The 5 Best Vegan Vitamin Brands in 2020

T

I can’t be the only one who thinks it’s weird that many vitamin B12 supplements aren’t vegan.

It makes things way harder than they need to be.

That’s why I did some research and found the most popular vitamin brands that only sell vegan products, or at least mark them very clearly.

If you see any of these brands in a store, online or offline, you’ll be able to tell if the vitamins are vegan or not quickly.

If you’re specifically interested in a multivitamin, check out my post of the best vegan multivitamins.

1. Future Kind

I’m a big fan of Future Kind, they do a lot of things right:

  • Products are made specifically for vegans
  • All products are third-party tested in the US for quality
  • Ship worldwide
  • Reasonable prices
  • Always uses the highest quality ingredients (e.g. vitamin D3 vs D2)

We’ve also partnered up with Future Kind so that you can get a discount:

2. DEVA

DEVA is probably the best known supplement company that only makes vegan products.

If you see DEVA, it’s good.

They make a pretty broad line of vitamins, including the big ones like vitamin B12, C, D, and E. There’s also a few multivitamins that combine the main ones.

They also have a few mineral supplements like calcium and iron.

3. Garden of Life

Garden of Life is known for their raw, vegan supplements. They make protein powders, but also a wide range of vitamins.

You can find vitamin B12, C, D3, E, and K, as well as multivitamins and prenatal vitamins.

On top of that, they have zinc and iron mineral supplements.

One neat thing about Garden of Life products is that some of them are sprays (like B12), which is a unique alternative to standard pills or gummies.

4. MRM

MRM vitamins

Like Garden of Life, MRM is known for their other vegan supplements, mostly protein and general health supplements.

However, they have a limited line of vitamins as well. MRM is a good choice if you’re looking for a vegan vitamin D3 or K2.

5. Doctor’s Best

Doctors Best vitamins

Finally, Doctor’s Best is not a solely vegan company.

However, they do have a huge range of supplements, and the ones that are vegan are clearly marked with a green vegan label on the front of the product (as you can probably see in the picture above).

They have pretty much every individual vitamin you could need: B, C, D, E, K.

They also have mineral supplements like calcium, iron, and magnesium.

6. MaryRuth

The majority of MaryRuth supplements are vegan friendly.

Aside from standard pill forms, they also come in gummy and liquid forms, which can be convenient.

They don’t have the biggest range of products, but they do have a few multivitamins, as well as individual vitamin D3, B2, and CoQ10 enzyme.

  • THANK YOU for your great article on the best VEGAN vitamins! It’s always good to have more opinions in our tangled world of brands, qualities, prices, etc. I’ve been using exclusively the Deva vitamins and they were good in answering my questions in the past. However lately I contacted them twice about why not having higher units of their new Vitamin D3, since I used to take their Vitamin 2 in 2400 IUs, but no answer. I see in the other brands you show they offer up to 5000 IUs!

    If you ever get into investigating this part of the Deva vitamin business I’d be most eager to read it. 🙂

  • Thanks Dale for the helpful info. Like you- I’ve been a vegan for (at least 20) years primarily because I had very high cholesterol levels and lots of heart attacks in the family. I’m getting older (now63)and I’ve put on lots of weight,and have been feeling very lethargic, and sluggish, especially in the last five years since my dad died of cancer. A year or two ago my wife (a nurse) convinced me I needed to take vitamin B12., so I started purchasing and consuming an affordable (what I thought was) quality brand from Walmart.
    Lately, something I heard (somewhere I dont remember where now) had been nawing at me and challenging me this statement “ why do think it’s called magnesium STEERate (because it comes from cattle).” When I looked it up I was shocked. Not only was that vitamin tainted but so were many others with animal products. Especially hideous to me we’re the pork products being used. Let me explain. If I were starving on an island- even though I’m a vegan- I would consider eating a kosher fish or a kosher wild chicken, but the Bible says don’t even consider them (pigs) fit for human consumption and admonishes us to abstain from them for they weren’t made for humans to eat. I had learned that when I was in my twenty’s and been abstaining from Biblically unclean animal products since long before I had become a vegan in my forty’s.That was especially jarring to me. When I researched some of the other vitamin and mineral supplements, I’ve started to take-lately, I was shaken to find many of them have animal products with benign, unrecognizable, scientific names that hide the fact that they’re using animal parts. Thank you for the information list where we can find quality, affordable vegan supplements. Blessings to you for your truth telling.
