How to Get Vitamins A, D, E, & K on a Raw Vegan Diet
Think you can’t get enough fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K on a raw food diet?
Check out my video below to learn how you can get plenty of these necessary nutrients:
- You’ll get TONS of beta-carotene from fruits and vegetables, which your body can then convert to retinal (vitamin A)
- Called the sunshine vitamin for a reason
- Those who are deficient don’t spend enough time outdoors, live too far away from the equator, or both.
- Eat enough calories and get in your greens and you’ll get plenty
- Magnesium is necessary for proper absorption, a mineral that you’ll get plenty of from fruits and vegetables.
- You’ll get TONS of vitamin K1 from fruits and vegetables (e.g. 8 ounces of romaine has over 4x the RDA).
What About K2?
Today, everyone is up in arms over vitamin K2, a form of vitamin K that has links to proper blood clotting and arterial health. The problem is that K2 is only found in animal products (or is it?).
But is vitamin K2 really necessary? Must we consume animal products or supplements in order to get enough and ensure optimal health on a raw food diet?
