Though the benefits of a plant-based diet are well-documented, veganism is still sometimes met with scepticism. Seriously, raise your hand if you feel personally victimized by the question, "Do you get enough protein?" But, when you follow any diet that cuts out entire food groups, you need to be super diligent about making sure you get all the nutrients your body needs.

"Every body is different and individual needs vary," Kelcie Harris, ND says. "If one would like precise guidance, including dose, of what they as an individual may need to supplement with, I suggest they consult their physician." That said, there are some supplements that you may want to chat with your doctor about incorporating into your diet when you're vegan, based on common nutrient deficiencies. Below, experts give their advice on the best supplements for vegans.
