our bodies to absorb than the iron that’s in animal foods. Vegans or those who avoid dairy products are also more likely to need extra calcium. Taking mineral supplements can help replenish low levels of these minerals.
