The 3 Best Vegan Multivitamins in Canada

T

Most guides to the best vegan multivitamins are American-centric.

Those products are not always easy for us to get up here in Canada.

So, I wanted to make a guide specifically for fellow Canadians. All the products that are mentioned in this guide are easily available in Canada, and can be shipped here if needed without crazy shipping fees.

Important Nutrients in Vegan Multivitamins

Some multivitamins happen to be vegan, but they’re not really “good” for vegans.

Because of our plant-based diet we usually have way more than enough of most vitamins, and certain minerals.

But we’re also more likely to be deficient in (source):

  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin D (the D3 form is much better than D2)
  • Omega 3 fats
  • Iron

So we ideally need a multivitamin that focuses on these nutrients (B12 and D are arguably the most important).

If you regularly give blood, prioritize getting a multivitamin with iron.

The 3 Best Vegan Multivitamins for Canadians

All of these multivitamins are “good,” but the best one for you will depend on personal preferences.

Therefore, I’ll lay out the most important strengths and weaknesses of each product, which should help you choose one.

Here’s a quick comparison table; the full explanations are below it.

1. Future Kind Essential Multivitamin for Vegans

future kind multivitamin

This multivitamin, like everything else Future Kind makes, is specifically made for vegans.

It focuses just on the essentials. The only things in it are:

  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin D3
  • Omega 3 fats (from algae)

They come in a reasonably small and easy to swallow vegan softgel, and they ship worldwide without crazy shipping fees.

The only real downside is that there’s no iron. Most vegans don’t necessarily need extra iron as long as they eat vegan foods high in iron, but if you give blood it really helps.

2. NATURELO One Daily Multivitamin

Naturelo makes both a multivitamin for men and women, which both happen to be vegan. The one linked here is the “women’s” version, which I think is better for vegans of any gender since it contains iron.

So while they have a bunch of unnecessary nutrients, they do contain good amounts of the essentials:

  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin D
  • Iron

There’s no omega 3 fats, which is pretty standard for multivitamins.

It’s a good supplement at a reasonable price. One final potential downside to mention is that it comes in fairly large pills which may be difficult to swallow.

3. Veganly One-Daily Vegan Vitamins

veganly multivitamin

As you can tell by the name, this multivitamin was specifically made for vegans. It’s good, but I feel like they could have done a better job still.

The strengths of it is that it’s well-rounded. It contains:

  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin D (although in D2 form, which is suboptimal)
  • Iron

However, it also has pretty much every other vitamin and mineral. In other words, it’s pretty much a generic multivitamin with “vegan” put in the brand name.

That’s not necessarily a terrible thing, but I personally prefer an approach like Future Kind takes that only includes nutrients that vegans have a tough time getting from their diet.

Finally, it’s the most expensive (not by a huge margin though) of the top multivitamins on this page. It seems like you’re paying extra for the vegan in the title.

  • What are your thoughts on the Platinum Naturals Easymulti Vegan? I see these in pretty much every natural health food store, but they’re on the pricey side.

    • I haven’t seen them before.

      The information about it on their website is pretty terrible.

      From what I can see, it doesn’t seem like it really justifies a high price. Both the vitamin D (as D2) and omega 3s (as ALA) are the worst forms for absorption. It’s nice that it has some iron/B12 at least though.

      Not great, but decent product, but it sounds like the price is higher than it should be.
